This is a partially escorted tour with services of a tour manager and porterage in Olympia, Delphi and Kalambaka. These services are not provided in Athens and the Greek Islands. While on mainland Greece, the tour is moderately paced with three to four hours of walking every touring day. The time in Athens and the Greek Islands is an independent program and allows the flexibility to explore on your own. Affordable optional sightseeing excursions are available to enhance your independent time. Ferry service between the islands and to and from Athens can vary from three to six hours in length, time schedules dependent upon local weather and sea conditions. Flights may be available for pre-puchase. You will encounter some uneven surfaces, stairs, and significant slopes throughout Greece.

Greece: the birthplace of drama, philosophy, democracy, and a perfect vacation destination no matter what kind of getaway you're looking for. Swim in crystal clear waters and lounge under the sun in the Greek Islands, where windmills slowly turn over whitewashed villages. Wander through ancient wonders of the world in Athens, where the Parthenon still rises above the city as it has since the Golden Age. Take a deep dive into mythology as you explore the sites of Delphi and Olympia. Explore an otherworldly landscape of sheer cliffs topped with Byzantine monasteries in Meteora. If you just can't decide on a vacation, Greece is your answer. There's truly something special for everyone.
