Tour Overview

(Previously called: Greek Island Hopper)TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader.When we say 'Greek Island holiday', you say... Endless beaches? Ridiculously blue waters? Perpetual sunshine? Well, yeah, all those things are great. Obviously. But our Greek Island Hopper trip covers all the givens... and more. MORE ancient wonders. MORE eye candy sunsets. MORE fisherman-chic goodness. MORE G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S. Plate smashing. Greek dancing. Schmoozing with the locals. And with us, you won't just see it. You'll do it. One 'opa!' at a time.

Itinerary

Expand All

icon Day 1: Athens, Greece

Meals Included:

  Dinner


Helloooo, Athens! Cue epic adventures, crystal-clear water and more gyros than your fat pants can handle. Think: 4am kebab – but better. Gather ‘round Spartans! Tonight we'll meet the gang and dine Greek style: brace yourself for a legendary included group dinner at a local eatery.

icon Day 2: Athens

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Tick off your ancient must-dos today on a stroll with your local Trip Leader. See the likes of Monastiraki Square, the ruins of the library of Hadrian, Filopappou Hill (for spectacular views over Athens and the Acropolis) and Syntagma Square for the changing of the guards. Then: delve deeper into these archeological sites with an afternoon of free time – the mighty Acropolis is waiting. Ready to dial up your ancient history quota? Jump on an optional afternoon trip to Cape Sounion and Attica. Or spend your free time hunting down the best Greek donut shop in Athens. And this evening? It’s all yours. We rec finding local haunt for some seriously good saganaki – it’s cheese, it’s fried, it’s goddam delicious.

icon Day 3: Athens to Mykonos

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


We’re not going to lie, this morning’s an early one – but it’s going to be oh-so-worth it! If Athens invented democracy, Mykonos pioneered the beach party that followed. As a group, we’ll hit up the windmills in Little Venice for THAT photo, check out the white-washed shop fronts of Old Town and make a mental note of all the beachfront cocktail bars to check out later. Then: the rest is up to you! Ever heard of Paradise Beach? It’s where Europe goes to party. ‘Nough said.

icon Day 4: Mykonos

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Sore head this morning? DW we’ve got the cure – a free day lazing on Mykonos’ soft sandy beaches. If you’re up for it, why not venture to Delos Island to check out the birthplace of the sun god Apollo on an optional archaeological tour. Or lace up those Nikes for an included hike around Paradise Beach. It’s 100% up to you. Looking for some local inspo? Your Trip Leader’s more clued-up than the Cluedo World Champion ‘96. Make the most of it!

icon Day 5: Mykonos to Paros

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Say goodbye to Mykonos – we’re heading to Paros this morning. Expect: more white-and-blue coloured paradise. Get your bearings around Parikia (aka Paros’ capital) before cutting loose to do whatever you want. Get your architecture fix at the Church of 100 Doors. Explore the cobblestone streets in Naoussa. Or grab some chill time at Kolimbithres Beach. And tonight? We’re dining like the locals with an included group meal, so get ready to share your top Greek legends/arty AF shell pics (we know you’ve got them).

icon Day 6: Paros

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Oh, what’s that? Free time to do your own thing? We thought so. Chill at the beach with your trip mates. Settle in at a local restaurant. Or jump on the bus to Lefkes for some sick views. Want to explore a little deeper? There’s a full day trip to Naoussa, Kolymbithres beach and the church of Ekatontapiliani on offer too. Get out there!

icon Day 7: Paros to Santorini

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Jump back on the ferry: the blue-domed cliffside houses of your Insta feed await in Santorini – #nofilter necessary. Get the tour of Fira with your in-the-know Trip Leader (the side of the island with the best views). Then: it’s time to make your friends back home jealous AF with THAT sunset pic. Lucky for you, we’re no rookies when it comes to picking the best spot. So settle in, this is going to be one to remember.

icon Day 8: Santorini

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


On today’s agenda? OPTIONS. Get your fill of blue-domed churches, rustic windmills and whitewashed houses with an adventure around the island. Or sign up for a full-day volcano excursion, starting with a sail in a traditional caldera before getting your hike on – volcano style. And just in case your iPhone gallery wasn’t filled last night, there’s an additional Oia sunset tour on the cards too. Best day ever? We’re not surprised.

icon Day 9: Santorini to Athens

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Dinner


Whip out your camera and snap one last pic – it’s your last morning in Santorini. Disclaimer: we’ve got a lengthy ferry ride back to Athens. But sometimes it’s about the journey, right? And with a fully-charged phone, upgraded seats and your trip mates by your side – we’ll be back in Athens before you know it! Then: ready for your final dinner with the gang? Local eats: you bet. Mamma Mia-style dancing and singing: optional, but encouraged. Let’s make it count.

icon Day 10: Athens

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


After breakfast, it’s time to say goodbye. Try not to get too emotional – you could be an ugly crier. So, where to next?

Trip was almost perfect only issue was the weather kept us from taking the ferry to Paros, which was devastating as I was looking forward to Paros.

I think maybe a flight could have been a better option for transport to pros, however understand it would add to the feed also less....

El tour es muy bueno, incluye los principales destinos para conocer, con todas las facilidades para poder visitarlos de forma agradable.

La selección de hoteles esta bien.

María, la tour leader de mi grupo, hizo un buen trabajo, siempre estuvo al pendiente de todos, lo único que le falto fue darnos el recorrido por el centro de Fira.

Lo que no me gustó fue la actitud y prepotencia del chofer que nos llevó al hotel en Mykonos: nos hablo mal diciéndonos que no ocupáramos los asientos de enfrente de la camioneta porque estaban reservados para las personas que bajaban antes, lo dijo de mala manera, levantando la voz y de forma despectiva; al final fuimos nosotros quienes bajamos antes.

La atención del personal del hotel de Atenas y Pharos fue regular; el servicio del hotel de Santorini y Mykonos fue buena.

The optional extras were great, I highly recommend doing them all.

We didn’t have much time to do the Acropolis but do recommend getting in.

Athens- Hotel was nice and great service.

Mykonos- the hotel was beautiful but not that close to the town.

Location of Paros was great- right in the town.

Santorini was a 20min walk from Fira and not a very nice hotel.

    What’s your vax status?

    I’m fully vaccinated (or soon will be): if you’ll be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks before your trip begins, you’re good to go! You’ll just need to show proof of this to your Trip Leader on the day your trip departs. Please bring an electronic and/or printed copy of your vaccination status showing your full name (the one on your passport, obvs) and the date your last required dose of the vaccine was given – which must be at least 14 days before departure.
    I’m medically exempt: if you’re unable to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons, you’ll need to provide us with a few things before your trip begins. This will include a copy of an official government exemption, or a letter from your doctor, emailed to us at least 14 days before your trip departs. You’ll also need to take a PCR test three days before your trip and email us the result. If we do not receive these within the given time – or your PCR test result is positive – you will not be able to travel with us. Please also bring electronic and/or printed copies of your medical exemption and negative PCR test result with you on your trip.
    I’ve not been vaccinated: if you’ve not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and you’re not exempt from having the vaccine for medical reasons, unfortunately you won’t be able to travel with us. We’re super serious about the safety of our Topdeckers and the communities we visit. For that reason, you must be fully vaccinated to join us – unless you are medically exempt.
