Somewhere We Know is a cultural travel company based in Athens, Greece. We create unique experiential travels and cultural trips, food & wine tours, hiking experiences and family trips in the Peloponnese, Epirus and other unexplored regions of Greece, as well as in the Greek islands. We welcome to our cultural tours like-minded people who travel with a purpose: to learn about Greek history, philosophy and culture, to collect moments beyond the ordinary, to explore unknown paths, to live exceptional experiences, and to embrace the everyday life of modern Greece.
We organize and run our own tours:
- Cultural travels: For travelers who wish to understand the history of Greece and the evolution of its culture as it reveals through ancient monuments, architecture, arts, customs, and traditions.
- Experiential travels: Expect lots of walks and hikes but also activities through which our travelers learn new things i.e. participate in harvesting the grapes, the olives, in collecting wild medicinal herbs, practice yoga, participate in an art class, etc.
- Special activities for children: When our travelers travel with children, aged 4-14 years old, for an additional fee we incorporate special activities for children. The benefit is that children learn through creative playing and will have their own specialized guide.
