Family Tour of Greece

(9 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
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 private touring with your expert guide, visit the city’s top sights such as the breathtaking Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of ancient ruins (including the Parthenon), and the wonderful Acropolis Museum. Also take an excursion along the beautiful coast to Cape Sounion to see the ancient Temple of Poseidon.

Continue to unforgettable Santorini, a beautiful volcanic island with dramatic landscapes, and stay in a luxury resort overlooking the caldera. During private touring, visit the photogenic clifftop village of Oia and tour the fascinating ruins of the ancient city of Akrotiri. Also enjoy time at leisure to relax at your resort. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional touring and activities, such as horseback riding, hiking or biking along the wine routes. One afternoon, enjoy a private boat excursion in the caldera with opportunities for swimming and stopping at the island's distinctive black- and red-sand beaches.

The tour concludes in Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands and ancient home of the enterprising Minoan civilization, which dates back more than 3,500 years. During private touring around Elounda, visit the village of Kritsa to see Byzantine frescoes and browse for local crafts, explore the ruins of the Doric city of Lato perched in the beautiful hills, 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 the shops and restaurants in the charming nearby beach town.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional activities such as a cooking class focused on Cretan recipes, a tour of a local olive oil estate, a tour of the Minoan Palace of Malia or Palace of Knossos, hiking in the hills, or a visit to Lassithi to see the cave where the Greek god Zeus was born.

This tour can easily be extended to include a stay at the exclusive Amanzoe resort—one of Greece’s most deluxe properties—or in nearby Turkey or elsewhere in Europe.
