Classical Greece shows Greece at its best: the beautiful white-washed Cycladic Islands of Santorini and Mykonos, Crete - the largest and southern-most Greek Island, and the Peloponnese with Monemvassia and Nafplion and their historical treasures. Add to these destinations the less known and quaint islands of Kythira, where you are likely to see turtles swim inside the port, and Hydra, a summer destination for the Athenians. Board the Variety Voyager for a week-long round-trip cruise!

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
