So, you’ve had your eye on a Greece holiday for some time now? I am excited to announce that I will be hosting a trip to Greece from  June 2022, 22nd to the 28th.  Greece is an incredibly beautiful country in the Mediterranean. Known as the cradle of western civilization and the birthplace of the Olympic Games. It is surrounded by azure waters and the most beautiful Islands, making it the perfect vacation destination for those who dream of cultural charm and island getaways. From my previous traveling experiences, I know the importance of exploring different destinations with locals. Through my contacts and friends from Greece, I have curated an authentic experience ensuring that you create memories to last.

JOURNEY OVERVIEW

Welcome to Greece! Our trip commences on June 22nd, 2022. You will arrive in Athens where you will be picked up at the airport by a private car and driven to our hotel in the heart of Athens where we are waiting to receive you. We will be staying at one of Athens’ 4-star hotels right in the heart of its shopping district. After checking into your hotel you will refresh, relax and meet up with the rest of the travellers or do some exploring of your own. In the evening, we will all gather for sundowners at a rooftop bar and restaurant followed by a dinner where we can connect and get to know each other.

Bring your sneakers and after a hearty breakfast at the hotel, let’s explore Athens, This tour is designed to give a true insight into the wonder and extraordinary sites of Athens. Some of the highlights include the Acropolis & the Parthenon, the Statue of the Unknown Soldier and the Panathenaic Stadium. This will be followed by a leisurely lunch and an afternoon of rest or even shopping.

In the late afternoon, we will be accompanied by a local photographer for a sunset photo tour of the most picturesque and hidden spots around Athens. Where you can choose to either be in front or behind the camera for some unforgettable instagrammable moments. Later in the night, we will enjoy a traditional home-cooked Greek dinner with a local family at their home for that authentic, traditional Mediterranean culinary experience!

After breakfast, we will depart to the port of Piraeus and catch a speed ferry to Mykonos. We will check into our 4-star boutique hotel located near the cosmopolitan beach of Platys Gialos. Mykonos is popularly known for its beaches and summer party atmosphere. This will be a leisure afternoon to either explore the nearby beaches or relax in the hotel.
