The following itinerary provides an outline of our trip intentions, but some activities may be adjusted a little. You will be provided with a full welcome pack including a detailed itinerary closer to our departure date.
Day 1: Arrival into Athens
On arrival at Athens international airport, you'll be met by a representative from GOOD Travel and taken to your accommodation. We recommend arriving into Athens around midday to give you time to rest in the afternoon and explore the neighborhood surrounding the hotel. In the evening, we'll have a special welcome dinner. This will be a fun opportunity to prepare for the week ahead and get to know the other members of your group.
Day 2: Best of ancient & modern Athens tour
Today you will take part in a full-day tour of unmissable Greek sights, like the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora of Athens. You will also have the opportunity to experience the modern side of Athens, exploring the liveliest neighborhoods in town. Highlights of the day will include:
Day 3: Cape Sounion & the Athens Riviera sunset tour
You will have the morning free to relax. In the afternoon, you will tour the celebrated Athens Riviera shoreline all the way to the stunning Temple of Poseidon overlooking the Aegean sea, and end your day with a bang admiring the dramatic sunset over Cape Sounion! Highlights of the day will include:
Day 4: Project day and nightlife tour
Today you will have the opportunity to visit the organization benefiting from the donation included in your trip fee. Unison is an inspiring community project located in the Kipseli neighborhood, an area that is densely populated by immigrants. This organization offers free music lessons to both Greek and immigrant children, along with their parents, who otherwise could not afford to have music lessons. We'll then have a special group dinner in the evening to reflect on the day.
In the evening, you will experience Athens by night! Athens is Mediterranean – it saves most of its energy and excitement for after the sunset. That’s when it shifts up a gear and puts on its party clothes. Come join the locals in popular nightspots across town as they relax, unwind and spend time with friends, drink and music. Highlights of this nightlife tour will include:
Day 5: Aegina island
This beautiful island, beloved of Zeus and blessed with a rich history, gives a great taste of life on Greek islands. Unspoilt landscapes, 19th century charm, lovely beaches and an outstanding cultural tradition in fine arts and handicrafts is what makes Aegina a favorite getaway just a short ferry ride from Athens! The highlight of today will be swimming at a beautiful island beach and enjoying some great photo opportunities! In the evening, we'll have a special farewell dinner back in Athens.

An accountant by profession but traveler by heart. Connecting with the citizens of the country you visit and being able to donate or contribute to bettering their situation is a unique opportunity that few get to experience. I want to use this opportunity to share this with others.
Cuice spent the last five years traveling the world, embracing different cultures. Her travel mission is to create a "walk with purpose" approach which encompasses a sustainable and humanitarian experience on each vacation.
