Overview

All About Greece Honeymoon (14 Days)

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Athens, Delphi, Peloponnese Mountains, Ancient Olympia, Seaside Kardamyli, Mani Villages, Medieval Monemvasia, Byzantine Mystras, Mycenae and Nafplio, Ancient Epidavros, Island of Hydra

After you are transferred to your hotel, you'll get oriented to your neighborhood and walk to a nearby restaurant where you can get acquainted over dinner. You will be staying in Athens for 2 nights. Please note that there will be no bus. Be ready for light walking.

This morning you'll hike to the top of Athens' legendary Acropolis, where you'll take a walking tour of its 2,500-year-old Golden Age temples, dominated by the dramatic Parthenon. Then you will work your way down and tour the sleek new Acropolis Museum, custom built to showcase the amazing Parthenon sculptures. Your afternoon and evening will be free for exploring Athens' marketplaces – the ancient Agora and the modern Plaka's labyrinth of inviting streets, squares, shops and cafés. There will be no bus again but strenuous walking.

Today, you'll tour Athens' impressive National Archaeological Museum, home to amazingly-preserved masterpieces in marble, bronze and gold. Then you'll leave the city and drive into the rugged countryside. In a dramatic setting on the flanks of 8,000-foot Mt. Parnassus you'll enjoy the fresh air and tour the mystical ruins of Delphi. Here, 25 centuries ago, the celebrated oracle allowed mere mortals to converse with the gods. This evening you'll have dinner together and stay in the town of Delphi. The bus trip will take about 4 hours.

Today you'll cross over the Gulf of Corinth to the Peloponnese Peninsula, where you'll temporarily leave our bus for a steep, scenic cog railway ride past the waterfalls and caves lining the narrow Vouraikos Gorge. From the end of the line, your bus will take you to our destination high up in the Menalon Mountains, where you'll enjoy dinner from a wood-fired oven. Tonight you will stay in or near Lagkadia.

This morning's winding mountain drive will take you to Olympia, site of the world's first Olympics, over 2,700 years ago. There you'll take a vivid walking tour of Olympia's ancient athletic venues, temples and museum, followed by lunch together. This afternoon's drive will take you along sweeping views of the Ionian Sea to the relaxed seaside village of Kardamyli, where you'll stay.

Kardamyli is an ideal place to enjoy a "vacation from your vacation." After some orientation by your guide, the day will be all yours. You might hike along the ancient cobbled paths that wind their way through the nearby hills — or just relax on the beach — and end your day with a grilled seafood dinner and a view from the little taverna you've discovered.

Today, you'll follow the coast to the isolated Mani Peninsula, home to generations-long clan wars, salt-of-the-earth villages and unique pyrgospita ,the tower houses. If Greece had a Tombstone and an O.K. Corral, here is where they'd be. After making a few off-the-beaten-path discoveries, you'll ride on to the dramatically-set medieval town of Monemvasia, where you'll be free for dinner. Tonight, you will sleep in mainland Monemvasia.

This morning you'll cross the causeway to tackle the massive rock that shoots straight up out of the blue-green Aegean Sea. After an orientation walk around Monemvasia's cozy little Lower Town, the rest of the day will be free. You can wander more of the romantic walled town or take a swim in the Aegean. Those who want a workout can hike to the very top of the rock. You will be rewarded with sweeping Aegean views and a chance to explore the ruins of the Upper Town which is a living museum of Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian history.

Today is the day to head up into the heart of the Peloponnese, where you'll tour the haunting ruins of the fortress town of Mystras and its still-standing group of Byzantine churches. After stopping in nearby Sparta for lunch, you'll continue north to our destination: the delightful, fortress-topped harbor town of Nafplio. We'll enjoy a Greek wine and ouzo tasting, and stay in Nafplio.

After breakfast you'll take a short drive to mysterious Mycenae, the fortified city founded by Perseus a thousand years before the Parthenon was built. Then you'll take a walking tour through the grand Lion Gate, along the "cyclopean" walls, and into a remarkably-domed tholos tomb. After that you'll return to Nafplio for a free afternoon to explore the colorful alleyways of the Old Town, ride a boat to the little castle island in the harbor, or hike up to enjoy a Venetian fortress view. You'll regroup for dinner together this evening.

This morning you'll be driven to nearby Epidavros. Once the most famous healing center in the Mediterranean, today's star attraction is its ancient theater, large enough to accommodate 15,000 togas. You'll learn about the roots of drama here, before hopping a boat to the idyllic traffic-free island of Hydra. Tonight you'll share dinner together at one of the town's oldest tavernas and stay in Hydra.

Your entire day and evening will be free to soak up the whitewashed architecture as you wander Hydra's narrow streets and harbor promenade. You might swim at a nearby beach, hire a boat for the day, hike across the island, or try to make friends with a donkey.

Today, you'll take a ferry ride to Piraeus, where your bus will be waiting to take you back to our Athens hotel. Your afternoon will be free to wander and shop through the Plaka, or explore other parts of this bustling city. Tonight you'll gaze at the floodlit Acropolis and enjoy a final dinner together, sharing travel memories and toasting new friends. you will stay in Athens tonight.

There will be no group activities today. You can easily catch a cab for the airport, or to nearby Piraeus where a fleet of ferries awaits to transport those with time to even more Greek destinations.

Janine and Ramona Group

You arranged a tour for my group of five on may 10 and 11. I would like you to know that we were very impressed with how smoothly the arrangements went, from the time we were picked up at the hotel until we were dropped off there the next day. Our guide, Nesrin , was wonderful! She provided so much information and was able to answer our questions, and she modified the trip at the end to include a tour of a winery which we had not expected. Two of our group had taken such tours before in other countries and remarked at how coordinated and exceptional your tour was. We were of course disappointed that we could not take the balloon ride but completely understand that safety must come first. I guess that gives me an excuse to visit again in the future.

I will gladly recommend your company to anyone I know who is travelling to Turkey. And I would like to add that I found the Turkish people in general to be very welcoming, kind, and helpful. I enjoyed your country and thank you again for arranging this tour. It will remain a fond memory for me.

Again Thank you so much

I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Istanbul, Onur Usta picked us up and we found him very sweet, friendly and accommodating.He took us to have good meals on both days and we toured the city.Unfortunately, we were unable to get into the Topkapi or Hagia Sofia because of the crowds lined up there for tickets, which would have meant a 2 – 3 hour wait.We also had a good time in Kusadasi, were driven to Ephesus and enjoyed it greatly. Thanks for arranging this, I’ll certainly let all my friends know about your company. Kindest regards,

Barbara & Connor

I am writing to let you know of the wonderful service I received from Elite Turkey Tours. I was trying to put a vacation together and she was accommodating, friendly, professional and a delight!! My son’s birthday was Aug 17 and I was waiting to get vacation approval so I could book a trip and put the info in his birthday card! Early afternoon on the 15th I got approval and called Hulya so she could check 2 trips for my final choice. She was prompt, called me and I booked the 8 days in Paris, Italy, Christmas. Between phone tags and my demanding work schedule, we spoke at 4:30 PST and she faxed me the confirmation and trip schedule so I could put it in my Son’s card. He was thrilled and excited and it made our day!! Thank you and I will continue to work with your company in all my travels!

Larissa & Justin

Justin and I wanted to thank you for sending the checks for the refund in Antalya!! We greatly appreciate your help on everything and have had a great experience working with you!

We wish you all the best!

I just returned from a business trip and quite exhausted after all this travelling….you can quote me below:

I had a wonderful time touring Bursa, Cumalikizik and Iznik.

Bursa is, in my opinion, NorthWest Turkeys hidden gem. If you want wonderful historic sites, gastronomy Iskender kebap), and shopping all to yourself in a verdant setting go to Bursa.

Cumalikizik is a wonderful original Ottoman village nearby…best enjoyed off-season. I would imagine staying overnight in snowy winter would be magical.

Iznik, while much smaller and boasting fewer sites, is of spiritual importance to many and, for those, not to be missed….
