Hello and welcome to Greece! Arrive in Athens at your own pace and let our driver take you to your hotel for you to check in and get ready for your first day in Greece.

On the second day, see the very best and most beloved sites of the city in just 7 hours! Follow your knowledgeable and friendly guide who will show you around the majestic Acropolis, the impressive Acropolis Museum, the two most famous squares, Syntagma and Monastiraki, and many more, by giving you a greater understanding of ancient and modern Greece.
The following day, take a leisurely morning and the opportunity to explore the city on your own, revisiting any favorite shops or undiscovered archaeological sites. In the afternoon, you'll head down to the Athenian Riviera, full of both history and stunning island views. You’ll get to Cape Sounio and Poseidon’s outstanding Temple just in time to admire one of the best sunset views Greece has to offer. On your way back to your hotel, why not stop at a sea-side restaurant for a lovely dinner - an evening of magic for the two of you!
The next day, it’s time to start discovering the Greek island way of life! Pack your bags and get transferred to the port of Piraeus in the comfort of a private modern vehicle. Get on a ferry heading to your first island stop. Tinos, an island full of surprises: traditional villages, Cycladic dovecotes, alluring beaches, the pilgrimage, and the church of the Virgin Mary. As soon as you arrive, your private driver will be waiting for you to greet you and take you to your hotel. Take a rest or roam the streets to uncover the island’s charming beauty enjoying precious moments with your partner.
For day 5, a private tour of the island is due! Follow your local guide and visit the picturesque village of Falatados, known for its raki and its many treadles; admire the granite mountain of Exomvourgo; feel like you’re on the moon at the village of Volax; have a swim at the famous surfers’ beach of Kolimpithra, and end your tour with a wine tasting experience of five Greek wines accompanied by local delicacies!
The following morning, reach Tinos port with your personal driver and catch the ferry to your next destination, the ‘queen of the Cyclades’, Mykonos! Once you reach the island, get transferred to your accommodation and relax for the day.
On day 7, catch all of Mykonos’ highlights with a private half-day tour that will show you around the best attractions and hidden spots of the island! Along with your local guide, begin your tour by walking through the labyrinth of the old town, the narrow and cobbled alleys. See the port, the whitewashed churches, and the famous windmills. Move on to the second main village of Mykonos, Ano Mera where you have some free time to wander around. Your next stop is Kalafatis beach for some relaxation and we’ve saved the best for last: an elevated spot so you can capture the outstanding view of the town, the Aegean Sea, and the neighboring islands!
The next day, why not spend a relaxing day filled with sea and sun! You can choose from one of Mykonos' many lovely beaches, such as Platis Gialos or Elia. If you feel like it, you can opt for a wine tasting experience on the beach just for you. Get a taste of Greece through a tasting of 5 ancient wine varieties paired with local cheese, listen to stories, and enjoy the great view, the sun and sea. A romantic way to end your stay in Mykonos!
The final destination of your amazing trip is the largest and most fertile island of the complex, Naxos! Let your driver take you to Mykonos port and board the ferry to Naxos. Upon your arrival, enjoy a comfortable drive to your hotel, where you can take it easy for the day.
On the tenth day of your itinerary, get to know first-hand the island’s history with the company of your expert local guide! Visit some of the most important and iconic locations of Naxos, such as the impressive ancient temple of Demeter, and get introduced to modern Naxian culture by visiting a traditional distillery and a pottery workshop. Try a variety of olive oils at the Museum of Olive Press and if you wish include a delicious Naxian lunch in the picturesque village of Apeiranthos.
Day 11 is free for you to choose how to spend your day with your significant other. Take the day for yourselves and get familiar with the island’s beauties on your own or spend a day sailing across the deep blue waters of Naxos island. Explore hidden caves and remote pristine coves, swim, and snorkel in crystal clear waters and enjoy your freshly-made lunch on board. An unforgettable experience!
On the last day, your personal driver will take you to Naxos airport so you can take the flight back home. Your incredible trip to Greece may have reached its end, but you’ll return home full of experiences you and your partner will always remember! Until next time!
