If you're looking for a taste of the ancient history and the beauty of Greece, but you're on a budget, then this 5-day shoestring tour of Greece is ideal for you.

The tour starts in Greece's capital city of Athens, where we'll explore its main attractions such as the marbled Panathenaic Stadium, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, the Parliament and the memorial to the Unknown Soldier, the Academy, the University, the National Library and Constitution Square. We'll also visit the famous Acropolis, which boasts some of Greece's most important architectural monuments including the Pergamon which overlooks the city.

From Athens, we travel to Delphi, taking in the beauty of its famous archaeological site which houses the the remains of the sanctuaries of Apollo and Athena Pronaia. From Delphi, we head into the hills and to Kalambaka - the gateway to Meteora. The scenery here is spectacular with towering cliffs and forests overlooking the town. Over twenty monasteries perch on the mountain-tops and cliff-sides, with six still in use today. After exploring and visiting some of these we return to Athens to finish the tour.

Extensions to this Greece tour are available to many of the Greek islands in the Aegean if you would like to add some time relaxing and exploring by the sea.

Day 1 Arrive in Athens, airport to hotel transfers included

Upon arrival into Athens airport (ATH) you'll be met by one of our representatives who will then transfer you to your hotel.

Day 2 Exploring Athens

Our first full day of our Greece tour will see us head out on a city tour of Athens. Our first stop is at the Panathenaic Stadium, which hosted the very first modern Olympics in 1896 and is the only stadium on the planet built entirely of marble. We'll also make our way to the Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian's Arch - which was built in 131 AD by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as part of a wall separating the old and new cities of Athens.

Our journey through Athens also takes us to the Parliament and the memorial to the Unknown Soldier, the Academy, the University, the National Library and the Constitution Square.

Later in the day, we'll make our way to the Acropolis, which is an ancient citadel perched on a rocky outcrop above the city and houses some of Greece's most famous architectural masterpieces such as the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and the Parthenon - which was built to honour the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron.

Day 3 Travel to Delphi

After spending the day exploring the beauty of Athens, we leave early as we make our way to the town of Delphi. The journey to Delphi takes you through Thebes, Levadia and Arachova - a mountainous village nestling picturesquely at the foothills of Mount Parnassus.

Once we arrive in Delphi, we'll make our way to its famous archaeological site, which houses the remains of the sanctuaries of Apollo and Athena Pronaia, as well as an ancient stadium and theater. Delphi Archaeological Museum displays artifacts found among the ruins. We'll also visit the marbled Treasury of the Athenians, which was used to store the rich offerings of the kings.

Later in the day, we'll say goodbye to Delphi as we make our way to the traditional Greek village of Kalambaka, the gateway to the ancient Meteora monuments. We'll spend the rest of the evening in Kalambaka.

OVERNIGHT:

Kalambaka hotel

MEALS:

Breakfast, Dinner

EXTRAS:

None


Day 4 Exploring Meteora

Our day starts with a trip to the unique rock formations at Meteora - A UNESCO World Heritage Site. Home to over twenty mountaintop and cliffside monasteries, some which are still in use today, these places of worship were used by Monks in the 14th century who were searching for a safe place to live and worship. As a result, the only way to access many of the monasteries was by rock climbing or being carried up in a basket. The scenery here is spectacular and a photographer's dream.

Later in the day, we'll return to Athens by travelling through Trikala, Lamia, Thermopylae, stopping along the way to see the statue of Leonidas, which was erected to commemorate the Battle of Thermopylae.

Day 5 Your Greek adventure ends, hotel to airport transfers included

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. If your flight is later in the day, feel free to do some last minute shopping or exploring in Athens, before we transfer you to the airport to board your flight back home. You could also extend your tour by heading into the Aegean Sea to visit one or more of the famous Greek islands.

Options

Our tours are designed to include all that you need to enjoy a really special time in the destination you‘re visiting. However, we do also offer some extra options to complement the tour and add some additional sightseeing or activities, or some extra time at either end of the tour.

All accommodation based options (e.g. Single supplements, extra nights, cruise upgrades) should be booked and paid for in advance so that we can make the appropriate arrangements. Other options may either be booked and paid for in advance or while you are on the tour, though we recommend booking in advance to ensure there are no issues with availability.

Many options are priced the same throughout the year, but some may incur single or high season supplements - full details are given on the tour reservation form or on request.

Tour Notes

The detailed Tour Notes below have been written to give you some more detailed information about how the tour runs, what to expect, and how to prepare for your holiday. We recommend downloading an up to date copy of these shortly before you travel in case of any changes.

Expand all Close all


  1. Accommodation

Our tours in Greece use a range of hotels mainly at the local 4-star level with some more boutique style properties or deluxe guesthouses also used where possible, especially on the Greek Islands. Please check the Accommodation section for more information on the normal accommodation used on this tour. This list is given as a guide though and hotels may change from time to time to others of a similar standard. If you have specific requests for individual hotels, please contact us about a private/tailor-made tour.

We regularly inspect all the hotels we use to ensure that the service you receive is as close as possible to your expectations. Please check your hotel room when you first arrive (hot water, cleanliness etc.), as our rep will be available for a short time to help in case of any problems.

We will contact you with your arrival hotel details normally a couple of weeks before departure.

Check-in Times: Official hotel check-in times in Greece are between 14.00 and 15.00. However, we do always try to ensure that if you arrive early, you can check into your room as soon as possible. We can nearly always get you into your hotel rooms by midday, but please understand that it is out of our control if the hotel is full and it takes a little longer. You will have full use of the hotel facilities while you wait if there is a short delay.

Greek Islands: The winter season on the Greek islands (November to March on Santorini, October to April on quieter islands) is very quiet, with many hotels closing completely. When necessary we therefore book alternatives that we feel provide a good experience suitable to the season. This generally means we aim more for smaller boutique style hotels and guesthouses that have a better location, being much closer to the shops and restaurants that are still open, rather than larger more properties further out that may have swimming pools and more space (which would not generally be used in winter anyway due to the cool weather, even were they to remain open).

Shoestring tours:  On our shoestring tours hotel upgrade options may be available and due to the potential larger group sizes sometimes more than one hotel may be used in each location. This may mean that more than one hotel pick up and drop off is required at the start and end of each day. If necessary, these are timed so that the overall sightseeing time planned for the day is not affected.

Please check the Single Room Supplement option for details on room sharing options and charges for solo travellers on this tour.

  2. Transport

Our Greece tours use a mix of air conditioned minivans, minibuses and coaches depending on the size of the group.

Ferry journeys to the Greek islands are booked in advance and approximate timings are given in our tour itineraries or on request. These are subject to change however, and any tour that visits the islands is subject to adjustments and amendments based on the available ferry schedules. While it does not happen often, sometimes ferry schedules are changed without notice and ferries may also be cancelled completely due to poor weather conditions. In this event the program may need to be adjusted and you may end up spending more or less time in one location than originally planned. This is the nature of travel between the islands and we thank you for your patience and understanding in the rare event of this occurring.

Where internal flights are used these will be detailed in the itinerary and fares will be included in your tour price unless otherwise specificed.


  3. Transfers

Our tours in Greece include your arrival and departure airport-hotel transfers and all other transfers.

Your airport transfers are only included on the first and last day of the set tour itinerary, plus on any additional days if you book your hotel room with us. If you make your own arrangements for additional accommodation at either the beginning or the end of the tour then you will need to arrange your own airport transfers on these days.
