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.
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 guided tours of Greece mean you can enjoy all the highlights of this fascinating and beautiful country.
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.

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.
