White marble columns, gnarled olive trees, turquoise blue skies, and radiant sunsets are reflections of Greece. Archeological monuments reflect Greece’s glorious past. Donkeys, sheep, and goats remind us of a simpler age that cherishes village life and generous hospitality.
The Greek people, culture, and climate are all excellent reasons for joining this tour; in addition, our former participants have been especially intrigued with Greece’s history, archeology, and modern culture.
