Greece is truly a destination of a lifetime, one filled with ancient marvels, world-class beaches, and warm and welcoming people. For that reason, I’m not surprised by the outpouring of excitement that we received around our Great Greece Giveaway. We collected more than 12,982 entries, and out of all of those submissions, one lucky traveler will win a free trip for two on our nine-day Athens & 4 Day Greek Isles Cruise tour!
The winner and a guest can spend a morning sipping Greek coffee in Athens’ Plaka district, and hike to the top of the ancient Acropolis in the afternoon. They’ll sail to Mykonos and wander a maze of winding alleyways and whitewashed villas, and stumble upon hidden shops and tavernas. After a stop on the island Patmos, where Saint John wrote the Book of Revelation, they’ll sail on to Rhodes to explore an island famed for its history, and visit the largest inhabited medieval town in Europe. Finally, the trip will end in Santorini where the winner will lounge under orange-striped umbrellas on black sand beaches.
The Great Greece Giveaway winner will experience all of that and more!
The randomly selected winner of our Great Greece Giveaway is …
We called Catherine to reveal that she won, and she was thrilled! She has never flown overseas before, and can’t imagine a more magical first-time destination than Greece. She plans to invite her husband on this trip of a lifetime to celebrate a belated honeymoon on the beaches of Santorini. Catherine informed us that she had always hoped to visit Greece, but feared she’d never experience it.
Congratulations, Catherine. We’re so happy to help make this longtime dream a reality!
Thanks to everyone who entered! For those of you who didn’t win, you can still experience the beauty of Greece on one of several tours we offer to this Mediterranean destination.
