Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Athens starts from $840 in early October (Aeroflot). Add to that $387 per person including taxes for two nights at the Alexandros Hotel Athens, $152 per person including taxes for three nights at the Despotiko Hotel Mykonos, and $64 per person including taxes for three nights at the Orion Star Hotel, and you're already spending $1,443. For $156 more than that, this travel package gives you the same perks and covers your ferry rides between Athens, and the Greek Islands, daily breakfast, and all taxes and fees.
More Several optional tours are also available, including a half-day sailing trip to the nearby Greek Island of Delos for $55 per person and a full-day sailing trip to the islands of Nea Kameni, Palea Kameni, and the island of Therasia for a peek at Santorini's legendary ancient Caldera.
