YAMAS you're in Greece baby! Fly into Athens International Airport where you'll start the next 9 EPIC days. We take you to our accommodation in Athens. Chill out, relax, and soak in the warm Greek heat. You're on holiday after all. Later on, we meet up for a big welcome dinner. Meet your new TruFam, get to know each other over an Ouzo shot or 4, chat each other's ears off and find out all the essentials, name, age, where they're from, whether they prefer cats or dogs. You know, the important stuff!

Have a chilled morning before we explore Athens by foot. We take a walking tour to explore Athens hidden gems and cultural hotspots, a sightseeing tour showing you the real Tru Greece. After we head to the ancient Acropolis Parthenon, built to be home to Athena, Greek Goddess of the City. The Acropolis oozes in culture and history and is the epitome of Greek heritage today. People travel from all around the world to visit the Acropolis, so walk around and take it all in. It really is a Bucket List destination. Afterwards, we head to the artsy neighbourhood of Exarchia. The walls are filled with colourful murals, the local shops are edgy and quirky and the company? Well...it couldn't be better. We spend the evening here for some 10/10 greek food, fill yourself up on saganaki, eat so much Tzatziki you think you'll turn into yoghurt or skip the food and wash the epic day down with a Mythos. (That's Greece's local beer by the way)

Wake up, you may have a bit of a fuzzy head, but do you know what fixes any hangover? Mimosas! Today we’ve got the ultimate TruExclusive for you. We jump on a speedboat and travel over to a super secluded beach where we’ll relax for the day. The beach is pristine and beautiful and one of Ios’ best-hidden spots.

We'll grab a snack for lunch on the secluded beach with prosecco in hand and not a care in the world for our very own TruExclusive! Take a dip in the ocean whilst sipping a mimosa or after 1 too many glasses attempt to build the ultimate human pyramid. What more could you ask for?

Today we catch the ferry to Santorini where we stay in the beachfront area of Perissa. Chilled, zen backpacker vibes full of beach bars, cute restaurants and quirky shops plus...€3 Gyros. Winner winner. In the evening we take you wine tasting. Yeah, we’re fancy. Santorini produces some of the most delicious wine in the world, so it's only right we try it first hand. Watch the sun go down over the caldera as we become world-class wine connoisseurs, ok maybe not. But we'll definitely know the difference between white and red. After a few tipples of wine, we head into Fira, the capital of Santorini where we spend the evening and have dinner and a few drinks. Check out the lively Fira nightlife...we're in Santorini after all...THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

WHERE WE STAY

athens

Our hotel in Athens is in a very central location and is just a short walk from the scenic district of Plaka so is in an amazing spot for exploring the city. It has an amazing rooftop terrace where TruTravellers can grab a cocktail or beer with a backdrop of the Acropolis and the city... what a way to start off our incredible 9-day Island Hopper tour! If you small fitness room and a sauna are also featured on site. There is free Wi-Fi throughout and if you really fancy chilling out, there's a sauna!

 

All the rooms are air-conditioned and have a private bathroom.

From the cityscapes of Athens to the beaches of Mykonos. Our resort is a 1-minute walk from one of the most famous beaches of Mykonos and has its very own private beach!

We really know how to pick the best places for you!

Another incredible resort that is just a 1-minute walk from a stunning white sand beach with crystal blue seawater.

santorini

Santorini is the last stop on this unforgettable 9-day adventure and what an amazing last stop is it. The hotel is Santorini is close to the beach and has an outdoor pool to lounge in before you hit the town or go to the famous town of Oia to watch the famous Santorini sunset.

Greece island hooper
Woo! I've literally just landed back from one of the best holidays ever! The trip was better than could have expected and describe, you get a nice mix of top notch group activities as well as crucial chill time. The activities themselves were all well organised and great experience, standout for our group was the speedboat and sea caves experience plus tubing (basically Ios, was fire) Finally massive shout out to Daddy Drill (will) our guide who is an awesome human.

Best trip of my life 😭💔🇬🇷
This was by far the best 9 days/ holiday experience of my life. Our tour guide Will was an absolute rockstar! He put his all into a jam packed trip from his funny stories, to his coordinated schedules to his compassionate kind demeanour. I will truly miss him with all my heart! The people on this trip really made it magic, we were a little family and that makes the leaving each other all the more harder! Meeting people of like mindedness from all around the world is a beautiful thing and an opportunity to make more plans to visit people all over the world. If you’re looking for historical sites in Athens, scenic sunsets in santorini, wild parties in Mykonos to ParadIOS vibes, this is the trip for you! If I could do it again right now I would! My heart breaks having to leave this beautiful country and people behind but I’m blessed to have had such a top class experience!

Greek Island Hopper tour
I’ve been on group tours in the past, and it’s safe to say this TruTravels was the best one! Our tour guide Will was incredible from even before meeting him in person. He made sure that everyone was looked after, that things ran as smoothly as possible but also that we all had fun!!! He gave us a good mix of group activities but also some free time if we desired. He has a good eye for photography - he knows how to get us to pose for the best shots (someone please give him a raise!!) and also most importantly always made sure we had a way to get home if we were out at night, and would check in to see if we were safe (very important if you’re a solo female traveler like me). Will’s sense of humour is unmatched and I will always remember his funny antics and easy going nature!! THANKS WILL YA BIG AUSSIE LEGEND, LOVE YA XOXO

THE GREATEST TOUR GUIDE IN THE WORLD... EVER!!!
THE GREATEST TOUR GUIDE IN THE WORLD... EVER... that is what made this an unforgettable experience. On our recent tour through Greece we were privileged to have Will as our guide. It has been a life changing experience. All to you #LittleWilly xxx What an amazing young man with the most impeccable manners. My sister and I recently embarked on this once in a lifetime experience. Not only did he meet our expectations, he surpassed it by a VERY long stretch. I will forever be thankful for every single moment experienced as I absorbed it like a sponge. I have the photos to prove it Will. Hahahahahahahahaha (universal language) All 5000 of them. You will achieve great things again. PS Tell your Mom thanks again from me... #lostgirlpaparazzi and proud of it .... and that's the story of how I got lost in Mykonos... and sticking to it... All my love

What an experience
- from start to finish there was nothing that wasn’t thought of, done or accomplished. This was all down to Will - he was such a warm and friendly guide and took time to get to know everyone in the group, making sure that everyone was having the most amazing time. Thank you so much Will - this was truly an experience I won’t forget.
