Guided Tours in Greece

 

Standard coach tours:

Dolphin Hellas Travel & Tourism offers the following organized coach tours on the mainland of Greece. By booking one or more of these bus tours you will visit some of the most famous historical areas in Greece (Athens, Corinth, Delphi, Nafplion, Epidaurus, Olympia, Meteora, Thessaloniki, Vergina, Pella, Dion ...) in comfortable coaches, being escorted by professional guides and staying in selected quality hotels (for tours more than one day long); you will not have to worry about accommodation, transport or guide arrangements and will have the opportunity to meet with other travelers in Greece.

Most of the bus tours in Greece described below (as well as the 1-day cruise to the Saronic Islands which is also included in this "Organized Tours" section) are also available in winter months (November through March), during which organised tours are the best and most comfortable way to visit the Greek mainland.

All bus tours and cruises described below depart from Athens.
