The trip.me way of travel
Greece tours will inevitably start and finish in its historic capital, Athens. Here you can marvel, from any angle, at the incredible Acropolis, which is, along with the pyramids in Egypt, arguably one of the most important ancient sites in the world. Crowned by the Parthenon, the Acropolis overlooks the entire city and looks especially magnificent when illuminated at night.
Athens is under a continual revamp where new, stylish shops and restaurants keep emerging and a progression in a thriving art scene manifests the direction that the Greek capital is heading.
Along with immersing in the fascinating history of Athens, cooking courses are a popular option and a chance to learn how to make one of the finest cuisines in the world.
For sun-seekers, beach-lovers and adventurers, island hopping in Greece allows you to indulge in the fine things in life, Greece’s beautiful food, the soaring cliffs overlooking sparkling oceans, incredible year-round weather and great water-sports and activities.
Santorini is the most spectacular of the Greek islands, with its layered white-washed facade overlooking an overwhelmingly seductive Aegean ocean. Other popular island destinations are Crete, Mykonos, Corfu and Rhodes.
Another mesmerizing site that can’t be missed on your Greece tours are the remarkably spectacular monasteries of Meteora, perched up high on top of 6 natural sandstone rock pillars. The monasteries were used as a safe haven for monks during the 14th century bloodshed and are now one of Greece’s most aesthetic sites, reached by a network of attractive steps, hewn into the side of the rocks.
Hikers and trekkers will be elated to know that on the Greek island of Crete the Samaria Gorge awaits for some splendid trekking. The ‘White Mountains’ National park centers around the gorge, and at 1,200 meters it offers breath-taking views. It is also the longest gorge in Europe.
Food, Religious practices, and traditions are all an integral part of the culture in Greece. Contemporary Greek culture relies heavily on Greece’s location, lying where east meets west and therefore reflecting and merging both. The country’s turbulent history is also a fundamental factor in understanding the Greek philosophy.
Having evolved over thousands of years, Greece contains arguably the most significant history and philosophy in Europe and is essential to understanding the rich modern culture that it has evolved in to.
Greece’s diverse cuisine is world-famous and relies heavily on a wide variation of fresh foods. It reflects the Mediterranean diet and makes use of a rich amount of olive oil, salads mixed with sumptuous fresh yogurt and scooped up with soft, fresh bread, and of course the ubiquitous olives and feta cheese.
Dips are used widely and are also an enviable group of Greek recipes, in particular, the mouth-watering Tzatziki (yogurt, cucumber, and garlic) and taramosalata (cod roe, olive oil and lemon juice).
Having many coasts and islands, fish is another dish served incredibly well in Greece and, although not so popular, meats in Greece are cooked to perfection and easily accessible.
The best time of the year to visit Greece would be the periods just before and just after summer.
Mid-April to Mid-June you will see the beautiful spring weather just heading into summer but also avoid those intense summer months of mid-June to September.
The worst times to visit would be the scorching month of August and also the wet winter months from November-February.
Very accessible throughout the trip. There to answer questions, plan additional excursions and put your mind at ease when concerns arose.
Antonis is very personable and truly cares that you have an enjoyable experience. He met us in person in Athens and delivered all our tickets and vouchers we would need along our way. When I had a question he was readily available.
Antonis was very responsive from start to finish. He happily adjusted the itinerary multiple times for me until I had exactly the trip I wanted. He met us the first night at the hotel with everything we needed for the entire trip (plane tickets, ferry tickets, arranged tour tickets and information). He also gave me and each of my two children (25yr and 22yr) a welcome gift bag filled with yummy Greek specialties. He arranged private transfers for us and everything went smoothly without a hitch from start to finish. The hotels and their locations were awesome and we would not change a thing about our trip. My kids and I all agree that this was the best and most stress free trip we have been on thanks to Antonis. I would highly recommend Antonis to any of my friends or family planning a trip to Greece. If I ever go back, I would only use Antonis to help plan it.Read More Read More Less
