Perhaps more than any other hotel in the history of Adventures Abroad, the Aegialis Hotel, on the island of Amorgos in Greece’s Cycladic Islands, is our unofficial ‘home-away-from-home.’ This hotel, and the island itself, was “discovered” by one of our first Tour Leaders in 1988, when he found himself “stranded” on Amorgos by a weather-related ferry cancellation.
You really can’t go wrong visiting almost any island in Greece, but on the island of Amorgos you’ll find a gem of a hotel in the Aegialis Hotel.
This list represents just a few of our tour leader assignments for trips set to depart in the next few months. The leaders below and others not listed will, of course, be leading other regularly-scheduled tours throughout 2016 and beyond.
