Day 1: Athens

Take a beat to get settled in after the long flight, and we’ll meet up in the evening for a group dinner. 

Meals: D
Hotel: New Hotel

Day 2: Athens to Santorini

After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll check-out, store our luggage at the hotel, and begin our morning with a Goddess-Inspired Tour of the Acropolis + Museum.

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Acropolis and the emblematic new Acropolis Museum in the company of an excellent guide. Together with our expert guide, we’ll explore ancient stories, trying to understand the people and the society that constructed them.

After the Acropolis tour, we’ll head over to the new Acropolis Museum. Here, travel back in time and become an ancient Athenian family for a day. The Acropolis Museum becomes your home, your battlefield, your workplace, the stage on which your everyday life and customs unravel.

In this special tour, focus is given to the women of Greek antiquity and their role in society (and in history books). What were the social, political, legal, and economic rights of women in Classical Greece? Everyone remembers the great Pericles that led Athens to its Golden Age. But what about his wife, Aspasia? Discover the famous real and mythical women of Greece’s past.

After the tour, we’ll have time for lunch in Athens before catching a late afternoon flight to beautiful Santorini. 

Private transfer to the hotel and overnight in Santorini. Dinner is on your own tonight, but the hotel has a lovely restaurant on-site, and there are many other options nearby!

Day 3: Santorini + Cooking Class at a Local Wine Estate

Wake up refreshed and enjoy a leisurely morning at our luxurious, cliffside hotel. Grab breakfast and chill poolside while taking in stunning views of the deep blue Aegean Sea and the spectacular Caldera gulf.  

This afternoon, we’ll head to a local wine estate for an early-afternoon wine tasting and cooking class. You’ll prepare an authentic Santorinian feast, beginning with a local salad of cherry tomatoes, katsouni (an indigenous cucumber), and fresh goat cheese and onions. Continue with “tomatokeftedes” (fresh tomato fritters), fava split pea puree – a locally renowned dish, and pork filet in vinsanto wine sauce… all in a picture-perfect vineyard at one of Santorini’s quaint wine estates. The picturesque verandas and the restaurant’s main area are the ideal place to savor your delicious meal and flawlessly pair it with the volcanic wines of the estate. A truly authentic and unforgettable experience.

Afterwards you can rest back at the hotel, or choose to take a short walk into the idyllic Oia village to check out its charming shops and restaurants. Oia is known for its picturesque architecture, stone + white-washed atmosphere, and its brilliant sunsets.

Day 4: Santorini + Sunset Catamaran Cruise

Today you’ll have the morning at your leisure. After breakfast by the pool, you can choose to do yoga with the group, book a hike or horseback-ride with the hotel (additional $), or do a little shopping in Oia village.

In the early afternoon we’ll set sail on a private sunset catamaran cruise. 

All aboard, as you embark on an unforgettable journey around the Caldera, take in the views of the ancient island of Thira (today also known as Santorini). Our journey begins from Oia and the picturesque Ammoudi bay. Our first stop is in Thirassia island for a refreshing swim and snorkeling. Afterward, we’ll continue towards the volcano and the Hot Springs. We will have the chance to sail close to the impressive Black Rock of the Indian, the White Beach, and Red Beach. As you sail along the stunning coastline, you can’t help but be charmed by the unique view of the Caldera and the spectacular colors of the most famous sunset. As the night falls, enjoy an open bar with local wines and a scrumptious dinner served on board.

Overnight back at the hotel.

Day 6: Crete + Women’s Village Co-op + Agios Nikolaos

After breakfast at the resort, we’ll head out for a full-day experience in Crete.

Our morning departure starts with a trip to the stunning scenic village of Kritsa, built amphitheatrically into the hills. In addition to its charming appeal, this village is known for its strong women and a famous Greek heroine named Kritsotopoula who fought off Turkish invaders.

Here, we’ll visit a local female boutique owner who will share some information on clothing and jewelry from local Greek designers with an opportunity to shop and browse the village. We’ll also be able to take part in a weaving workshop and visit the nature museum, as well.

After a shared meal with the local women’s cooperative, we’ll continue on to Agios Nikolaos itself for a lovely lunch overlooking the lake and a shopping opportunity at some of our favorite local shops that sell Greek skin-care, apparel, and accessories.

After a long day out, we’ll head back to the hotel to rest.
