Now with shortened ferry rides, our magical Greek Island Hopping tour allows for even more time for us to immerse ourselves into a world of Hellenic legacies, captivating contemporary cultures and thrilling atmospheres. From the unrivalled wealth of historical treasures in National Archaeological Museum and the majestic splendour of the Acropolis in Athens, to the labyrinthine streets lined with whitewashed buildings and beautiful golden-sand beaches in Mykonos, we enjoy a range of spectacle and experience that only the Greece can claim. In Santorini, known as 'Pre-Historic Pompeii' for its unique geographical form, we find the jewel in the Grecian crown, an island whose natural beauty truly sets it apart. We trace history back to the Cycladic civilisation with visits to museums brimming with marble figurines, ancient tools and centuries-old relics, and have the chance to undertake a donkey-ride or an optional hike through the legendary Grecian countryside.

I have been travelling the world for over 20 years and I have to say that our AA tour leader was one of the best tour leaders I have encountered. We had some difficulties with the ferry strike, the metro strike and the air traffic controller strike, but she handled all of it with grace. I know she must have been terribly upset, but she did not show it - a sign of a truly great leader.

The excursions were excellent this was our third time to Greece and have enjoyed it all. Wouldn't change a thing. Excellent all of the local guides are very knowledgeable. Excellent transportation as always. Excellent cross section of foods, loved it all. We had an absolute all round fantastic, patient, knowledgeable tour leader. She was helpful and caring with everyone she comes in contact with. A real gem. Adventures Abroad have always been the best way to travel with as they only have small groups and all the staff, tour leaders are really great to deal with. We keep travelling with them, wouldn't do it any other way.

Loved the extra small group setting - made the trip very intimate. Accommodations were good - food was fabulous. I think she has a good knowledge of Greek current affairs as well as history and the areas we visited. If Erin couldn t answer a question, she found the answer! And she took notes to continue to improve her knowledge.

Seasonality and Weather
This tour is offered in spring, summer, and fall, the most popular being spring and fall when temperatures are milder, crowds thinner, and airfares lower. Spring is popular for green landscapes and wildflowers; beachgoers prefer fall sea temperatures. The region has a Mediterranean climate with early springs, long hot and dry summers, and autumns that are bright and warm into mid-October. Showers are possible in spring, rare in summer, and possible in late fall.
Transport and Travel Conditions
Local ferries between mainland / islands can range from hydrofoils to large vehicular vessels--all bookings in economy class. Greek ferry schedules tend to change without notice; some itinerary adjustments may be necessary at the discretion of your Tour Leader. Uncontrollable factors such as weather may result in delays. Land transport (city & island tours, port transfers) by private air-conditioned motor coach, 24-36 seats depending on group size (see 'group size'); some local buses and taxis. Several walking tours on uneven surfaces.
Well-located, air- conditioned, mid-range hotels (3-4 star) throughout. Island hotels are smaller properties (3-4 story) that will likely not have elevators. All hotels have en suite bath, though most have shower only. A special note about Santorini, which is primarily a luxury tourism destination and, while we can confidently promise our visit will be fulfilling and rewarding, one's hotel expectations must be in line with our overall purpose, which is sightseeing and cultural experience and not focused on the "hotel experience" per se.
Porter service is rarely available on the islands (see 'inclusions'); you MUST be independent with your luggage, especially getting on / off ferries. Single rooms are limited and likely smaller than twins.
Staff and Support
Tour Leader throughout, driver (s), local step-on local guides in various locales.
