“Eleni was an incredible tour guide who perfectly balanced history with partying. Her knowledge of all the places we visited was exceptional. She was a supportive, energetic, fun and all out amazing tour guide. The islands and optional tours were enjoyable and well worth your money. It is a party tour so be prepared to drink and dance all night long, most nights. Can’t wait to book another Med experience tour.”

FAQ's

We are a small family-owned and operated company that’s highest priority is you, our guests! We have established relationships with local suppliers so you are receiving an authentic Greek experience. We also take care of all the work for you, so unlike other Greek Island tours which require you to book your own rooms or sleep in tents, all our accommodations are in 2 and 3 star hostels and hotels which provide air conditioning and comfort during those warm summer evenings in Greece. We also arrange all of your ferry tickets, removing the risk of cancellations, strikes and inclement weather ruining your holidays.

We're a family-owned company that utilises locally run accommodation providers for our tours. We have positive relationships with our suppliers and avoid the need for large profit margins. Additionally, we do not provide commission to travel agents, enabling us to provide amazing value for money to our clients

A basic continental breakfast is included every morning with your Greek Island Hopping tour. Lunch, dinner and snacks are not included, as this is another way we save on costs by allowing you to spend as much as you like on food and drinks, and try authentic local cuisine. Your friendly tour manager will of course recommend places to eat and drink!

Our Greek island Hopping Tour is not a cruise, you travel between the islands via public ferries and stay in hostels or small hotels on each island and on the mainland.

Greece uses the Euro and is a part of the European Union as well as the Schengen region. There are plenty of ATM’s in Greece to get cash out as well as exchange offices.

We take care of all of the details for you. Meet your tour manager in Athens or Santorini on your first night to hear the details of which ferries you'll be taking and the timings for all arrangements. We book the ferries as close to departure as possible to ensure you are getting the best available ferry and to take into consideration any foreseeable strikes or disruptions! We also arrange for all transfers between the ports and accommodation.

Due to the possibility of delays to the ferry, we strongly recommend against booking onward travel on the night you return to Athens (day 10 of the tour).

If you’re joining us on an 11 day tour, you will arrive at Athens International Airport. From here you can ride the Metro (public transport) from the airport to ‘Omonia Metro Station’. Exarchion Hotel is a short 5 minute stroll from here.

If you’re joining us on a 9 day day tour, you will start your tour in Santorini. If you are arriving by ferry, there are taxis which will take you to Santorini Camping when you arrive in port. To get to your accommodation from Thira Airport, the cheapest way is to travel by bus to Fira Town and then walk for approximately 8 minutes.
