Athens Special Offer
A new opportunity, staying centrally, revealing the Acropolis & Parthenon frieze & exploring the classic sites & rewarding museums of the capital of modern and ancient Greece ‘whilst the crowds are away
For such a small country, Greece has played a large part in our collective history. Explore the birthplace of democracy and the foundations of life as we know it, choose to weave effortlessly between the beautiful Greek islands with our coastal cruises or take luxury land tours visiting the ruins of one of history’s most advanced civilisations.
With its evocative cultural heritage, complex history and cuisine, a visit to Greece is sure to awaken your senses. The whole country is bursting with historical sites and ancient monuments. From the Acropolis in Athens, which was created to celebrate the city’s rise to the zenith of its power, to the Greco-Roman ruins on the island of Delos and the medieval UNESCO World Heritage site of Rhodes Town; explore this glorious country on one of our many exciting and cultural tours. There is so much to unearth in this momentous land.
There are 56 islands of the Cyclades in the southern Aegean Sea, offering you the opportunity for both relaxation and exploration. Sit back and soak up the picturesque scenes of largely uninhabited Mediterranean landscapes peppered with dazzling white houses, twisting, cobbled alleyways, blue-domed churches, hilltop windmills, and volcanic cliffs above black sandy beach.
Thanks to its warm, Mediterranean climate, you can enjoy Greece escorted tours for the majority of the year. We don’t travel at the height of the summer months, as some areas of the country can reach a stifling 40°C. If you struggle with the heat, we recommend a trip in September and even as late as October when the heat is gentler and the crowds have declined. Coastal cruises and tours in the north of Greece are blessed by a cooling evening breeze and our travel consultants can advise on when is the best time to visit Greece.
Whether you’re longing to explore the secret locations of Alexander the Great and the Gods of Olympus or visit the stunning Island of Rhodes, our Greece tours mean you can enjoy all the highlights of this fascinating and beautiful country.
Our Greece escorted tours can be enjoyed with a smaller group of like-minded travellers as well as simply with an experienced tour guide. This allows for a more personalised experience where you can learn everything you’d like to know about this magnificent country. Your expert guide will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the local culture, cuisine and more on one of our Greece Holidays.

Weather & Climate
Greece has a warm Mediterranean climate. In summer, dry hot days are often relieved by stiff evening breezes, especially in the north, on the islands and in coastal areas.
When to go
Athens can be stiflingly hot, with temperatures occasionally exceeding 40°C (104°F) in July. Winters are mild in the south but much colder in the mountainous north, where it is not uncommon to see snow and temperatures plummeting to well below zero. November to March is the rainy season, most notably on the Ionian islands.
