We'll take you on an epic 9-day gay group tour of the best of Greece.
Ancient Greece, and more specifically many of the islands located in the Aegean Sea, is long thought of as to have been the Cradle of Western Civilization. Greece is one of those world destinations that we all dream of visiting one day. Of the capitals of Europe, Athens is the oldest. For lovers of culture and history, visiting Athens is a must. For the rest, Athens is a sublime city! The architectural and archaeological wealth makes Athens a true open-air museum.
From Athens we left for Naxos, the largest of the Cyclades islands and, undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful Greek islands! Naxos is well known for its beautiful beaches, traditional villages, delicious food, important archaeological sites and numerous hiking paths. While entering the port by ferry, the view is really amazing. On the one hand, you see the Venetian castle, while on the other hand, the emblematic Portara - the island's landmark.
From Naxos we head towards Mykonos. Another destination that needs no introduction, white houses lit by the sun, old mills lined up on arid slopes and the translucent blue of the Aegean Sea: everything you fantasized about Greece is in Mykonos.
Mykonos is one of the main gay destinations in the world and you will be able to see it with your own eyes and it is the most popular gay destination in Europe. It's where the international gay jet set gathers every year. Mykonos is supremely stylish and offers the perfect mix of chic hotels, vibrant gay nightlife and glamorous people.
Welcome to Greece!
Upon arrival at Athens airport (ATH), you'll have a transfer waiting for you that will take you directly to the hotel with maximum comfort. Here we will be waiting for you and it will be the group's meeting point. Depending on your arrival time, arrive as early as possible, and you can still enjoy the pool, a drink, while dinner time arrives.
On our first night we will have our first group dinner in a restaurant, to introduce ourselves/get to know and socialize.
Included: • Transfer from airport to hotel in Athens • Welcome Gift • Group dinner • Hotel in Athens centre
After breakfast, we start by meeting our private guide in Syntagma Square and start with a brief look at a fascinating archaeological site. View the ancient relics, including items of household pottery, mosaics and a 2,000-year-old beehive, all dating from classical times and discovered during excavations in the area.
Continue to see the elegant Greek Parliament House at one end of the square. Pause to snap photos and view the Monument to the Unknown Soldier, guarded by the city's brightly uniformed evzones — presidential guards.
Cross the National Gardens and admire the neoclassical architecture of the Zappeion Hall and the ancient columns that front it — the remains of the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch.
Next, stroll through the paved streets of Plaka, Athens charismatic Old Town. Drink in the atmosphere of this charming neighborhood with its tavernas and bars, and pass the Lysicrates Monument as your guide explains how this large stone pedestal was used to display a competition trophy in the 4th century BC.
Inspect the remnants of an early Christian church, and then follow the Dionyssiou Areopagitou walkway to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, the ancient citadel set on a rock high above the city. As you walk up the slopes, pause to see the Dionysious Sanctuary, Mars Hill, the Philopappos Hill monument and the Odeon of Herodes.
View highlights such as the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea gateway, and focus on the astonishing Parthenon, the Acropolis’ showpiece monument. Listen to in-depth commentary about each of the treasures, and uncover fascinating facts about their construction and history. As you wander round, stop to absorb the stellar views down over Athens and capture them on camera.
After this morning full of history and culture, which ends around lunchtime, everyone can have lunch wherever they want because the rest of the day is for you to explore the different neighborhoods and typical streets of majestic Athens at your own pace.
If you want to spend the afternoon differently, we have some optional tours:
- Tour around Athens
- Tour and dinner in Athens in a traditional tavern
- Classic food tasting tour
- Greek cooking class and 3-course dinner
But most likely we'll continue our free time together and go on an adventure together, on our own, and decide where to go, making stops and if we feel like we can have a few shots of ouzo. Opa!

After this fantastic tour, lunch time arrives and you have the rest of the day and night free to explore the island by yourself or with the group.
Take a walk, go to the beach, relax on a terrace: it's up to you.
We will always be there to suggest visits and optional activities for you and the group, but we’ll probably continue all together.
Included: • Breakfast • Naxos city tour • Optional tours • Hotel in Naxos
Since it could be your only visit to Naxos, we let you choose what you prefer to do today, at your own pace, and see and go wherever you feel like, or if you want, you can just stay by the pool drinking cocktails and admire the view. We are always around and available to help.
If you want to take an optional tour, with your partner, with the whole group or alone, we’ll have some suggestions.
