Description of Peloponnese highlights tour, 8 days

This Peloponnese highlights tour will cover the cultural and natural highlights of every state within the biggest island of Greece: Peloponnese. Each region has something unique to offer the visitor, with a wide array of archaeological, natural and cultural sites.

Peloponnese includes some of the most important archaeological sites in the whole of Greece, many of them protected as UNESCO's world heritage monuments. These include the world famous Epidaurus, Mycenae and Ancient Olympia. We will also visit see some of Greece’s finest beaches where the sea is crystal clear water and perfect for swimming.

We have created an itinerary which includes not only cultural visits but also plenty of adventure, such as hiking along the Lousios River, visiting the Diros caves in Mani and picnicking or dining on superb Peloponnese food in some equally superb locations.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism: Peloponnese highlights tour, 8 days

Environment

Having been born and raised in the Peloponnese region, we want to contribute to the good conservation of our region and its flora and fauna.

At our office we make organized recycling of paper, plastic, glass and metal, which we collect and carry them ourselves to a recycling company, which pays us according to the weight and type of recyclable materials we take. The money we collect is offered to local institutions according to their needs.

In addition, we encourage our guests to walk to the places we visit to get to know the place better and to reduce the harmful use of the car for short distances in the city or around the area we visit.

Also, the activities of this tour promote the acquaintance with the local wildlife, flora and fauna and promote the respect for it. We inform our guests about the local plant and animal species that exist in the area. Depending on the season, we show them the species of plants and herbs used for healing purposes all around Greece and we inform them about the way we use them.

Community

In general, our philosophy is to support local producers and suppliers in the wider region of the Peloponnese. That is why we host our guests in small hotels that are mostly family-run with few rooms that employ staff from the area. We also propose our guests small local taverns that serve local dishes made with pure ingredients from our place.

The welcome gifts we offer to our guests are made with pure materials, like pure virgin olive oil and beeswax, which we only buy from local producers, thus ensuring maximum quality and encouraging the agricultural production of our country.

Our guides and people who help us are young people with knowledge and love for their place. In general, we are trying to empower young people to keep them in Greece and not to leave their country and to contribute to the maximum we can in reducing unemployment that plagues Greece. Being young people, we know that you have to motivate young people to stay in the province and that is what we are trying to do through their welfare and the recognition of their offer.

We make a great effort through the tours we organize to benefit as many people as possible and encourage youthful entrepreneurship.
