Watch magical experiences unfold with this 8 day Greece tour to Mykonos, Athens and Santorini.

Politics and myths of the ancient world, architecture, Mediterranean cuisine, warm weather and beautiful beaches all make for a life-changing vacation.

What better way to escape the ordinary than to take a trip to the birthplace of Western Civilization?

This 8-day experience will put you in the Grecian spirit as you explore the following Greek Islands:

 

Mykonos

Island of the Winds is a moniker given to the enchantingly beautiful Mykonos whose cube-shaped white houses are bathed in the turquoise waters with every wave of the sea.

According to legend, Mykonos was the battleground where Zeus fought the Titans and is believed to have formed from bodies of giants killed by Hercules.

Take a stroll on the narrow cobblestone streets of Chora and watch soul-stirring sunsets from Little Venice.

Mykonos has 300 days of sunshine every year and acts as a party hotspot both night and day for revelers from all over the world.

 

Athens

Athens is known for majestic museums and staggeringly beautiful architecture that showcases life in Neolithic, Byzantine, Roman and classical eras.

Featuring the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Agora, Theatre of Dionysos, Acropolis and Hadrian’s Arch, Athens is truly a sight to behold.

Shopping districts, nightclubs, art galleries and dance theatres make it an unforgettable cultural mecca.

Santorini

This volcanic island is known for its white eggplant, breathtaking sunsets, and its colorful beaches.

Though you may find white and red beaches in Santorini, the black volcanic sand beach is the most awe-inspiring coastline you could ever encounter.

From Santorini, you can try out water activities like snorkeling, windsurfing, water skiing or explore the villages, cave houses, vineyards, and hot springs.
