Greece tours and excursions
Taking a tour is certainly the most convenient way to explore places and sightseeings in Greece. The majority of guided Greece tours are organized in Athens, Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, Crete and other tourist developed destinations around the country. These tours include visits to important monuments, picturesque places and occasionally interesting museums.
Tours in Greece take place in modern, air-conditioned bus with the latest comforts and they are usually accompanied by a guide. Very fun are also the boat tours in the islands. Famous boat trips in Greece are, for example, the trip to the volcano of Santorini, to the Blue Caves and the Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos, and from Mykonos to the sacred island of Delos. These boat trips give the chance for an enjoyable and interesting day at the sun.
Apart from day tours, there are also multi-days tours departing mostly from Athens and Thessaloniki. These multi-day tours combine visits to interesting archaeological sites, beach destinations and picturesque places around the Greek mainland. These Greece tours packages include accommodation in upscale hotels, transfer with modern bus and occasionally half or full board.
Greek island tours are also very popular in summer, combining many islands and departing either directly from an island or from Athens. If you do not like group tours, then ask for private tours so that you have a less strict schedule and more freedom to organize your trip. Transfer in these private tours is made by taxi or small van if you are a large company.
