We Are Family

Every year the same question: Where can we travel with the whole family? Does this sound familiar? Are you searching for a holiday destination perfect for every member of the family? A place where you can be active but also enjoy lazy days on the beach? A place with exciting excursion possibilities that both you and your children will enjoy?

Greece is the answer to all these questions! Whether exploring the enchanting mainland or the idyllic islands, Greece is the perfect place for a family holiday. With a coastline stretching over 13,000 km / 8,500 mi., Greece boasts countless bays with sandy and pebble beaches and offers all kinds of water sports.

Does this sound great, but the idea of organizing everything is a bit overwhelming? Then take a look at our organised holiday packages perfectly tailored to families! We guarantee you varied and carefree holidays for a family trip that will make everyone happy! Whether it’s an family cruise on the Ionian Islands or an adventure-combo on Crete, whether it’s an interactive child-friendly city tour through Athens or a kayak week on Milos – decide for yourself which holiday suits you and your family best!

 

When is the best time to travel to Greece for a family holiday?
Greece has a Mediterranean climate, meaning it is hot and dry from May through to October – perfect swimming weather for a seaside holiday with kids. However, it can get extremely hot on the Greek mainland and especially on Crete. Here temperatures can climb to 40 °C / 104 °F!

During the hotter months, the other Greek islands such as Rhodes, Kos, and Corfu are more pleasant as there is usually a light breeze. However, the hot summer is not the ideal time for cultural excursions. If you are hoping to immerse yourself in Greece’s rich and vibrant past, we recommend visiting during the Easter or autumn holidays.


Are there any family beaches in Greece?
Even though they are not designated as family beaches, there are numerous stretches of beach around Greece that are particularly suitable for enjoying the seaside with children. Mastichari Beach on Kos has a shallow shore zone between sand and gravel, sunshades, and a place to get food and drinks.

On Rhodes, Lardos Beach on the south coast and Theologos Beach on the west coast are particularly enjoyable. Exceptionally beautiful beaches with hot springs surrounded by bizarre volcanic rock formations can be found on the Cyclades island of Minos.

On Crete, there is an almost endless sandy beach near the city of Rethymnon, which slopes gently into the sea. Here children can play for hours in the shallow water.

A special highlight for kids is a cruise on a sailboat or motor sailer. If you travel Greece by boat, you will also discover hidden bays that can only be reached by sea. A jump from the boat into the sea is certainly a highlight for young and old!


Is it complicated to travel to Greece as a family?
Not at all. Depending on where you want to spend your holiday, you can either fly to Athens or Thessaloniki for a holiday on the mainland. Most of the popular holiday islands can also be reached via cheap charter flights or you can take one of the many domestic ferry connections to your dream holiday destination.

Are children welcome guests in Greece?
There are few other holiday destinations where the locals are as fond of children as in Greece. The warm hospitality of the Greeks extends wholeheartedly to children visiting with their families. Even if your little one has a tantrum, it won’t bother anyone here; on the contrary, they will acknowledge it with a warm and understanding smile. Children are also often given small gifts in shops and at markets. So, if you want your children to feel completely at ease on holiday, Greece is the holiday destination for you!

Are your tours safe?
All the tours we offer are ideally suited to the needs of families with children. Your safety is our top priority. On all tours, the parents are responsible for the supervision of their children. Our guides are experienced with children and know how to help create lasting holiday memories for the whole family.
