TESTIMONIALS

This tour was indeed magical for me. I had never be fore been to Turkey but I quickly fell in love with the country. The ancient sites, the warm, clear, blue water of the Mediterranean sea , cruising along the beautiful Lycian coast and sharing wonderful, healthy Turkish meals with a great group of new friends made this trip truly memorable - a once in a lifetime experience. The guides and crew spared nothing and words cannot express my heart felt appreciation for all that you did to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. Thank you !

I loved the ancient sites, the Turkish coastline and the wonderful swimming.

The gulet cruise was magical...your itinerary made me fall in love with Turkey, with the ancient world, with the land in and around the Mediterranean Sea, and for that I am eternally grateful.

Ed Prosser, London, UK

Excellent itinerary, beautiful anchorages… So enjoyed the combination of idyllic leisure with a learning experience…My two weeks on the gulet were some of the happiest in my long generally happy life. It was one of the most comfortable sailing experiences I’ve had. A flawless operation. Your enthusiasm, imagination and knowledge made the experience extraordinary. Thanks for a truly amazing experience. I cannot thank you enough. 
Andrea Levine, New York, USA

We could not have asked for anything more. It was more than a wonderful vacation, you made it a true adventure. We travelled 2500 years in a fortnight, saw and experienced things most people could never even imagine. Your enthusiasm, passion and organizational skills made the whole time a true holiday. Thank you so much.
Greg Sturgess, Delta, BC, Canada

“We planned this vacation as a ‘once in a life time’ trip. Who were we kidding? - We certainly cannot limit ourselves to only once in our life! The food, the locations, the history, the people we met, the way we were catered for.... Ready to start planning for a ‘twice in a life time’ trip..... Thanks for a wonderful time! ”
Karen Remhoff & Ken Maher, NJ, USA

“This was the best vacation of my life (and I haven‘t been the least bit deprived!). I learned more in these two weeks in Turkey than in any year in college with the best professors, and I absorbed it in a way that will continue to inform my understanding of the world for the rest of my life.”
Ann Senechal, Boston, USA

Greece Tours and Gulet Holidays

For a full list of our tours in Greece with dates and prices, please scroll down.

Greece is a land irrevocably connected in our imagination with the glories of the ancient world: the magnificent temples of Delphi and Olympia; the military might of Athens and Sparta; the land that gave birth to democracy, philosophy, theatre, beautiful art and history. It lives up to this billing, but goes far beyond: Greece is a land of deep blue seas; long, sandy beaches; and strings of beautiful islands. It has a fabulous cuisine, with the emphasis firmly placed on fresh produce simply cooked, best sampled in a family run taverna. From crystal waters to delicious food, golden sunshine to abundant antiquities, Greece has all the ingredients for a wonderful cultural holiday. Discover this amazing country on one of our expert-led Greece tours.

“The sites were lovely, the museums fantastic, the food was outstanding and Michael and Heinrich were excellent guides”
Jim Cleary, London, UK

Explore Athens
Athens, the capital of Greece, is a magnificent place to begin exploring the country and sample the juxtaposition of old and new. Its modern cityscape, filled with lively tavernas, is lorded over by the brooding mass of the Acropolis, crowned by the Parthenon. Other equally splendid ruins rear up throughout the fabric of the city centre and are well worth investigating. Discover this crucible of history on our expert-led Athens tour.

“Heinrich our tour guide was supremely competent in every way, interesting and interested, charming and a true gentleman. A pleasure to observe…”
Patricia Kartiganer, Boston, USA

Cruise the Greek Islands
The strategic location of the Dodecanese and Cyclades, between the Greek and Turkish mainlands, has endowed them with a series of first-rate archaeological sites and museums. Many of the islands are crowned by magnificent Crusader castles or fortifications dating back to ancient Greek or Byzantine times. Hidden in their interior, away from the gaze of pirates, lies a wealth of holy sites: ancient shrines, medieval monasteries and even Ottoman mosques. These historical riches are embellished by the natural wonders that abound in these islands: barely-active volcanoes, natural saunas, rugged mountains, beautiful coves and, in the spring, abundant wild-flowers. Would you like to experience one of our gulet cruises in Greece? Find out more.

The most successful, enjoyable and very best small group tour that I have taken primarily due to the fact that you had Heinrich as tour leader AND a local Greek tour guide Nota. They both worked seamlessly to ensure the success of this tour.

“What can I say? An amazing trip… The best that either of us have done with any company. Apart from the fact that Crete is amazing, Heinrich and the local guide did a superb job… Informative, organised, and we weren’t warned about their sense of humour! Both of them… Hysterical.”
Ian Parmenter, WA, Australia
