Walkers' World 
Guided Walking & Sightseeing
Walking with the gods   

Optional add-on   3 night Island cruise 

2024 Dates         10 - 17 October 

Join us to combine walking and exploring the spectacular Peloponnese region of mainland Greece with its thousands of years of history.  We ramble through countryside where wild oregano scents the hills and sample wine at a vineyard that may have been in operation since the time of Hercules.  Our base is the charming town of Tolo with its beaches and tavernas serving wonderful Greek cuisine.  One day we take a ferry to nearby islands of Spetses and Hydra.

With two guides, you can choose between gentle "Philosopher" walks or more challenging "Olympian" hikes.

At the end of the week you could have time in Athens or an optional three night cruise to the Islands of Crete, Patmos, Santorini and Mykonos.
  • Explore ancient Mycenae
  • Marvel at 4th century BC Epidaurus
  • Ferry to the islands of Hydra and Spetses
  • Hear stories of Greek gods and heroes
  • Dine at a variety of restaurants

About Walkers World Rambles in Greece: 
We spend seven nights in a seaside hotel in the town of Tolo on the Peloponnese Peninsula  Our activity combines walking, sightseeing and enjoying traditional Greek hospitality.

About the walks:
Each day we divide into two groups: Philosophers or Olympians 
Philosopher walks are done at a relaxed pace with lots of stopping to contemplate and enjoy the scenery.  Distance is less than 10 km per day with 300 metres of ascent or less. Our favourite Greek philosopher on these walks is Epicurus who believed in the "absence of suffering". 

Olympian walks are more energetic. Maximum distance could be up to 16 km with up to 500 metres of ascent. In spite of the name, these are not Spartan athletic events and the emphasis is on having fun as well as sightseeing and hearing about gods and heroes.

What makes Walkers World Greece holidays special:
  • Professional guides are bilingual and know their history
  • A variety of open-air restaurants offer a chance to sample local cuisine
  • Having two levels of guided walking allows you to choose your pace
