traveller reviews

  • I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on. If you want to see the real Greece and not just hot tourist spots which are crowded and expensive, then hit the side roads with a cycle and sail tour. Start to finish this was the BEST vacation I've ever taken. Everything about the cycling and sailing was planned so well and I just got to cycle, enjoy the company and the great views and food!! L. Roe, UK
In the Ionian sea off the west coast of Greece and beyond the southern tip of the Peloponnese lie the idyllic Ionian Islands, the perfect setting for a cruising and cycling adventure. Travelling from Corfu, this journey leads you to some of the less visited regions in Greece. Discover the famous island of Ithaca, said to have been the home of Odysseus, the unforgettable green bird sanctuary island of Lefkas, mountainous Cephalonia, and the beautiful olive woods of the small island of Paxos. Cruising from island to island, we'll spend plenty of time ashore exploring fishing villages and historic sites by bike or just relaxing and enjoying the authentic Greek hospitality.
