Poetic Ruins and Islands in the Sun, on Your Greece Vacation
A vacation in Greece is all about millennia-old historic sites and sun-drenched coastal towns, their whitewashed buildings stark against the deep blue sea. Wherever you go, tavernas serve fresh seafood, pies, plus iconic favorites: moussaka, souvlaki, dolmades, and keftedes.
The legendary Acropolis looms atop a hill in the capital Athens. Spend the better part of a day exploring its museum and the Parthenon—an ideal way to begin your lesson in Greek history. Follow it up with a cable car ride up Lykavittos Hill at sunset for fabulous views of the city. Take the time to plunge into the maze of cobblestone streets in the Plaka neighborhood, where cafés and markets mingle with ancient ruins. Not too far from Athens is Delphi, where the Temple of Apollo and the Delphi Archaeological Museum let you capture the magnificence of the ancient Greek civilization. Continue your explorations at the rock formations in Meteora and the ancient Olympic stadium in Olympia.
The toughest choice you need to make is about which of the hundreds of Greek islands you should travel to. Whether you choose to go island-hopping or stay in one spot, a knowledgeable Enchanting Travels expert can help you create a perfect itinerary. In the Cyclades islands in the South Aegean Sea, it could be Santorini for its sunsets, black lava beach, and the ancient ruins of Akrotiri. Mykonos for cubist architecture and the buzz of trendy restaurants and nightlife. On Folegandros, vibrant blue doors and pink bougainvillea make the cliff top village of Hora one of the most picturesque you’ll see. And Paros island promises gorgeous beaches and a splendid old church and Byzantine museum.
On Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, explore Minoan civilization through a visit to the Palace of Knossos. This isle also has mountains, beaches, and its very own wines.
Then, for a true experience of “siga siga”, the Greek attitude of slowing down life, take to the romantic town of Nafplio, or quiet and luxurious Porto Heli, on the northeastern Peloponnese coast.

“My wife and I have been planning a trip through South America and our Travel Consultant, Lisa Fox, has provided nothing but exceptional service and support to create the perfect itinerary for this trip. Bags were nearly packed and we could picture the view from Machu Picchu, but plans have had to change due to travel safety and restrictions from the recent Coronavirus. While this could have been a very stressful time having to reschedule, rebook and who knows how much money could have been lost for what has already been paid for, Enchanting Travels has made it incredibly easy and stress free to reschedule the trip once this passes. We are very appreciative for the pre-trip support, and can already tell that the experience once we are actually on the road will be equally incredibly. Thanks for all your support!“
“Great company, great people!
They helped us put together a complex schedule which included a number of experiences that we could not otherwise get. Also, in light of Covid-19, they were able to reschedule our upcoming Japan trip without additional fees, where many of my friends have scheduled similar trips (same timeframe) on their own, and all were refused a refund or reschedule without significant fees, despite having trip insurance.”
“We have used Enchanting Travels twice for trips. We couldn’t have been happier with the trips planned. Our first trip was a spectacular trip to southern India with driver for three weeks. This year’s trip was to Scotland. Unfortunately with the corona virus pandemic we chose to postpone this trip until 2021. Enchanting travels was very understanding of our concerns and quickly responded by moving our trip with all our desired sights to spring of 2021. Couldn’t ask for anything better from this stellar company with their caring staff.”
“Enchanting Travels is a bespoke experience. From planning my trip, through to the trip itself, everything was thought about. We traveled at a particularly difficult time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were supported with everything, kept up to date with how the situation was developing and how this might affect us. Having WiFi in the car allowed us to communicate with our Trip Coordinator and check with our online government updates. Our stay was luckily not affected, but I felt so supported by the team. Our guides were ready waiting for us, could answer any questions about the sites we were visiting, they communicated with our chauffeur to ensure everything went smoothly. I could not recommend this company more highly. Excellent planning, experience, and execution. Our holiday was truly ENCHANTING!“
“The best thing about Enchanting Travels is the people, from the trip planners to the guides to the drivers. Everyone has been friendly, courteous and professional. The activities and accommodations are planned to fit our wishes, but we still had the flexibility to add or change and activity at short notice.”
“I recently completed a 46-day adventure tour through India that was the best ever thanks to Enchanting Travels. The Enchanting Agent began by interviewing me for an hour and came back with the perfect routing and pacing. The on-the-ground support was second to none. Enchanting says that their trip coordinators are there ‘in case of emergency’ but that does not come near to describing the relationship. My trip coordinator was in constant communication with me to ensure that every leg of the trip went as planned. No detail was too small for her to look after. I was assigned the same driver for 27 days and he was the ‘Best Indian Driver Ever’ because he did more than drive. He curated experiences on the road on those ‘non-planned’ days that I will remember for a lifetime. The value for money was simply remarkable. I don’t think I’ll travel without the help of Enchanting Travels again.”
“Enchanting Travels is very knowledgeable about the areas they coordinate travels for. The consultants and coordinators are very easy to work with to arrange and coordinate what you want to see and do.”
“Enchanting Travels was stellar across the board. From planning to getting there and experiencing Peru, our Enchanting Travels team made it truly enjoyable. The perfect amount of culture, adventure, and relaxation!”
One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
All the little touches made by our Enchanting Travel consultant, Amelia Edwards, were noticed and recognized by my wife and I. Thank you for making our milestone trip (25th wedding anniversary) such a memorable one! We look forward to engaging Enchanting Travels again for our next South American adventure!!
This was my first adventure as a solo traveler. But while I may have traveled on my own, I was never alone. I was well taken care of by a superb team of planners, trip coordinators, guides and drivers.
