Multi-generational travel is a growing trend, and for very good reasons. It’s an opportunity to spend quality time together, strengthen bonds, share new experiences together and create memories that will last a lifetime. This tour to Greece, the Greek Islands and Crete is designed for multi-generational travel. Not only is there something for everyone, and every age, but the tour’s pace is geared to accommodate varying levels of energy and activity.
Greece is the cradle of Western Civilization, and whether one is Greek or not, we can all share in the pride of a country whose history played a big part in shaping the world we live in today. During your stay, you will visit important archeological sites, walk along paths that felt the footsteps of historical figures thousands of years ago, gaze at vistas that have been memorialized in literature. Ancient Greek mythology will come alive as you stroll through the remains of King Minos’ palace. You’ll savor wines at local taverns that would have tempted the Greek god, Dionysus. You’ll walk along beaches, and look out at a sea that once belonged to Poseidon. And all the while, you and your family will be building your own legend of memories.
