The birthplace of Western culture, Greece has long been a destination for those in search of knowledge and beauty. Kissed by the surf of the Aegean Sea and bathed in glorious sunshine, the playground of the gods blends its age-old myths and legends with modern luxury and an unhurried approach to life. Walking the ruins of a civilization that once spanned the known world reveals as much about where we came from as it does what we can become, while the sun-drenched beaches of Mykonos and Santorini’s thriving nightlife remind us of the importance of living for now. There’s a Greece for everyone. Find yours.

We begin where it all began: Athens, the ancient and modern Greek capital. Tour the city and the Acropolis with a private guide, taking in the sites of the Acropolis (including the Parthenon and the Propylaea), as well as the stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic Games. Later, explore the rocky coast of Cape Sounion with a private tour of the Temple of Poseidon before embarking into the sea-god’s domain bound for the Cyclades. On Mykonos, you’ll discover the unique culture and traditions of this idyllic island (as well as sample some of its wines) on a private tour, then enjoy a day to yourself to explore or relax. Onward to Santorini, known for its nightlife and jet-setting style, where you’ll again take to the waves on a private sunset cruise complete with delicious Greek dinner. Later, spend a day at leisure wandering the winding streets of the island’s gorgeous seaside villages, stretching out on the beach, or relaxing at your hotel. ... Show More »

  • Kimberly M — September 15, 2017 — Europe

    Fiona was fabulous and planned a dream vacation for us from start to finish. Our guides and tours were all very personable, knowledgeable, and comfortable. Our drivers were very punctual and professional. Our itinerary and tickets kept us knowing exactly where and when we needed to be somewhere. The weather, food and hotels were amazing. We truly had our dream vacation and now need a beach vacation to recuperate from the fast paced vacation we just returned from! Would recommend your agency to anyone! Thank You!

  • David B. — September 22, 2017 — Europe

    We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our trip! Thank you for the attention to detail and comprehensive planning!

  • Cleo M. — September 22, 2017 — Europe

    Excellent guidance and assistance from Rachel Cook in your Delaware office and great guides/drivers. The hotel was nicely situated and everything went smoothly - we thank you! It was our first time on such a tour and we would like to try it again.

  • Suzanne A. — September 22, 2017 — Europe

    We had an amazing experience with Kensington! I loved our specialist Garret. He was incredibly helpful! We also really loved our guide in Cape Town.

  • Kyran D — September 15, 2017 — Europe

    Our tour expert Rachel Cooke was outstanding! She handled all inquiries and requests with great professionalism and patience. The location of our hotels were optimal for touring and easy access to trains and metro. Tour guides Marion for the Latin Quarter, Frederick the Louvre, Bruno Mont St Michel and Melanie for the beaches of Normandy were all very knowledgeable and delightful to be with!

  • Donna O — September 15, 2017 — Europe

    Andrew was an amazing guide starting in Inverness! And Debbie was great for our walking tour in Edinburgh. We could not be happier! We learned so much about Scotland and enjoyed every minute of our trip.

  • Robert Goodby — August 14, 2017 — Europe

    This was one of the best trips we've ever taken. Everything worked as planned, someone was always waiting to greet us at each transfer point, and the guides in Moscow and St. Petersburg were absolutely first-rate: knowledgeable, friendly, fluent in English, and very helpful. Our conversations with them about Russian life and history were an unexpected bonus to what was already a highly educational and informative itinerary.

  • Peter Stephanos — August 14, 2017 — Europe

    Kensington was top notch. Our transfers were always on-time and courteous/professional. When there was a labor strike in Athens, they rescheduled our cancelled ferry and booked us on a flight. We had no idea until they called and said we had been booked on the flight. So helpful that we didn't ever have to stress!

  • Barbara Schulman — August 14, 2017 — Europe

    We had an absolutely WONDERFUL trip; Everything was perfectly planned by Kensington; all drivers were professional and the city guides were excellent, educated in the history of their city and enjoyable to be with. Upon hearing that we were artists, one guide even changed her tour to include local artworks that we would not have known about , and we were thrilled. We have never had a tour planned personally for the 2 of us, and were delighted with the results. All contacts with our planner, Jason Susinski, were timely and professional. We will definitely travel with Kensington again.

  • Nancy Silvio — August 14, 2017 — Europe

    This was my first experience with a totally guided tour. It was wonderful to not have to worry about anything, it was all well planned out. What we did see was wonderful, important and the guides were knowledgeable and kind. When we expressed interest in going bowling in Berlin he made sure we found the best place!! Anything was possible.
