Picture it: water so turquoise you can’t help but answer its enticing call, raves beginning at sunrise and lasting well into the early hours of the morning, more golden beaches than you could shake a parasol at and sun-kissed skin as far as the eye can see. The Greek islands are every perfect postcard you’ve ever seen. Best of all, they come gift-wrapped with more history, mythology, fine foods, and parties than any sane person could ever hope to consume. Fall head-over-heels in lust with the four gods of seduction: Mykonos, Paros, Santorini, and Ios!

Take a flight from Kenya and arrive in the beautiful city of Athens. Check into your hotel from now until tomorrow afternoon the time is yours to relax and explore. Our adventure starts the next day.

Our adventure begins in the afternoon in the capital of Greece, Athens. Meet with your brilliant guide and get acquainted with your fantastic fellow passengers before heading out for an afternoon of exploration in this vibrant, historical city (often referred to by scholars as the cradle of Western civilisation). Visit the sprawling Acropolis perched high above the city and home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Bask in the wonder of the Parthenon and Temple of Hephaestus. Next, visit the temple of the Goddess Athena, the symbol of Ancient Greece and the birthplace of democracy. We meet this evening for welcome drinks and cap off the day with an optional dinner at a local taverna

We’ll start the day bright and early with a transfer to Piraeus Port. Along the way we’ll pass the islands of Syros and Tinos, making good time for an early afternoon arrival into the stunning Aegean gem of Mykonos. After checking in, head out and get tanning on the beach, or grab a delicious lunch at one of the beachfront cafes. This evening we meet for drinks and laughs at Paradise Beach, where your wristband gets you 2 for 1 cocktails! Later, your fantastic guide will take you on an orientation walk of the town, culminating in a sunset vantage over the famous windmills. Tonight, join us on a bar crawl to experience some of this amazing island’s unforgettable nightlife.

Today’s your chance to buckle down and discover the heart of Mykonos. Wander its gorgeous, white-painted streets, explore the local establishments, and delve into its rich history. Head to Paradise Beach and enjoy a relaxing day soaking up the sun on the pristine sands, cocktail in one hand, mystery novel in the other. Teleios (that means perfect)! However you choose to spend your day, you’re bound to have a phenomenal time in this paradisiac island. Tonight, we crank the party up to 11 at Paradise Beach, where passengers get discounted drinks. Keep the party going for an unforgettable night at one of the local, world renowned, super clubs.

The sea beckons once more and our voyage demands to be continued, so we wave goodbye to Mykonos and set sail for the picturesque island of Paros. We’ll be arriving in time for a delicious local lunch, after which you’re free to enjoy the rest of the afternoon! Take in the island’s many beautiful sights and relax by the beach at this model Mediterranean town, or head out for some well-earned retail therapy. This evening, enjoy an orientation walk of Parikia town, which includes a stop at the famous Church of 100 Doors. Tonight, we offer an optional authentic Greek experience consisting of traditional food, dancing, and (everyone’s favourite!) plate smashing. Finish off this perfect day with a perfect night soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of Parikia town after dark.

Another port, another chance to engross ourselves in new sights, sounds, and people. Feel free to join us for our optional Paros Boat Trip (often described as infamous). Relax with an ice-cold beverage as we prepare a delicious BBQ feast and sail around the islands of Paros and Antiparos. Snorkelling gear is provided for the numerous swim stops should you want to explore the underwater realm of the Aegean Sea. Maybe we’re biased, but we truly feel this trip is not to be missed! Tonight, head out for a delicious dinner. Your guide will be more than happy to provided recommendations if necessary. Later, join us later for some cocktails and karaoke. Sing the night away with your fellow passengers in vibrant, beautiful Paros. (B)

Enjoy your last few hours in Paros whilst you can because we’ll soon be making waves on our trip to spectacular Santorini, where we’ll arrive in the afternoon. Head out and soak up the scenic views of the surrounding archipelago on the famous volcanic sands of Santorini’s Black Beach. This evening’s yours to savour, so feel free to head down to the beach for some drinks and dancing in one of the many fantastic local restaurants and bars.

Time for your free day to explore spectacular Santorini! Jump aboard our included transfer to the stunning cliffside town of Fira. If you’re overwhelmed with all the goodies on offer, don’t forget you can always speak to your fantastic Busabout guide for insights into the unforgettable sights on offer on this island of mythic beauty. Tonight it’s time to tick off that bucket list with an included excursion exploring some of the highlights of the island by night. We head north to the beautiful town of Oia – an Instagrammer’s paradise. Later, learn the fascinating local legends whilst you enjoy a lovely picnic dinner and sundowners with the famed Santorini sunset as your gorgeous backdrop. Then it’s back to Fira for a big night out, with included welcome shots and revelry!

We depart in the morning for our penultimate destination: the truly stunning island of Ios. After a quick jaunt across the Aegean, we’ll arrive this afternoon in the final resting place of Homer (not Simpson). Get checked in, grab some lunch, and hit the beach, where you can enjoy discounted water sports such as tubing, scuba diving, kayaking, or a free stand up paddle boarding taster – all thanks to your ever-trusty wristband! This evening we offer an optional raucous bar crawl to all of the best local watering holes.

Ios is entirely yours today, so enjoy this Aegean paradise at your leisure. Soothe the remnants of last night’s revels with a refreshing dip at Mylopotas Beach and partake in some of the optional aquatic activities on offer. Explore the vacant village of Ios by day or head out into the surrounding hills for a short hike, where you’ll discover the beautiful hidden cove – the perfect spot for a picturesque dip. Tonight, we’ll blow the roof off this island as we head out into town for another epic pub crawl. New bars, new memories, same levels of Ios high jinks!

As the sun rises over immaculate Ios it marks the end of our brief affair with the gleaming Greek isles. We check out and depart this morning, making waves on our long voyage back to the cultural hub of Greece, Athens. Along the way, we’ll share a sea shanty or two, reminisce of the adventures had. We arrive into the capital in the early evening and prepare for our final night together. One last feed is on the cards before we explore the local hangouts of the buzzing capital city!

Today marks the end of our Greek island adventure, check-out is at 10am. Then you will depart back to Kenya. Want to see more of Greece? Why not join the Journey Genius Greek Odyssey trip?
