Trip itinerary

Day 1

YAMAS you're in Greece baby! Fly into Athens International Airport where you'll start the next 9 EPIC days. We take you to our accommodation in Athens. Chill out, relax, and soak in the warm Greek heat. You're on holiday after all. Later on, we meet up for a big welcome dinner. Meet your new TruFam, get to know each other over an Ouzo shot or 4, chat each other's ears off and find out all the essentials, name, age, where they're from, whether they prefer cats or dogs. You know, the important stuff!

Day 2

Have a chilled morning before we head out to ancient Acropolis Parthenon, built to be home to Athena, Greek Goddess of the City. The Acropolis oozes in culture and history and is the epitome of Greek heritage today. People travel from all around the world to visit the Acropolis, so walk around and take it all in. It really is a Bucket List destination. Afterwards, we head to the artsy neighbourhood of Exarchia. The walls are filled with colourful murals, the local shops are edgy and quirky and the company? Well...it couldn't be better. We spend the evening here for some 10/10 greek food, fill yourself up on saganaki, eat so much Tzatziki you think you'll turn into yoghurt or skip the food and wash the epic day down with a Mythos. (That's Greece's local beer by the way)

Day 3

We're up early, and we're off to Mykonos! We grab our transport down to the port where we hop on their ferry to our next destination. We arrive in the afternoon and check into our accommodation - A floating hostel. Yeah, you heard us! We're staying on a converted boat hostel! The hostel is a bucket list experience in itself. We're here for the next few nights so make yourselves at home. The ferry is just a short crossing to the old town where you'll find plenty of traditional cobbled greek streets, bars and restaurants. In the evening, we head to get a taste of Mykonos lively nightlife!

Day 4

We have a free morning before we're off on a sightseeing tour in the afternoon. We're taking you to THE hotspots, the hidden gems and everything in between, we're hitting up golden sand beaches, taking you to the best viewpoints before heading to Paradise Beach Club. We're practically VIPs. We spend the day, sunbathing, dancing ridiculously around to the sounds of the resident DJ sipping on mojito after mojito. Is this paradise? Well yes, quite literally it is. The sun goes down as we party the night away. We grab dinner and see where the night takes us!

Day 5

We're up early and off to the famous island of Ios! It's time to let loose! We check into our ultra cool party hotel. Ios is known as one of the best islands to visit in Greece, and we're about to show you why! Spend the afternoon wandering the white and blue alleyways of the cobbled greek streets, with every twist and turn you'll find more and more beauty. Whatever you fancy Ios has it. In the evening we freshen up before we head out to Ios' famous square! We're going on a bar crawl baby, a TruTravels bar crawl that is! We take you to the best spots with the best bartenders. Dance on the tables, party till the sun comes up, bust out all those dance moves you've been practising. Will this night go down in history? Hell yea! We don't do average, we do legendary.

Day 6

Wake up, you may have a bit of a fuzzy head, so grab an iced coffee and reenergize because today we’ve got the ultimate TruExclusive for you. We’re heading to a super secluded beach where we’ll relax and nurse off our hangovers before devouring a delicious picnic lunch. Spend the afternoon on a sun lounger, take a dip in the ocean or participate in a game of beach volleyball, hey whatever you fancy we’re in paradise, on our very own quiet beach, with a picnic of delicious greek food. What more could you ask for? The evening is ours to spend as we please, Ios has some of the best restaurants in the whole of Greece, so we hit up a personal favourite. After dinner, we can take the night any direction we'd like. Did someone say - ROUND 2?

Day 7

Today we catch the ferry to Santorini where we stay in the beachfront area of Kamari. Chilled, zen backpacker vibes full of beach bars, cute restaurants and quirky shops plus...€3 Gyros. Winner winner. In the evening we take you wine tasting. Yeah, we fancy. Santorini produces some of the most delicious wine in the world, so it's only right we try it first hand. Watch the sun go down over the caldera as we become world-class wine connoisseurs, ok maybe not. But we'll definitely know the difference between white and red. After a few tipples of wine, we head into Fira, the capital of Santorini where we spend the evening and have dinner and a few drinks. Check out the lively Fira nightlife...we're in Santorini after all...THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

Day 8

Today we have a full day exploring Santorini and the day is yours to spend as you please. Hit up some of the local beaches, visit Perrissa, or head on over to Black Beach. If you've got some extra energy, take a walk up to Ancient Thira ruins located just off Kamari. In the late afternoon, we get dolled up as we head off to Oia. Walk along the promenade as you watch the sun go down with your TruFam. It's golden hour! Grab those ultimate insta snaps you've seen ALL over Instagram and watch the sun go down to the stunning view of the famous blue dome churches and whitewashed buildings. You haven't seen a sunset unless you've seen an Oia sunset. After a magical evening, we catch our ride back to Fira Town, where we party for our last night together!

Day 9

All good things must come to an end, and after 9 days it's time to say goodbye. It's checkout day. We'll miss you, just like you'll miss us. Your Travel Ninja is on hand for any help with onward travel plans or if you're staying on in Greece longer and need some advice! Hey, if you just need a sadness induced hug, they're there for that too. We're bad at goodbye, so we'll say see you next time!

Are flights & insurance included?

While we would love to include flights and insurance in our trip packages, it is not feasible to have a fixed price due to the diverse destinations, trip durations, and individual coverage needs of our travellers from around the globe. However, once you register for the trip, we will assign you a dedicated Travel Concierge. They will work closely with you to arrange the ideal flights and insurance tailored to your specific adventure. Rest assured, our team is here to ensure you have a smooth and hassle-free travel experience from start to finish!

Why should I book now?

After the last unexpected disruption to travel caused by the..c word..people are now more eager than ever to venture out and explore the world, determined not to miss out on any experiences. Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12+ months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global. This is where you will find exclusive Marketplace Deals, a unique social network to connect you with other like-minded Global Travellers, access to our Academy with an ever-growing range of skills & languages, and so much more. Think all of your favourite apps merged into one, but like, better? Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend or partner?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together! But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join. And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

Can I bring my pet along?

At Global Work & Travel, we share a deep love for animals and fully understand the special bond you have with your pet. We recognise the challenges of embarking on a trip without them. Due to travel restrictions, requirements, and limited pet-friendly accommodations among our host organisations, we regretfully cannot facilitate their inclusion in the journey. However, many of our customers choose to entrust their pets to a family member or friend, embark on their adventure, and return home to wagging tails and furry cuddles.

What happens if I need to cancel my trip?

We know that life can get in the way of travel, so all our trips come with a great deal of flexibility. In most cases, if you cannot travel on your selected date, you can place your trip on hold to deal with whatever is holding you back, and continue in the future without incurring any penalty. You may also have the option of transferring to an entirely different trip and destination as well, or even transferring your trip to a friend or family member. In the event that you need to outright cancel your trip, if you give us 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put toward any other trip that we offer, including tours through third-party providers, as well as holidays through DealsAway.com, and is valid for 2 years from date of issue. As international travel can be complex, your options are based on the progress of your trip organisation and our support team can assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
