This private luxury tour is ideal for anyone fascinated by ancient civilizations.

Begin in Athens, the capital of Greece and a showcase of ancient civilization. During touring with your private guide, visit the breathtaking Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of ancient ruins (including the Parthenon), and the wonderful Acropolis Museum. Also explore the ancient Agora, Syntagma Square, the National Garden and the charming Plaka neighborhood, where shops and traditional tavernas line the streets. Opt to visit museums such as the Benaki Museum or Museum of Cycladic Art to see treasures of Greek archaeology, folk art, coins and jewelry. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange an excursion along the beautiful coast to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon.

One day, enjoy a full-day private excursion to Delphi, the spectacular, UNESCO-inscribed ruins of an ancient oracle overlooking a deep gorge.

Continue to Crete and the historic seaside town of Chania. During private touring, explore cobblestone backstreets and see the interesting mix of architecture that reflects the island’s Venetian and Turkish occupations, such as the Venetian Harbor, Venetian lighthouse, minarets and the Mosque of the Janissaries. Also get a sense of the local lifestyle at the covered market, and take an excursion to the Aptera archaeological site in the hills outside the city. Other touring options in Chania include visiting local churches, the synagogue and various museums. One day, take a private excursion into the rolling hills to an olive estate for a private tour and olive oil tasting. Also visit a winery to sample some of Crete’s best wines.

Continue to eastern Crete and the resort town of Elounda. En route, tour the monumental Palace of Knossos, a sprawling archaeological site that was the center of the great Minoan civilization until around 1400 B.C., and the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, which has an impressive and extensive collection of Minoan artifacts. During private touring around Elounda, visit the village of Kritsa to see Byzantine frescoes and browse for local crafts, and take a boat to Spinalonga, an atmospheric island with a ruined fort and a fascinating history. There will also be time to relax at your luxurious seaside resort and enjoy its facilities.
