Greece in winter holiday
Description of Greece in winter holiday
This trip can be booked between November and March
When you see photos of Greece, they are usually of the island idylls. But for some reason, apart from Athens, mainland Greece often gets overlooked on...
Fed up with commercialised Christmas? So over Santa? Wondering when winter will be over at the start of November? We have a cure for the winter blues ...
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe do our best to preserve our cultural heritage. During our tour we visit Acropolis, Delphi, 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.
In Nafplio, where we stay for one night, we usually collaborate with two traditional renovated mansions, that are located in the Old Town. The renovation of these two hotels was achieved using local materials and with great respect for the environment of the Old Town of Nafplio.
We suggest to our travelers to say no to plastic bags, so we present them with a beautiful fabric bag as a gift, when they arrive in Athens. They can use the eco bag during the tour 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.
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!
PeopleThe philosophy behind all our trips is : we care - we share - we love! The meaning is that our tours are purely anthropocentric and focus on people and their culture. That's why we offer to our guests warm hospitality. That's why we prefer hotels and family restaurants run by locals. That's why we promote goods from the agricultural and livestock production of the region we visit.
We select local official guides to the archaeological sites, who are able to offer an insight into the culture of each region and guide the visitors to unique and less known areas.
We care about all the Greek communities we visit, so we recommend local handicraft shops to our travelers so that their holiday spending contributes to the economic development of the region. On this trip we will meet Maria and visit her workshop in Argolida, where we will have the opportunity to buy her beautiful silk scarves. Maria weaves her unique scarves, which are works of art, on her mother's old loom!
We strongly believe that travelers, who are sensitive to responsible tourism, like we are, will follow all our advice. By this way, they will enjoy their journey more, and us, we will help, as much as we can, our home country. If you want to enjoy a tour as much as possible, the best way is to be a traveler, not a tourist. The right way to travel is to join the authentic life of each country of the world, that you visit !
