Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Meet your private driver at the airport for a transfer to your hotel in Athens. In the evening, visit a local home and enjoy dinner and conversation with a native Athenian.

  • You’ll meet your private guide this morning for a tour of the Acropolis, seeing one of the top sights in Greece and delving further into its history at the modern Acropolis Museum.

  • You’ll travel by ferry to the island of Hydra in the Saronic Gulf for a day trip. There will be free time to explore the cobbled lanes and the restaurants and shops of this port town.

  • You’ll have a transfer to the port this morning where you’ll board the ferry for Milos. On arrival, you’ll be met by a representative and taken to your hotel. You have the remainder of the afternoon to relax and begin to explore Milos.

  • See the island today on a private tour of the highlights of Milos, visiting some of the smaller towns, ancient catacombs, the spot where the Venus de Milo was discovered, and finally unwinding with free time on the bleached white rocks and beach of Sarakiniko.

  • Explore a different side of Milos today on a privately guided geological island tour. You’ll see volcanic fields, beaches lined with red and white rocks, and the ghost town of an abandoned sulfur mine right on the ocean. You’ll have the afternoon free.

  • Your driver will take you to the port this morning where you’ll travel by ferry south to Santorini. You’ll be met there by your driver and delivered to your hotel where you have the afternoon at leisure.

  • See a more traditional side to Santorini today on a privately guided tour of some of the small interior towns, and visit a local resident on his farm for lunch.

  • You’ll have the morning free today to explore the towns of the caldera or relax by the pool. In the afternoon you’ll be transferred to a smaller port where you’ll enjoy a small group catamaran cruise around Santorini. You’ll have time to swim and experience the sunset over the water from your boat.

  • Take the ferry to Mykonos this morning — you’ll have private transfers to the port in Santorini and on to your hotel. In the evening, you’ll learn about traditional Mykonian cooking from native resident Teta in a lively cooking class held in her home.

  • Venture off the island of Mykonos today on a privately guided excursion to the island of Delos. There, you’ll tour the archaeological site, which was a hub of commerce and culture for the whole of the Mediterranean in ancient times. You’ll have the afternoon free.

  • A private transfer will take you to the airport today for your departing flight.
