This is our most wanted course. Named after God Zeus (father of mortals and immortals) it gives you a ‘divine’ sense of Greece as it combines archaeological sites, short cruises to picturesque islands, idyllic landscapes, shopping in the best street markets and the chance to walk at leisure on promontory capes and sandy beaches. It is a 24-day course where you get the chance to have classes in the morning on any chosen language and improve your skills in the evening through practice with locals or tourists.
