The ULTIMATE Tour of Greece & The Greek Islands
Maximum 8 passengers

A truly unique 18 Day - 17 Night escorted 'small group' tour & sailing adventure of Greece & the Greek Islands with Food, Fun, Culture & Sun all rolled into one.

PLACES VISITED INCLUDE: Mainland: Athens, Kalambaka, Delphi, Meteora, Nafplion, Marina Alimos - Saronic Gulf Islands: Angistri, Portoheli, Leonidion, Astros, Kounoupi, Ermioni, Hydra - Cycladic Islands: Mykonos & Santorini

Come and experience the magic that is Greece and the Islands of the Saronic Gulf on this classical sailing adventure of a lifetime. Promising fascination, excitement and relaxation; this will be nothing short of the holiday of a lifetime.

Explore the beautiful scenery and natural wonders of the mainland. Classic Art and culture lovers will fall in love with the many historical sites, monuments, original architecture, monasteries, museums and art galleries.
If cultural heritage is your passion then you will bear witness to the place where the ancient world meets the modern as we sail into the historical core of Greece visiting cities and towns that were once the centre of life in ancient times; now more than 5000 years old.

Let your host and support team look after your needs while you relax and discover exotic beaches in the bays of tiny islands and explore secluded coves hidden in the sparkling blue of the Saronic Gulf.

Sail the breathtaking coast and islands from Athens to Peloponnesus and return, island hopping around some of the most spectacular coastline in Europe. While docked at one of the many village or promenades take the chance to meander through the old cobbled streets of the seaside villages and stop in at a cozy cafe' or taverna to soak up a coffee or ouzo whilst watching the locals go about their day.

And what captivating holiday would be complete without the culinary cuisine to match. The creators of this journey share the same passion for food as they do for Greece so rest assured you’re in safe hands as you enjoy the culinary delights of local produce, great food and hospitality both aboard and ashore.

Our aim is to ensure that you experience and enjoy one of the most interesting, relaxing and eventful holidays; all at the same time.
