Secluded beaches, ancient ruins, local flavors and spectacular sunsets – this nine-day Adventure Cruise offers a hearty dose of Greek island life with a splash of Turkish delights. Tick off the idyllic Santorini and Mykonos and stray from the pack to the lesser-visited Cyclades, sail through sparkling waters on a small ship and soak up the salty sea breezes as you explore charming hill villages and hidden coves. Visit ancient archaeological sites and spend time learning about Delos, the ruins of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis. Add a healthy helping of delicious Greek cuisine and the endless opportunities to swim and snorkel off the back of your boat, and you’ve got yourself and unforgettable overwater odyssey through the Aegean Sea.
The brilliant blue of the Mediterranean, idyllic Greek islands, spectacular ancient sites, and jaw-dropping scenery; this trip to Greece has it all. This is the Greece you have dreamed about and this is the perfect trip to experience it. After a good look at Athens’ Acropolis and a wander through the bustling Plaka market, we set off island hopping. We’ll be spending three days on Crete to enjoy its 5,000 years of history and soft sand beaches. From here we’ll take a ferry to Santorini, the island that epitomizes the Greek experience with its sugar-cube houses pasted on the high clifftops of Fira’s crater, washed by the cobalt-blue of the Aegean sea.

Explore both the culture and the natural beauty of the Greek islands by foot. We will hike along ancient footpaths, sample Greek delicacies at local taverns, sit back to watch the street life, and swim in the azure seas. On this Adventures in Good Company we will visit the best spots as well as journey to the interior of the islands where we can experience firsthand the culture and habits of the islanders.
Visit the birthplace of goddesses (and gods too), whitewashed villages hanging on volcanic cliffsides, world famous beaches, seaside tavernas with views of breathtaking sunsets, and archaeological sites galore! Athens Santorini Mykonos Crete with WanderWomen Tours
All Greek Island trips begin and end on Leros island, in the middle of Dodecanese islands. There is no set length of trip, but I recommend no less than 7 days and no more than 10. I do not run trips less than 5 days in length. Everyday waken to sunshine, a dip in the sea, and a leisurely breakfast on board or ashore. 4 passengers, double occupancy, but we can accommodate up to 5.
Encounter history where it was made while enjoying the paradise surroundings of the Aegean Sea. Tour the Acropolis, the Agora and the ancient temples of Athens. Then, sail on a private yacht and walk on the volcano of the mythical Atlantis, as you enjoy the black sand, the azure seas and the spectacular sunsets of Santorini. From your base at a luxury resort, discover the Minoan civilizations, the beaches, foods and wines of Crete. This tour can be extended by one day for an optional tour of Crete's Most Beautiful Beaches
