With its boutique culture, gorgeous beaches and thumping nightlife, the chic isle of Mykonos invites you to embrace your hedonistic side
The sight of a Santorini sunset can turn even the most hardened of souls into a romantic. Walk along the volcanic rim of the island from Thira to Oia, passing through white villages that cling to plunging cliffs
We have had reports of travellers being pickpocketed on public transport in Athens. Please be careful with your valuables while travelling on the metro or the bus.
Summer temperatures in Greece can reach up to 40°C, which can be uncomfortable for those not used to the heat. On the other hand, early in the season (April) many businesses may still be closed and the weather is unpredictable, however you may have some of the major sights of the Greek islands almost to yourself. Please consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
Due to the current financial situation, banking services in Greece could potentially become limited at short notice. This includes credit card processing services and servicing of ATMs. When travelling through Greece, please ensure you have more than one means of payment with you (cash, debit cards, credit cards etc.). You'll also need to have sufficient Euros in cash to cover emergencies, unforeseen circumstances and any unexpected delays.
As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please ask your travel consultant for more details. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together.

TO ALL AT INTREPID TRAVEL, A heart-felt thank you to INTREPID TRAVEL for taking me to incredible places and on amazing adventures on my recent ten weeks to Mediterranean countries. Greatest gratitude to Natalie Scales-Melbourne Team Leader- Travel Consultant who organised 70 days of stress free travel with all seven flights, trips and all the other arrangements and the sound advice for the days not travelling with Intrepid tours going so smoothly to make my journey an unforgettable life time experience. My five Intrepid leaders in Europe were caring, efficient and organised and the single supplement accommodation was very comfortable with some great surprises like beautiful balcony views, tastefully decorated, roof top restaurants and locations. The Intrepid trips- Explore Spain and Portugal, Rome to Amalfi, Best of Italy, Dubrovnik to Athens and Athens to Santorini were all so different and I would recommend all of these to people who like small group travel, everyday being an adventure, active, going off the beaten track, being indulged int the culture of the people, meeting wonderful like-minded travellers and at this time of the year from July to September an endless summer. Feel free to share the comments of this email to those that should particularly appreciate my big thanks. I will definitely be travelling Intrepid again, a very happy customer! Kind Regards, Leanne Corrie

We loved this trip. Our group and our leader, Dina, were fab. The accommodation was basic - clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate, but not luxurious. The itinerary was well-balanced - not too intense, time allowed for free exploration. We had insights and experiences we would never have got travelling independently. And we had so much fun!
