Greece Travel GuideSome information and tips about Greece

Top Things to See & Do in Greece

There are few places in the world that can rival Greece in history, culture, and natural beauty. To give you a glimpse of what Greece has to offer, our Greece travel specialists have put together the best places to visit on a luxury tour of their beautiful country.


Athens, Greece


Many of our luxury tours of Greece begin in Athens, the most majestic capital of Greece.

Acropolis, the world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, is at the top of the list of places to see in Athens. The Parthenon, the temple sitting atop the Acropolis hill, is its crown jewel.

Our luxury tours in Greece will allow you to visit the Parthenon and Acropolis with your licensed private guide, enriching your knowledge of ancient Greece.

After your private tour of the Acropolis, relax in one of the terrace bars of Athens, admiring the gorgeous city views while you sip on your aperitif of choice.

Discovery of Athens is incomplete without experiencing some local culinary delights. Indulge in delicious Greek food in the vibrant Plaka neighborhood right down the Acropolis hill or the upscale Kolonaki neighborhood.



Santorini, Greece


Santorini is arguably the most popular of the Greek Islands, with its white-washed houses perched on dramatic cliffs and its stunning sunsets. This Greek island is abundant with fresh local delicacies and unique beaches. The black sands of Kamari beach with rustic straw umbrellas will welcome sunbathers and swimmers. A Sunset cruise on the Caldera is a memorable experience.

One of the best ways to experience the island is by delving into its wine and food culture, and we’re happy to show you the way. Follow our guide through ancient pathways, stopping to sample sumptuous Souvlaki and taking part in olive oil and wine tastings along the way.



Mykonos, Greece


Known as the “island of the winds,” Mykonos offers wonderful luxury resorts and an extremely fun party scene. If you prefer to include Mykonos in your luxury tour to Greece, you will get to see the famous windmills and white-washed churches of Mykonos.

Stroll down the picturesque Matogianni Street and stop by Alefkandra for lunch. We even organize a wine tasting on the beach, so you can sip and sunbathe the day away.

Luxury Greece tours should be indulgent, so why not rent a private yacht if you feel so inclined?


Corfu is a beautiful island located in the Ionian Sea. The island’s beautiful beaches, such as Paleokastritsa and Agios Gordios, along with its charming villages and historic sites, have made it famous.


Zakynthos, also known as Zante, is a beautiful island located in the Ionian Sea. The island boasts stunning beaches, including Navagio Beach and beautiful Blue Caves.


Crete is the largest Greek island and is known for its beautiful beaches, such as Elafonisi and Balos Beach. The island is also home to several historic sites, such as the Palace of Knossos.



Paxos, Greece


Santorini and Mykonos are the best-known Greek Islands, but Greece has thousands of islands to choose from, each with its own character. Explore some of the other islands in our Best Greek Islands to Visit blog post.

Our Greece Specialists will be happy to recommend the ones that are best for you, depending on what you want to experience during your trip to Greece.

Best Time to Visit Greece

The busiest and hottest months are July and August, so if you’re sensitive to high temperatures or don’t enjoy crowds, May, June, or September might be better options.

The weather is still ideal during these times with balmy Mediterranean air. The summers tend to be dry and hot, while the mild winters bring rain and cooler temperatures of around 50ºF.

When planning your trip to Greece, keep in mind that some venues, particularly those on the Greek Islands, close during the winter due to a lack of tourists.

Required Clothing

Lightweight clothes (cotton is best) during summer months, including protection from the midday sun and sunglasses. Evenings, especially on the islands, require light sweaters. We advise wearing waterproofs during spring and fall. The winter months can make people feel quite cold, particularly on the northern mainland. Therefore, they will need to wear normal winter clothes.
