Tour Overview

This special Greek Islands Tour is specifically designed to meet the needs and fulfill the desires of family travellers and for an adventure-packed two weeks, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of this magical destination of mythological proportion with those closest to you. The ever-exciting capital, Athens, is the first city on our to-see list and it serves as the perfect introduction to the past and present faces of Greece. Traveling by ferry to the island of Naxos, we investigate the labyrinthine streets that were designed to confuse plundering pirates of the 18th and 19th centuries and enjoy a full-day tour of this lush and mountainous island along with its beautiful beaches. In Santorini, we visit a city frozen in time, Akrotiri, walking its ancient streets and then traveling by donkey up to the dramatic cliff-top location of Ancient Thira. Our trip to Crete of course includes a tour of the famous labyrinth of Knossos, the home of the mythological Minotaur of Theseus lore.
