M/S Erato
 

This is truly one of the most amazing ways to experience the true essence and hospitality of Greece and its people!

We will arrive in Athens and for the next 6 days we'll have free time  to relax and unwind on our own 85' Motor Sailor. The tour is limited  to 10 passengers, and with a crew of 4, we will have nothing to concern ourselves with except to have an unforgettable experience!

During our time on the cruise, we'll visit Korinth, Epidaurus, Naplion, Mycenae, and the islands of Spetsus, Hydra, Aegina and Poros.

After our cruise, we are on to Mykonos, Delos and Santorini for the next few days. Our tour will end in Athens with visits to the
Parthenon, the new Acropolis Museum, the Plaka and a day trip to Delphi to visit the historic site.

During the entire tour, our goal is to keep local customs, traditions and food as a part of your experience.

This tour, as usual, includes transportation in Greece, most
meals, guides, taxes, gratuities, hotels (4* or best available) and plenty of free time to explore on your own if you wish.
