11 Day Greek Island Hopping Tour
Your 11 day Greek Island Hopping Tour starts in the capital of Greece, Athens – the gateway to the Greek Islands and a melting pot of culture, cuisine and history!
Once you arrive at Athens International Airport, it isn’t at all difficult to get to your accommodation. Simply ride the Metro from the airport to the Omonia Metro Station and Exarchion Hotel is a short 5 minute stroll from there.
The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is an attraction in itself. The Exarchia Area is well known as a cultural hub where people from all walks of life congregate to frequent cheap tavernas, peruse record stores or hang out in Exarchia square- an area constantly buzzing with people playing games, live music or having interesting, politically driven discussions amongst themselves.
This area has been described as drawing parallels with cultural hubs in cities such as New York and Berlin- although it has cleaned up its image in recent years and is now more well known for its mix of cultures and political ideologies than its headline grabbing past!
The area now attracts the youth of Athens with its gritty, eclectic bars, restaurants and abundance of street art.
If you’re a traveller who is used to creature comforts and the security of a McDonald’s on every corner, you may not be all that impressed with this fascinating area…but if the sound of the ever-rebellious Exarchia Square and surrounds ignites your inner anarchist then you’re bound to fall in love with Greece from the very first night of your tour!
9 Day Greek Island Hopping Tour
Our 9 day Greek Island Hopping tour begins in Santorini, where you will meet your tour manager and fellow travellers for your 4.30pm, welcome meeting at Santorini Camping.
If you are arriving in Santorini by ferry, there are taxis which will take you to Santorini Camping when you arrive in port. To get to the accommodation from Thira Airport, the cheapest way is to travel by bus to Fira, then walk for approximately 8 minutes.
You can check into your hotel anytime from 2pm, however you won’t meet your fellow travellers and tour guide until 4.30pm, where you’ll get together and get a feel for the week ahead!
While you’re waiting for your tour manager and fellow travelers to join you, why not check out the local sites of Santorini? The accommodation is only 350m away from the main town of Fira, where you’ll find plenty of places to eat, drink and explore. Visit quaint cathedrals and museums, taking in the breathtaking views of the many secluded bays, beaches and volcanoes. You may even catch a glimpse of a world famous Santorini sunset!
Our 11 day Island Hopping Tour finishes back in Athens, whilst our 9 day itinerary will end on the island of Mykonos.
Whatever tour you’re on, you can be guaranteed an incredible time with other young travelers. If partying, swimming, relaxing sounds like your idea of a holiday, you can’t go past the Greek Islands!
