Tour Details

Our 7 Day Eclectic itinerary is a dream come true. It’s a stress-free cruise you can enjoy at your own pace. Imagine walking in the streets of mystical Istanbul enjoying your overnight stay with your senses being more alive than ever. Istanbul is a vibrant city that goes beyond its famous minarets. It’s a culinary experience with flavours and aromas in every corner. But our 7day cruise has a lot more to offer. Volos in Greece is situated very close to the world heritage listed Meteora – a site of unparalleled beauty that is mostly known for its hanging monasteries. Our third new destination is Canakkale in Turkey, a place with a rich history that offers unique excursions. On top of that, we will continue visiting Heraklion, the city of myths that lives and breathes culture and we also have an overnight stay at cosmopolitan Mykonos and a half day stay at breath-taking Santorini so you can wind down and enjoy a stroll through the bustling towns.
