Tour Tips

  • A river or small ship cruise is a great way to see the world but if you get seasick, prepare accordingly. Some companies will have remedies available, but not all, so be sure to check with the cruise line about your desired tour. Also ask about the route and whether you should expect rough water.
  • Adhere to advisories about what to bring, especially when it comes to clothing. Out on the water, weather will be different than on shore, and nights will often be colder than expected.
  • Take advanage of the offered shore excursions! In most cases, these are extra cost, but they are well worth it. Especially because often you usually only have a few hours or half a day at each port. The excursions will give you a fuller experience, and can take you a greater distance from port than if you decide to explore on your own.

Sail in Greece
Recommend: Yes
If you are thinking to join Sail in Greece just do it! Affordable and best way to explore the Greek islands. When we arrive we checked in on our cabin and that was it. No stress again for our bags, HERA was luxury and i believe one of the best boats i have sailed with. Well organized and flexible at the same time. Days that we wanted to do our own thing there was time for that also and the pub crawls were epic! Highly recommend it !

Best way to see the Greek islands

Sail in Greece Adventures Company Reviews

January 2017
Sail in Greece
Recommend: Yes
Best way to see the Greek islands. Private boat sailing around the islands was by far the bonus of Sail in Greece cruise. Our crew spoke English and made sure that we are happy and have fun. A bit disappointed with the breakfast at some days, but the rest of the meals were great. Met really fun and nice people and bonded from day 1. We also got time to explore the islands which we appreciated as we wanted to see that part also. Parties at nights were great, but we also had the option to chill and relax if we wanted to. Say hi to Ben from Jelly and her squad!

Myths and Mountains
Recommend: Yes
My family and I had a great time in the Galapagos in May 2015 and the ship you recommended to us after listening to our preferences worked out really well. The ratio on board the ECLIPSE of 12 passengers per naturalist was a big win, and so was having a professional photographer like Jonathan Green on board. We were able to take phenomenal photos after just 12 hours of lessons with him – the fact that this was a photography expedition was a nice touch. The work you did on our behalf, your fast responses to so many of my questions, all of it was just outstanding and couldn’t be more perfect. All in all, it was a memorable Galapagos trip. Thank you, Allie.

Rivers & Seas Trips & Tour Advice

The world's rivers and seas have become prime cruising destinations, especially over the past decade, as travelers increasingly discover the benefits of small-ship and river cruises. Small ships and river ships are far more intimate than ocean-going mega-liners, sightseeing is at closer distances, port stops are generally more frequent, and smaller ports unavailable to big ships can be added to itineraries. While Europe remains the epicenter of river cruising, Asia, North and South America, and Africa are fast gaining popularity, while small ships sail the MediterraneanBaltic, and Black Seas, among others, and make expeditions to the Polar Regions as well. 

The Alluring Amazon

Perhaps dissuaded by the thought of piranhas, mosquitos, and the many other pesky creatures that make The Amazon their home, people have historically not made this a vacation destination. But that is changing. Taking an Amazon River Cruise is becoming increasingly popular, and itineraries are very diverse. You can choose between hiking through wilderness or a more relaxing journey with a luxury operator.

The Beautiful Blue Danube

A European river cruise is an experience not to be missed. On a leisurly Danube river cruise, you will sail past grand architectural sights, quaint European towns, and impressive history around every turn. An impressive 1,780 miles long, The Danube flows from Germany to Romania on its way to the Black Sea. One of if not the most popular river cruise destination, it is truly a sight to behold and no wonder it has it’s very own waltz. 

The Bright Blue Mediterranean

The stunning blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea have beckoned travelers for centuries. This gorgeous body of water and the land region represented by the same name is one of the most traveled to regions in the world. If you’re visiting any one of the countries that share the Mediterranean's shores, be sure to take advantage of a day trip out on the water. Alternatively, this is one of the most popular destinations for taking a small ship cruise

Mysteries of the Nile

Sail past the intriguing lands of Ancient Egypt and beyond on a Nile river cruise. At 4,258 miles long, it’s importance to the livelihoods and cultures of the people who have depended on it for centuries cannot be understated. History will come alive as you pass iconic structures and the beautiful Middle Eastern landscape.

Crossing the Ocean

An ocean cruise is one of the slowest ways to travel, but also one of the most rewarding. Feeling the pace and the vast distance, you will get a sense for what early explorers must have gone through (and appreciate the luxury of your cruise cabin!). It also affords you the opportunity to visit multiple countries in one trip, which is a great way to cover a lot of ground, if you don't mind the limited amount of time you will get to spend in each place.
