White towns, classical ruins and miles of turquoise coast – welcome to one of the greatest nations there ever was.
The Greeks have always enjoyed the finer things in life, from the sophisticated art of the ancients, to the sumptuous dining of today. Find out where the pillars of democracy were first erected at ancient sites like the Acropolis. Let the country’s natural beauty inspire you at islands like Santorini, where mountains, cliffs and coasts form stunning views. Or cruise through the waves and enjoy the simple pleasures of seafood, wine and music. It’s the birthplace of western civilization as we know it, and modern Greece has aged beautifully.

Cruise the Hidden Gems of Greece, August 2018
I recommend this cruise strongly if you want to learn about Greece, her culture, and her people. Our tour leaders knew the places we were going to, and shared much wealth of knowledge about each destination. We even got to experience traditional Greek music, and learn traditional Greek dancing. The boat crew were fabulous - from the kitchen to the cabin staff, with a particular nod to the Captain (or Master) and his officers who made us feel comfortable, even if we were not experienced at sea. The destinations were amazing - going to local places I may never have seen by myself. I was sad it had to end. This has been my favourite holiday by far and would do it again in a heartbeat!

Highlights of Greece, June 2018
Peregrine's Highlights of Greece gave me a fairly extensive overview of the key archeological sites on mainland Greece in just a short time. I also truly enjoyed catching a glimpse of the picturesque Greek countryside and sampling some scrumptious Greek delicacies. I would highly recommend this trip!
