Travelstride Take
Traveling around the Greek Islands with EF Ultimate Break (formerly EF College Break) is an experience geared toward energetic young people after a fun, social, party-centric tour.   There's a lot of free time on this trip - with suggested activities provided. This is not a good choice if you're looking to really soak in the history and culture of Greece with lots of guided walks and inclusions.   But if meeting locals and enjoy the nightlife and being out on the water is what you want from your next Greek getaway - EF Ultimate Break Greek Islands will be a great choice.    Great for:   Social travelers   Nightlife enthusiasts   Water sports   College Aged Adults   Not the kind of trip you're after?
