Classic Greece 2024 is a relaxing island hopping package to explore some of the most beautiful Greek Cyclades islands. One thought immediately springs to mind when thinking of Greece: whitewashed homes, windmills and an unending view of the beautiful Aegean Sea. Start your journey in Athens filled to the brim with historical sights and lay claim to being one of the oldest cities in the world. Did you know that the historic center of Athens has been converted into a 3km pedestrian zone? You will find at almost every corner in the city a Taverna where your culinary needs will be fulfilled. Afterward travel to Naxos, one of the largest Greek islands with wonderful sandy beaches. Continue to Mykonos and end your holiday in Santorini. Both islands do not need any introductions as they are known for the perfect sunset for the romantic at heart

Country information

Best time to go
Vacation season opens early spring  - April and runs through to Mid-October. Some say the best months to travel are between mid-April to mid-June. You will enjoy peace and quiet as the tourist crowds have not arrived as yet (JUL-AUG). Just watch out for the Easter Weekend, as this is the most important religious weekend on the Greek Calendar.

Food & drink
Basic ingredients for a meal are bread, grains, potatoes, rice and of course olive oil. Eggplants, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, lentils also form part of the staple diet. Greeks don’t eat to live but rather live to eat. 

Culture and Language
Traditions are still strong in Greece and are to be respected, especially in the rural areas. Smoking is prohibited in public. Since ancient times, Greeks have been known for their hospitality and laid-back mannerism. However, family values always come first. Greek is the official language but note that  half of Greece’s population understands English

Getting around
The most traditional way of travel to/from the Islands is by ferry. It is such an enjoyable experience and not to be missed. When travelling by car, always remember those lanes may be narrow and may have hairpin bends. On most islands, one can rent a motorbike which is the best way to explore offbeat places. Always wear a helmet. {Present your drivers’ licence at the Rental station and make sure you have Travel Insurance)

Included in your restaurant bill, ranging between 10 & 12%. Check the bill first before adding some extra. Housecleaning, bell boys and the concierge would appreciate a tip if their service has been up to standards

Favourite Dishes
It is a tradition to eat in Greece. Look out for a Taverna if you want to have a  traditional meal. The servings are generous, and you will enjoy the traditional settings. Meals are simple and prepared with seasonal produce, olive oil and grills
