You’ve seen photos of the ancient Acropolis in Athens, dating back to the 5th century BC-now’s your chance to see it in person on this escorted Greek vacation. You’ve watched the Olympics on TV-now’s your chance to walk among the ruins in Olympia, where the Olympics began in 776 BC. You’ve eaten at Greek restaurants-now’s your chance to enjoy an authentic Greek cooking demonstration, where you’ll learn how to make the traditional Greek tzatziki appetizer. All this and more awaits you on this Greek Escape.

History comes alive on your guided visits to many of Greece’s ancient sites. In addition to the Acropolis and Olympia, you’ll also visit the ruins in Mycenae, dating from 1,350 to 1,200 BC and described in Homer’s epic poem, “The Iliad.” Also see the amazingly well-preserved, 2,300-year-old open-air theater in Epidaurus. In ancient Greece, people traveled to Delphi to seek the wisdom of the Oracle. Learn about the Oracle, tour the excavations, and visit the Archaeological Museum. To add to your Greek experience enjoy a sirtaki dance lesson and try a glass of Ouzo. Plus, you’ll be accompanied by an expert Tour Director who will bring this country to life by sharing its history, stories, and insider secrets. From the picturesque fishing villages to ancient historic sights, the Greek Escape has it all!
