Itinerary

Day 1 - Athens Welcome to Greece (Overnight Athens)

Athens, a fascinating city filled to the brim with living history and modern excitement. Get ready for a heady few days here. We meet tonight for an ‘aperitivo’ before our Big Fat Greek adventure. We’ll venture out to the Plaka area, this place is so atmospheric - the quintessential Greek scene - and we’ll be indulging in our first authentic Greek meal under the stars with an amazing view of the Acropolis.

Our tours to Greece are well organised, small groups of 12 and great fun.

Dinner and wine included

Day 2 - Athens Ancient Athens Walking Tour (Overnight Athens)

This morning we discover ancient Athens, leaving our hotel to see up close that which is visible all over the city of Athens - the Acropolis. We’ll journey back in time before Christ to when it was first constructed and learn of the turbulent history of the Athenians, the tribe of Athens. We visit the new amazing Acropolis museum with our wonderful guide, Nick. In the afternoon, at leisure, Athens is a treasure to be discovered - what about shopping in the flea market? Athens is a shopper's paradise.

Breakfast

Day 3 - Athens Food Tour of Athens (Overnight Athens)

A Walking Food Tour of Athens: Don’t have your fill at breakfast as today we will discover a myriad of Greek delicacies, those delicious syrupy sweets, loukoumades, (yum) to the savoury pastourma along with feta cheese and tasty Greek olives. We start our tour in a traditional Greek coffee house to taste the 'real' Greek coffee. Our guide is a food expert and we’ll discover aromatic spice shops, colourful delicatessens, dairies and sweet shops. We’ll also visit the bustling central Varvakeios food market - extremely loud, but exciting. Not quite sure whether we will have room for lunch after this walking tour as we will have our fill of tastings. Free afternoon for your own discovery or the many other museums and galleries.

Breakfast included

Day 4 - Mykonos Flight to Mykonos (Overnight Mykonos)

We leave this morning for the exciting island of Mykonos, known as the party island. Who needs that, we’re bringing our own party! Our flight is just 30 minutes and we’ll arrive at lunchtime. Our hotel is slightly out of the main town Chora which is fantastic as this means it is quiet, relaxing with great views. Some might choose to go to the beach for lunch (there are some lovely tavernas close to the hotel. Maybe spend a few hours relaxing here (or just sit by the hotel pool) before we venture into town for dinner in the gorgeous seaside village of Chora.

Breakfast included

Day 5 - Mykonos (Overnight Mykonos)

Take some time out this morning for a little relaxation - - maybe even a sleep in? Take a walk or relax on the beach with a good book. This afternoon Antonis our very entertaining local guide will take us on a scenic tour of Mykonos. We'll hit the most scenic spots have coffee like a local in the delightful town, find the best views of the iconic windmills and amble through the picturesque streets of Chora finding the perfect photograph of the Venetian harbour.

Overnight Athens

Breakfast and lunch with wine included

Day 6 - Mykonos Delos Island (Overnight Mykonos)

This morning we take a boat to Delos Island, one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece. For those who’ve been to Pompei, the comparison is quite stark. This was a holy sanctuary before Olympian Greek mythology made it the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Sound familiar from that Greek mythology you learnt in school? In the afternoon you will have plenty of time to relax overlooking the ocean with a good book, enjoy lunch with stunning views in Chora or a little window shopping might be your thing?

Breakfast included

Day 7 - Santorini (Overnight Santorini)

We say goodbye to the lovely island of Mykonos this morning and we make our way, by ferry, to the stunning island of Santorini, where the beautiful people holiday. We are staying in one of the best spots on the island where people travel from all over the world to photograph this most amazing sunset - it’s legendary. Every room is different and everyone has the best view you could imagine. In the afternoon discover the lovely town where you can sit in a bar or coffee shop on top of a sheer cliff looking out to nothing but stunning views - you’ll never become tired of it though.

Santorini hotels are built into the side of the cliff and consequently have stairs - this tour is not suitable for people with mobility problems. Ours is a cave house hotel, meaning the rooms are built into the hills surrounding the water, they are cave houses.

Breakfast and dinner included

Day 8 - Sanorini Sailing the caldera on our own yacht (Overnight Santorini)

Today we sail the caldera on our own private yacht and it’s gorgeous! We are picked up from the hotel to travel to Amoudi Bay. Here we will cruise the amazingly beautiful caldera with stops at the Black Beach, White Beach and Red Beach and some mineral springs swimming spots. Our crew, the captain and his mate will pamper us with a delicious lunch and a little tipple of delicious Santorini wine, which just happens to be wonderful - aren’t we lucky. We really will be treated like the rich and famous, and why not? This day is special!

Breakfast with lunch and wine included

Day 9 - Santorni Up for a walk? (Overnight Santorini)

It’s up to you today. Would you like to laze by the hotel pool reading a good book with the best views in Santorini or would you like some exercise with a stunning cliff walk to the next town?

If exercise is your thing, we will walk along the cliff face with stunning views of the caldera to the next town. The walk is around 2 hours and the path takes us along the coast line - stunning. At lunchtime the walkers will be rewarded with amazing views and enjoy lunch overlooking the sea.

For those who don’t want to walk: Relax in the morning and catch up with the walkers for lunch.

Breakfast included

Day 10 - Santorini Wine Tour and a discovery of Santorini (Overnight Heraklion, Crete, one night)

We make our way around the island discovering Santorini’s wine areas, points of interest and some great wineries. The Thira Archeological museum is absolutely fascinating and the exhibits date back to prehistoric times. We venture out to do a little wine tasting and learn about the ingenious way the island produces its grapes. As the winds on the island are very strong the vines are left to grow on the ground, the island doesn’t produce a lot of wine, but what it does is delicious. After a little tipple we visit Megalochori and have lunch under the vines at Raki, such a cute town to discover after lunch.

We catch a late afternoon ferry to the beautiful island of Crete.

Breakfast and dinner on the roof top of our hotel

Day 11 - Chania Crete (Overnight Chania, Crete)

A short drive (20 mins) to Knosses. This morning we discover the ancient city of Knosses with our guide. The palace was the capital of Minoan Crete and was inhabited for thousands of years beginning with Neolithic settlement and was abandoned in 1300 BC. Fascinating!

In the afternoon we arrive into Chania, a gorgeous Venetian port filled with tiny alleyways and small shops selling handicrafts, jewellery, handmade soaps etc.This small city is a delight and we are staying right in the historic centre at the best hotel. Our dinner tonight is in the one of the most authentic restaurants in Chania - delicious food.

Breakfast and Dinner, wine included

Day 12 - Chania Cretan Cooking (Overnight Chania, Crete)

After a leisurely breakfast, you might decide to discover Chania - an old Venetian port. You could spend hours discovering the lanes and back alleys here. You might even decide to take part in a traditional Haman (Turkish spa) which is a short walk from our hotel, leave your modesty at home though. Chania is truly such a lovely town.

This afternoon at 3.00pm we meet to take a short drive to a hillside village (this place really is like a wild west town) where we’ll discover much about Cretan cooking. Koula is an expert cook and author and you won’t believe the dishes we prepare in just one afternoon. The class takes place in an old mill, such a lovely setting. All dishes are made of genuine pure Cretan products and this will be informative as well as lots of fun. We enjoy dinner under the stars before venturing back to our lovely hotel.

Breakfast and your own handmade delicious dinner

Day 13 - Walking tour of Chania with Alki (Overnight Chania, Crete)

This morning, for those who would like to learn more about this amazing Venetian port town, we will have a short walking tour of the old city where we will see grand Turkish houses, winding alleys, the Jewish neighbourhood and many villas and palazzos. In the afternoon, at leisure you could take a boat tour from the harbour to see part of the island by boat.

This evening we meet for an aperitivo before venturing out to our last night in gorgeous Chania - how sad! We’ll sit under the stars yet again to taste another great Cretan meal and reminisce over our wonderful Greek adventure.
