Summary

Sail across the Aegean Sea on a one-week luxury cruise that takes you across three continents. Start in Athens, where a Local Expert will guide you through the Parthenon and Acropolis — and walk through the Arch of Hadrian, where the Roman Emperor of the same name once stood. Board your vessel and relax as you cruise the sea, sampling the spicy and aromatic dishes of Mediterranean cuisine. Travel to Cairo and visit the ancient Pyramids of Giza, towering royal tombs where pharaohs have been laid to rest. And join a Local Expert at Ephesus, the remains of an ancient city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Travel Director

  • : "I love how guests react to hearing the Zorba the Greek song. It’s amazing that one old song can still unite and spread so much enthusiasm."
  • : "One of the places I love to take our guests to that they would likely not find on their own or when travelling with anyone else is Nafplion, Greece. It's a beautiful seaside town with traditional Neoclassical buildings. I think it's the most charming town on the mainland of Greece."
  • : "Koshari is our national dish, and it never disappoints. Believed to have originated in the 19th century, this vegetarian street food staple is made of rice, pasta, lentils, and chickpeas, topped with delicious fried onions and a spicy tomato-based garlic sauce."
