Globus Greek Escape plus 3-night Iconic Cruise(KGKX)

11 Day Tour from Athens to Athens 
You’ve dreamed of the sparkling blue waters of the Aegean Sea and the white houses of the Greek Islands. Now you can have both with a guided tour of Greece with a Greek Island cruise. 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 cooking demonstration where you learn to make traditional tzatziki; take 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.

Your Mediterranean vacation continues with a 3-night Greek cruise on the Aegean Sea! Sail from Athens aboard a Celestyal Cruise ship to dock on the island of Syros. Enjoy a walking tour of the island built on two hills. Next, you’ll sail towards the shores of Turkey to visit Kusadasi and the ancient excavations of Ephesus. Sail, weather permitting, to the panoramic and volcanic island of Santorini—“The Black Pearl of the Aegean.” Relax while basking in the beauty of the sea as you return to Athens. From the picturesque fishing villages to ancient historic sights and sailing the Aegean Sea, this Greek cruise and tour vacation has it all!
