Sailing the Greek islands for a week sounds amazing for good reason. Board a catamaran with an experienced crew to hop from island to stunning island in the Cyclades. Along the way, explore the best of Mykonos and watch the sunset from Santorini, see ancient ruins, and swim in the azure Aegean waters before bedding down in your boat each night.
Many travelers flock to Santorini and Mykonos, but during this trip, you'll visit two spectacular yet less-traveled islands in the Cyclades chain. Start off in Paros, where golden sand beaches and charming villages are yours to explore. Then hop a ferry to neighboring Naxos for a bustling Chora (main town), beautiful whitewashed villages clinging to mountainsides, and countryside filled with churches, archaeological sites, and local distilleries.
Discover Greece's hidden treasures on this action-packed adventure. Hike the tallest mountains in the Peloponnese, paddle the beautiful Mani Peninsula, and scale the heights of ancient Sparta's Mount Taygetus. Complete your trip with a swim at the southernmost point of mainland Europe.
Spend six days exploring the culture, nature, and history of Crete through a culinary lens as you eat and drink your way through olive groves, wineries, gastronomically significant villages, and farms where the night's meal was grown just an arm's length away.
Cruise around the Aegean Sea and discover Greece's southern Dodecanese Islands on this 4-day sailing adventure. You'll island hop from Rhodes to quiet Symi and on to Tilos, before dropping anchor off the coast of uninhabited Alimia. Explore the historic isles, swim in the turquoise waters, and sleep under the stars.

First greek trip, Greece - Sep 15 - Oct 7, 2018
Tasos did a superb job setting up what is, perhaps, a somewhat unique trip. No islands but remote, ancient Byzantine churches. No beaches but many monasteries. No classical sites but every Byzantine site within reach. With other travel agents we've had to go back and forth several times to convince them we knew what we wanted. With Tasos - one time and he had it. Thank you.
In 3 1/2 weeks there are so many spots we loved that we can't list them all so here are some highlights:

Greek small ship tour, Greece - Sep 25 - Oct 6, 2018
Angeliki did a great job with the arrangements. The drivers were extremely reliable and helpful. It was too bad that the weather interfered with some of the excursions that we were most looking forward to. The hotel accommodations were very nice and well located. The local guides were well informed and entertaining. We really enjoyed the volcano tour at Santorini and of course the Acropolis and the other experiences we had. Angeliki was very diligent about keeping in touch and accommodating our needs.
Trip to greece, Greece - Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2018
We had a fabulous trip and were able to relax and enjoy every step of the way thanks to kimkim and Tasos. I was nervous at first using a travel service that I couldn't find many reviews for, but it couldn't have been better. The planning process was easy and fun, with an email exchange with Tasos to find the right mix of active/relaxing/cultural activities. He found great hotels for us and arranged all transfers. In the midst of planning, the ferry schedule changed and Tasos alerted us right... read more
