An alternative vacation package awaits you! Take the road less traveled and journey to hidden gems of the Aegean deeply steeped in tradition. Avoid the swarming crowds, get to know the locals and craft a unique experience in Greece that your friends will be jealous of. At first you will spent some time in Athens, where you will see the most important historical sights in one go, through a meticulously planned half day tour. You will then be transported to Syros a little-known island in which the capital of the Cycladic complex, Ermoupoli (city of Hermes), is located. Neo-classical buildings, old mansions, and white houses are cascading down to the harbor as you take a stroll around town trying to decide in which of the many traditional taverns you will dine. Whether you decide to hike the trails of Syros to find isolated beaches to swim in, or opt to visit the Archaelogical Museum and the Apollo Theater, one thing is certain; the island's strange allure will make you want to come back some day.

The next Aegean island on your route is one of tremendous religious importance for Greeks. Tinos is the destination of the most notable and still active yearly pilgrimage in the region of the eastern Mediterranean. Many pilgrims make their way the 800 meters from the ferry wharf to the church on their hands and knees as sign of devotion. Combining Cycladic elements with Venetian influences, Tinos has a rare Mediterranean vibe. The traditional dovecotes decorated with geometrical shapes, that adorn the island are a unique sight will grab your attention.  Last but not least, you will reach Naxos, your last stop in the Cyclades. The great local wine, beautiful sandy beaches and picturesque setting will captivate you and complete a beautiful journey during which you'll have created memories you will cherish forever.
