DAY 1 - Athens to Perdika
Athens

These islands aren't going to sail themselves! Board our yacht, meet your fellow sailors and get ready to drift out of Athens. You've heard it here first, this trip is made for those that love to chill, swim, eat and repeat while getting up on the water like a boss. All aboard, let's do this!

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Use of on-board gear like snorkels & goggles & stand-up paddle boards
Perdika

We kick things off tonight in Perdika Harbour, an un-spoilt fishing spot seeped in traditional Greek lifestyle. Make the use of our stand-up paddle boards and ocean gear, then watch the sun set over a dinner feast. 

Stay
Sailing
DAY 2 - Predika to Hydra
Perdika

From one paradise to another, we wave goodbye to Perdika and make our way to a pristine island nestled between the Saronic and Argolic Gulf. We will be making plenty of swim stops to keep things cool, so lather up the sunscreen and perch on deck as we relax into the good life. 

Hydra

Hollywood hangout Hydra is going to wow you with its natural beauty. A vehicle free destination, this is a great chance to stretch out those legs. Cathedrals, monasteries, fresh seafood, nightlife - don't expect  a moment of boredom. Find a local nightspot, grab some eats, and pull on those dancing shoes. 

Stay
Sailing
DAY 3 - Hydra to Plaka
Hydra

The yachting life will feel all very perfect & natural this morning as we anchor up yet again & cruise the Med in search of our next destination. 

Plaka

Plaka Leonidion calls us back to Greece's mainland for a day in which swimming in tranquil bays is high priority. This charming seaside town will make you wish you were of Greek heritage as you settle into life on deck once again, and work oh so hard on that magificent tan. Aaaaand, relax. 

Stay
Sailing
DAY 4 - Plaka to Spetses
Plaka
Plaka will leave us feeling all inspired by what the Greek coastline has on offer - so we'll stick to it! Making our way to Spetses little further in the bay.
Spetses
Stay
Sailing
DAY 5 - Spetses to Poros
Spetses

Kounoupi islet is ours this morning, known as a 'must stop' amongst the savvy yachting community. The relaxing summer vibes continue as we head to Dhokos, home to a 4500 year old shipwreck, offically the oldest in the world. 

Poros

So pretty with its pine trees and fresh growing lemons, Poros will provide the perfect setting for more beach time and sunset hangs up on deck or on land. Maybe check out a local taverna for lunch... or just keep making the most of that gorgeous yacht we have our hands on and the floaties and paddleboards on deck to keep non existent boredom at bay. 

Stay
Sailing
DAY 6 - Poros to Aegina
Poros

Historical artifacts and long coastlines are just around the corner at our final destination before we head back to Athens. So long Poros!  

Aegina

Apart from being jaw-droppingly beautiful and packed with history, this island is pretty as a picture, and offers all of the good things you've come accustomed to, like beach loungers, clear blue waters and local vibes that we know and love. What else do you need to know? Aegina knows how to throw a party. Which makes it the perfect spot for our final evening as posse on this trip. Our Captain will recommend a local spot to kick off this last night. 

Stay
Sailing
DAY 7 - Aegina to Athens
Aegina

Our final sea journey onboard the boat that we have come to know as home. From Aegina we set sail for Athens, perhaps with a little tear in our eyes. 

Athens

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened! That's what the insta quotes say, right? Meh, maybe you should just book another trip to ease the pain…#NOREGRETS

Stay
Sailing
DAY - Depart Athens
Athens
Back on Athenian shores where the adventure commenced 12 days ago, we'll say our farewells & wrap up the trip. Dry those salty tears, and make sure you swap deets to plan your next sunny escape soon...

I thoroughly enjoyed my time and would do this trip again. I'm giving 4 stars as I had a great time however my expectations were different to reality. What would have been good was perhaps a bit more information from the skippers about the islands, what to do and see etc., We really didn't know where we were or what we were doing, not that bad but would have been useful information to have rather than hearing second hand information from others and not knowing what was going on. Also my expectations about the boat were different to reality, it's by no means bad but quite basic and 7 days was enough with the bathroom situation and only having stale bread for breakfast provided. I'm trying not to be critical as despite these couple of things that could easily be fixed I had a blast! Great crew, beautiful location and lots of fun times!

This was a truly unforgettable experience! Every day was spent swimming in crystal clear water, soaking up the sun, or exploring quaint little island towns. The trip was made even better by the rest of the crew, and of course, our Skippers. Dimitris was an absolute legend! He did everything he could to make sure we had an awesome time, and was a very capable Captain. However, if you are expecting a luxury cruise, this is probably not the trip for you. The sailing boats are small, and it is very hot below deck in summer. We just took this as an extra incentive to head out and explore. Overall this was a great trip, one which I would highly recommend to anyone who wishes to get a more authentic Greek island experience.

Contiki's Greek Sailing was an exellent choice for a truly unique experience of the Greek islands. Though there are many yachting options out there for the Greek islands, I highly recommend this one to anyone interested in seeing some of the best Greece has to offer. Greek Sailing is an actual sail boat experience. Dont' be confused as some of the other trips are more of a cruiseline experience. I'm talking sails, skippers, swim stops, small marinas and beautiful, lesser-traveled islands/ports. Our group was about 24 people spread over 3 sailboats. All the skippers were amazing but George made our boat's experience excpetional. He worked tirelessly (and professionaly) to make sure we had a fantastic time - showing us great places to eat, interesting things to check out at each port, and good places to dance the night away into the early morning. Our particular sailboat actually broke down the first day which could have put a damper on the trip. But it turned out to be a hugely positive thing that made our experience even more memorable. Contiki replaced our original sailboat with an upgrade the next day, our particular boat took the extra time in port to really gel and become a little contiki family, and by the time we met up with the other two boats, we were in full party mode having the time of our lives. If you're laid back and enjoy a mix of relaxing time, food, exploring, and nightlife you can't go wrong with the Greek Sailing.

Personally I found the Greek Sailing trip to be an excellent experience, it was everything I anticipated and more- an absolutely delightful holiday that mixed relaxation and an authentic experience of sailing through Greece. However, I feel as though others on my trip were disappointed with the trip due to their own lack of research. This trip is not an island hopping experience and it is not a cruise, it is a sailing trip. Privacy is a luxury, you share a bathroom, you are in a small space with multiple strangers. Yes sometimes you can be uncomfortable, the weather will be unpredictable, you may feel unwell if you lack experience with boating and electrical/plumbing issues may happen- but generally these issues are completely out of anyone's control. My best advice for anyone thinking of this trip is if you want a holiday that allows you to have an authentic experience of embracing the Greek Mediterranean away from the tourists, that is relaxing but also fun and gives you ample amounts of freedom to explore the islands/towns- then this trip is for you! If this is not what you are looking for in a holiday maybe consider other trips with Contiki. Once again I thank Contiki and the skippers for organising such an excellent holiday!

i enjoyed the experience of the week and each island and town with amazing foods and views, i created some great friends that i am keeping in contact with. The part i was not happy about was the fact i paid for Greek SAILING not Greek motoring. and i know we could have sailed a bit more if we had planned it a bit better and yea it might have taken a bit longer but it would have been worth it to sail and not motor, and i know this because i sail and have more experience than the skippers. on this note i would recommend teaching the skippers a bit more sail control because in the half hour that we did sail all week the back edge of the sails were flapping and the skipper said it was fine there only cruising sails. i went to change the shape and he was against the fact i was going to make it better,this could also have been a bit of a language barrier by no fault of either of us he was a great guy just needed more training. another issue is that the boats are not well equipped for the temperatures of Greece one of the boats had fans in the rooms, ours did not, we ended up sleeping on deck to stay cooler and ended up getting eaten by mosquitoes. other than having to work on my holiday to make the boat go smoothly, i had a great time

I had an amazing week sailing the Greek islands. The trip was excellent value for money and I could not have asked for a better group to spend my week with. Special thanks to our amazing skipper, George, who consistently went above and beyond to make sure each and every one of us enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. He truly made this trip a special one for us. Thank you!

Amazing trip if you're looking for a low key, off the beaten path Greek experience. Every day we would have one swim stop and then dock for the night at around 2-3pm. I would have liked to stay longer at the swim stops because it was so hot, however it made sense to get to towns when we did to ensure we would have a spot to dock. The people, the places we visited and the restaurants recommended were all great. A few things could have been improved, like communication before the trip to know what to expect - I felt like details were hard to come by. Also, when we got to the marina on the first day, we had to wait a long time for our boat to be ready. The other groups got a "tour" of their boat and were taught how to use the toilets/showers, were given linens and towels, etc. None of that happened on our boat (the Smile) since we were delayed getting on. We did not receive towels for showers, so we all had to use our swim towels the entire trip. Our skipper, Niko, was awesome and very attentive to our group, however I felt that some of the other skippers were more focused on partying at night and didn't always have the best interest of the group in mind. Otherwise, the week was an incredible experience and I'm already ready to plan by next trip back!

For the price, the sleeping and showering accommodations were a bit rough. I understand that’s the nature of a sailboat but for the price, even a fan would’ve been helpful. Didn’t get much sleep because of the heat.
