Our top things to do on a holiday to Greece

Ancient History

Greece is bursting at the seams with history and a visit to Athens isn’t complete without a trip to the Acropolis. Soak in the open air museum and imagine what life was life for the ancient Greeks. Beyond Athens, there are traces of the rich history dotted throughout the mainland and many islands, delve in and uncover it for yourself during a holiday to Greece with us.

Paradise Sunsets

Greece has some pretty epic sunsets and Santorini is a particularly special place to watch the sun go down on another day in the Greek islands. As the sky turns from deep blue to red, pink and purple you can sit back with a cold drink and soak in the laid back atmosphere unique to the islands of Greece in the summer time.


Lace up your hiking boots

The island of Crete offers some excellent hiking trails, and the rugged cliffs of the Imbros Gorge is a particuarly great spot for a bit of hiking. On our bite-sized trip here you will set off with picnic and map in hand to explore the 5 mile stretch through the canyon at your own pace. With the White Mountains, green vegetation and steep cliffs you can be sure of some great photo opportunities along the way.
