Step back in time and marvel at the remnants of ancient history with 4 days of extensive exploring in Greece before hitting the Mediterranean for some fun in the sun. Athens, Olympia and Delphi will be uncovered through the wisdom of a Greek tour guide, and the islands of Greece will be discovered with 13-days drifting around the Cycladic islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Ios.
You'll be safe in the hands of your professional Trip Manager, who knows the streets of Greece better than you know the hairs on your toes. When it comes to transport, an experienced and legendary driver team will be taking the reins; trust us, they're always a hoot.
Enliven your taste buds with the fresh catch of the day, as well as traditional moreish favourites like moussaka and halloumi. We'll cover your breakfast every day, and will also treat you to 5 delicious dinners.
For 16 nights, you'll sleep twin or triple share in charming Greek hotels. If you prefer to sleep alone (or your snoring demands as much), upgrade to your own room for a teensy bit extra.
Room types: single, triple, triple share, twin, twin share
Rugged mountains, cypress trees and citrus groves will pepper our pretty tour from Athens to Corinth, where we will stop to get a look at a man-made canal that squeezes ships through its tight cliffs in what seems like an impossible feat.
What was once a military hotspot is now a jaw-dropping archaeological site amidst the mountain ranges of Greece. Our Trip Manager will uncover the 4,000 year history of Mycenae and Agamemnon’s Palace in a tale of heroics, myths and curses.
And so the historical uncoverings continue as we land in Olympia, the place where the Olympic Games were birthed, and what is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The sacred lands of Delphi will be ours this afternoon, again allowing us the chance to uncover world history right here in Greece. Despite being a place of monumental importance, it happens to have a cute little bar scene, and is a great place to sample the national drink of ouzo.
Well there you have it, the true scope of Greece's magnificence filed neatly into four incredible days. Walk away with a wealth of new knowledge and a new posse of friends, eager to get involved in yet another Contiki adventure.
Let's do this! 3 nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love.
Saddle up! We're taking to the seas again, this time in search of the island of Santorini. It's finally your turn to be the one lulling about the white-washed blue dome churches looking like a sultry summer babe. Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Ah, life. Overnight: Okeanis Beach Hotel
A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery. But thankfully, there will be no change in the hours spent ocean side and good times had. Overnight: Far Out Ios
One last dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together as the Greece loving squad that we are. Overnight: Poseidon Hotel
