Detailed Description

When you think of ancient history, mythology, and the beginning of civilization, one singular destination first comes to mind: Greece. Greece is a fascinating nation that is filled with a wealth of historical roots that can be seen in every locale from the stunning architecture that is located here to the mythological tales that can be found at the tip of every local’s tongue. With such an abundance of history, Greece is the perfect destination for your next getaway. Greece is also a melting pot of unique cultures, fine cuisines, and modernity, especially in its capital of Athens

This luxurious, 10-day journey impeccably pairs much of the best that Greece has to offer as you spend half of your time exploring around Athens and the idyllic island of Santorini, which offers a much slower-paced experience. Your first night will find you in Athens, where you will spend your initial evening feasting on an al fresco meal that is filled with only the finest Greek fare. Not only will the food be exquisite, but the spectacular view from your locale at the top of Lycabettus Hill will take your breath away.

Upon waking to your first full day in Athens, it will be fitting that you dive into a day of discovery. Today, you will embark on a VIP tour that will have you wandering among the world’s oldest and most-famed sights, including the Acropolis, Hadrian’s Arch, and the Temple of Zeus. You will even be provided with the opportunity to witness the changing of the guards, which is a must-see during any visit to Athens. A luxurious day cruise to three of Greece’s loveliest islands will follow on day three as you set sail to Agistri, Moni, and Aegina. Here, you will swim, snorkel, relax on sparkling beaches, and be provided with the chance to visit charming seaside villages. Ancient Corinth will beckon to you. This is where you will spend a half-day steeped in history and admiring famed sights like the Corinth Canal as you stroll around the awe-inspiring relics and area that were once an influential ancient Greek and Roman city. Upon your return to Athens this evening, you will indulge in a private cooking class, where you will learn how to craft an authentic Greek meal.

The next half of your Greek adventure will begin as you set sail to Santorini, where you will waste no time in jumping into your first exciting experience, which will be a private wine tasting tour that will introduce you to some of the best vintages of the region. Your first morning in Santorini will find you paddling to your heart’s content on a sea kayak adventure before spending the afternoon exploring the highlights of the city. Your final full day in Greece will be spent on the sea as you embark on a catamaran cruise that will have you snorkeling, swimming, relaxing, and enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of your surroundings. Upon your return to land, your last evening’s event will provide the perfect culmination to your luxurious vacation. You will be provided with the opportunity to horseback ride on the immaculate Eros Beach.

Throughout the duration of your enthralling Greek getaway, you will be staying in luxurious accommodations, and a private driver will be ready to whisk you away to every desired destination. Everything about your tour is entirely customizable, so you can adjust anything and everything about this journey to better suit your moods and desires once you are in Greece. All that is left for you to do is relax and enjoy all that Greece has to offer.
