Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.

DO NOT TRAVEL WITH EF ULTIMATE BREAK. They do not value returning customers, they will not help you if your trip goes awry. I am really disappointed in this agency and how they handled my request for a partial refund for my trip due to things I missed because of their negligence. I just went on the Greek island getaway tour with them and spent $3000 to not get to visit the Parthenon and the acropolis when that was one of the most important things I was looking forward to. I tried to plan it on my own around the itinerary but was reassured we would visit it and we didn’t. Their customer service is awful and they don’t care whether you’ve been a customer for years. The whole trip was a disaster and they do not show any empathy for you. If you want to visit Greece you are better off planning it yourself. Don’t book with them.

This is such a professional and caring company. They are a great example why it's best to deal with real people instead of internet searches. I booked a condo on Tripadvisor for a month in Greece and found out about a week later that they had double booked and I was out of luck. But not really out of luck--a friend turned me to Wingbuddy and, considering the various curves our party of four threw at them (leaving from and returning to different cities, changing our minds, etc.), they proved to be patient, organized and reliable! They have an equally amazing partner in Greece called Courmouzis Travel. I had my passport stolen on the plane from Montreal and so was detained at the airport for a day. They did not miss a beat in providing logistics for me separate from the rest of the larger group to get me a new shuttle and ferry ticket. And when we did not like one of our accommodations, they immediately changed us the same day to a very acceptable alternative. I needed to extend my stay in Athens and they were kind enough to arrange their special pricing for me at the very nice Jason Hotel. I cannot say enough great things about them, but I do thank both Wingbuddy and Courmouzis in my most sincere way,

Evia - a true gem on the second largest Greek island (who knew?)

Just an hour away from the port of Rafina is the unspoilt island of Evia. A
really lovely destination for walkers and Greek island hoppers alike.
The final day's walk is long but a nice end to the trip. Meeting some of the
proud Evia residents was inspirational, very versatile and industrious people
from the hotelier who has a farm and makes the cheese at breakfast, to the
fisherman who not only fishes but rescues animals, and the lady who hosts
jazz and music festivals at the local historic vineyard estate.


Cecile was great, calm and collected, just the right balance.


It is rough enough terrain with a lot of undergrowth on the hills, so bring
long trousers and some antiseptic creams.
Walking poles aren't mandatory but I would recommend them.


Go, you will be surprised how lovely it all is.

Excellent trip. A nice combination of historical sites and cycling. Our local
guides offered to provide guidance for the evening meals so the culinary
experience was also top notch.

The two guides were both very passionate about sharing their history and
culture. I can’t say enough good things about Dimitris Steriotis and
Dimitris Gotsis.
It is literally hard to pick as there were three categories of highlights:

Favourite site: the theatre at Epidarous

Cycling: the km downhill stretch into the pistachio orchard

Meal: Petite Planette

Other fav: swimming in the Aegean Sea


Both group leader and support driver were excellent. Dimitris and Dimitris
were a good team that worked well together.


Be open to eating with group. Do some long rides with uphill before you go.

Prepare to enjoy yourself.


Excellent trip, thanks very much.

Our guides were great. They shared their passion for Greek History, Greek
culture, Greek food and cycling.
When I was able to ride down switchbacks and think that it was fun, rather
than terrifying!


I found both Dimitris ‘ to be very supportive. I am a relatively new
cyclist and they helped me get more comfortable with many aspects of cycling.


Don’t be shy about sharing your meals! The guides picked well, the food
was terrific and the cost was reasonable. We got to taste many dishes this
way!


I think it would be terrific if Exodus could organize cycling jerseys for
sale to participants, that symbolize Greece in some way. That would be s
great souvenir for me.

All accommodations were excellent
Bikes were in good condition, two flat tires reported the entire trip.
Some group members thought they were to heavy.
Snacks and meals were delicious, a good selection of Greek foods.
Side excursions good as well
Personally I loved Poros island, the dinner we had on the seafront, with the
sunset, and our toes in the sand❤️


Our guide was great (Niovi), she was always smiling and cheerful, she was
able to turn us into a relaxed cohesive group.
We had lots of laughs.


Be aware of the climate when you are planning to travel. Our trip was mid
September and we rode in temperatures in the mid 30C.


Because it was very warm by 10am, it would have been a more pleasant cycle to
start earlier in the morning when possible.
