Discover an Ancient Greek Odyssey with the Club

Walk in the footsteps of the gods and explore the ancient Greek world on an escorted tour of Greece and Corfu with The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Worldwide Travel Service, Carefree.

The 36-day tour departs on September 5, 2011 and travels around some of the most spectacular Greek archaeological sites before returning on October 10.

En route, campers will have the opportunity to explore the historic Mount Olympia and the mighty Temple Zeus.

Other tour highlights include the Acropolis, the spectacular port of Piraeus and the area of Plaka in Athens plus five sun-drenched days on the beautiful island of Corfu.

Richard Grimsdale, the Club’s Travel Services Director, said: “Carefree offers some fantastic deals on summer escorted holidays and our Greek tour is the perfect example.

“Our Club Tour escorts, David and June Columbine, have a fantastic knowledge of this historical area providing campers with the perfect opportunity to explore and learn.

“We customise every holiday to meet our members’ needs from booking ferries, campsites and insurance to a fully inclusive holiday at the best possible price.

“So pack your bags, set up your unit and prepare yourself for a Greek adventure.”

The trip costs £3,500 which is based on two people sharing a motorhome or caravan. All ferry crossings are included in the price.

More information can be found in the new Carefree Summer Camping 2011 brochure which will be distributed in December 2010 to Club members who have booked a Carefree holiday in the last three years.
