Luxury Greece Tours

Enjoy the best of Greece with a private trip designed just for you

Ancient cities, the sparkling Aegean and a history like no other

Greece is a land of legends, mythological creatures and gods and goddesses. But it is also a county that lives very much in the present, its inhabitants filled with a lust for life who make the very most of this spectacularly beautiful place.

Exploring the country’s ancient roots is a highlight of any trip. Almost every city, town and village has a link to the past and the country’s formidable collection of historic sites span four millennia. Greece found itself under the rule of several empires, all of which have left their mark. The country is a rich tapestry of ancient temples, Venetian forts and Byzantine monasteries with plenty of other wonders stitched in between.

Greece is split into thee main geographical regions: the mainland, the Peloponnese peninsula and the country’s 6,000 beautiful islands. Each has its own distinct identity and offers something unique.

Of all the cities, Athens is arguably the master of juggling the old and the new. The mighty Acropolis watches over the city, keeping a protective eye on the Athenians who like to eat, drink and party while weaving their way through the city’s ancient sites.

With 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites to its name, Greece has every right to be proud of its heritage. Those with a love for mythical tales will want to make a beeline for the Peloponnese with its Homeric palaces, Greek amphitheatres and ruined Byzantine cities. You’ll also find yourself lured to the site of Delphi where according to mythology, it was here that the two eagles sent by Zeus to find the centre of the world met.

It’s not all about archeology, however, and nature lovers will not be left disappointed. Greece is one of the most mountainous countries in Europe and the lush forests and rivers of Epirus, Thessaly and Thrace are ripe for exploring.

One look at a map and you’ll see that Greece is a country eager to dip its toes into the ocean. With 16,000km of coastline and a vast collection of islands scattered throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas, it is famous the world over for its pristine beaches. Let yourself be lured by the white sand and sparkling water, discovering quiet coves, quaint harbours and bustling ports along the way.

When to go

The best time to visit Greece is either side of the peak months of July and August, which see soaring temperatures and crowds. A trip in June or September will still see glorious weather, only this time twinned with a little more exclusivity. If you can only travel during peak season, we recommend booking well in advance or to explore some lesser-visited corners of the country and its islands.

October can enjoy something of an Indian summer and some wonderful light, while December to March are the coldest, with snow in the mountains, though some winter sun can be found in Crete. April is a little uncertain but wonderfully green, warming up somewhat by May, with some of the southern islands particularly pleasant at this time of year.
