What is the physical level of this trip?

High. This trip is active and includes moderate to challenging physical activities. There is built in relaxation time spent on the beaches but do expect to be active 3-4 hours most days. An active lifestyle is helpful to enjoy the trip.

Can I opt-out of an included activity?

Of course! This is your trip, and you don’t have to participate in anything you don’t want to. We can also help you set up other optional activities if you'd rather do that. Please be aware that opting out of included activities will not change the price of your trip.

How much time do we spend in Athens?

You will spend two nights and two days in Athens. We strongly recommend arriving early or extending your stay if you want to take full advantage of this historic city.

What types of transportation will we be using?

You’ll be in private vehicles for drives in Athens, Paros, Naxos, and Santorini.

When we travel to the islands, we’ll use public ferries like the locals.

When is the best time to visit Greece?

The best time to visit Greece’s islands is during the warmer months of May to September. During these summer months, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the beautiful beaches and summer activities. July and August tend to be the country’s busiest months, so we’ll avoid these months in order to minimize crowds as much as possible.

Can we use our credit cards in Greece?

Credit cards are widely accepted by stores, hotels, and restaurants in Greece. However, smaller cafes and shops may not accept credit cards, so make sure you carry enough cash to cover small purchases. Please let your credit card company know you’re traveling overseas.

Is tipping common in Greece?

Tipping is not obligatory. However, appreciated, especially when great service is provided.

Can I drink the water in Greece?

The water in Athens is potable. However, the water on the islands is not. Wherever water is not potable, there is easy access to purchase bottled water. We recommend buying large water jugs to reduce plastic waste.
