WHAT YOU GET
12 nights accommodation
6 nights in Hotel, 6 nights in Yacht
On the mainland, sleep twin or triple-share in charming hotels set in handy locations in the heart of each city we visit. Then it's fun and frolics aplenty on board Contiki's very own traditional sailing yacht, where for 7 nights at sea you'll be tucked into cosy twin-share cabins. Those who want their own space (or if their snoring demands as such) can upgrade to a single room for a wee bit extra.
12 included Meals
10 Breakfast, 2 Dinner
We'll be keeping you well-fed with breakfast every morning, and we'll treat you to two dinners as well. The rest of your daily menu is up to you. Sample cinnamon-infused moussaka, salty slabs of halloumi, and fresh salads crumbled with feta - not to mention fresh catch of the day - as we sail the Mediterranean sea.
Team
Expert Trip Manager, Driver and Local Guides
A highly trained Trip Manager who brings your adventure to life. An expert driver who knows foreign roads better than Google Maps. Local Guides who make tourist traps a thing of the past. This is your team. Smart, friendly, fun, and integral to everything we do.
Transport
All transport included during the trip
When you're not zooming around Greece on a luxurious coach, you salty sea dogs will be spending balmy days and starry nights aboard an elegant yacht. It's equipped with everything you'll need, including hot water, powerpoints and the perfect spots for sunbaking.
Your group
Travel with other 18-35 year olds from around the world
Our trips are exclusively 18-35. This means you'll be travelling with people just like you, from all over the world- laughter and friendships always guaranteed.
Experiences
7 included, 2 optional that you can add
You'll get the best bits of each city and place we dock included as standard. Take in towering ruins in Athens, explore ancient worlds in Olympia & Delphi, snorkel the azure waters of secret bays and get stuck into some local ouzo in the quaint bars that dot Aegina.
Read more Read less
If you like exploring ancient worlds and getting caught in the sun, this is the trip for you. In Greece we take a step back in time and marvel at the remnants of ancient civilisation with 4 days of intensive exploring through the famous Acropolis, Agamemmnon's Palace, Deplhi, and the Unesco World Heritage site of Olympia. Then once you've eaten up all the history you can, we'll set sail for lemon-scented islands, remote beaches & getting away from the tourist trail. Depart from Athens and return sun-drenched and salt-soaked, full of the gloriousness of Greek food and endless summer days.

DAY 1 - Arrive Athens
Athens
Welcome to Athens, Greek adventurers! The clock starts now on uncovering this ancient country and all its quirks. We're calling it now, that this trip is THE ancient history lovers dream. Settle in to your hotel before catching up with the crew, where a traditional Athens affair is on the cards for those wanting to get straight down to the business of being cultural. On our optional dinner we'll head to the city's old town and dinner, traditional dancing as you feast your eyes (and stomach) with mouthwatering Greek tastes, under the watchful eye of the Acropolis to complete the scene. We can't think of a better way to get right into the Greek way of life.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the famous Plaka area
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
A Traditional Athens Affair
EUR 46.00
DAY 2 - Athens to Olympia via Corinth and Mycenae
Athens
Not a second of today will go to waste. Europe’s oldest city will unfold itself this morning as we take to the Parthenon and the Acropolis with the knowledge of a local, then explore the first modern Olympic Stadium from the 1896 Games. That's some really old Olympic vibes right there.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Learn about the birthplace of modern society on a guided tour of Athens and visit to the Acropolis
Corinth
Rugged mountains, cypress trees and citrus groves will pepper our pretty tour from Athens to Corinth, where we will stop to get a look at a man-made canal that squeezes ships through its tight cliffs in what seems like an impossible feat.
Mycenae
What was once a military hotspot is now a jaw-dropping archaeological site amidst the mountain ranges of Greece. Our Trip Manager will uncover the 4,000 year history of Mycenae and Agamemnon’s Palace in a tale of heroics, myths and curses.
Olympia
And so the historical uncoverings continue as we land in Olympia, the place where the Olympic Games were birthed, and what is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
DAY 3 - Olympia to Delphi
Olympia
Fun fact: the first Olympic Games was held in 776BC, let's just let that number sink in for a moment...Wow. Today our Local Guide will show us all the important sites of those games, giving you the chance to sit in the 45,000 seat stadium where it actually first took place. If that's not a spine-tingling moment, we don't know what is. We'll wrap it up at the Temple of Hera (Queen of the Greek Gods), and place where the Olympic flame is lit every four years. We'll also visit the ruins of Zeus' temple before we head off on our journey, where you'll be sure to feel the vibes of one of the most well known Greek gods.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Guided tour including Olympic Stadium and Temples of Hera and Zeus
Delphi
The sacred lands of Delphi will be ours this afternoon, again allowing us the chance to uncover world history right here in Greece. Despite being a place of monumental importance, it happens to have a cute little bar scene, and is a great place to sample the national drink of ouzo.
DAY 4 - Delphi to Athens
Delphi
Through the limestone columns of the Sanctuary of Apollo, we continue tapping into what was once the centre of the universe for Ancient Greeks. The remains of this Doric style building stands tall with it's remaining 6 (out of an original 15) pillars, and is the perfect spot to absorb the last bit of beauty that is the slopes of Mt. Parnassus before we jump on the trail back to Athens.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Guided tour of Delphi including the Temple of Apollo
Athens
Well there you have it, the true scope of mainland Greece's magnificence filed neatly into four incredible days. Make sure you get a good night's sleep tonight, cos this party ain't over yet. Tomorrow we set our sights seaward. Those islands aren't going to sail themselves!
DAY 5 - Athens
Athens
This morning we'll gather round in the Greek capital with a free day for you to explore sites of ancient Athens, before we get ready to set sail & conquer the Mediterranean. How about a hike up to the Acropolis, and snap a pic of the Parthenon? Or get a glimpse of the Golden Mask of King Agamemnon at the National Archaeology Museum, or stop for a spot of lunch at the Plaka?
DAY 6 - Athens to Perdika
Athens

This morning we'll gather round in the Greek capital ready to board our yacht, set sail & conquer the Mediterranean. Our yacht's first stop will be the unspoiled fishing village of Perdika, where we'll be introduced to the slow life & succulent seafood of the isles. 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. 

DAY 7 - 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. 

DAY 8 - 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. 

DAY 9 - 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
DAY 10 - 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. 

DAY 11 - 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. 

DAY 12 - 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

DAY 13 - 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...

Worth it for what you get! On land are some amazing historical sites and great stops on the way :) The cruise was the best part with unlimited free alcohol (not top shelf) and we saw some wonderful islands. The cruise itself was the most relaxing part of the trip and the unlimited alcohol and food contributed as well as getting to relax in the pool or sun while cruising.

The cruise and trip manager were awesome! But false advertising on part of Contiki for going to Ios when we were never destined to go there. This is misrepresentation and I want compensation as I would have never booked this particular cruise if I had known it wasn't going to Ios. The Spotlight group was far too big to do tours around the museums and historical sights with.

I did the 4 day Spotlight on Greece tour. I like the tour itself. Very informative and you learn a lot about the culture. I specifically chose this tour for the learning experience. It was a bit annoying that it seems this tour is advertise differently in the US and Australia. The Americans went for the learning experience and the Australians went for partying. They needed to be told multiple times to stop talking or stop being rude to our local guides when we were on our tours.
