After your tour, you will join a master chef in crafting a homemade Greek meal.

On day three, some of Greece’s wines and vineyard grounds await your discovery. Today, you will join a sommelier guide on a private wine tasting tour that will lead you to the beautiful countryside. After learning about Greek wine production and strolling through a few vineyards, you will have the chance to sample some of the wines. The following morning, you will venture to the island of Paros to escape the summer bustle of the city. Upon your arrival, your guide will lead you on a walking tour of Old Town Parikia before joining a group of locals for a lovely dinner of homemade island cuisine.

The next day, you will explore the island’s charming fishing villages. Here, you can sample some of the freshest seafood that Greece has to offer. Day six will then find you heading to Mykonos, where a highlights tour will eat up most of your day.
