Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Athens. On arrival in Athens, you’ll be met by your private driver and transferred to your hotel. After some time to settle in you’ll set off on a privately guided panoramic tour of the capital to get your bearings and see some of the city’s highlights.

  • Meet your guide in the hotel this morning for a private tour of the Acropolis, including the Parthenon, and the Plaka area of Athens.

  • You’ll leave Athens this morning with your private driver and travel to the Peloponnese. Cross the Corinth Canal before arriving in Epidavros where you’ll have a private tour of this archaeological site, including the acoustically perfect theatre. You’ll finish the tour at a local olive oil producer where you’ll tour the facilities and sample the oil it produces before journeying on to Nafplio.

  • Learn about the history of Nafplio today and gain a better understanding of the historical heart of the town on a privately guided walking tour.

  • Experience the coast of the Peloponnese from the water today on a private sailboat cruise. There’ll be time to swim, snorkel and relax on deck. The afternoon is free to explore more of Nafplio.

  • Your driver will meet you at the hotel this morning for a transfer to the ferry dock in Metochi from where you’ll sail across to the island of Hydra. You’ll have the afternoon to explore the shops and restaurants of the port area and see the little mules which transport all the goods on the island.

  • See the less-visited area of Hydra today on a hike to the Monastery of Agia Matrona with your private guide. This rustic trails offer a quiet escape and the views of the sea and town are remarkable.

  • You’ll return to Athens today by ferry for a final night in the city before departing. You’ll have a private transfer from the port to your hotel, and later spend your last evening learning how to prepare traditional Greek dishes with a cooking class and dinner at a local family home.

  • You’ll have a private transfer to the airport this morning for your flight home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
