Worlds Apart

Hellenic Adventures is your premier travel source for seven specialty destinations: Greece, Italy, Turkey and Cyprus in the Mediterranean and Peru, Chile, and Argentina in South America.

We offer journeys for the body, mind and spirit… for travelers accustomed to not just seeing a land, but truly experiencing it.

Hellenic Adventures shares your passion for premium travel services, and our knowledge and expertise is unsurpassed: first-class quality, attention to detail, destination expertise, an established network of contacts, and a love of these countries and cultures.

Our company founder, Leftheris Papageorgiou, who was born, raised, and educated in Greece, has enough pride, enthusiasm, and love for his chosen destinations to inspire anyone. In the last 30 years, he has traveled extensively looking for the best hotels, restaurants, and people to serve you. He has personally inspected each service that we recommend and his personal relationship with each of our suppliers assures you of the highest quality experience.

At Hellenic Adventures, our tours and services stand out for a variety of reasons. We are proud to have been the first company in the United States offering soft adventure in Greece. We feature a variety of off-the-beaten-path locations that offer opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, or simple walking tours. At the same time, our “classical” trips are anything but typical.

One of our finest gems is our service called Travels with Leftheris™ which has been featured in the Los Angeles Times “Top Ten Tours for the Thinking Person.” Travels with Leftheris™ are escorted tours for small groups that feature sightseeing, soft adventure (hiking and sailing), special cultural activities, and are led by Leftheris himself. Our formula is simple: spectacular itineraries, first class guides, marvelous meals, and sheer passion for these destination jewels.

We offer these same personalized travel services to independent travelers and to groups led by others. We customize all services for our clients who include individuals, couples (we love planning honeymoons), families, groups of friends, and professional associations and organizations. Each travel program is customized to meet the expectations and wishes of the travelers. We organize weddings, help clients select cruises, and proudly arrange bare-boat and crewed yacht charters. In Greece, Italy, and Turkey we can help you charter the sailing yacht of your dreams, and believe us, there is no better way to experience the islands and mainland ports than by private charter.

No matter where you go, Hellenic Adventures has made the effort to find the best and most professionally run lodging from 5-star luxury hotels to villas and lovely, small boutique hotels with high quality services and amenities for your overnight stays. Further, one of our greatest assets is our guides. We have archaeologists, artists, and linguists among them, and all are multi-lingual and fluent in English. They have such pride in their homeland and passion for its history, and you’ll be welcomed as their guest—they are the perfect hosts.

Enough said. We pride ourselves on offering more than just a trip to our chosen destinations; we trust that you will experience them and return home with the glow of new knowledge and long lasting memories.
