Athens, Santorini, Crete

This private family tour visits three of Greece’s most popular destinations—historic Athens, scenic Santorini and mythological Crete—offering the perfect combination of important cultural sights, educational adventure and seaside relaxation.

Begin in Athens, the capital of Greece and a showcase of ancient civilization. During flexible touring with your private guide and driver, visit the breathtaking Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of ancient ruins (including the Parthenon), and the wonderful Acropolis Museum; explore the charming Plaka neighborhood; ride the funicular up Mount Lycabettus; and see the changing of the guard in front of the Parliament building. If desired, take an excursion along the beautiful coast to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon and enjoy the sunset. During leisure time, perhaps visit museums such as the Benaki Museum or Museum of Cycladic Art to see treasures of Greek archaeology, history, folk art, coins and jewelry.

Continue to unforgettable Santorini, a beautiful volcanic island with dramatic landscapes. During private touring, visit the photogenic clifftop village of Oia and other island highlights. One day, opt for a privately guided activity, such as a horseback ride through the traditional village of Megalochori; a bike ride along wine roads, beaches and through charming villages; or a hike from Fira to Oia to enjoy the scenic views along the way. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional activities, such as touring the ruins of the ancient Minoan city of Akrotiri and a private boat excursion with opportunities for swimming and stopping at the island's distinctive black- and red-sand beaches.

Next, visit Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands and the home of the ancient Minoan civilization. During private touring around Elounda, venture to Spinalonga, an atmospheric island with a ruined fort that kids will enjoy exploring. Another day, visit local villages known for crafts and tour the ruins of Malia Minoan Palace, which dates from around 1650 B.C. Alternatively, visit Lassithi Plateau and see Dikteon Cave, where, according to Greek mythology, the god Zeus was born.

This tour can easily be extended to include Turkey, other European destinations or time elsewhere in Greece, such as a stay at the exclusive Aman resort near the town of Porto Heli.
