The Lesser-Known Side of Greece

Greece is more than we were taught in school, or than we have seen in photos. Exceeding all glossy picture-postcard expectations, Greece’s islands are splendidly breathtaking, with a rich variety of landscapes, cultures, villages, and colors. And beyond the islands, Mainland Greece is overflowing with natural wonders, ancient sites and archaeological marvels.

While the islands are a great destination for the summertime, mainland Greece can be visited all year-round. With Labour Day behind us, let us help you plan a trip to Greece this Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer!

Below we are featuring two trips to Greece – one is a city hopping tour of mainland Greece, and the other is a luxury island hopping tour of Greece’s lesser known islands. These two itineraries can even be combined for a great mix of deep history and culture, along with some rest and relaxation. Remember, this is just a sample – We have the tools to compose a wide range of experiences customized just for you!
