Visiting Greece and its islands has been on my bucket list. This summer, I was fortunate enough to cross that off by touring on the Greek Island Hopper with Trafalgar. This tour was right up my alley since it is at leisure pace, which allows for longer stays in each city and plenty of time on your own. The tour consisted of 2 nights in Athens, 3 in Mykonos, 3 in Santorini, and 1 last night back at Athens. I enjoyed that Trafalgar took care of all the logistics and included some meals while allowing us to explore local cuisines on our own.
The first day on our Land of the Incas with Trafalgar tour, we went on a Lima tour, seeing sites and learning the local history. Later that night, we went to a wonderful dinner and folklore show. The performers were amazing. I happened to be one of the guests selected to go on stage and dance with the performers!
Greece has been one of my bucket list destinations for a very long time. My trip to Greece on the Greek Island Hopper with Trafalgar tour, started with our arrival in Athens, Greece. There we stayed in the Radisson Blu Park hotel for three nights. I flew in a day early to get used to the time change and explore more of the city. The weather was so hot but nothing kept us from going out. Some tips you should know before traveling to Greece is to bring a hat, sunblock, light clothes, comfortable shoes, and water bottles. Our hotel was a 30-minute walk to the Athens Plaka shopping center, and approximately 20 minutes to the flea market, but you could use a taxi if you’d like.
I can’t say enough good things about the Highlights of Vietnam with Trafalgar. This tour will be remembered as one of my favorite vacations ever. The tour was 12 days of cultural discovery, great food, beautiful beaches, lovely humble people and fun. Every hotel on this itinerary was top notch and centrally located.
I took the Best of Italy with Trafalgar trip with my husband and parents. Our tour was for a total of 13 days and brought us to see the southern gems of Amalfi Coast, the Northern lakes and the jewels of central Italy, Tuscany and Umbria.
