“I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on. If you want to see the real Greece and not just hot tourist spots which are crowded and expensive, then hit the side roads with a cycle and sail tour. Start to finish this was the BEST vacation I've ever taken. Everything about the cycling and sailing was planned so well and I just got to cycle, enjoy the company and the great views and food!!”
“One of the best weeks of any holiday we have had. Just the right mix of cycling, "sailing", swimming, eating & entertainment.Perfect way to experience Greek Islands. It will depend a lot on the passengers on any particular trip (particularly as it is a relatively small boat) but we could not have wished for a better group of fellow travellers or guides. We all bonded immediately & shared some great experiences.”
With ancient ruins, white sandy beaches and delicious Mediterranean cuisine, Greece is a tourist hotspot for history buffs, vacationers and foodies alike. The mainland cities of Athens and Delphi are well-known for their ancient temples and other landmarks, while the islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Rhodes are frequented by honeymooners, partiers, and even celebrities. With a country so diverse, it’s hard to know where to start - and you’ll likely never want to leave.

July and August are very hot months in Greece, so be sure to bring sunscreen, light clothing, and plenty of water. Avoid these months if you can’t stand the heat, or if you dislike crowds and high prices.
Greeks are extremely friendly and can be very open and affectionate. Public displays of affection (PDAs) are common and try not to be offended if a local asks you personal questions.
Get ready to eat like a god or goddess. Greece is known for its cuisine, mostly made up of grilled meat and veggies. Cheese is also a huge part of Greek culture. Don’t miss souvlaki, gyro and saganaki.
Don’t worry if you get caught up in exploring, as restaurants are generally open late. In fact, restaurants may be empty if you arrive before 9 pm as dinner time for the locals can be as late as 10 pm.
Punctuality is not necessarily a value in Greece. Service can be slow and transportation delayed - so sit back, relax and embrace the Greek way of life.
