My Big Fat Greek Vacation

We chose this trip in part because of our schedule and in part because we have never been to Greece. We didn't really know what to expect but the trip delivered more than we could have hoped for. The history, the scenery, the activity, the leaders, the group and the food combined to make this a fantastic week-long adventure. I now have a much better understanding and appreciation of Greece, its culture and its people.

Undulating around Greece

It isn't just about the cycling. It's about a varied and friendly group, intelligent and humorous leaders, great grub and some history. The cycling was pretty straightforward; the hills were gradual and plenty of breaks so it never became tedious. The hire bikes were OK; they didn't match up to our own bikes, but what do you expect for £70? I particularly liked the fact that we cycled door to door each day. This makes it feel more like a journey rather than decanting into buses etc for part of the journey.

Food, wine and history in Greece

This was a first cycling holiday for me and my son Rob. The holiday worked brilliantly in accommodating our different fitness levels and having a wide range of ages in the group. The organisation was faultless and we even got the best of the weather despite being early in the season.

Wonderful scenery and cycling on generally traffic free and quiet roads. Very competent leader and 2 assistants who could not do enough for everyone. Wonderful food and good hotels.

Cycling in nGreece

This was a most amazing trip filled with beautiful scenery, Greek archaeology and fantastic Greek food and traditions. The cycling was quite challenging (for me because I find hills difficult!!!) although I didn't have to get off and walk or push so it was 'do'able. However, the reward at the top of spectacular views and the tremendous exciting descents made it all worth while! Greek achaeology was everywhere, hotels were great and the food delicious. It was the perfect time to go as I have always visited in August before so we saw a Greece that was green, lush and covered in wild flowers of every colour imaginable. The aroma from the orange blossom should be bottled!!! Altogether, very enjoyable.

Green and Blue

The trip was amazing with excellent weather and views. It was a perfect time to visit with the entire countryside erupting into vibrant colours. Included in this was visits to fantastic archaeological sites that were interesting and gave a real idea of the varied and interesting Greek History. The food was exceptional and in great abundance, perfect for providing the necessary calories to get over the challenging but not impossible climbs. These gave a real sense of achievement in climbing these and really brought the group together in shared experiences.

CYCLING IN GREECE

Demanding but enjoyable cycling enhanced by the archeological sites visited, the myths of ancient Greece recounted to us in the warm evenings and the quality, variety and value of the wonderful menus negotiated by our leader.

CYCLING IN GREECE

A great holiday combining visits to historical sites I’ve always wanted to visit along with cycle touring and great food. All of the hotels except the one in Athens gave an opportunity for a swim after cycling in either the hotel pool or the sea (in one case, both). We were extremely well looked after while cycling by both Christiana and Christos who kept us supplied with ice cold water at every cycle stop along with either snacks or fruit.  Some of the scenery on our tour was spectacular with Mycenae and the road approaching Tolos being particular favourites of mine.  The memory of some of the delicious meals we ate will stay with me for a long time.
