Get to know the real Greece.
And we mean the REAL Greece.
The places where Greeks like to eat. The secret coves that pirates chose as
their hideaways. The myths that were born on our land and have never left.
Our authentic experiences scratch deeper beneath the surface to take you closer to the heart of Greece. Expect the unexpected. Be ready to immerse yourself in a truly unique experience with local people, homegrown flavours, and stories passed down through the generations. You’ll leave with your own story to tell.
Experiences for just you and a few
Greece’s soul is warm and relaxed, so that’s exactly what our authentic experiences capture. They are small group excursions that invite you to linger longer.
We set aside a limited number of spaces so that you get a more personalised experience. It does mean that you need to book quickly to secure your space. Remember to reserve your spot at least two weeks before you sail.
Authentic themes to fire your imagination
When just a taste won’t do, our authentic excursions let you indulge. We take you off the tourist trail and to the local producers, where you explore the islands through your senses. Thyme infused honey? Give it a try. Silky custard pie? Go on then. The crispiest white wine from Santorini’s oldest winery. It would be rude not to! Savour the flavours and honour the people who keep Greece the wholesome place it is to this day.
Greek islands are alive with colour, smells, sights and sounds. As we weave through the hidden cobbled streets and alleys, the sensory experiences will only become more intense. Feel history between your fingertips as you mimic ancient craftsmanship. Listen to the music and slower pace of life high up in the hills. See how the experiences move you.
Venture off the well-trodden path and you’ll soon need equipment to help you explore. Thankfully, us Greeks don’t see that as a problem. Get kitted out with paddles, a snorkel mask, or hiking boots and you can unearth nature’s own stories. It will be just you and the purest blue waters, the wildflowers, and the ocean breeze.
Every step you take through ancient ruins gets you closer to what life was once like. But imagine what you’d learn if you were able to dig beneath the surface? That’s what our archaeologists are here to do. See the ancient sites through their eyes and learn about the true culture of the people who called them home thousands of years ago.
