Itinerary

Hello island lovers! Welcome to Greece, and welcome to the best holiday of your life. It's a big call to make on day 1, but we're making it! Take a minute to unpack in settle in to our hotel before we meet up this evening. First your Trip Manager will give you the rundown of what to expect over the next 10 days, then you'll have free time to explore the local area and find yourself some dinner. Stay: Dorian Inn (or similar)

With no time to waste, we'll start our island hopping adventures today with our first destination: Mykonos. Let's do this! Two nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love. Tonight, you'll have the option to join an exploration of Mykonos by night on a locally guided walking tour of the town's cobbled streets. (B) Stay: Paradise Beach (or similar)

Windmills; cafes overflowing with olives, feta and tzatziki; storybook streets - and that's before you've even taken a dip in the ocean! The day is yours to soak up the sunshine and play in the sea, or if you want more you can take an optional private cruise along the southern coast of Mykonos island, making time for swim stops and a picnic lunch along the way. (B)

This morning we're on to our next Greek island, Paros. Let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only get to visit just one Greek Island, and then remember how lucky we are. Beaches, naturally sculpted swimming coves, a Byzantine church and traditional villages: we must be in Paros. Here you're free to get into the sun and sea vibes, or you can sign up for an optional Paros evening experience like no other. Starting with a tour of Parikia, Paros's capital, you'll hop on a bus to Krios beach for a freshly cooked, traditional Greek food platters complete with lively local music and dancers (and yes, you can try and join in). Rounding it all off with some obligatory plate smashing, you'll have the chance to continue the night in Parikia or take the included transfer back to your accommodation. (B)

Another day, another opportunity for Greek Island sun and swimming. Those who feel like exploring the island can sign up for an optional full day boat cruise around the secluded and pristine beaches of Paros and Antiparos, complete with sunbathing on deck, swim stops and a barbeque lunch including wine. You'll be back in time to join forces with the rest of your crew for an included dinner together this evening. (B/D)

Paros, it's been magical – but today we're taking to the seas again, this time in search of Greece's most insta-famous island: Santorini. Santorini, we have arrived! Tonight you'll have the chance to join us on a cruise and take in the iconic sunset of Oia - this is not an optional you're going to want to miss. (B) Stay: Kalipso Villas (Or similar)

Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini won't explore itself. Today is your day to take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, or roam the streets of Fira. You can even opt to take an incredible volcano cruise around Santorini, complete with crater hike and a soak in local hot springs. We'll join up this evening for an included dinner together, before making the most of a free night out (or in). (B/D)

We're in danger of being spoilt by Santorini now, so it's lucky we have one last Greek Island to hop to before that happens. A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery for our final Island night. And thankfully, there will be no change in the good vibes or the time spent ocean side. We'll join together for an included dinner tonight, with another free evening on the cards afterwards. (B/D) Stay: Far Out (or similar)

Our final Island day, and your last chance to soak up the Greek sun and frolic in the sand without a care in the world. Now is your chance to get some adrenaline in with a speedboat safari, or take a leisurely stroll around the pretty village of Ios Chora and enjoy some stuffed zucchini flowers or baked feta drizzled with olive oil at a local cafe. It's a free evening tonight, so you're going to need the fuel if you want to hit the party scene of Hora until the break of dawn. (B)

While choking back the tears and waving a sad goodbye to the dreamy islands of Greece, try to think positive thoughts: we have a boat ride to enjoy this morning, as well as one more night together in the city of Athens. Ready for one more dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together? We'll soak up the last rays of the Mediterranean sun this afternoon, and if you really want to get the most out of Athens, you'll have the chance to sign up for a city tour and visit to the famous Acropolis. (B) Stay: Dorian Inn (or similar)

And just like that, it's time for the goodbyes. As sad as they are, at least you have the memories. And another 300 Contiki trips to jump aboard! Make the most of your last free breakfast before you kick on to your next port of call. (B)

Great booking, a little tricky due to COVID. 0 , United Kingdom, Sep 2021
Our local trip manager Jay was exceptional. On top of everything scheduled by Contiki, he went on hikes and local walks with us and he helped everyone get their COVID test before departing home. He truly went above and beyond for anything we needed. I did all of the optional activities except for the dinner on the first night, as I felt 50E was a bit ...read more expensive for one meal. I really appreciated the smaller group size (my group was about 27 people) which led to being able to talk to and get to know every person on the trip. This trip was the perfect mix of history/archeology, relaxing beach days, and party evenings. I wouldn't consider myself a big party person, and I still found it fun to go out in the evenings with the group. This trip was worth every penny, and is already one of my favourite vacations I've been on!
Greek Islands Holiday 1 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2016
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.
