Travelers to Greece face a seemingly bewildering array of options. On closer examination, these tour options start to sound strikingly similar. Why? Because they are.

Greek Tour Packages

Many tour packages of Greece are essentially built from the same components, with a little window dressing added by the tour provider. These include a stay in Athens, combined with a cruise of some of the islands, usually touching on Turkey. This occupies about a week altogether. Longer tours tack on a visit to Delphi, the monasteries of Meteora, or the Peloponnese. It's not an in-depth experience of Greece, but it's a beginning.

The Greek National Tourist Organization has a set of tours that packagers include in various combinations. These are also accessible for the independent traveler, who can book them over the internet, through their hotels, or through local travel agencies. You can find some of these here: Short trips from Athens.

Watch out for This on Greek Tour Packages

Here's something to watch out for on general tour packages. Inexplicably, listed prices often DO NOT include port and airport taxes, though, in most cases, these are known in advance. Be sure to allow about $150 - $200 on top of the posted cost of the tour when it actually comes time to write the check or run the card. Also, high season cruise premiums may not be included, though the "high season" tour price is listed. Again, this may be an additional $75 - 100.
