Your Holiday

Your Destinations

Athens

Athens brought the world drama, history, poetry, and philosophy. Once home to the world’s most powerful and civilised empires, Athens is now the world’s foremost archaeological playground. The towering columns of the Parthenon still stand in homage to the virgin goddess Athena. Walking through the city is the best way to discover its history - Plaka is a particularly interesting area with a village feel, full of traditional Greek taverns and cafes, churches and smaller museums.

Mykonos

The island of Mykonos is renowned for its cosmopolitan nightlife, chic beachfront bars, and pretty villages showcasing typical Greek architecture.

Chora, the capital of the island, is a labyrinth of winding narrow streets, whitewashed houses framed by trailing bougainvillea and beautiful churches and squares. Its is easy to wander about in the quieter mornings, when traffic is forbidden, and you can take your time exploring the souvenir shops and tavernas.

The famous whitewashed windmills, the trademark of the island, stand on a hill overlooking the city, from where one can enjoy a magnificent view over Little Venice - home to numerous trendy cafes and bars.

Ephesus (Kusadasi)

Kusadasi is known for its classic architectural ruins and seafront promenade. Visitors can explore majestic cultural sites such as the Temple of Artemis, the House of Virgin Mary, the Basilica of St John and the Isa Bey Mosque, gaining a true feel of the rich Turkish history that is embedded in this town. During your visit, it is also worth visiting the Kusadasi Castle, overlooking the sea and the Kusadasi Ottoman Turkish Bath for a real authentic Turkish spa experience. Rub shoulders with the locals at the Old Town Bazaar Kaleici and pick some traditional hand-made Turkish souvenirs from the variety of shops and markets you will find.

Patmos

This bewitching island is known locally as 'The Holy Island' & it's not hard to see why: a fortress-like 11th-century monastery jutting up from a hill, the Cave of the Apocalypse & orthodox churches adorned with ancient frescos all contribute to this island's mythical qualities. 

Part of the beauty of Patmos lies in aimlessly roaming the streets and alleys of the labyrinthine, hilltop village of Hora where boutiques spill out onto cobbled streets.

Rhodes

The largest and sandiest of the Dodecanese, Rhodes is one of Greece's most loved islands, thanks to its numerous blue flag beaches, an abundance of ancient history and idyllic landscapes. The Old Town is awash with historic monuments, pretty cobbled streets and Byzantine churches. Further afield, traditional villages, olive groves and mountains beg to be explored.

Crete (Heraklion)

The largest of the Greek islands, Crete is an enchanting hub of dreamy villages, ancient treasures, sun-drenched beaches and divinely silky sea-waters - all wrapped up in the embrace of the locals’ warm hospitality. Crete is the birthplace of the Minoan people, said to be the first advanced society on European soil, who ruled over 4000 years ago. Here, you can find remains of this remarkable civilisation in various archeological sites dotted over the island, including the famous Palace of Knossos.

Santorini

A paradise destination famed for its breathtaking scenery, fascinating history and exquisite beaches; this stunning volcanic island simply cannot disappoint. Soak up some warm rays on any one of the red, white or black sandy beaches, and visit one of the island's incredible archaeological sites to see a 3,500-year-old Minoan town preserved in volcanic ash or the temples of Artemidoros and Dionysus. Sip on a refreshing beverage as you enjoy a panoramic view of the sun setting over Oia's blue-domed churches and into the deep Aegean sea beyond.

The Acropolis of Lindos

Your Included Excursions
The Acropolis is one of the most famous archaeological sites in Greece. It overlooks the city and offers spectacular views of the Aegean Sea. You will discover the Temple of Athena, ruins of an ancient theater as well as a sculpture of Pythocritos, which is attributed The Victory of Samothrace.

Ancient Ephesus Through the Ages - Hellinistic and Roman (Half Day - up to 4.5 hours)

Your Included Excursions
Your Ancient Ephesus bus tour is a journey through the golden ages which shaped a pivotal center of commerce and spirituality. Built 3,000 years ago, Ephesus shaped the history of Greek, Turkish and Christian civilizations from its privileged location, chosen (according to legend) by the oracle of Delphi. A site of pilgrimage, due to its proximity to the Temple of Artemis (one of the 7 Wonders of the World) and the presence of major Christian figures (the apostles Paul and John and the Virgin Mary) within the city walls, Ephesus is currently one of the largest Roman archaeological sites in the Mediterranean.

The splendour of its golden age is visible throughout its streets and exceptionally well-preserved ruins. As you explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site you will have the opportunity to breathe in the centuries of cultural effervescence, visible in the Ephesus Agora, Odeon, the Houses of the Patricians, the beautiful Temple of Hadrian and the astonishing Library of Celsus. You will also have the opportunity to bargain and shop local merchandise such as carpets, leather goods, souvenirs etc.
