Ancient Greece Tours
In order to enter Greece, U.S. and Canadian citizens need a valid passport. The expiration date must extend at least six months beyond the date of your return home. If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact Greece’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.
Airlines have varying weight restrictions on luggage. Some airlines may impose additional charges if you choose to check any baggage; be advised that you are responsible for any such costs. Contact your airline for detailed information regarding luggage size and weight restrictions for your flight, but please note that Go Ahead travelers are restricted to one checked bag per person due to storage limitations on motor coaches and other internal transfers, which may include train connections or flights. One carry-on bag is also permitted, provided that it does not exceed 45 total inches (length + width + height). Make sure you label your baggage and carry valuables, medication and documents in your carry-on bag.
Please note that porter service cannot be guaranteed on the ferry from Corfu to Igoumenitsa. Please be prepared to handle your own baggage.
We recommend packing comfortable, light, loose-fitting clothing, as well as a sun hat, sunglasses and a sturdy pair of walking shoes. A lightweight jacket and emergency rainwear are advised. Also, please be respectful and refrain from visiting churches or other religious sites with bare legs and shoulders (entrance may be denied on this basis).
There are no major health risks associated with traveling to Turkey. Especially during the summer months, take proper care for sun exposure. While no vaccinations are required for entry, be sure to check with your doctor or healthcare provider for the latest updates and overseas travel recommendations.
Greece’s warm climate ensures a constant supply of high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables. Salads are excellent here, usually served with aromatic olive oil and topped with feta cheese and oregano. Simple, grilled fish and meat are also integral to Greek cuisine. Barbecued lamb, squid, octopus, spinach and cheese pies, baked eggplant and zucchini are other delicious dishes.
Round-trip flights arrive in and depart from Athens. A ferry ride to and from Corfu is also included (as well as a one-way ferry between Athens and Santorini and a return flight on the extension). All other included transportation is by private motor coach. In your free time, you may wish to explore the cities by public transportation. Despite the famed hustle and bustle of Athens, the city’s main attractions are easily accessed on foot. If you do need to use public transportation, however, there’s a brand-new efficient metro system that was conveniently completed in time for the 2004 Olympics.
Greece operates on the European standard 220 volts.
Greece is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and seven hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time (EST). When it’s noon in New York, it’s 7pm in Athens.
The euro is the currency you’ll be using in Greece. We advise that you take a combination of ATM/ bank cards, credit cards and traveler’s checks, which can be exchanged for cash at local banks in Greece as needed. We suggest informing your bank and credit card company of your travel plans, so they don’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.
Please note that some excursions may include a stop at a market or specialty store. Go Ahead Tours has no relationship with these vendors and encourages you to research specialty items you’re interested in purchasing abroad before you leave to ensure you receive the best quality.
At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your Tour Director and driver a gratuity. We recommend tipping in your tour country’s currency, the equivalent of $3USD/CAD per person per day for your driver and $6USD/CAD to $9USD/CAD per person per day for your Tour Director. If applicable, we also recommend the equivalent of $2USD/CAD per local guide. Tips can only be paid in cash. Please keep current local currency exchange rates in mind when tipping.pool in london between two buildings london cook in front of you london front of house jobs london front of house london man jumps in front of train london theatre front of house jobs japanese london cook in front of you hotel in front of london eye building in front of london eye london in march london in february london in the sky london in december weather london inside london london inside out building london indoor dining london indoor golf london indoor mask london indoor tennis courts london indoor activities london inside out london into the woods london into inr london into tier 3 london into lockdown london to tier 4 london to tier 2 london to tier 5 london into london like a local london like home london like a local book london like names london like tøj like london buses like london and nip lyrics like london grammar london made with love bridal london bridge made of london museum made of metal london buildings made of portland stone london eye made of what is london made of london dry gin made of london is made up of two cities london near me london near toronto london near paris london near country london near places london near city london near river london near university london next to lockdown oli london next to jimin is london next to the sea london bridge next to big ben london hotel next to harrods what is london next to next london areas to be gentrified london next week things to do london of gb london of liberty london of gbr london of liberty fabric london of economics london of what not to wear crossword london of tower london of aspinal london off the beaten path london off season london off broadway shows london off peak times london off west end theatres london off peak train times london off license london on da track summer walker london on da track mom london on da track songs london on da track mother london on weather london on da track age opposite of london opposite of london bridge london out of gas london out of petrol london out of fuel london out of lockdown london out of hours gp london out tonight london outlet london out of station interchange london outdoor market london outdoor dining london outdoor activities london outdoor food market london outdoor urinal london outdoor theatre london outdoor restaurants london outdoor afternoon tea london over christmas london over thanksgiving london over new years london over the years london overground london overground map london over 60 travel card london over the border london past weather london past and present london past and present ks1 london past papers london past and present video london past and london now london last names london past life regression london pro soccer teams london pro musica london pro basketball team london pro lash london pro golf london pro arte choir london pro wrestling london pro massage
