Why we love Greece
Greece is pretty much a magical wonderland for people with an Ancient history fetish. Actually, beach fetishizers (it’s a word, we looked it up on ze interwebz) will probably love it too. Sure there’s the Acropolis and Athens and all that, but there’s also some incredible islands.
Santorini with its hundreds of churches and chapels, iconic whitewashed buildings, and sprawling views of the sea. Mountainous Amorgos (where The Big Blue was set), the perfect place for a swim, some ancient sites, and a little chill out time on the waterfront.
Mykonos, where Zeus fought the Titans (and where you can visit the Church of Panagia Paraportiani and party with fellow sun-seekers). Syros, known for its laid-back vibes and neo-classical architecture. Not to mention Naxos, the Small Cyclades, Sifnos…the list is endless.
The food in Greece is also pretty tops, as is the ouzo.
Our trips cover all the bits you could hope to see, eat, drink and swim in Greece, as well as all of the cool bits you never knew existed. Because we’re nice like that.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.
