Much like a fine baklava, modern day Greece is layered with history so rich and complex that the only way to do it justice is to see it for yourself. Explore the country with a local leader and learn how the spectacular hanging monasteries of Meteora protected modern Hellenic culture from invading Turks, then trace a path through tumble-down ruins in Delphi. Visit the site of the world’s first Olympics, stop in at pretty seaside villages in Nafplion, and discover the secrets behind Greek honey and ouzo, all on this whirlwind adventure.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Pickpocketing can be an issue in Athens, especially on public transport. If you keep your valuables concealed and secure while travelling on the metro or bus, you should have no problems.
  • Summer temperatures in Greece can reach up to 40°C, so you will need to be able to cope with the heat if you're visiting during the warmer months. Please consider the time of year and your suitability to visiting during that season.

Have spent 8 days with a terrific bunch of people including our tour leader. The local guides imparted us with much knowledge and enthusiasm. The restaurants recommended by our tour leader provided us with amazing food. The accommodation and van we travelled in was very comfortable. I will miss Greece for this and the memorable experiences.

Ross demonstrated excellent knowledge, organisational skills, enthusiasm, physicality and was an absolute joy to travel with. I have done six Intrepid trips and if I could be assured of Ross as a leader I would book more
