The Greeks appreciate people who lay the cards on the table, are authentic and show interest in the places they visit. "

  • : "I love how guests react to hearing the Zorba the Greek song. It’s amazing that one old song can still unite and spread so much enthusiasm."

  • : "In Greece, we still break plates when we are excited, happy, dancing, celebrating our namedays or birthdays, get married or divorced!"

  • Athens: Get to know your fellow travelers over a delightful Welcome Dinner at a local restaurant.

  • Santorini: What better way to start your island adventure than to sip on a cocktail as you take in one of the world's most beautiful sunsets.

  • Mykonos: Learn about traditional Mykonian cuisine as you taste some of the local delicacies.

The number is our group was small which meant we got to know each other. Our tour guide, Laura Spiers, was excellent as was our driver. The food was good, and of course everything we saw in Iceland was beautiful and educational.
