The EZ Greece Leisure department undertook the design of a family holiday in Greece for a family from Mexico (9members) for the summer period (July 23rd - August 14th ). After many discussions on the profile of services required, attractions of interest for all the family members and places in Greece which they wanted to visit, EZ Greece designed the following family holiday schedule:
Day 1: Arrival and transfer to a hotel in the city center hotel (Great Bretagne) and dinner within walking distance at a nearby restaurant.
Day 2: Guided tour by mini van in the city of Athens, the Acropolis, the new museum, ending with lunch in a shopping street in Kolonaki with shopping opportunities for all. For this evening, dinner was organized at a beach restaurant.
Day 3: Departure by bus to Delphi with a professional guide, visit to the Oracle of Delphi and then lunch in a traditional tavern with local delicacies in Arahova. Return to Athens and dinner within walking distance from the hotel
Day 4: Transfer to the Marina and guests boarded a vessel rented specifically for their needs. Sailing to the island of Poros for lunch and swimming. Then the journey continued to the island of Hydra, where guests enjoyed a ride on the donkeys and the sunset! Dinner was arranged at a local seafood restaurant.
Day 5: Breakfast in Hydra and saiingl to the island of Spetses. Upon arrival in Spetses, a stop was made in a remote area for swimming, water sports and lunch. For the afternoon, the family enjoyed a bike ride on the promenade of Spetses and the evening carriages came out of the boat to carry guests to a popular restaurant on the island.
Day 6: Breakfast and transfer to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos where the family stayed at a seaside Villa. Dinner in a well known restaurant in Mykonos Town.
