There are 6000 islands in Greece, no wonder it’s difficult to decide which ones to visit when planning a holiday! Trust us, we just did it and the choices are all so amazing that almost any decision is the right one. Something we find extremely helpful when planning that first visit to Greece is a short cruise, it’s the perfect way to sample a bit of the best of the islands to help you make your selection. Boutros Tours has the ideal itineraries for even the most time-challenged of travelers, designed to give you a taste of several stunners so you’ll know which ones you want to return to for an extended stay.

The 3 –Day Aegean Legends Cruise is fantastic- departing from Athens each Friday, it takes you through a divinely gorgeous route through Mykonos for dinner at a taverna in the evening, Patmos for a Saturday morning stroll through the village streets strewn with charming whitewash homes and religious monasteries, over to beachside Kusadasi in Turkey where you’ll have enough time for an excursion to the historic ruins of Ephesus. Sunday brings you to Crete for a lazy Sunday morning brunch on the water or a rest on the beach, and finally stunning Santorini where you can tour the tiny streets by rented moped and take in the sheer overwhelming beauty of the impossibly gorgeous views.

A bit fast paced for Greece but one of the best sampler options we’ve seen yet.
