Itinerary

Day 1 - Athens Welcome to Greece

Athens, a fascinating city filled to the brim with living history and modern excitement. Get ready for a heady few days here. We meet tonight for an ‘aperitivo’ before our Big Fat Greek adventure. We’ll venture out to the Plaka area, this place is so atmospheric - the quintessential Greek scene - and we’ll be indulging in our first authentic Greek meal under the stars with an amazing view of the Acropolis.


We are specialists in Women's Tours to Greece and Italy

Dinner and wine included

Day 2 - Athens Ancient Athens Walking Tour

Ancient Athens Tour. This morning we discover ancient Athens, leaving our hotel to see up close that which is visible all over the city of Athens - the Acropolis. We’ll journey back in time before Christ to when it was first constructed and learn of the turbulent history of the Athenians, the tribe of Athens. We visit the new amazing Acropolis museum with our wonderful guide, Nick. We'll experience the ancient Agora, the market place of Athens, and the Plaka, the atmospheric centre of Athens. In the afternoon, what about shopping in the flea market? (and no there aren’t fleas).
Breakfast

Day 3 - Athens Food and Wine Tour

A Walking Food Tour of Athens: Don’t have your fill at breakfast as today we will discover a myriad of Greek delicacies, those delicious syrupy sweets, loukoumades, (yum) to the savoury pastourma along with feta cheese and tasty Greek olives. Our guide is a food expert and we’ll discover aromatic spice shops, colourful delicatessens, dairies and sweet shops. We’ll also visit the bustling central Varvakeios food market - extremely loud, but exciting. Not quite sure whether we will have room for lunch after this walking tour as we will have our fill of tastings. Free afternoon for your own discovery; relax by the hotel pool, or the many other museums and galleries.
Breakfast included

Day 4 - Mykonos Flight to Mykonos

We leave this morning for the exciting island of Mykonos, known as the party island. Who needs that, we’re bringing our own party! Our flight is just 30 minutes and we’ll arrive at lunchtime. Our hotel is just a short walk to the lovely town of Chora where we will probably spend the afternoon. Some might choose to go to the beach for lunch (there are lovely tavernas on the beach where you can claim your own lounge chair and be served right there - how decadent!). Maybe spend a few hours relaxing here (or just sit by the hotel pool) before we venture into town for dinner in the gorgeous seaside village of Chora.
Breakfast included

Day 5 - Discover Chora, Mykonos town

This morning let’s take it slow. Have a late breakfast, go for a walk and take in the surroundings of the hotel area. After lunch we'll venture into town to spend the afternoon strolling through this stunning village. The houses are whitewashed and the colours of the bougainvillae are brilliant. The town has some wonderful opportunities for shopping and some perfect spots for that afternoon aperitivo with amazing views across Little Venice.
Breakfast included

Day 6 - Mykonos A Scenic Mykonos Tour

Today we take a boat to Delos Island, one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece. For those who’ve been to Pompei, the comparison is quite stark. This was a holy sanctuary before Olympian Greek mythology made it the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Sound familiar from that Greek mythology you learnt in school? We need to rest and revive ourselves after this (although some might still want more time shopping in the exclusive shops in Chora).
Breakfast and lunch/dinner, with wine included

Day 7 - Santorini

We say goodbye to the lovely island of Mykonos this morning and we make our way, by ferry, to the stunning island of Santorini, where the beautiful people holiday. We are staying in the best spot on the entire island on the edge of caldera where people travel from all over the world to photograph this most amazing sunset - it’s legendary. While we take our walk into the town we can view the stunning views across the caldera.
Breakfast included

Day 8 - Santorini Sailing the caldera on our own yacht

Today we sail the caldera on our own private yacht and it’s gorgeous! We are picked up from the hotel to travel to Amoudi Bay where we will board our stunning luxury yacht. Here we will cruise the amazingly beautiful caldera with stops at the Black Beach, White Beach and Red Beach and some mineral springs swimming spots. The captain and his mate will pamper us with a delicious lunch and a little tipple of Santorini wine, which just happens to be wonderful - aren’t we lucky. We really will be treated like the rich and famous, and why not?
Breakfast with lunch and wine included

Day 9 - Walking along the caldera of Santorini

It’s up to you today. Would you like to laze by the hotel pool reading a good book with the best views in Santorini or would you like some exercise with a stunning cliff walk to the next town?
If exercise is your thing, we will walk from Thira to Oia. The walk is around 3 - 3.5 hours and the path takes us along the coast line - stunning. We will pass through some other lovely hill top towns before reaching Oia where we should be just in time for lunch at a hill top restaurant.
For those who don’t want to walk: Relax in the morning and catch up with the walkers later.
Breakfast included

Day 10 - Santorini Wine Tour and a discovery of Santorini overnight Heraklyon Crete

We make our way around the island discovering Santorini’s wine areas, points of interest and some great wineries. The Thira Archeological museum is absolutely fascinating and the exhibits date back to prehistoric times. We venture out to do a little wine tasting and learn about the ingenious way the island produces its grapes. As the winds on the island are very strong the vines are left to grow on the ground, the island doesn’t produce a lot of wine, but what it does is delicious. After a little tipple we visit Megalochori and have lunch under the vines at Raki, such a cute town to discover after lunch.
We catch a late afternoon ferry to the beautiful island of Crete.
Breakfast and lunch with wine included

Day 11 - Chania Crete

A short drive (20 mins) to Knosses. This morning we discover the ancient city of Knosses with our guide. The palace was the capital of Minoan Crete and was inhabited for thousands of years beginning with Neolithic settlement and was abandoned in 1300 BC. Fascinating!
In the afternoon we arrive into Chania, a gorgeous Venetian port filled with tiny alleyways and small shops selling handicrafts, jewellery, handmade soaps etc.This small city is a delight and we are staying right in the historic centre. (We use two centrally placed hotels for the group).
Breakfast included

Day 12 - Chania Cretan Cooking

After a leisurely breakfast, you might decide to discover Chania - an old Venetian port. You could spend hours discovering the lanes and back alleys here. You might even decide to take part in a traditional Haman (Turkish spa) which is a short walk from our hotel, leave your modesty at home though. Chania is truly such a lovely town.
This afternoon at 3.30pm we meet to take a short drive to a hillside village (this place really is like a wild west town) where we’ll discover much about Cretan cooking. Koula is an expert cook and author and you won’t believe the dishes we prepare in just one afternoon. The class takes place in an old mill, such a lovely setting. All dishes are made of genuine pure Cretan products and this will be informative as well as lots of fun. We enjoy dinner under the stars before venturing back to our lovely hotel.
Breakfast and your own handmade delicious dinner

Day 13 - Our last full day in Chania

This morning take it slowly and prepare for your journey home. We'll meet later for a stroll to some of the most interesting parts of Chania. The archeological museum and the very interesting maritime museum very close to the centre of old Chania. In the afternoon, at leisure you could take a boat tour from the harbour to see part of the island by boat or sit in a restaurant overlooking the Venetian harbour with an aperitivo taking in the delightful scene.
This evening we meet for an aperitivo before venturing out to our last night in gorgeous Chania - how sad! We’ll sit under the stars yet again to taste another great Cretan meal, our restaurant is know all over the island for its authentic recipes. Delicious.
Breakfast and dinner with wine included

Day 14 - Flight to Athens

We end our Greek Indulgence and say goodbye. You will be transported back to the Athens airport around lunchtime.
Breakfast included
This tour involves 2 internal Greek flights from Athens to Mykonos and from Crete to Athens.
