The Greeks have a word for a feeling that expresses joy, fun, passion and loving life: kefi. Our special women-only Greece land and island tour lets you fully embrace the spirit of this region, which gave birth to Western civilization, the Olympics and the healthful Mediterranean diet! You’ll not only experience all of the Greek classics—seeing the Acropolis and Parthenon, sailing the sparkling-blue Aegean Sea, and stopping at mythical islands like Mykonos, Crete, and Santorini. Along the way, you’ll enjoy special women-focused experiences which will allow you to learn more about the role of women in Greece’s history as well as the role of the Olympian goddesses on Greek myth and legend. Let’s raise a glass of ouzo to finding your kefi on this odyssey through spectacular Greece and the Greek Islands.
