Win a FREE trip to Greece and the Greek isles through the “Great Greece Giveaway”

Have you ever wished to walk among ruins dedicated to ancient gods, lounge on black sand beaches, and lose yourself in a maze of quaint shops overlooking the Aegean Sea? Well you’re in luck. Today we’re unveiling our next Friendly Planet Travel sweepstakes, which will transport two lucky travelers to the birthplace of Western civilization — Greece!

Greece unites the wonders of the ancient past with the beauty of the modern present to enchant visitors and keep them dreaming of this breathtaking destination for years to come. The Greek Isles speckle the Aegean and Mediterranean as pinpoints of paradise. With whitewashed villas and bustling tavernas nestled high on bluffs overlooking the azure sea, these beautiful islands are everything a traveler could ask for in a vacation destination. Meanwhile, Athens, awesome and inspirational, uniquely integrates Eastern and Western influences resulting in a lively metropolis, renowned for its food, music, friendly people, and shopping.

This terrific trip could all be yours for free through our “Great Greece Giveaway.” One lucky Facebook fan will win a free trip for two on our nine-day Athens & 4 Day Greek Isles Cruise group tour. All you have to do is visit our Facebook page, Like us, and enter your information in the Great Greece Giveaway tab for your chance to win this prize, worth up to $6,100.

The grand prize includes,

  • Round-trip airfare from New York (JFK or EWR), including fuel surcharges, taxes, and fees via Lufthansa German Airlines

    Ever since elementary school and I learned reading I have been fascinated with Greek mythology, their customers, and awesome food. I’ve never been over seas and Greece is the only destination I’ve ever dreamed of. I’m 60 now and still dream of the day I will step off the plane and discover my dream. As a senior in high school home economics I made baklava for the first time and was given an A+ and highly praised. Greece, the Parthenon, and Acropolis are waiting for me! I’m more than ready. M.I.
