Day By Day


Arrive Athens

Check-in to your hotel and spend the afternoon getting a sneak peek at mythical Athens, a city crammed with ancient wonders and busy with modern, urban soul. Later, meet up with your fellow travellers and Trip Rep back at the hotel and get to know them over dinner.


Use your free time this afternoon to explore more of this open-air museum. You could honour the birthplace of drama by climbing around the massive Theatre of Dionysus or get the background on Ancient Greece at the National Archaeological Museum.

Athens To Mykonos

Today, board a ferry to Mykonos and take advantage of the amazing views across the Aegean, full of rocky islands as you make your way to the beautiful, whitewashed vistas of cosmopolitan Mykonos.


Mykonos is famous for its blissful beaches and party culture. No matter what you're after, chances are this island has got it! You'll soon understand why this happening hub draws people from all walks of life, from jet-setters to backpackers. In your free time, head into Mykonos town and wander through the maze of tiny streets lined by whitewashed, cube-shaped houses. Maybe grab a table in the village and snack on fresh local specialities, like olives, feta and tzatziki dip. For a laid back afternoon, be sure to check out world-famous Paradise Beach. Get some friends together, chill out to the tunes pumping at the beachfront resorts, swim and relax. Wrap up the day in Little Venice and watch the sun set over the Aegean. But don't stop there - get into the vibe and party at one of Mykonos' many bars and hip clubs.

Mykonos To Santorini

Today: change islands and it's a total change of scene. Santorini will make your jaw drop with its stunning natural beauty - the result of a massive volcanic eruption. From the water, look up at the iconic blue-domed, whitewashed churches. Once we're back on land, take in the fantastic views of the neighbouring volcanic islands.


Start your day getting familiar with this gorgeous island. Head to Santorini's highest point for full blown vistas over the crater then cool of with a swim stop at Perissa Beach. Your Trip Manager will fill you in on Fira - dramatically perched on the edge of the crater - as the group explores its narrow streets. Get tips on the best places to pick up a piece of Santorini's famous jewellery and where to try out the delicious local specialty, domatokeftedes (fried tomato balls). Otherwise head to one of the distinctive black or red sand beaches, and soak up the breathtaking scenery. You could jump on an optional boat ride out to the active volcanic island of Nea Kamini. Cruise past lava formations and get up close to the active crater. Or head to the northern tip of Santorini with the group to catch one of the island's famously spectacular sunsets on the Oia at Sunset optional excursion.

Santorini To Ios

After free time this morning, we cruise on to Ios. Relax on the boat and hang out with the group. Peaceful by day, pumping by night, Ios is the ultimate party destination.


Relax on sandy beaches or lounge about poolside before a big night out, when Ios' villages come alive. Head to the small streets of Hora, packed with clubs, bars and pubs and let loose to the pumping tunes. Otherwise, join the outdoor party in the squares and lanes. If you're keen, you can keep it moving until dawn!

Ios To Athens

Wave goodbye to Ios and the Cycladic Islands as we set sail back to mainland Greece and spend a final evening together in the mythological city of Athens.

Depart Athens

The trip ends after breakfast and it's time to say farewell to your new friends.

“Greek Islands Holiday”

I thought the tour was good and the tour guide had a good knowledge of the history. However, he lacked communication skills and was not open to a lot of things. He seemed to expect everyone to know what he mentioned and didn't have respect for those who didn't understand. He also lacked professionalism.
