Your journey begins in Athens, the capital of Greece and one of the most influential cities in the world. You’ll meet up with your group and get your first introduction to the sights of this ancient city with a panoramic coach tour. The next day, explore the city in more detail on a city tour. Every stop brings with it a new historical monument, from the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first Olympics were held, to Hadrian’s Arch and Constitution Square. At the famous Acropolis, you’ll see the Parthenon, one of the greatest ancient monuments in the world. That evening, explore trendy Plaka if you have time, where good food and nightlife abound.

From Athens, connect to Mykonos, where you’ll delve into the history of the island and see its collection of historical landmarks and natural attractions. During your tour, you’ll see the Orthodox Monastery at Panagia Tourliani, enjoy the beach at Kalafatis, and stroll through the labyrinthine streets of Chora. The next day is fully at leisure for you to take advantage of the famous beaches and endless entertainment options of Mykonos. If you have a taste for nightlife, you’ll enjoy the nightly beachside parties.

The final stop on your group tour of Greece is Santorini, the famous whitewashed island of the Aegean. Head on a half-day tour that takes you to Oia, the northernmost point on the island that offers great views over the surrounding volcanic islets, and Fira, originally known as Hora, the centrepiece of the island, with its whitewashed homes sitting on cliffs 260m above the sea. You’ll have two full days on Santorini to take full advantage of its beaches and historical sights. Explore on your own or relax on the famous sands.

At the end of your stay, you’ll depart Santorini and connect back to Athens where you’ll bid your group farewell and return home.
