Greece makes a positively grand vacation
intergenerational families. Grandparents have
lots of quality time with their grandchildren
because the pace in Greece in general and on
this tour in particular is, as the Greeks say, siga
siga --- meaning slow, slow. Lots of time to
smell the oregano and rosemary growing wild
on the side of the road.
There is no specific age requirement for
grandchildren. Age is less important for this
tour than the attitude of the child. The tour is
geared towards Greece’s great legacy as the
cradle of Western Civilization. This means lots
of archaeology and history embedded in the
daily itineraries. It is an educationally oriented
tour, particularly if you opt for the professional
archaeology guides for private tours at the
great sites.

  • Reviewer: Francie Johnston located in San Francisco, California USA
    Our tour [on the Cyclades islands] was meticulously planned and executed -- the islands, towns where we stayed, cycling routes, sag support, etc. were terrific.  It was logistically very complicated because we always had to be back at a port at the correct time to catch the ferry to the next island, but we never seemed rushed or anything cut short.   
  • Reviewer: Louise Taylor located in Olympia, Washington USA
    Thank you for another wonderful trip [hiking in Crete], I think the very best.  I will miss the whole group, and of course Greece.

    What a fabulous trip!  3 of the women I train with are excited about the possibility of travelling to cycle Greece together next year with your company.  I'll let you know as we discuss plans more!  Thank-you once again for a fantastic trip.  Your attention to detail was so appreciated.  You just spoiled everyone.  And I appreciated the opportunity to see a side of Greece most people will never experience.

Day 1: Athens
You stay in the heart of the city, the Plaka, amidst the
neoclassical buildings and cafes and marble sidewalks. Rest up
from jet lag. Biggest activity of the day is watching the “ballet”
of the changing of the guards at Parliament.
Day 2: Athens
For the 2004 Olympics an elevator was installed to help folks get
to the top of the Acropolis, making it accessible for all persons, all
ages, all abilities. Fun games in the afternoon: a scavenger hunt
with a Greek mythology theme.

Day 3: Athens
Travel south to the tip of Attiki, to the mighty Temple of
Poseidon. En route visit the naval museum with a replica of
those ancient Greek galleys known as trireme. For soothing
relaxation swim in the healing thermal waters at Vouliagmeni.

Day 4: Kos
Experience the calm and tranquility of tiny Nyseros. Take a
short walk down into a dormant volcano that smells of sulphur
and you can see the smoke rising from the earth. Swim at the
local black sand beach. Alternate itinerary --- sail to Kalymnos,
the home of the sponge divers --- visit the island’s amazing

Day 5: Rhodes
Transfer to Rhodes by high speed ferry boat. Old Rhodes town is
car-free which means it’s more quiet that other places and safer
for walking. In the evening listen to live bouzouki music.

Day 6: Rhodes
Visit lovely Lindos, another car free town. It has an ancient
Acropolis which the kids ascend to by donkey. Terrific views of
the sea for miles around. Swim in the underwater sea cave!
Beautiful hand-laid pebble mosaic terraces.

Day 7: Rhodes
Valley of the Butterflies. Swimming in Kallithea, a small cove
that once held an ornate Italian spa

Day 8: Departures
