Notes

Please Note:
1. This tour is 'On Request'. That means that we need to confirm availability before confirming the booking.
2. This itinerary is subject to change dependant on Greek ferry schedules. Although it is rare, occasionally ferry schedules are changed without notice, and sometimes a scheduled ferry departure may be cancelled due to weather conditions. If this occurs the program may need to be adjusted slightly, and at times it may mean you will spend less or more place in one location than originally planned for. This is the nature of Greek Island travel, and we thank you for your understanding in the rare event that something like this occurs.
3. In 2019 we have made some improvements to the 2018 itinerary. 1. Day 3 will stay in Nafplion instead Olympia. It will visit Olympia the following day. 2. Day 5 it will travel to Kalambaka and visit the Meteora hilltop monasteries, a UNESCO Heritage site, the following day. 3. The itinerary has 1 extra day making it a a 7 day itinerary.
4. Instead of travelling between Athens and Santorini by ferry, an optional flight between Santorini and Athens is available at extra cost. Please contact with us for a quote.
5. Single travellers are obliged to pay Single Supplement and will have the hotel room to themselves.
6. This is a small group tour with a minimum of 6 and a maximum group size of 20.
7. The Hellenic National Tourism Organization has decided on a residence fee to be applied on hotel accommodation from 01/01/2018.
The fees applied will be EUR 1.50 for 3* hotels, EUR 3.00 for 4* hotels and EUR 4.00 for 5* hotels, per room, per night and are not included in the tour price.

Accommodation

This is intended to give an idea of the type of accommodation that may be expected. The actual hotels used for any given tour may change due to many reasons such as group size, availability, time of year, hotel standard has dropped or simply we found a better hotel. We update the website immediately if and when any changes take place. If and when we do change hotels it will be to a hotel of equal or higher standard and will be at no extra cost.

Where more than one hotel is shown for a given an overnight stop this means that one of those hotels will be used.
