Bring Greek mythology to life

Date Posted: 20/02/2015

Set sail with your Classics students this autumn and treat them to a tour of the Greek Islands on a Turkish gulet boat.

Westminster Classic Tours is running a Fiery Monsters: Dragons, Snakes, Volcanoes and Other Unusual Island Beasts school trip during October half term, 24th to 31st October.

Your class will sail like the ancients did into the harbour of Knidos on this lecturer-led tour, before travelling around some of the Greek islands.

The gulet tour includes visits to a live volcano, Hellenistic fortifications, castles, markets and museums.

Students will also be given the opportunity for leisure time and activities such as swimming, snorkelling and kayaking in quiet bays.

The gulets sleep up to 24 in en suite cabins and are professionally crewed using motor and sail.
