This private journey features local experts, chefs, and vitners (plus the occasional know-it-all local villager), and will be escorted by Real Greece founders Carole & Basil Kezios.
Join us as we eat, cook, and sip our way across the Aegean Sea, sampling the flavors of the Greeks islands, soaking up the Greek sun, hanging with the islanders (and learning their culinary secrets), before heading to the Peloponese, Greece’s largest “island,” where the harvest will be in full swing, just in time for the “crush.” If we’re lucky, we’ll get there in time to participate in the mysterious art of making Tsipouro—Greece’s own special kind of grappa.
We’ll sail ’round an island and hike into a volcano, ride horses on the beach and bikes in the village, and of course, we’ll relax poolside in our modern adaptation of a Cycladic tower—or on the warm sandy beach below it. We’ll stay in a Venetian estate, a village guesthouse, an exclusive island villa and a hipster hotel on a hill. Variety, after all, is the true spice of life.
Won’t you join RealGreece’s founders, Carole & Basil on what promises to be an amazing escorted journey?
