Thanks to its warm, Mediterranean climate, you can enjoy Greece tours for most 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 the spring months or later in September or October when the heat is gentler, and the crowds have declined. Coastal cruises and northern Greece tours are often blessed by a cooling evening breeze making for pleasant exploration. Whether you’re planning on booking mainland Greece tours or a trip to the islands, our personal travel experts can advise on when is the best time to visit.
Our Greece tours depart from the UK and can be enjoyed with a small group of like-minded travellers and 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 during our Greece group tours.
Whether you’re looking to travel solo, as a couple, or with a group of friends, our escorted tours to Greece will open your eyes to the wonderous architecture, cuisine, and culture this beautiful country has to offer.
