Greece, the cradle of western civilization, is too often thought of within the bounds of its capital city and a handful of its more famous islands. In reality, there are nearly 6,000 (200 inhabited) Greek islands to traverse throughout the Mediterranean Sea – each with its own beauty, history, charm & traditional food to unveil for curious travelers. During our time together in conversation with a locally acclaimed guide, we will virtually explore 10 iconic destinations through a combination of thrilling historical narratives and a suggested itinerary bursting with extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
For travelers with a limited amount of time to enjoy the Greek islands, our Context guide to these top ten can't-miss landmarks and hidden gems is a priceless addition to any pre-travel itinerary. As we hop between these picturesque islands we will encounter the local food, art, and cultural traditions one simply must not miss while traveling.
Beginning from the superstars of the Cyclades, we will explore the most famous sunset of the world in Santorini's caldera and whitewashed houses. From there we venture through the cosmopolitan ''Ibiza'' of Greece Mykonos, the most diverse and dramatic coastline of all the Greek Islands in Milos. We will stroll around the laid-back car-free streets of sophisticated Hydra. We will head west, to the Ionian islands where the Venetian influence in the local architecture goes hand in hand with the startling majesty of the coastline, where sheer, chalk-white cliffs melt into crystal-clear waters in Europe's most breathtaking beaches – Corfu and Cephalonia. 
From there, we will head north, in the Sporades archipelago, in the remarkably verdant Skiathos with astonishing blue waters – a paradise for nature lovers. Together we will be transported into the past, as we wander the medieval old town nestled on the island of the Sun God Helios, Rhodes. And finally, we will immerse ourselves in the unsurpassed beauty, history, and culture of the biggest island of Greece, Crete. There will be time available to ask questions of our local expert at the presentation's conclusion. 
Led by an expert on Greek culture, licensed tourist guide, and archaeologist, this interactive Conversation will explore the top 10 islands of Greece. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of what each idyllic island has to offer its first-time visitors.

Very Informational

This presentation gave quite an insight into the Greek Islands, history, attractions, and food scene. Dimitra was very knowledgeable and kept it very interesting throughout. It was also very helpful to know the logistics of getting to each of these islands.

Absolutely loved it. She had everything anybody would want to know before traveling. Great pictures showing us the different colors, flavors and vibe of each island. History, maps, transportation, food and tips. She gave, I am afraid to say, a perfect presentation.bravo Dimitra. She was pleasant to. Highly recommend it. What a lovely tour.

Wonderful presentation!

The overview and all of the information that Dimitra shared with us was incredibly helpful! Most people do not get to visit the Greek Islands very often, so picking the right island for the right traveler is critical. I now feel a lot better equipped to differentiate between the Top 10 islands that Dimitra told us all about.

I can't imagine a better way to learn about the options of traveling to the Greek Islands with a more knowledgeable person that Dimitra. I traveled to Greece many years ago and wish I had had the opportunity to tour with her.
