Our travel planners work with you to tailor the perfect family adventure!

We know that each family is different and we design personalised trips taking into account the particular interests and needs of each member of your family to ensure a comfortable, safe, carefree and enjoyable travel experience, with selected activities that everyone will enjoy!

For us planning your trip means creating your unique memories!

Check our thematic and educational trips or contact us directly to plan the experience that will fit the needs of the group, support and enrich your educational context.

We are happy and proud that we have developed a wide network of specialists in environmental and human sciences, in crafts and arts, as well as of people engaged in traditional practices, as well as to collaborate with important environmental educational centres and museums. In this way, we can create comprehensive and specialized trips that will be both educational and fun, focusing on the natural and cultural landscape, in an international context. For example, thanks to cooperation with the UNESCO Global Geoparks of Crete we have the possibility to visit and use the geopark centres for environmental education, or we can arrange to stay overnight in the geoparks’ shelters!

Most usually, educational trips to Greece and Crete take place during the warm months of the year (May-end of October), so that the travellers can enjoy the beautiful weather and the sea. Nevertheless, each season offers different experiences and approaches, so educational trips can definitely be designed and organised for anytime during the year.

  • We always work with you: We focus on your specific needs and interests to plan from scratch your unique trip. Share with us what you enjoy, your expectations as well as any particular concerns about the trip (as there’s always a solution). Our mission is to keep working until we have the trip that you have dreamed of!
  • We always work with questions: What are the best places to visit?What would be interesting to explore in each destination? What distances do we want to travel every day?How close will our accommodations be to our points of interest?Do we need a car? What activities are suitable for the children or the family? Which treks are suitable for us? These are among the questions that we can answer together.
  • We always work with your budget: Let us know what we need to know to find what’s best for you!
  • You can always start by sending us your request by filling out the questionnaire to tell us how you imagine your trip:
  • We always stay in contact with you during your trip and we support you 24/7.

Some trips have been so much appreciated by our travellers, who recommended them to other travellers, and are so well tested that they turned out to be classics! If you want to think about our classics, or check there for ideas for a tailor-made trip, the link to click is here

All our classical trips can be adjusted for families with babies, toddlers or older children. Do not hesitate to ask us about any trip that interests you.

Understanding the needs of a family, we have found the most kid-friendly accommodation options in all areas of our specialization. Wanting to meet all possible needs, but also to work on the basis of sustainability, these options vary between small resorts and boutique hotels, agrotourism units, villas and apartments. We cooperate and promote small family businesses that offer excellent services and comfort, while respecting nature and supporting the local economy.

For us, tourism is not only sea and sand. It is an opportunity to explore the natural, cultural, and human landscape of each destination. Especially for family trips, we aim to expose the travellers, especially children, to stimuli that expand their knowledge and perception of the world. Often, we try to highlight the invisible, non-commercial side of a local reality and we do not hesitate to bring young travellers in touch with social issues.

What kids like matters! We have a wide range of thematic excursions, recreational and educational programs that are specially designed for children aged 5-12 years old, for teens over 12 years old, and the whole family. Our goal is that each trip is an interactive learning experience and fun! Our signature programs are in the form of missions, games and workshops and have been designed in cooperation with professional educators, while our escorts and animators are specially trained through seminars. At the same time, we always research in order to know the most reliable professionals and providers for children's and family activities in all our destinations. Thematic programmes are private and can be also booked for groups of children.

As regards access to medical care, there are very good hospitals in all cities and there is a medical centre in each village for emergencies, easier access to care or for less serious issues. Pharmacies are easy to find everywhere. Also, Greece now has rescue mechanisms and very well-trained teams for incidents in paths, gorges, caves and, generally, for emergencies in nature, to respond even in cases where there is technical difficulty. We are always in everyday contact with all our travellers by WhatsApp and we will be able to assist you in case anything happens.
