Ancient Greece small group holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We do our best to preserve our cultural heritage. During our tour we visit Acropolis, Delphi, Ancient Olympia, Mycenae and Epidaurus. All these popular places have a great historic importance and concern the whole world. Our experienced guides, following the motto "Respect our ancient heritage!" they provide visitors practical advice about leaving ‘no traces’ on the archaeological sites they visit. This is particularly important due to over tourism in these historical sites and will allow this treasure to remain intact.
We usually collaborate with small hotels, we often choose traditional renovated mansions to stay in. During this tour, we spend two nights in Nafplio in an exquisite renovated hotel. The renovation was achieved using local materials.
Some of the locations we visit are protected areas due to the sensitive flora and fauna species. The sandy beach of Ai Giannakis, situated in the Western Peloponnese, is home to the caretta-caretta turtle. We have to be careful. Thus, before leaving we collect our rubbish and other objects that don’t belong to the location and dispose of it in the correct bins.
We suggest to our travelers to say no to plastic bags, so we present them with a beautiful fabric bag as a gift. They can use the eco bag during our tours to put their water and souvenirs in. At the end of the tour, they can take the bag home as a remembrance of the journey.
We also want to avoid the purchase of plastic bottles on the trip. We suggest to our visitors to bring their own water bottles. Whenever possible, we drink water coming from water springs or from the village taps, depending on the water safety.
Tourism has the capacity to have a great impact on the whole planet and on the environment as well. Our goal is to make this impact as positive as possible!

Community

We are passionate about Greece and especially with the Peloponnese! We were born in the Peloponnese and we love local people! We want to help maximizing the benefits that controlled tourism can bring to the Peloponnesian people. Our trips help to promote the small entrepreneurial business.
The philosophy behind our trips is: we care - we share - we love!
This trip has been built with locals in mind. We want our travelers to meet and talk with our local friends, by experiencing their amazing home grown food, their excellent wine and visiting their beautiful shops.
On this trip the travelers will meet Fotini in lleia, who cooks the best chicken with roasted potatoes in the Peloponnese, they will meet Christina and her husband in their traditional winery in Arcadia, where they will taste their aromatic local wine. They will get to talk to Maria in her workshop in Argolida, where they will have the opportunity to buy her beautiful silk scarves. In Achaia they will get the chance to learn how to cook delicious Greek dishes by the local chef, George.
Working with the local communities has strengthened our relationship with many small businesses and has allowed us to provide this interactive and immersive trip in Greece. The accommodations, we stay in, are locally-owned and are distinguished for their quality and simple luxury. The restaurants, we have chosen for our meals, are locally-owned and are recommend the best restaurants of the provinces we visit.
We always advise our guests to interact with the local people, get involved in their traditional feasts, taste delicacies from small stores, buy desserts and bread from local bakeries.
We strongly believe that travelers, who are sensitive to responsible tourism, like we are, will follow our advice.
In this way, they will enjoy their journey more, and us, we will help, as much as we can, our home country.
