Greece: A Journey Through Myth and Magic

Greece—a land where ancient myths collide with stunning natural beauty, and history breathes through every corner.

Imagine a place where azure waters meet sun-drenched islands, and ancient ruins tell stories as old as time. That’s Greece, a timeless tapestry of culture and wonder.

Cradle of Civilization: Greece is the birthplace of Western civilization, philosophy, and democracy. Wander the ancient streets of Athens and stand in awe of the Parthenon, the epicenter of classical architecture and history. Visit the cradle of the Olympic Games in Olympia and the mystical oracle at Delphi, where legends and history intertwine.

Island Hopping Paradise: The Greek islands are a paradise waiting to be explored. Each island has its own unique charm and allure. Santorini, with its iconic white-washed buildings and breathtaking sunsets over the caldera, is a picture-perfect destination. Mykonos dazzles with its vibrant nightlife and charming windmills. Explore the tranquil beauty of Crete, where stunning beaches meet archaeological treasures like the Palace of Knossos.

Enchanting Villages: Step back in time as you explore the quaint villages of Greece. In the rolling hills of the Peloponnese, you’ll find Nafplio, a town of narrow alleys and Venetian architecture, exuding romance and history. In the mountains of Zagori, traditional stone-built villages offer breathtaking views and serene escapes.

Greek cuisine is a feast for the senses. Indulge in the flavors of fresh seafood, succulent lamb, and an abundance of locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Savor classics like moussaka, souvlaki, and baklava, all paired with robust local wines or a refreshing glass of ouzo. And don't forget to try the delightful mezes, small plates perfect for sharing.

Aegean Adventures: The azure waters of the Aegean Sea offer endless adventures. Go sailing around the Cyclades, scuba dive in crystal-clear waters, or simply unwind on the pristine beaches. For the more adventurous, hiking the trails of Mount Olympus or exploring the emerald waters of the Navagio Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos are experiences not to miss.

Client Storytime: One unforgettable trip I arranged was for a family keen on exploring Greek mythology and history. Their adventure started in Athens with a guided private tour of the Acropolis, followed by an interactive mythology workshop for the kids. They then sailed to the island of Crete, where they explored the ancient Minoan civilization at the Palace of Knossos. Their journey continued with a stay in a luxurious villa in Santorini, where they soaked in the sunsets and enjoyed a private catamaran cruise. The grand finale was in Mykonos, where they immersed themselves in the vibrant culture and relaxing beaches.

Discover the Allure of Greece: Greece is calling with its mix of ancient history, stunning landscapes, and rich culture.

She was right!
Hali helped me book an incredible trip on the Amalfi coast a few years ago and it was the best tour I took in the month I was in Europe! She asked only a few really well thought out questions and then was able to suggest a multitude of tours right off the top of her head. It was very impressive. She even responded to a question I had late one night while I was in London, which she didn't have to do, but was very much appreciated! Thank you again, Hali!!

Hali designed the perfect trip to Italy!
Hali planned our vacation to Italy in the summer of 2023. We spent one week in Elba island and one week in Florence. The two places she found for us to stay were spectacular. The house in Elba was right on the ocean with the best view and best pool I have ever swam in. The place in Florence was also perfect. She planned a perfect mix of city activities and wine country for us. We visited the David at night and that was perfect. And she found us a rooftop bar to watch the sunset in Florence, very romantic. I highly recommend her, you will not regret it.
