  • There is also one overnight flight from the U.S. to Europe

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • Sightseeing focuses on guided walking tours through historic town centers and at archaeological sites
  • At most ports of call, the ship will dock at the pier so that you can walk from ship ramp to shore
  • Occasional ports of call will require tendering (shuttling to shore via a smaller boat)
  • You must be able to walk 2-3 miles unassisted in order to fully experience each destination, such as exploring archeological sites at Epidaurus and Delos, following local pathways on islands and climbing steps and steep streets on Santorini and in Athens to enjoy fabulous views
  • Your Aegean cruise ship does not have an elevator, and the ship and the tours are not suitable for wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids and walking disabilities. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair- and handicapped-traveler policy for further information. Let our Reservations Specialist know when booking if you require the use of an elevator so that they can work with you to select an alternative tour

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION:

  • Steps and cobblestones are to be expected, as well as occasional steep and/or uneven terrain
  • Sightseeing that requires transportation will take place on a private, air-conditioned motorcoach

CLIMATE:

  • Summer typically brings the warmest temperatures which can reach an average in the low 90s
  • Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly
