The Mythscapes Traveling Ideal
Mythscapes is the offspring of our pathos for eastern Mediterranean history coupled with our belief that only with a personalized service can someone dig deep into the vast archaeological treasures of an area whose history dates back to the roots of western civilization.
Over the years, being frequent travelers ourselves we came to realize that a unique journey is not just about sightseeing. It has to be about participation, experience and acquisition of new knowledge. It is about acquiring an understanding of the culture, about connecting and developing bonds. This is why we take pride in our local knowledge and expertise which has no match in the field of cultural tourism. For us in Mythscapes, traveling is about improving oneself; it is about moving to a next level. So, wandering through ruins with random tour guides fell short. Hence we thought: what if distinguished scholars guided and provided us with real insight on every archaeological site we visited? What if we had the chance to participate in cultural events like an excavation (instead of standing in line and browsing through maps)? What if we had a slice of local life? What if we turned (from passive tourists) into explorers?
At Mythscapes we have a traveling ideal. This ideal has comfort, exclusivity and luxury as integral and non-negotiable ingredients. We are convinced that one can reap the fruits of the voyage only when everything else is resolved in the smoothest and most comfortable way possible. We want to make the best of your time. This is why we provide you with some of the best hotels, you dine in the finest restaurants with a localized touch, and have the chance to get to know the area and the people behind the monuments. All that combined with swift, comfortable land transportation and luxurious boats.
Our team comprises of people of various backgrounds. Apart from our distinguished scholars and experienced tour managers, local experts and liaisons in local societies guarantee a unique traveling experience. Because as good as an intermediary can be, they cannot substitute a native liaison with intimate knowledge of the region. By having first-hand knowledge of the area, we are in the best position to provide uncompromising services.
This is the Mythscapes Traveling Ideal: merging the thrill of archaeological and cultural exploration with the comfort and luxury of a first-class vacation.
