The purpose of this page is to help you find the perfect itinerary for your next trip to Greece. Whether you are looking to book from a 3rd party, or are interested in building your own trip – I’ve aimed to give you the pros and cons for each itinerary. These itineraries are available from various Tour Operators, and I’ve provided links to their offerings. My background is in tour design, and tour operations in Greece, so perhaps you will find my commentary to be useful
Athens & the Heart of Greece, 14 Days, Rick Steves Travel
Review: A+. Highly recommend. This itinerary gets top marks for getting a little off the beaten path (Mani, Mystras, the mountains of the Peloponnese) and also going to places that are must-sees. I also liked the beach time as Hydra is small and presents ample swimming time, plus there is at least one other beach day in Mani. It’s easy to envision that there is a lot of walking on this tour – but there is also a lot of relaxation. One of the longest drives (Athens -Delphi) is right in the beginning, otherwise the tour stays in a very compact area. This means limited bus time.
