This trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well-rounded experience of a country’s cuisine. While we endeavour to cater for specific dietary requirements, some meals and food activities are set in advance and may be difficult to adjust. If you have dietary requirements, simply contact your agent at the time of booking for further information on how this may impact on your ability to take part in included activities and meals. Come with an open mind and open mouth, and you won’t be disappointed!
Greek summers can get quite hot, so bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen if you're here during the warmer months.
While we start and finish our trip in Athens, there is no time for sight-seeing in this city once the trip has commenced. If you wish to explore Athens' wealth of historic sites, such as the Acropolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, we recommend that you extend your stay here either before or after your trip.

This trip was fantastic. Not only is the food great but we saw so much of Greece that other travelers don't get to see. The islands we visited , especially Hydra, I believe are some of the best islands in Greece. The ancient ruins we saw around Nafplio are amazing. Our tour guide, Sylvia, made our trip more knowledgeable, fun and saved us money by having that local knowledge. We highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for good food, great sights and to see the real Greece.
