Greece has over 2,900 islands, countless beaches and over 200 days of sunshine per year, so it is no wonder it is one of the most popular holiday destinations.
On a 10 day Best of Greece tour you’ll get to experience the stunning islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Ios, discover their flawless beauty, unreal beaches, vibrant towns, epic nightlife and learn about the history in the capital of Athens.
Day 1 – Arrival
Welcome to Greece! You will meet fellow passengers and your tour leader and will get a
good idea of how the week is going to unfold. There will be an optional dinner to get to know the group.
Day 2 – Athens
Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece; it is one of the world’s oldest cities with
history spanning back over 3,400 years and is widely referred to as the cradle of Western Civilization
and the birthplace of democracy. Our tour will take you to numerous sites, including The Temple of
Zeus, Parthenon and Acropolis to name a few. The night is yours; free to explore more of this beautiful city.
Day 3 – Mykonos
An early start is made to catch the ferry from Athens to Mykonos. In the afternoon once
you’ve arrived in Mykonos there will be a brief orientation walk, where you will be given some tips
to explore the rest of the island on your own. It is no coincidence that this is the most cosmopolitan
of all the Greek Islands and attracts thousands of visitors from around the world.
Day 4 – The day is yours to explore
You have a free day in Mykonos. Mykonos Town (Chora) is the picturesque Greek island,
with the fishing boats bobbing side by side with the luxury boats, the whitewashed streets, beaches,
restaurants and bars; you will not be short of things to explore.
Day 5 – Santorini
Today you depart by ferry from Mykonos to Santorini; an island formed by volcanic activity.
It has been said that the sunsets here are the best in the world. From the Caldera, watch breath-
taking views of the volcano and neighbouring islands. Being one of the major tourist attractions of
Europe with its marvellous climate and perfect observation conditions, Santorini will offer you a wild
beauty created from the volcano that lies in the middle of the bay.
Day 6 – Free day to explore, optional quad biking
Today you will have free time to explore the island. Hire a quad bike perhaps and see what the island has to offer.
Day 7 – Ios
In the morning you will take a ferry to Ios, a famous tourist destination. Visitors come here for its golden beaches and the characteristic Aegean architecture. It is well known as the party island
with the lively atmosphere and the endless fun. The capital is built at the point where the ancient
city was, where white houses unfold and its windmills and narrow small roads can be seen on the hill
tops. An epic party night is waiting for you.
Day 8 – Relax on the beach
Feeling a little hazy? A chill day is waiting for you in Ios. The beach sounds like a good idea!
Day 9 – Ferry to Athens
