"I have fabulous memories of our great trip. There were many fun times shopping, eating, laughing and all shared with 13 other women, mostly unbeknownst to me previously but who all seemed to mesh beautifully to create a trip of a lifetime. Thank you to each of you for being part of this extraordinary trip great women join in your jaunts." Muriel

Full Itinerary

Going to Greece is like a pilgrimage to immerse in what for many of us is our own ancient and cultural beginnings. It is truly meeting history face to face.

And then there is the stark beauty of the setting of that great azure Mediterranean Sea surrounding the islands and this country of ancient ruins, expansive and dramatic scenery dotted with whitewashed villages where life is lived amongst great architectural heritage and local traditions.

On this tour we will spend ample time to explore and enjoy the charm, history and beauty of Greece's most iconic islands and top that off with two nights near the Plaka at the foot of the Acropolis in Athens. We have hand-picked our hotels for their charm and location. In each location we are in the heart of things. We had to book the hotels a year in advance to make sure that everything is perfect ! The photo above is taken from one of our balconies of our hotel in Santorini, Oh bliss!

Sep. 16: Arrive Rhodes

Welcome to Rhodes! Transfer to our hotel and enjoy the remainder of the day at your leisure.

We stay in Rhodes City with its well preserved medieval quarter surrounded by high walls with a myriad of intriguing little streets and alleys. The 'Street of the Knights' is one of the best preserved medieval relics in the world. The grandiose Palace of the Knights of Rhodes built in the 14th century is worth spending time in for many features, not the least of which are its intricate mosaic floors. Tonight we will get to know each other over our Welcome Dinner.

Overnight: Best Western Plaza or similar (D)

Sep. 17: Rhodes

After breakfast we will enjoy an orientation of the ancient city by both coach and walking tour with our local guide. In the afternoon there will be lots of time for personal exploring and even going to the beach.

Overnight: Best Western Plaza or Similar (B)

Sep. 18: Rhodes - Lindos

Today we travel to the village of Lindos, a completely white labyrinth of tiny streets lined with shops, galleries and tavernas watched over by its own acropolis. We will walk up to visit this acropolis which was completed in 300 BC after taking 1000 years to build.

Overnight: Best Western Plaza or similar (B)

Sep. 19: Rhodes

Today enjoy a free day to explore all Rhodes has to offer.

Overnight: Best Western Plaza or Similar (B)

Sep. 20: Crete

We will be transferred to the airport to fly to the island of Crete for our next three nights.

Crete is Greece's largest island and also arguably the most fascinating and diverse of the Greek Islands. It has old mosques, Byzantine monasteries, Venetian fortresses and the ruins of an impressive palace from a King who ruled the Minoan civilization from 3600 years ago! Transfer to our hotel in Heraklion with the rest of the day at your leisure.

Overnight: Olive Green Hotel or Similar (B)

Sep. 21: Crete

Today we will travel like the locals, on a city bus, to visit the ruins of the magnificent Minoan Palace. After returning to Heraklion, we have a walking orientation of the city with our local guide, followed by free time to visit the museums, walk along the sea, or spend some time shopping in the market.

Overnight: Olive Green Hotel or Similar (B)

Sep. 22: Crete

Today is a free day to enjoy strolling the markets, sitting at a café to watch the activity around you or visit some of the many museums in the city. Maybe take a taxi to an area vineyard for wine tasting or take a local bus to the city of Rethymnon for the day; one of the most well-preserved Venetian old towns on the island of Crete.

Overnight: Olive Green Hotel or Similar (B)

Sep. 23: Santorini

After breakfast, we will board our high speed ferry to the island of Santorini.

Santorini is an island that is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion 3000 years ago feeding the myth of the lost Atlantis. The present-day crescent shape of the island is about 40 kms wide throwing cliffs up 300 meters high. Several villages line this caldera rim. We are always spellbound by the sunsets here. Transfer to our hotel with time to unwind and take in the beautiful scenery. Take a short stroll into Oia.

Overnight: Atlantida Villas or similar (B)

Sep. 26: Mykonos

After breakfast we will board our high speed ferry to the island of Mykonos.

Mykonos is truly a happening place - labelled as one of the great travel meccas of the Mediterranean. Mykonos town is a stunningly picturesque Cycladic town with a maze of tiny streets and whitewashed steps, lanes, houses and churches gathered around its harbour in the middle of a wide bay. Its wonderful streets lined with boutiques, shops, art galleries, cafes, stylish bars and restaurants still retain its traditional Cycladic architecture style and character. It is so much fun to purposely get lost in the back streets. The shopping is pretty amazing too.
Transfer to hotel, time for personal exploration. In the early evening we will venture out for "A Taste of Mykonos".

Overnight: Leto Hotel or Similar (B, D)

Sep. 27: Mykonos

After breakfast we will take a short ferry ride to the island of Delos for our private guided tour.

In the ancient times, the myth of god Apollo, god of light, and goddess Artemis having been born there rendered the island sacred: no mortal would ever be allowed to be born on its land. But, a cradle of gods as the island has been, no mortals would ever be allowed to die on it either. So, apart from it being a conspicuous religious and economic centre, the island had also been exclusive in that: even during the years of peak of the Delian Alliance, women on the brink of childbirth and people close to dying would be carried to the neighbouring island of Rineia. The whole of the known world of that age was aware of the sacredness of the island and of its uniqueness. After the return ferry ride back to Mykonos, the afternoon is free to explore.

Overnight: Leto Hotel or Similar (B)

Sep. 28: Mykonos

Today is a free day! It is a great day to relax poolside or head over to the beach and go for a refreshing swim in the sea. Maybe wander through the winding streets in search of Petros the Pelican - yes he does exist!

Overnight: Leto Hotel or similar (B)

Sep. 29: Athens

Enjoy breakfast then transfer to the airport to fly to Athens.

Now that we are familiar with Greek history and culture it's time to enjoy the big one! We will stay in the area of the Plaka once the ancient neighbourhood of the ordinary people at the foot of the great Acropolis inhabited by the privileged and rulers and architects of Greek civilization. Everything is within a few blocks of our hotel. This will be a great opportunity to round out our Greek experience, do some last minute shopping and to soak up the last bit of this country like no other. Transfer to the hotel, then let's go for a walk.

Overnight: Electra Hotel or Similar (B)

Sep. 30: Athens

Today, we enjoy an orientation of Athens, a visit to the Acropolis and then to the Acropolis Museum, with our local guide. The afternoon is yours to do as you please.

How far in advance do I need to reserve my trip?

It is never too early to reserve your space on your trip of choice. Some of our trips book up several months or even a year in advance.  Please call us or e-mail to reserve your place as we would not want you to be disappointed.

What will the food be like?

We feature both simple, nutritious local foods and gourmet meals, depending on the destination. We always try to vary the diet so that our participants can learn about and enjoy the local cuisine. When meals are not included, we make sure that there are a number of restaurants in the immediate area of our accommodation to give our travelers the chance to enjoy searching out local restaurant experiences.

Who do I eat meals with?

You'll never dine alone. Our guides always offer the option for you and the group to join them for meals. 

Can I come alone?

Most of the women who travel with us book as a single person. If you are travelling with a friend, you can of course share a room with them. It is part of our mission to provide women the opportunity to meet new friends while enjoying a wonderful travel experience.

What is the Guaranteed Share Rate?

Most women who travel with us come individually. Some want a single room, and some prefer to share a twin room. On many tours we offer a 'Guaranteed Share Rate' which means two singles will share a twin bedded room. In the case where there are not enough to share a twin room, we pay the single supplement difference for you. This Guaranteed Share Rate allows you to book with us knowing that you will be assured the lower shared twin cost.

This depends on the tour you select. Our groups are always small, however, from 6 to 14 participants.

Our tours are escorted by a Today's Woman Traveller staff member. Our team of ladies are all experienced tour escorts.

This depends on the trip you select. We accommodate women of different levels and abilities. Our walking tours are designed to suit all levels of walkers. You don't have to be in top shape, but you will enjoy it more if you are reasonably fit. Many women surprise themselves at their new-found strengths and abilities!
