Our A+ Tour collection features exclusive educational programming and immersive experiences that you can only get through EF–they are rated exceptionally high by educators who travel with us.


Ancient marvels and island escapades await you on this mythic journey from the Saronic Gulf, to the Sea of Crete, and beyond. Ascend from Athens, the capital of Greece named for Athena, Goddess of the Hunt, to the sacred Acropolis–birthplace of Western democratic tradition. Wander amidst the bountiful olive groves of Amfissa Valley at a local farm, and learn about the most popular cooking oil in the world. Embark on a nautical odyssey across the Aegean, where on-board activities lead to shore excursions that reveal the mosaic of cultures in coastal gems like Ephesus and the cliffside beauty of the isle of Santorini. This seafaring tour is your odyssey through the cradle of Western civilization, where azure waves ferry you deep into the heart of antiquity.
