Highlights of Greece
Step back in time in Athens
Visible from nearly everywhere in the city, the iconic Acropolis and Parthenon serve as a constant reminder of Athens’ impressive past. With buzzing rooftop bars, cheap delicious food and colourful street art, this gritty-yet-intriguing capital city is so much more than just a gateway to the Greek islands.
Drop anchor in Oia
There’s a reason why most stock photos of Greece feature Oia. Located on the northern tip of Santorini, this picturesque coastal town is famous for its water-filled caldera and the white and blue cube houses carved into the steep cliffs that surround it. Soak up the sun on volcanic-sand beaches and then find a spot on the caldera to take in the island’s legendary sunset.
Rub shoulders with party-goers in Mykonos
Once just a playground for the wealthy and glamourous, today Mykonos draws a diverse crowd in search of thumping beaches with a party atmosphere. While the island has certainly earned its Ibiza-of-Greece reputation, Mykonos has plenty to offer those after calmer pursuits. Explore chic boutiques that line the maze of cobbled streets, sip seaside cocktails in Little Venice or brush up on your mythology in Delos.
Excursions and experiences
We believe the best moments on the road are those where you get to mingle with the locals, learn a little about the culture and history of each destination and make discoveries you won't find in any guide book. We call these real life experiences, the kind you can only get with a local leader showing you the way. Here are just a few of the experiences you'll share in Croatia.
- Sail to Sounion for a sunset dinner under the Temple of Poseidon. Towering 65 metres (213 feet) above the Aegean Sea, its gleaming white columns have inspired many who came before, including poet Lord Byron
- Visit the Monastery of Hozoviotissa in Amorgos and debate which is better – the view of the monastery precariously built into the face of a cliff or the view of the Aegean Sea from the monastery balcony.
- Explore the UNESCO-listed island of Delos with the help of local guides and get to know the mythological birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis.
Meet our fleet
