In visiting Greece one must realize the significant geology that has affected the area...earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. In the unlocking of Greece one must realize how deeply the civilizations are covered, one upon the other.


Greek mythology came to life as we visited the archeological sites, walking on stone cobbled streets beside crumbling walls of antiquity and looked in awe at statues of gods and goddesses.


Take this tour! If you've always wanted to see Greek history before your own eyes and experience it with a small group of like-minded people, this is for you. You can't prepare enough for the astonishingly beautiful and breathtaking sites and scenes.

Absoltely amazing! Entire ship’s crew was wonderful! Best of all, though, was our RS guide Maria! There can’t possibly be anyone more knowledgable or more caring! We are so grateful! Winds required reversing our schedule and a 24 hr flu bug took down half of us during a 4-day period. We weathered it all and Maria was empathetic and more every day. Food? Our chef, in a fairly small kitchen, prepared delightful buffets for us each day never repeating an entree. Our room was comfortably spacious. Our windows were large for great views. We loved this tour and would recommend it highly to agile walkers.


If you have ever wanted to visit the Greek Islands, this is the program for you. The guide, Maria, was excellent and had an encyclopedic knowledge of Greece. Although the boat, Callisto, needs updating, the service and food were excellent. There was little to complain about!


Fantastic program! A must for any lover of ancient Greek. Great for anyone who wants to learn about ancient Greece. All while enjoying current day Greece and all it has to offer. Top notch accommodation: travel, lodging and FOOD! My 1st Road Scholar experience and hopefully not my last.


Excellent in all respects.


This program is immensely interesting, historically and archeologically.


This program is a good introduction to Greece with its visits to historical sites and ruins and the amount of history covered, including mythological history. Maria was a knowledgeable program leader and lecturer. The scenery is gorgeous. Road Scholar participants tend to be interesting, engaged, people who are fun travel companions. The only warning would be to be flexible because the weather can make it necessary to change the itinerary and experiences.
