FAQs

    • How warm will it be and what clothing should I bring?

      Greece's climate changes drastically, with cold winters and hot summers. In Greece from late March to May, spring brings with it average temperatures of around 15C, though the weather does gradually warm up with sunny days interspersed with rain showers. From May to the end of October, the climate is hot and sunny, getting cooler as the year progresses. By the end of October you can expect the first of the winter snows. So you must pack for cool and potentially wet conditions late in the year.

    • Are all entrance fees to tourist sites included?

      Our Greece tour prices do not include entrance fees to the tourist sites mentioned in the itinerary. You will need to
