Greece Tour Holidays
With history dating back four millennia, stretches of sun-kissed coastline lapped by the sparkling Aegean Sea, white-washed villages and olive groves, lush forests and mountainous interior and glittering islands, Greece is simply sublime.
We explore the best of the Greek Islands - from the pastel-coloured houses of Symi and the ancient history of Rhodes, to watching the sun set over Santorini’s infamous blue domed roofs. We’ll marvel at views across crystal-clear waters and step back in time to discover past civilisations. Stand atop the Acropolis and look out over Athens, as well as visit Olympia, the home to the original Olympic Games.
A Greek tour wouldn’t be complete without staying in the city of Athens. Cosmopolitan cool sits alongside ancient ruins. We’ll visit the awe-inspiring Acropolis, where the temple city was constructed in 5BC, and learn about its fascinating history. We’ll admire magnificent views across the city, as well as wander the Old Town of Plaka nearby and perhaps sit in the many outdoor cafes to people watch and enjoy a cool drink.
Our trips to Greece combine all of the above and so much more. From the simple pleasure of eating an authentic Greek salad and enjoying warm sea breezes, to uncovering a treasure trove of cultural riches, Greece is a destination full of wonder.View all holidays to Greece

Mykonos & Delos
One of the smaller of the Cyclades islands, Mykonos is known for its sandy beaches, whitewashed windmills, reliable sunny climate and cosmopolitan nightlife. The old town is filled with boutiques and little cafes. The 1989 movie Shirley Valentine was filmed here, and the island has long been popular with British visitors. The nearby island of Delos is one of the most important archaeological and mythological sites in Greece, said to be the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. Delos was a holy sanctuary and political centre, and the remains of several temples can still be seen today.
The Ionian island of Corfu, lying off the west coast of Greece, has long been one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations. It was occupied for more than 500 years by the Venetians, and came under British rule in the 19th century, and the influence of both can still be seen in the architecture of the UNESCO-listed Old Town and the local cuisine. The Venetian Old Fortress and the villa of Mon Repos, once the summer residence of the British governors, and birthplace of the Duke of Edinburgh, are among the highlights.
The largest, and most southerly, of the Greek Islands, Crete beguiles visitors with its soft, sandy beaches lapped by the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, its craggy mountains, awe-inspiring gorges and fertile plains where orange, lemon and olive groves grow in profusion. Crete was the legendary birthplace of Zeus, king of the Greek gods and home to the Minoans, Europe’s oldest and most mysterious civilization, who had their capital at Knossos.
The island of Rhodes is another popular island destination. The legendary Colossus, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, may no longer stand astride the harbour, but the medieval old town remains largely intact, and the Palace of the Grand Master, originally built by the Knights of St John in the 14th century, is not to be missed. Learn about the island’s rich history in the Archaeology Museum or relax on the nearby beaches.
