Magic Moments from Greece

Greece will surprise you at every turn with its ancient monuments, incomparable sites, delicious food, and laid-back lifestyle — it's truly magical. But don't take our word for it. Here are just a few "wow" moments from recent Athens & the Heart of Greece tour alums.


"Delphi was so amazing. So much of the artifacts and buildings have been preserved, and the museum is incredible. We really enjoyed this location because we were the only group there. I'll never forget this experience."

— Judy, August 2023 tour


"I loved exploring the Mani Peninsula — Kardamyli, Monemvasia, and the Rock, Nafplio (especially the dinner at a local restaurant with Greek musicians), and Hydra. Every stop had a takeaway and incredible scenery!"

Acropolis, Athens, Greece

"Climbing the Acropolis was surreal. I studied the architecture in school and to suddenly BE THERE walking amongst the ruins was amazing. The Oracle of Delphi and the atmosphere of the place. And Hydra. I loved Hydra; I could have spent forever there."

— Anna, June 2023 tour

Hydra harbor

"I loved the island of Hydra! It was so relaxing being on an island with no cars or trucks! We walked everywhere — the beautiful port, winding streets with gorgeous views around every corner, and to the little beach villages along the pathway high above the sea!"

— Liz, April 2023 tour

Mani Peninsula

"I had not expected the beautiful mountainous landscape and the seaside sites we visited. All of the visits to the Peloponnese and Mani sites were visually spectacular. The food was probably my biggest 'wow.'"

Peloponnese folk dancers

"In the tiny, remote village of Lagkadia in the mountains of the Peloponnese peninsula a group of traditionally dressed Greek dancers entertained our group and encouraged everyone to get up and join in. It was great fun and we all really enjoyed ourselves."
