Athens, the Greek Isles: Mykonos, Santorini and Crete
The treasures of Athens… the romance of the Greek isles. What’s better than a journey with a cherished companion or a family vacation to one of these prized destinations? A 14 day Tour. You may arrive any day in Athens: May through September.
This is a trip tailored to make the most of that special company and unique occasion, be it an anniversary, a honeymoon, a family vacation or a singular chance to be alone and away.
We have selected superior and deluxe hotels notable for their charm, atmosphere, and, of course, fine service.

Of course, Travel in Style will see to all the details, from arrival to conveyance to the Isles to settling you into your fine accommodations, leaving you to do nothing but relax and enjoy – in your own style.
