Why should you travel to Greece with us?

It took Odysseus ten years to return home from Troy. We’re much better navigators of Greece’s cities, archipelagoes and islands.

There is a small, twisted olive tree in the grounds of the Temple of Poseidon. Here, on this exact spot of the cliffs of Sounion, you can watch the setting sun like nowhere else on earth: burnt orange, the sea singing with myth. Since 2005, we’ve returned to Greece time and time again; getting to know each and every lump and rivet in places such as this. Unlike other travel operators (content to never take you beneath the surface), we want you to feel the same excitement that made travelers of the 18th century (people like Lord Byron) yearn for this country; its poetry, its landscapes, its food, its warmth – regardless of whether you want to sail by boat amongst the Cyclades or wine and dine on the island of Spetses.

Part of our attraction to Greece comes from the idea that some islands – and by some, we mean many of the 6,000 islands that Greece is comprised of – are still free of crowds and untainted by mass tourism. Islands like Folegandros and Sifnos feel like a couple of our best-kept secrets, but you don’t want to miss out on these smaller, authentic islands, known for their ancient villages, freshly-caught seafood, and rustic boutique hotels.

Top Locations in Greece

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Greece, we’d go for these.
Santorini in Greece

Santorini

Sail into the heart of a drowned volcano.

A stagger of blue-white houses plummets into the ocean, in this otherworldly place. Santorini is not so much an island as the crest of a water-sunk volcano – its explosive days long in the past. Sensual, glamorous, and easygoing; the island – between its twin villages of Fira and Oia – possesses some truly magnificent wineries and restaurants.

Temple Poseidon in Athens

Athens

All eyes look to the Akropolis in this busy, big and increasingly on-trend city.

Athens is not a place of wide boulevards and shining towers. Its labyrinthine streets, tree-covered squares and scrappy Grecian ruins make it a minor playground for adventurous bars, restaurants and hotels. You can check out some of the world’s most iconic archaeological sites and then lose yourself in a succession of effortlessly cool bars.

Spetses in Greece

Spetses

No cars go.

Spetses – pretty, popular, old-timey – doesn’t care for the motor car. It doesn’t care much for roads. Its singular settlement is surrounded by beautiful little coves, pine forests, and – despite its smallness – some of the region’s best restaurants and swimming spots. Glamorous to its core, we’ll put you up at the elegant Poseidonion – founded over 100 years ago, set amongst the mansions which made this island’s name.
