You've seen photos of the ancient Acropolis in Athens, dating back to the 5th century BC-now's your chance to see it in person. You've watched the Olympics on TV-now's your chance to walk among the ruins in Olympia, where the Olympics began in 776 BC. You've eaten at Greek restaurants-now's your chance to enjoy an authentic Greek cooking demonstration, where you'll learn how to make the traditional Greek tzatziki appetizer. All of this and more await you on this Classical Greece guided tour.

History comes alive on your guided visits to many of Greece's ancient sites. In addition to the Acropolis and Olympia, you'll also visit ancient Corinth, dating back to the 8th century BC and the place where St. Paul preached; the ruins in Mycenae, dating from 1,350 to 1,200 BC and described by Homer; the amazingly well-preserved, 2,300-year-old open-air theater in Epidaurus; and Thermopylae, where the battle between the Greeks and Persians took place in 480 BC.

In ancient Greece, people traveled to Delphi to seek the wisdom from the Oracle. Here, you'll hear about the Oracle, tour the excavations, and visit its Archaeological Museum. You'll step back in history to visit the fantastic landscape of Meteora with its 24 rock-top monasteries.

You'll get a true sense of Greek life and culture with a dance lesson to learn the sirtaki. You'll also be escorted by an expert Tour Director who will bring the country to life by sharing its history, stories, and local secrets.

From the picturesque fishing villages to ancient historic sites, this escorted tour of Greece is a vacation of a lifetime!
