Depart from Dublin to the ancient capital of Athens.

Explore Athens’ magnificent historical sites with a local guide.
Venture into the lively city with your local guide and visit iconic sites like the Acropolis, Parthenon and Temple of Olympian Zeus. Continue to the historic neighbourhood of Plaka, home to charming boutiques, tavernas and cafés.
Spend time relaxing on the sandy shores.
Wander down to the stretch of beach and spend the day relaxing under your beach parasol overlooking the crystal-clear water. Enjoy delicious lunch at the beach bar and if you’re up for an adventure, take part in some fun water sports activities.
Enjoy a magnificent private sunset trip to the archaeological site of Sounion.
From the riviera, privately transfer to the southernmost tip of Attica, where you’ll visit the Temple of Poseidon with a private guide. With the imposing temple as your backdrop, experience the truly magnificent sunset. Following this, enjoy a delicious seafood feast in the Grand Resort Lagonissi.
It’s time to board your luxury yacht.
Privately transfer to the port and board your luxury yacht for your seven night cruise. You will be greeted by your skipper and hostess, who will welcome you onboard and discuss your chosen itinerary for the next week of sailing.
Set out for the Cycladic Islands.
Untainted by tourism, experience the mountainous beauty of Kythnos and the beautiful Venetian architecture of Syros. In between islands, enjoy afternoons spent soaking up the sun, decadent lunches and refreshing dips in the water.
Anchor in Paros.
A beautiful example of the Cyclades, Paros retains its island charm and is home to wonderfully traditional Cycladic villages, defined by their blue-domed churches and whitewashed homes. At sunset, take a scenic walk through the lemon forest and enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea.
Witness the mountainous beauty of Naxos.
Why not spend the day exploring Naxos’ picturesque hills, whitewashed villages and mountainous lands. Another highlight of Naxos is Rina Cave, which is set right near a secluded beach and surrounded by beautiful clear waters, perfect for snorkelling.

“We recently travelled to Barcelona and Mallorca with the expert help of Oroko and will never book a holiday any other way again! The staff were so friendly and knowledgable and made the process of booking extremely easy. The travel pack was very impressive with our luggage tags, complimentary treats for the airport, and comprehensive guide to both areas with recommended restaurants which didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t speak highly enough of our experience with this company and would highly recommend to friends.”
