Itinerary

Day 1

Day 2

Your guide will pick you up for a 4 hours private walking tour of Athens with Acropolis. A good thing to know is that we will assign you one of our best guides, who, besides the passion and knowledge he/she shares, he is also an archaeologist and you will enjoy your day to the fullest!  

Day 3

Pick up by your guide and start your private wine tour to the Peloponnese.

We will firstly stop at Corinth Canal and then head on to in Argos and the spectacular Skouras Domain where you will take a tour in the domain. You will wine taste and if you wish, you can buy some labels. After your wine tour is over, you will head to Nafplion (the first capital of Greece). Visit the castle, have lunch (at supplement), maybe a cup of coffee, some gelato ice-cream and in the evening, start driving back to Athens.

Upon arrival in Naxos, meet and transfer to your hotel. Meet by your Antelope Travel concierge and check in your rooms.

Day 5

This day we will do a cooking class!

Starting from your hotel we first head to the village of Eggares. Lying on a fertile plain traversed by two rivers, Eggares is the island’s main supplier of produce and a truly blessed place. Of course agriculture in Greece is tied to the cultivation of olive trees and the production of olive oil and that is exactly what we are going to take a closer look at through a visit to the village’s olive press museum. This traditional olive press dates back to 1884, however some locals will claim it has been around since the beginning of the 19th century. You will get to see the tools that were used at the time and learn about the process of manual olive oil extraction that has been in use for millennia, and now belongs to the past. Having learnt everything about olive oil it is now time to use it!

Situated on the same plain as Eggares is the nearby village of Galini (meaning “serenity”) where we will set out on a gastronomic quest with the help of our host and teacher,

Mrs Voula( a local woman who is happy to share her cooking knowledge). The first step to making a great dish is picking out the ingredients and what ingredients would be better than the home-grown fruits, vegetables and herbs found in our host’s own authentic organic farm. You have the chance to see where organic products grow and have a real taste of cultivation and farming. Having assembled everything, we are going to create a traditional Naxian dish from scratch! Enjoy!

Day 6

This day we will do a blend of history and tastes tour.

Naxos Town offers the ideal synthesis of past and present for the traveler to connect with the true character of the island – its rich historical past and current gastronomic traditions.

Our story begins at the Temple of Apollo (Portara) with the narration about the island’s first inhabitants and the mythology that shaped their presence. We continue to an on-site excavation museum and unto the top of the Venetian Castle area where a great art collection of pre –historic Cycladic figurines will complete the island’s cultural frame. From the historical port to the crowning castle, the Venetian Old Town with its quaint alleyways -where the food market is awake- passing by colourful fruit stands and stalls with aromatic herbs and spices, we invite travellers to enjoy sampling of local delicacies including a variety of fine, local Naxian cheeses with a glass of wine and a variety of phyllo snacks. The food tour is filled with the promise of more traditional mezes and local delights with delightful sensations of Naxian gastronomy at a traditional taverna where we all experience the tastes of the island at a hospitable table!

Athens, Crete and Santorini tour

Anthony was a fabulous tour planner for our family, multi-generational trip. He put the itinerary, tours, transportation and hotels together seamlessly and everything was wonderful. He really listens and can modify things to suit your particular needs. Took all the stress off the trip.

Fantastic, beautifully organized trip to Greece

Anthony with Antelope was simply fantastic. He started by understanding the kind of vacation we wanted and then put together an itinerary that was just perfect for our needs. He was extremely responsive and worked hard to ensure that everything went off without a hitch. From the sunset Catamaran cruise and the excellent food tour with Dino in Santorini to the 3-day classical tour through mainland Greece and walking tour of Athens, every detail was well-planned and exceeded our expectations. Thank you for such a fantastic vacation! I would recommend Anthony and Antelope travel without hesitation.
