Daniel and Emma's Babymoon in Greece: Athens, Santorini & Crete

Daniel and Emma have traveled with us twice already. Their last journey to Greece gifted them not just a great vacation in Mykonos and Naxos but also long-awaited joyful news: the third member of the family was on the way! We were genuinely excited when Emma contacted us again to announce the impending addition and set out to immediately plan a babymoon for our happy couple and their future son. (hi, Alex! We loved getting your photo and are honored that you were named after Alexander the Great, king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedonia). Unlike Daniel and Emma’s previous Greek journeys, this experience was meant to be more slow-paced, relaxing, and particularly pampering for the future mommy. We planned the itinerary with enough free time for Emma and Daniel to enjoy each other and relax at stunning beaches, taking advantage of luxurious hotel amenities. Still, we also added plenty of exciting things to do and see. Emma and Daniel enjoyed a private tour of Athens highlights and a welcome dinner at a rooftop restaurant with a magnificent Acropolis view. They continued their relaxing journey with a bespoke private tour of stunning Santorini, swimming in the sparkling sea and indulging in a natural spa, soaking in the island’s volcanic hot springs on their cruise around the breathtaking Caldera. The couple treated themselves to a luxury beachfront accommodation on the idyllic island of Crete and enjoyed pampering with various spa treatments and an all-inclusive Mediterranean diet.

DAY 1-2: ATHENS

Once you reach Greece, your private driver will be waiting for you at Athens’ International Airport to transport you to your accommodation to check-in and prepare for the day ahead. Your afternoon will be free for you to get acquainted with the city. Wander the picturesque streets of Athens before heading for a welcome dinner that will introduce you to the rich flavors of Greek cuisine. Taste delectable local dishes and mingle with the locals before returning to your hotel.

The second day of your babymoon will treat you to a Best of Athens Tour with transportation. Discover the main attractions of the historic city and marvel at its most significant archaeological sites. Alongside your licensed guide, visit the modern Acropolis museum to admire the exhibits the excavations have brought to light. Afterward, hop on your private vehicle and stroll around the streets of Athens, passing by some of its most noteworthy locations, such as Syntagma Square, the Roman Agora, the Temple of Zeus, and the Panathenaic Stadium.

DAY 3-6: SANTORINI

After your short domestic flight from Athens to Santorini, your private driver will be waiting for you at the airport to take you to your accommodation.

Spend the day uncovering the island’s outstanding beauties enjoying precious moments with your loved one! On day 4, embark on a private tour of the island. Visit the volcanic beaches and the charming village of Oia. See the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri preserved in volcanic ash or have a stop at the Prophet Elias Monastery, the peak of the island, for spectacular views of the Aegean Sea. Enjoy a 4-course authentic lunch and finish your day with a refreshing drink marvelling at the Caldera and Aegean magnificent sunset.

The 5th day of your Greek babymoon will be enveloped in luxury and elegance with a Santorini Sailing Trip. Snorkel and swim in the sparkling sea and treat yourself to a soak in the island’s volcanic hot springs. While on-board, you’ll have the opportunity to savor a delicious Greek meal prepared with fresh, local ingredients.

During day 6 celebrate precious moments of relaxation with your other half in one of the most idyllic islands in the world. Treat yourselves to a breakfast on a peaceful Caldera hill, where you can experience the sun rising over the Aegean sea, away from the crowds. No matter where you choose to spend your free day – at a beach with its white, red, black sand or volcanic pebbles or in one of the island’s towns (Fira, Oia, Imerovigli, and Firostefani) which offers an amazing view of the volcano and enthralling sunset views – one thing is certain: you will get dazzled by this unique island and eventually fall in love with it!

DAY 7-10: CRETE

After taking a short ferry ride to Crete, meet your private driver at the port of Heraklion and let him drive you to Chania, a town of unbeatable ambiance and romance. Treat yourself to a luxury holiday on the blissful island of Crete and let yourself be pampered at the 5-star spa beachfront hotel. Modern and stylish boutique hotel offers the perfect blend of beach vacation and city break, located right on a sandy beach and very close to the charming old town of Chania. Stay in spacious rooms with high-quality furnishings or exquisite suites with breathtaking sea views, all equipped with top-of-the-line amenities. Experience pure relaxation in the most idyllic setting on Crete.

On day 8, let us arrange for you a private highlights tour of Chania Old Town and Venetian Harbor. Discover the historical heritage of Chania city, discover the culture and traditions of Crete, live the experience with a licensed professional local guide and explore the hidden spots of the old town and the Venetian harbour.

Spend day 9 at your leisure, enjoying one of numerous incredible beaches of Crete, indulging in its rich cuisine or discovering the legends and history around the town of 5 civilizations!

Day 10 is time to wave goodbye to Crete and our beloved country! Let us drive you to the airport early enough so you can catch your flight back home. We hope to welcome you soon again, for a Family Trip to Greece with your little one 🙂
