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 36.00
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
See the Corinth Canal
See the Acronafplion citadel at Nafplion
Guided tour of Mycenae, including the Palace of Agamemnon
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 Greece's magnificence filed neatly into four incredible days. Walk away with a wealth of new knowledge and a new posse of friends, eager to get involved in yet another Contiki adventure.
DAY 5 - Athens
Athens

With two full days in Athens you have heaps of free time to uncover all the unique sides of this ancient city. From the urban hustle and bustle, the magnificent Acropolis, traditional tavernas, street art and tangible political energy. Tick off all the antiquities, shop the boutiques and markets or eat your way through the best souvlaki, tzatziki and dolmades you can get your hands on.

DAY 6 - Athens
Athens
With two free days here use your free time this to explore more of this open-air museum. You could honour the birthplace of drama by climbing around the massive Theatre of Dionysus or get the background on Ancient Greece at the National Archaeological Museum. Otherwise experience Athens’ urban heart, take off into the streets and find a hole-in-the-wall food joint, where you can try the famous souvlaki. You could head back to the Plaka area or pick up some quirky souvenirs at the Athens flea markets. You’ll also be transferred to meet your fellow travellers on the Greek Island Hopping tour.
DAY 7 - Athens to Mykonos
Athens

See, just like we told you. Our time in Athens was amazing and well worth delaying our island time for. But delay it further? We shall not...

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

Let's do this! 3 nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love. 

DAY 8 - Mykonos
Mykonos

Here we are on yet another day when it feels completely fabulous to be alive. You're still in Mykonos baby! And the day is yours to soak up sunshine and play in the sea.

DAY 10 - Mykonos to Santorini
Mykonos

This morning, let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only have the time and money to visit just one Greek Island. Those poor unfortunate souls...

Santorini

Saddle up! We're taking to the seas again, this time in search of the island of Santorini. It's finally your turn to be the one lulling about the white-washed blue dome churches looking like a sultry summer babe.  Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Ah, life.

Overnight: Okeanis Beach Hotel

DAY 11 - Santorini
Santorini
Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini will not explore itself. Take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, and roam the streets of Fira. Just remember to plan your day around the excursion to the iconic sunset of Oia - this is not an optional you're going to want to miss.
 
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the main town of Fira
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Sunset in Oia
EUR 28.00
Santorini Highlights & Volcano Cruise
EUR 50.00
DAY 12 - Santorini
Santorini

The beautiful thing about having two full days on the one island is you have time to both relax and explore. Whatever you didn't do yesterday is still up for grabs today. If you feel like you've crammed it all in already, just head to the black or red sand beaches and spend another glorious day ocean-side. Ain't life grand? 

Overnight: Okeanis Beach Hotel

DAY 13 - Santorini to Ios
Santorini

Say your so longs to Santorini this morning. We have one last Greek Island to hop to, and we promise she's magnificent.

Ios

A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery. But thankfully, there will be no change in the hours spent ocean side and good times had.

  Overnight: Far Out Ios

DAY 14 - Ios
Ios

Another day, another chance to soak up the Greek sun and frolic in the sand without a care in the world. Get some adrenalin in with some watersports, or if you haven't done so already, go explore the pretty town and down a hearty meal at a local cafe. You're going to need the fuel if you want to hang out in the party scene of Hora until the break of dawn.  

 Overnight: Far Out Ios

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Sailing Spectacular Ios
EUR 43.00
DAY 15 - Ios
Ios

Don’t underestimate the power of this village. When the sun sets, this place really comes to life. As such, we suggest a day out on the water getting salty on a boat trip, or a full day of pool hangs and beach time so you're all sun-kissed and feeling floaty by the time the night rolls in. 

 Overnight: Far Out Ios

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Ios town
DAY 16 - Ios to Athens
Ios

While choking back the tears and waving miserably at the dreamy islands of Greece, try to think positive thoughts: we have a boat ride to enjoy this morning, as well as one more night together in the city of Athens. 

Athens

One last dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together as the Greece loving squad that we are. 

 Overnight: Poseidon Hotel

DAY 17 - Depart Athens
Athens

Hugs, tears, and a final batch of reminiscing; it's astounding how close a group can get in just two short weeks. Nothing says bonding quite like the good life. The Croatia Island Hopper is probably the only way to really ease the pain of this goodbye. #NOREGRETS

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.
