About Greece

Greece has much to offer its visitors - ancient sites, sweeping coastlines, secluded beaches, turquoise waters, characterful islands, a mouthwatering cuisine and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.

Go island-hopping, explore the world-renowned archaeological sites, go off the beaten track in the Peloponnese, or join a small group walking tour. Your holiday can be as adventurous and diverse as you wish.

Greece's magical scenery and legendary hospitality are unquestionably real, as you'll confirm when you have explored a country, still waiting to be rediscovered.

Tailor Made Holidays

We can put together a completely tailor made holiday for you and your budget, pre-booking as much as you wish -  this can include a whole range of accommodation, private transfers, car hire, ferries and flights within Greece plus excursions and activities; our office in Greece will be there to give you peace of mind and assistance if you need it during your holiday.

Self Drive Holidays

Explore famous sights and lesser-known villages, escape from busy resorts and experience the freedom of the road on one of our Fly Drive Holidays. Discover the hidden wonders of Greece's northwest frontier - Enticing Epirus will see you visiting Meteora, the picturesque town of Ioannina, mountains and a National Park. Treasures of the Peloponnese gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the this area, including the world-famous Corinth Canal, Epidavrus and Nafplion. On the Classical Roads of Greece you can discover world-renowned ancient sites. Crete, the largest island in Greece, is like a mini country; packed with history, ancient civilisations and fantastic scenery a fly drive here may whet your appetite for a longer holiday in the future.

If you wish to have a more leisurely exploration of Greece, or you wish to include different sights then we can put together a bespoke itinerary for you.

Guided Tours of Greece

Rediscover the World is proud to offer its customers excellent Guided Tours of Greece - group tours of the classical and historical sites of Greece. These cultural tours all have a qualified English-speaking guide; however if you are looking for a more independent holiday then we can also offer a completely tailor made itinerary. There are so many ancient and natural sites that it is impossible to cover them all but each of these tours provides a good introduction to the country and its history and culture.

Short Breaks to Greece

If you have limited time, why not enjoy a short break? Flights are frequent to the main cities and to some of the larger islands so it's easy to go for a long weekend to explore, relax and enjoy some fabulous Greek food!

At Rediscover we have always loved and appreciated the real Greece and believe that our experience and contacts in Greece enable us to bring you an unrivalled choice of short breaks.  Why not spend a weekend soaking up the atmosphere and antiquities in Athens - the Acropolis Museum is well worth a visit - or go further afield to see Olympia and Delphi, perhaps you might like to pop across to the Saronic Islands (Aegina, Poros or Hydra) for a taste of lesser-explored island life.

Island Hopping in Greece

Greece has 3,000 islands so it seems a bit of a shame to explore only one during your holiday! Island hopping is incredibly popular in Greece as each island has something different to offer-  from the party atmosphere of Mykonos and the picture-postcard beauty of Santorini, to traditional Aegina Town and traffic-free Hydra, you are sure to find an island to suit you.

Island hopping is often regarded as being the domain of the truly independent traveller; however, cancelled ferries, missed connections and a lack of accommodation (especially in high season) can often thwart the best laid plans. That is where we can help. We can smooth the way for your island hopping experience by pre-booking ferries, accommodation, transfers, even sightseeing tours to help you get the most out of your holiday.

Walking Holidays in Greece

Hiking in Greece has become extremely popular: discover Mount Olympus, the home of the ancient gods and goddesses & the towering Meteora Monasteries; traditional villages in Zagori, the dramatic beauty of the Vikos-Aoos National Park (the centrepiece of which is the spectacular Vikos Gorge) and the glorious Pelion Peninsula (Mamma Mia was filmed here!). These trek itineraries can be done either as a small group or as a private trek (minimum numbers apply). On Crete we also offer a self-guided hiking itinerary covering much of the west and south of the island.

Food and Drink tours in Northern Greece

Here at Rediscover the World we're very partial to Greek food and drink! We have therefore teamed up with Joysters in Greece to offer our customers a week's tour in Northern Greece with the emphasis on local food and wine, as well as a shorter tour which can be undertaken any time from May - October and which is perfect for a group of friends or a large family. Καλή όρεξη!
