Passport & Visa

In order to enter Italy and Greece, U.S. and Canadian citizens need a valid passport. The expiration date must extend at least six months beyond the date of your return home. If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact each country’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.

Health

There are no major health risks associated with  traveling to Italy or Greece. During the summer months, take proper care for sun exposure. Also, codeine (the drug commonly found in headache preparations) is banned in Greece, and you may face prosecution if you bring it into the country. Consult your healthcare provider for the latest updates and overseas travel recommendations.

Cuisine

Most of the staples of the Italian diet have become favorites in America, but be sure to try those less familiar pasta sauces and the vast range of cured hams, cheeses, rustic breads and desserts while on tour.  Greece’s warm climate ensures a constant supply of high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables. Salads are excellent here, usually served with aromatic olive oil and topped with feta cheese and oregano. Simple grilled fish and meat are also integral to Greek cuisine. Barbecued lamb, squid, octopus, spinach and cheese pies, baked eggplant and zucchini are other common dishes.

Transportation / Walking on tour

Round-trip flights arrive in Naples and depart from Athens. When you first arrive in Naples, a Go Ahead representative will meet you at the airport. Please remain in the arrival lounge, as the representative might be escorting one of your fellow travelers to the bus at the time of your arrival. This tour also includes a flight from Rome to Athens. A one-way ferry from Athens to Santorini and return flight is also included on the extension. All other included transportation is by private motor coach. In your free time, you may wish to explore the cities by public transportation. Despite the famed hustle and bustle of Athens, the city’s main attractions are easily accessed on foot. If you do need to use public transportation, however, there’s a brand new metro system that was conveniently completed in time for the 2004 Olympics. It’s now one of Europe’s best.

Baggage Allowance

Airlines have varying weight restrictions on luggage. Some airlines may impose additional charges if you choose to check any baggage. Please contact your airline or refer to its website for detailed information regarding your airline’s checked baggage policies. Bear in mind that your luggage will probably weigh more on your return trip due to souvenir shopping. We allow only one suitcase per person. One carry-on bag is also permitted, provided that it does not exceed 45 inches (length + width + height). There may be times when you’ll have to handle your own bags, and you’ll find that lightweight luggage provides a distinct advantage. Make sure you label your baggage and carry valuables, medication and documents in your carry-on luggage.  Please note that porter service cannot be guaranteed on the ferry between Athens and Santorini on the tour extension.

Clothing and Packing Tips

To ensure you’re comfortable while out exploring, we recommend packing lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily layered. For sightseeing, we suggest bringing a sturdy pair of walking shoes or sneakers, as well as a lightweight jacket or rainwear. If you’re planning a visit to a high-end restaurant or performance, you may also want to bring dressier attire. Also, please remember that it’s preferable to avoid showing bare legs or shoulders during visits to churches or other religious sites (entrance may be denied on this basis).

Currency

The euro is the currency you’ll be using on your tour. We advise that you take a combination of ATM/bank cards and credit cards and inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans so they don’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.

Tipping

At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your Tour Director and driver a gratuity. We recommend tipping in your tour country’s currency, the equivalency of $3USD/CAD per person per day for your driver and $6USD/CAD to $9USD/CAD per person per day for your Tour Director. If applicable, we also recommend the equivalency of $2USD/CAD per local guide. Tips can only be paid in cash. Please keep current local currency exchange rates in mind when tipping.

A-MAZ-ing

We saw and learned so much, and yet the pacing was well thought-out and the order of locations was perfect. We had enough "free time" worked into the itinerary to rest up, shop, or do local side trips. Fabio was a wonderful tour guide. The countryside was beautiful and the food was delicious! Everything worked out with a single hitch.

 

Hi Denise! We're so glad you feel this tour was well-paced. We certainly strive to include as many sites and experiences as we can without making the itinerary too full. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

BEWARE of your tour director's choices and don't expect great dining. Group setting has benefits.

Too many deals with tour guide and below average restaurants, shops, etc. DO NOT buy merchandise from the tour guide sanctioned stores/shops. They were working together - tour guide got a free gift or percentage - sub par restaurant or overpriced shop got the sale. In many cases I walked 20 feet away to other shops that had affordable prices and the same quality merchandise. The tour guide's selected shops were marked up AT LEAST 500%. It was ridiculous and I was better off finding food restaurants on my own as the group restaurants had low quality food, low quality wine. They were way too 'touristy'. I do not think an Italian or Greek would ever eat at those places. The food was so lacking. Good points were that the trip cost was affordable with a payment plan, being with a group made me feel 'safe', and I did not have to plan to see all the historical sites as it was planned for me. We got in quickly to historical sites with group entry. Tour guide was really working it her way to get as much cash, tips, cuts, special deals, and etc. that she could - a real sales woman/swindler. She did not offer any suggestions for outside group activity eating spots - I had to find those on my own.

 

Dear Traveler, Thank you for your feedback. One of our Quality Control team members reached out to you to discuss your experience. It concerns us that you had this impression of the relationship between your Tour Director and the shops you visited. Our policies explicitly forbid cooperation between Tour Directors and vendors. We certainly wish to know more about your experience so that we can investigate this situation. Please give us a call at 1-800-597-0350 and ask for Quality Control if you care to discuss this matter further with us. In terms of the higher prices you experienced, you can expect that merchandise will be considerably higher in areas with more tourists. This is quite common, and it’s unfortunately out of our control. Regarding the food, we are very surprised to hear that your Tour Director didn’t offer suggestions for places to eat on your own. We will be sure to speak with your Tour Director’s supervisor about this point, as your Tour Director should always be a resource for your group. In terms of the food included in this tour, we regret to hear that you felt it could have been better. We will be closely monitoring the performance of the meals on future departures, and we will also pass along your valuable feedback to our Operations team for evaluation. Despite these issues, we are glad that you felt this tour was well-priced, that you felt safe, and that you got in quickly to historical sites. It’s also great to know that you enjoyed having everything taken care of for you. We certainly try to take the stress out of travel! Again, we thank you for sharing your experience, and we regret that you feel it fell short in some areas. We hope to hear from you, and we hope you will travel with us again.

Best Birthday Gift Ever

This was my first trip to Europe and I loved it, it was exciting & fascinating. My daughter & I were one of the 3 mother/daughter travelers in our wonderful group of 30 ranging in age from 21 to 83. The Go Ahead staff did a great job of answering all my questions & providing all necessary information in preparing for the trip. This included telling us to pack light since only 1 carryon or suitcase would be picked up by staff for transport between hotels, other bags you must load yourself. Also to bring light fitting clothing (it was already very hot in May but cool in the evenings), comfortable sneakers (most of the streets & sites are uphill on stone or marble, the Parthenon is really a challenge) hat, shades and plenty of sun screen (this is more expensive if purchased there) and changing our dollars to euros at one of the many available ATM's in Sorrento or Rome for the best exchange rates. Having a terrific Tour Director like Gloria made all the difference. She was very knowlegeable, personable, energetic & fun. On the bus trips shuttling us to our next locations she provided us with a fresh perspective on the behind the scene dramas of the people who once occupied the historic sites before we arrived. She took us to other places of interest in Rome & Athens that were not a part of our itinerary, such as the Pantheon and the Acropolis Museum. Gloria also had great recommendations for the places to enjoy the local cuisine (fresh, delicious & affordable), drinks, desserts & souvenir shops. She was very accommodating when we asked for a local beach to swim while in Athens, she had the tour bus drop us off at a nice private beach (5 Euros) upon returning from Cape Sounion. The local guides were also great and the best part was not waiting on long lines with the general public. The 4 hotels we stayed were all adequate & mostly centrally located. Our group agreed the Hotel Amalia in Nauplia, not so centrally located, was the best. The Metropolitan Hotel in Athens was nice enough, although located very near sites we visited, is the one that I would change to outside the city, perhaps somewhere along the scenic drive up Cape Sounion. Or better still, on the free day in Athens a boat tour up the coast instead of a bus ride. To sum it up I think Go Ahead Tours delivered on everything they promised and more, I would definitely consider travelling with them again.

 

Hi Angela! How amazing that you got to experience this tour with your daughter! That’s wonderful that there were other mother/daughter travelers in your group, too. We’re glad to hear our staff was helpful in answering your questions and providing useful tips along the way. It sounds like your Tour Director, specifically, gave you a very in-depth look into the local cultures. We’re also happy she was able to provide some surprises throughout your tour, such as visits to the Pantheon and the Acropolis Museum. We’re pleased to learn that you found the accommodations for this tour to be generally good. We appreciate your feedback regarding the hotels in Nauplia and Athens. We will be sure to pass your feedback along to our Operations team. Thank you for your valuable feedback, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

Go Ahead Tours are the best!

Everything about this tour exceeded my expectations. The various sites and destinations were fascinating and we were afforded opportunities to experience the natural life of the people in these countries. The tour director was excellent, always offering more than expected. The tour guides were incredibly well-informed. We were taken to restaurants that were top-notch yet affordable. We didn't have to worry about anything--not even our luggage which was taken care of for us at every hotel. What a perfect trip!

Fast Paced, Non-Stop Adventure

This was my second trip with Go Ahead and I'm struggling as to whether I should try this again. Granted if you like a fast paced, non-stop, go, Go, GO trip with very little free time to explore on your own then this is the trip for you. Our first issue with the trip was the getting there and coming home. We had two layovers coming and going each of which was anywhere from two and a half to five hours in length. Why? I have traveled to Europe two other times and only one layover. To arrived exhausted then go not-stop for 9 days and then travel for 19 hours to get back home is just awful. I have to rave about our tour guide who was amazing the entire trip. Raguel was awesome! She knew her stuff and shared with us tons of information about the sights we were seeing. Also Stuart, who guided us on our visit to ancient Rome and the Vatican was unbelievable in his knowledge of it's history. He was just wonderful. Luciana and Roberto both were awesome too as they led us in our visits to Capri and Pompeii. I do have to say if someone is considering this trip that maybe you carve out your own free time and explore. And why oh why did we not visit Nauplia during the day? That made no sense at all to the entire group. We went there in the dark, had dinner and then walked around in the dark. No shops were open at all. It was like dangling this delicious carrot in front of us but we couldn't have it. This little city looked to be amazing and we couldn't enjoy it. That needs to change. Hotels on this trip were excellent. No complaints there whatsoever. The Hotel Amalia was amazing and The St. George and it's location was just breathtaking. One more thing that needs to change is the extra excursions that are offered. When the guide says that everyone must go or no one goes really puts pressure on those of us who don't want to or can't due to finances make every extra add on that Go Ahead offers. Getting pressured by some to go just so they can is NOT acceptable. My next trip planned is an Alaskan cruise in 2017. I'm not sure if I will choose Go Ahead again or look to another tour company. Overall this was a good trip and I'm happy to have seen the incredible sights that we saw and we met some great people who joined us on this adventure. Go Ahead just needs to re-consider portions of this trip. Allow more free time, visit Nauplia during the day and work the flight itinerary to allow for only one layover.

 

Hello! We're so glad that a member of our Quality Control team was able to speak with you today regarding your tour. We're happy to learn that overall you enjoyed your time in Italy & Greece, though we regret that some aspects of the tour did not meet your expectations. It's good that we were able to address your concerns on the phone today, and we hope that our discussion quelled your concerns. Please give us a call if you have additional questions surrounding your tour experience. Thank you for your review, and we hope to welcome you on your tour of Alaska in 2017!

Roberto Was Fabulous!!!

My daughter and I recently went on the Mediterranean 11 day tour of Italy and Greece and had an amazing time! Even though I lived in Germany (as an adult) for several years a long time ago, and even though my husband and I have traveled internationally, this was the first time my daughter and I had traveled abroad alone. She dreamed of going to Greece most of her life and this trip was a surprise to her for her 30th birthday. I wanted everything to be just right! Before our trip I was a little concerned about all of the political unrest in Greece, in addition to the upheaval in Paris just a week or two prior to our departure. I live chatted and talked on the phone with the team in the home office at Go Ahead Tours several times before our trip, and they really helped me to feel more comfortable with continuing with our trip. As soon as we landed in Italy and made it through customs and gathered our baggage, we walked through a couple of doors and standing right there in front of us, holding a big GO AHEAD TOURS sign, was "our fearless leader" (as we came to call him! lol!), Roberto C.! From the very first minute Roberto made us feel comfortable and confident in his abilities to make sure we were all well taken care of! Not only did he have incredible knowledge of the local area, and an impressive command of several languages, but he was so charming and FUN! He very clearly cares deeply about each one of his tour participants and shows genuine concern for their needs and interests. He had a great sense of humor, was reliable, dependable, organized, and even went the extra mile to create custom hand-outs for each of us outlining local customs, words and pronunciation, and even a handful of his own favorite recipes from each area! Roberto wrapped and gave us each little gifts, and also made sure he arranged for printing out our boarding passes for the short flights we were not able to arrange seats for prior to the trip. My daughter had a fantastic time on our trip to Italy and Greece with Roberto! We made life-long friendships with other members of our tour group and have even created a private Facebook group so that we can stay connected and share pictures of one another...and there is already talk about going on future tours together! I highly recommend Go Ahead Tours, this particular tour of Italy and Greece, and any other tour led by Roberto C.! You will NOT be disappointed!

 

Hi Tracy! Welcome home, and thank you for your glowing review. We are so happy you had a wonderful time with your daughter on tour. What a special way to celebrate her 30th birthday! We’re glad you felt that Go Ahead did a good job of preparing you for your trip, as well as making you feel more comfortable in light of world events. We’re also happy to hear how much you loved your Tour Director. We are lucky to work with such knowledgeable, personable, and overall incredible people. We’re honored to have your recommendation, and we look forward to welcoming you on another Go Ahead adventure!

Such great memories!

This tour experience was fantastic! First of all we had a great tour director! Kostas was very organized, and he knew a lot about the history and culture of Italy and Greece. He directed us to great restaurants and shopping in our free time. My husband and I chose to do all the optional excursions and our favorite was the farmhouse dinner and wine tasting! The local guides and bus drivers were also great! We are so glad that we went to Santorini because that stay was definitely the trip's highlight along with Sorrento and Capri. Our group was well diversified in age and we all got along well. We will definitely go on another tour with Go Ahead Tours in the future!
