Ancient ruins, stunning scenery, lots of sunshine, the Greek Islands, the crystal-clear Aegean Sea, and tasty cuisine…on this Greece tour, you’ll experience all of this and more!

History comes alive on your guided sightseeing tour in Athens: see the main sights of this fascinating city and visit the amazing Acropolis, dating back to the 5th century BC, and perched high on a rocky outcrop overlooking the city. But that's not all...you’ll enjoy time on the Greek Islands with three nights each in Mykonos and Santorini, and travel by high-speed ferries and by air. Mykonos, Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island, has a beautiful seafront village, sandy beaches, iconic windmills, and whitewashed houses. Here, you'll visit the Church of Agia Kiriaki, renowned for its beautiful icons, and have plenty of time to relax on the beach, walk through the network of narrow streets, sample local specialties, and take optional excursions. In Santorini, still an active volcano, stroll along the cobblestone streets, enjoy sun-soaked beaches, taste the local wines, and enjoy the stunning views.

Globus has also included some unique experiences to give you a true sense of Greek life. In Mykonos, taste a traditional Mykonian dessert, and in Santorini, taste traditional Ouzo, Greece’s most popular drink.
