Experience the very best of Greece, including the historic sights of Athens, the blue-roofed buildings of Santorini, the narrow stone streets of Mykonos, and the quiet nature of Andros. This 10 day experience is ideal for the first-time traveler to Greece with history, food, nature, beach and luxurious boutique accommodations.
Begin in bustling Athens to visit the Acropolis and gain a deeper understanding of Greek history and mythology. Unwind after a short flight to the breaktaking island of Santorini, where you can hike from the seaside towns of Fira to Oia, taste beer at a local brewery, watch movies under the stars, sea kayak at sunset and taste Greek wine. After a short ferry ride to Mykonos, experience a small-group yacht sailing trip to Rhenia Island with a guided tour of Delos, as well as a bicycle ride, lunch and wine tasting at an organic farm. Your final stop will be off the typical tourist track to the island of Andros for some nature-heavy R&R on beautiful beaches. It quite possibly could be the perfect summer vacation. Oh, and did we mention you get to eat Greek food the entire time?
