There were lots of places on the boat where we could sit back and just enjoy the scenery or read a book or get together with the other passengers. The food was fabulous and wine was provided with dinner each night. Each day had a planned site visit for about three or four hours and there was plenty of time to swim and relax. lt was a fascinating trip for those who like to dig a little deeper than the generic guidebook, as the cruise does visit well known and remote archaeological sites. We enjoyed the company of others from around the world who seemed to have led interesting and varied lives.
An absolutely amazing 2 week journey of the archaeological history of the Peloponnese, including Sparta, ancient Olympia, Mycenae, the monastery of Agios Ioannis Prodromos built high into the cliffs of the Arcadia mountains, Monemvasia and many other UNESCO world heritage sights. The entire itinerary was so well planned and we were all so well cared for. I have already recommended this trip to several friends. Our tour guides were true experts and both warm, thoughtful and generous with their time, energy and immense knowledge.
