Hellenic Adventures, operated by Greek native Leftheris Papageorgiou, specializes in travel to Greece, Turkey, and Italy. The company offers a unique array of services including fully escorted small-group tours, called "Travels with Leftheris™," customized itineraries for groups, pre-packaged independent travel itineraries, cruises, and bare boat or crewed yacht charters. Over the past 17 years, Leftheris has logged over 70,000 miles in Greece, Turkey and Italy, seeking out the best and most unique places to charm the visitor. He has begun to explore other parts of the world with the same keen eye and interest in discovery. Additional countries of the Mediterranean and in South America will be included in the future. With his expertise and attention to detail, Leftheris continues to carve a remarkable niche for travelers who appreciate personal service, knowledgeable tour leaders, and out-of-the-way places.

Travels With Leftheris™
"How do you describe the trip of a lifetime? Every island was unique. We liked the fact that we weren't on a big tour... we had so much fun." -Bette Noble, Burnsville, Minnesota (on Sailing the Cycladic Circle)

» We keep our groups small (no more than 14) so that each traveler has up-close-and-personal contact with the guide, and lectures at tour sites can be
more like conversations. One of our 'tour' groups is much like a group of friends traveling together. With our wonderful guides, it is like visiting a new place and having a friend show you around.

» These small groups allow us to frequent the lovely small restaurants and tavernas that the locals do. Our meals are fabulous multi-course 'feasts' and feature the best of local wines.

» There are no hidden costs in the price of our trips. We include tips to guides, drivers, and all cruise personnel. Our guests have been most appreciative of having these details taken care of and enjoy the additional little surprises that we offer along the way.
