Cruise the Idyllic Greek Isles on an 11-Day Guided Tour of Greece & Turkey

Get to know the ancient gods a little better on a 11-day guided tour that takes you from mainland Greece to Turkey and the Greek Isles. Ascend to the Athens’ Acropolis, where you can walk around the towering Parthenon, a temple built to the goddess Athena. Cruise to Kusadasi and then travel with a Local Expert to the ruins of Ephesus, which was erected in the 6th Century B.C. Sail to Rhodes, where the Crusaders once built their headquarters, and to Crete, the homeplace of Zeus. Wander the charming maze of walkways in Mykonos and then gaze at the sheer cliffs of Santorini — and later, take in the most beautiful sunset you’ll ever see.
