From ancient temples to small fishing villages and the beautiful islands filled with sun, fun, and culture, Greece provides so incredibly much for visiting groups to enjoy and to learn about.

Traveling to Greece on an All Inclusive tour can make it easier to navigate through the crush of tourists, traffic, and perhaps even the Athenian smog. You'll be able to visit the famous ruins, architecture, and history of Greece, while gaining the knowledge and perspective of an expert tour leader.

No trip to Greece will be complete without seeing its ultimate symbol, the Acropolis, crowned with the Athena's sacred temple, the Parthenon. Try to visit in the early morning (before partying tourists wake up) or late afternoon to avoid the crowds and possible heat during the summer months. Even those with a mild interest should visit The National Archaeological Museum and its world-class display of Greek and Egyptian artifacts.

The island of Crete offers a bit of everything, from sun and fun beach towns to sophisticated, expensive little cities, the natural wonders of the Samaria Gorge, and the bohemian area of Matala next to Roman ruins and the Minoan palace of Phaistos.

Mykonos is at the center of Greek island life. It's lively, quaint, and fun. The volcanic island of Santorini boasts spectacular natural beauty and active nightlife. Delphi has the ruins of the famous oracle and was considered to be literally the center of the universe and home to the famous play festivals of Dionysus.

If you're looking for a little more historical drama, see the Peloponnese peninsula and the ancient fortress of Mycenae. Home to doomed Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, the site launched the "Mycenean Period" when its people and leaders dominated Greece, Crete, and the Aegean islands.

But what Greece is possibly most famous for is her fun-loving, passionate people. We recommend stopping to talk, eat, or for sure dance with locals to deepen your group's experience. Also consider seeing more of the Mediterranean region, as many tour operators serving Greece can take you to Turkey, Italy, or even Egypt.
