Vacations are excellent times to avoid digital stimulation; you are out and about in a new environment, so you have far less exposure to the moments of boredom or distraction that keep you glued to your screen.
On the other hand, most of us know how helpful our devices are when traveling to a new place. In fact, smartphones can actually transform from a source of distraction to a superb tool when navigating new cities, finding things to do and dealing with travel issues.
This is where we step in, while you are on your adventure we will provide you with a simple mobile phone (calls & SMS only), printed maps, a list of all the relevant travel information and a disposable waterproof camera, so that you can capture your real-life memories.
Depending on the time of your arrival in Athens, we will arrange for you a mouth-watering meal of local cuisine. Your trip to the Small Cyclades Islands is about to begin at the Piraeus port.
Our digital detox tours are designed for private and corporate groups looking to explore the beauties of Greece while enjoying a ride.
