What travelers are saying

"I've travelled with Intrepid in Vietnam, Morocco, Nepal and Egypt and had a brilliant time every time. The experience is better than most tours as you are in a small group that goes a bit more 'off the beaten track', and you don't get taken to endless shopping opportunites (i.e. a cousin's carpet shop). They also have higher ethics than most travel companies, they contribute to local charities and they avoid animal use (donkeys etc) where possible. The tour leaders we have had have all been wonderful, knowledgable and relaxed, with good english."

What travelers are saying

"A Culture Trip curated trip is a must for anyone burnt out planning their own trips or going to a remote or unfamiliar area. Having a local insider was the highlight of the trip. From the moment we landed to the moment we had to go through security to leave, we were completely taken care of. Our insider gave us great recommendations for restaurants and was very adaptable to any situation that arose."

What travelers are saying

"It is a well thought out tour and be prepared to walk a lot but that is not because of Trafalgar, but because of the cities in ITALY. Roads are cobblestone and narrow and cars and buses can't be accommodated."

What travelers are saying

"This was the first organized tour my husband and I have ever joined, so we were not sure what to expect , but it turned out to be the best vacation we've ever had. The scenery and food were amazing. We stayed in beautiful hotels. Most of the riding was on paved bike paths so we hardly ever had to deal with car traffic. Our leaders, Andrea and Martin, were funny, informative , and so helpful. We are already planning to go back to Italy with VBT this summer."

Greece Tour Selection Trips

  • While visiting the Acropolis is a must, you really don’t need a lot of time in Athens. Flights will fly right into Athens so spending 1-2 days at the beginning or end of your trip is usually sufficient.
  • There are many options for getting between the islands — flying, taking a ferry or chartering a boat. The waters can be a little rough at times, so flying between the farther islands might be a good option for those who get sea sick.
  • While on the map the islands look close, they are quite a distance from the mainland. The “closer” islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Crete are all over 4 hours on a ferry, so if you are looking to visit multiple islands, be sure to know the distances so you make sure to have enough time in each island.
  • Each island has its own culture and attractions: Santorini has the iconic photos you see of the blue-topped churches on the cliff and the lava-black sand beaches. Mykonos is the “party” island with lots of day beach clubs and a robust nightlife. Koufanisis is the off-the-beaten-path island with a small, country feel. Naxos is also a less-traveled island with abundant shops and restaurants and a beautiful castle.

Experiencing Ancient Greece on Your Tour

The Ancient Greeks founded democracy, created theater, the key principles of modern architecture, philosophy, trial by jury, instituted a mythology still taught to every generation, standardized medicine, and generally provided the foundation to all of Western Civilization.

As a result, we have a couple things to thank them for -- and there is no better way to do this than to visit the many Ancient archaeological sites that stand to this day in Greece. Here are some of the best archaeological sites in Greece:

1. The Acropolis.

This UNESCO world heritage site is a worldwide symbol for the contributions of Ancient Greece to modernity. Some of its most notable features include the theatre of Herod Atticus, the Parthenon, the Temple of Nike Athena, and the Pinacotheca.

2. The Parthenon.

Perhaps the most iconic symbol of Greece, this temple sits in the heart of Athens. Originally dedicated to the goddess Athena, it housed various statues. This massive building, one of the most impressive architectural feats of its time, is truly awe inspiring to see in person.

3. Monolithos Castle in Rhodes.

 Climbing the tall rock that the castle sits on will not only give you a peek at the two 15th century chapels inside of Monolithos, but gorgeous views of the entire island. One interesting feature of the Monolithos castle is that it was built on the foundations of an even older castle, which is easily seen at the spot.

4. Mycenae.

This late Bronze Age city was once one of the epicenters of Greek civilization, and remains remarkably intact.

5. Acropolis of Rhodes.

Made up of the ruins of multiple temples, a small odeion, and other buildings, a guided tour of this spot can offer deep insight into Ancient Grecian life. The surrounding natural sights make the trip particularly enjoyable.

6. Temple of Apollo, Delphi.

Although perhaps not so physically impressive, this spot is overwhelmed with spiritual and historical significance. The home of the Oracle of Delphi, this site plays a role in dozens of ancient myths and modern stories.

Facts about Greece

  • The official name of Greece is the Hellenic Republic.
  • The saying “taking the bull by its horns” comes from the Greek myth of Hercules saving Crete from a raging bull by seizing its horns
  • 80% of Greece is mountainous.
  • Continuously inhabited for over 7,000 years, Athens is one of the oldest cities in Europe. It is also the birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy, the Olympic Games, political science, Western literature, historiography, major mathematical principles, and Western theories of tragedy and comedy.
  • Greece has more archaeological museums than any other country in the world.
  • Greece’s currency, the drachma, was 2,650 years old and Europe’s oldest currency. The drachma was replaced with the Euro in 2002.
  • Make sure to try Greece's national dish: moussaka. 
  • Voting is required by law for every citizen who is 18 or older.
  • Greek people wave with a closed hand as it is considered rude to show your palm of your hand in public.
