    Day 1 - Start Athens

    Hello island lovers! Welcome to Greece, and welcome to the best holiday of your life. It's a big call to make on day 1, but we're making it! Take a minute to unpack in settle in to our hotel before we meet up this evening. First your Trip Manager will give you the rundown of what to expect over the next 10 days, then you'll have free time to explore the local area and find yourself some dinner.


    Day 2 - Athens to Mykonos

    Yes, yes, you're hearing the call of cocktails on Mykonos Island. But let's get acquainted with Athens for a day before we set sail. This city is a time capsule of life on earth. This morning, a local guide will take us on a guided city tour of Athens including the iconic Acropolis and Olympic Stadium. And in the evening you will have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Athens affair in the famous Plaka area of the city.


    Day 3 - Mykonos

    Having opened the lid on Athens & its intricacies, we'll pack our bags & get ready for some island time. From the old iconic windmills near Little Venice to the peppering of cute cafes, thisisland has no shortage of Greek charm. For those not inclined towards slow paced days, you can sip cocktails & enjoy the nightlife at the popular Paradise Beach.


    Day 4 - Mykonos to Paros

    This morning we're on to our next Greek island, Paros. Let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only get to visit just one Greek Island, and then remember how lucky we are. Beaches, naturally sculpted swimming coves, a Byzantine church and traditional villages: we must be in Paros. Here you're free to get into the sun and sea vibes.


    Day 5 - Paros

    Another day, another opportunity for Greek Island adventures. Those who feel like exploring can sign up for an optional trip to an Organic Farm run where you'll sample their delicious produce and then head to one of the prettiest villages in the Cyclades - Naoussa. You'll be back in time to join forces with the rest of your crew for an included dinner together this evening.


    Day 6 - Paros to Santorini

    Paros, it's been magical – but today we're taking to the seas again, this time in search of Greece's most insta-famous island: Santorini. Santorini, we have arrived! Tonight you'll have the chance to join us on a cruise and take in the iconic Fira.


    Day 7 - Santorini

    Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini won't explore itself. Today is your day to take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, or roam and explore. You can even opt to take an incredible volcano cruise around Santorini, starting with a visit to Oia and complete with crater hike and a soak in local hot springs.


    Day 8 - Santorini to Ios

    A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery for our final Island night. And thankfully, there will be no change in the good vibes or the time spent ocean side. We'll join together for an included dinner tonight, with another free evening on the cards afterwards.


    Day 9 - Ios

    Our final Island day, and your last chance to soak up the Greek sun and frolic in the sand without a care in the world. Now is your chance to get some adrenaline in with a speedboat safari, or take a leisurely stroll around the pretty village of Ios Chora and enjoy some stuffed zucchini flowers or baked feta drizzled with olive oil at a local cafe. It's a free evening tonight, so you're going to need the fuel if you want to hit the party scene of Hora until the break of dawn.


    Day 10 - Ios to Athens

    While choking back the tears and waving a sad goodbye to the dreamy islands of Greece, try to think positive thoughts: we have a boat ride to enjoy this morning, as well as one more night together in the city of Athens. Ready for one more dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together? We'll soak up the last rays of the Mediterranean sun this afternoon before an optional farewell dinner together.


    Day 11 - End Athens

    And just like that, it's time for the goodbyes. As sad as they are, at least you have the memories. And another 300 Contiki trips to jump aboard! Make the most of your last free breakfast before you kick on to your next port of call and for those of you that have the time, there's an optional city tour and Acropolis visit.
