Discover Greece like a local

We know you don’t want to just see Greece. You want to experience it.
We also know you want an authentic Greek experience,
but what does an ‘authentic experience’ even mean and
how do you plan for those types of experiences? 

Visiting Greece is more than seeing the beautiful beaches of Santorini and the ancient ruins of Athens. It is about sitting down with family to enjoy a fresh Mediterranean meal or making friends with the locals on one of the Cyclades Islands. 

No one knows the nuances of Greece better than a local.
s Americans living in Greece, we pair our knowledge of the country with our understanding of the American travel culture to create the Greek getaway of your dreams.

How do you decide who to trust with your vacation?

  1. As an American who chose to make Greece her second home 20+ years ago, our founder Carole understands what vacation means to you. You work hard to earn your vacation, and we will make sure you make the most of it. 
  2. The best recommendations come from the locals, and we have made ourselves part of the local community. We go beyond telling you where to go and what to see. We make sure you’re connected with the right local expert, driver or guide, so you get there. We will recommend local restaurants and dishes to try, boutique hotels that secretly have the best views in town, and tell you our favorite stores to pick up souvenirs like olive oil or handmade ceramics. 
  3. We know that planning a trip for your friends and family can be an overwhelming responsibility. This is why we offer a comprehensive travel planning service complete with custom itineraries and authentic Greek experiences that will delight even the most discerning traveler.

It’s time to see the Real Greece.

Welcome to Real Greece.

We specialize in helping curious travelers experience the history, culture, food, and flavors of Greece with our custom travel planning and concierge services.

We know how stressful planning a vacation can be, especially if you are the one planning for your whole group. The pressure you feel to plan an epic trip can be overwhelming and you do not have time to research, plan and execute a trip to a destination you’ve never been to before.

This is where we come in. As travel experts specializing in Greece, we take the time to get to know you and then we turn to our little black book of in-country partners to create an itinerary just for you.

You are unique, so your trip to Greece should be too. Our goal is to create a trip that fits you, your style, your interests and your budget. Your itinerary will allow you to immerse yourself into the local culture, food, wine and customs of Greece without the unnecessary stress travel planning can bring.

By the end of your trip, we hope you love Greece just as much as we do!
