Detailed Description

Indulge in the vacation of a lifetime as you embark on a weeklong, adventure-driven tour through Greece to experience most of the must-see sights. Throughout your Greek getaway, you will be immersed in the mythos and magic of the legendary Acropolis, inspired by the striking calderas of Santorini, and captivated by the breathtaking countryside of Mykonos. This vacation package offers a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the ancient past, and as always, is entirely customizable at your pleasure.

Your trip will begin in Athens, which is also known as the cradle of Western civilization. Tidbits of philosophy and mythology will fill your mind as you enter the legendary Acropolis and traverse the same steps as Socrates and Plato. Your guide will also engagingly detail the subtle distinctions in architecture and artists as you arrive at the enduring Beule Gate, explore the elegant Temple of Nike Athena, and ascend to the infamous Parthenon. In the afternoon, you will embark on an evening trip to the striking Temple of Poseidon, where you will have the opportunity to unearth this remarkable temple and watch a world-famous Athenian sunset.

The following day, you will depart for the lovely island of Santorini on a private aircraft. During your time here, you can cherish the infamous blue-domed and white villas that line the cliffside on this legendary island while kayaking through the Aegean Sea. That afternoon, you can savor the aromatic tang of the local volcanic, infused grapes during a sommelier-guided wine tour. You will also have the opportunity to sail the seas on a yacht before learning how to cook your catch with a masterful Santorini chef.

For your final destination, you will move from the seas to the skies and travel from Santorini to the mystical island of Mykonos on a helicopter tour. During your flight, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of Santorini’s underwater volcanoes and the Greek islands in the distance. You will spend the remainder of your afternoon uncovering magnificent sites, such as the House of Cleopatra and the Theatre Quarter at the Delos Ruins. On your final day in Greece, you will tour the Mykonos Windmill Farms. These beautiful and iconic windmills were constructed in the 16th Century and allowed this island to serve as a vital stopping point for merchants. Your final afternoon will be spent the way any final afternoon in Greece should be spent: basking in the sunshine, diving through the peaceful waters, and relaxing on a sandy beach.
