Greece, Mykonos & Santorini Islands Tour - Globus®

Greek Island Hopper (RM)

10 Day Tour from Athens to Athens

2017 Tour Details

Stunning scenery, sun-soaked beaches, the crystal-clear Aegean Sea, and tasty Greek cuisine…on this Greek Islands tour, you’ll experience all of this and more!

Your tour starts in Athens with guided sightseeing and a visit to the Acropolis, dating back to the 5th century BC and a symbol of Athens’ power and wealth at its greatest peak—the Golden Age. The tour ends with a flight to Athens and an overnight. In between, sail into the deep-blue waters of the Aegean Sea and spend three nights on the island of Mykonos and three nights in Santorini.

Mykonos, Greece's most famous jet-set island, has a beautiful seafront village, sandy beaches, famous windmills, and whitewash houses. Here, you'll visit the Church of Agia Kiriaki, renowned for its beautiful icons, and have plenty of time to relax on the beach, walk through the network of narrow streets, sample local specialties, and take optional excursions. In Santorini, still an active volcano, stroll along the cobblestone streets, enjoy the beautiful beaches, savor the local specialties, enjoy tastings at famous wineries, and witness the stunning views.

A Greek Islands tour would not be complete without sampling the local cuisine. On both islands, you'll dine at a local restaurant, where you'll sample the local specialties. Globus has also included a couple of special treats: a traditional Mykonian dessert, Amygdalota, and a traditional Ouzo, Greece’s most popular drink, in Santorini.

If you are looking for a fantastic Greek Islands vacation, look no further. Globus handles the details so all you have to do is relax and enjoy these islands like they should be enjoyed.
