It's impossible to review the program accurately since we followed an almost completely different itinerary from the one listed. We're always told it's vital to be flexible, and this illustrated why: the winds and thus the seas were too high for us to go to the Cyclades at all, and we ended up circumnavigating the Peloponnesian peninsula instead. It was a wonderful trip (a Greek-born participant was thrilled, saying it was the REAL Greece we were seeing), and the group was very upbeat about it. The guide was excellent, as were the activities and the shore excursions. Now the trouble is that I don't dare keep this program on my wish list, lest this occur again, as they say it could at any time of year.


There are many steps and uphill and downhill walking. If you are willing to be satisfied with what you can do ( you must do at least half ) and yet not hold up the group, it a dream trip come true


Very stimulating and enjoyable tour. The interaction between Road Scholar and Variety Cruises on the Galileo was quite successful. Fun to be on such a small boat with such a manageable group. Much mutual appreciation.


The Jewel of the Cyclades lives up to its' active description with many steps on cobbled and marbled paths. The effort is well worth it as it is guided by knowledgeable leader. From urban Athens with it's ancient ruins atop the hill to the Isles, each with its story, I gained insite into Greek history. Touring on the Galileo with a small group of adventurers was fantastic. New friends were made. And the Sea is really as blue as all the pictures show. The views on Santorini are very special. And they do have donkeys for transport! The food is fantastic. I would recommend this adventure to anyone wishing to experience this beautiful part of the world in a unique way. Judy Kanter, Red Wing ,MN
