Extend your Stay
Our award-winning tours explore regions, coastlines and island archipelagos that are often far removed from the bustling and lively capital cities our international travellers fly into. The very names of these cities are redolent of modern culture, ancient history, archaeology, good food, excellent local wine and so much more besides. If travelling to Greece for the first time, how could you not be tempted to pay even a brief visit to Athens, home of the famous Acropolis, and the city where democracy was born and the dramatic arts invented? What of Rome? Istanbul, Dublin, London or Zagreb?
Time and again, our guests have asked us for recommendations, assistance, ideas and suggestions for what they can do when travelling by themselves in these cities. We know these capitals inside out, and several of our key staff members live and work in them. Whether it is to suggest an itinerary to first-time visitors, or to find something fascinating and new for people who have visited that city time and again, we have never failed to find exactly what they were looking for. On occasion we have even organised mini-tours, booking hotels, providing transport and sending our guides to lead a bespoke itinerary. With the great depth of knowledge that we have, and the enthusiastic desire of our guests to explore further with our experts, to see and experience the sites that other visitors do not, we decided that it was time to offer these possibilities to all of our travellers.
To that end we have created two tours that offer you the chance to extend your travels before your cruise or land tour begins. If you have never travelled to Athens before, or if you have been multiple times, we have the perfect itinerary for you. Of course, if you see something that you want to change, or would prefer to include instead, or if you have less or more time in which to travel, please just let us know and we will craft an itinerary just for you.
