Join this fascinating Greek island-hopping cruise, where modern and ancient history combine. Enjoy breathtaking scenery and discover 5,000 years of history and culture, all while staying at three small, friendly and traditional Greek hotels on Santorini, Paros and Naxos.

Real value for money, good accommodation, great excursions, travel arrangements worked well, and our tour guide was excellent. Would recommend the optional excursions.?
