Source Events All-Gay Greek Islands Cruise aboard a private yacht is the ideal way to experience what many consider the world’s most beautiful islands: the Greek Islands. We will explore ancient archaeological sites and taverna-lined harbors, dine on fresh seafood and try out our talent for traditional Greek dances after a few rounds of ouzo! The MY Harmony V is the perfect vessel for this intimate adventure. Accommodating only 49 guests, she is small enough to give you a sense of being on your own private yacht – Onassis style!  The Greek Islands has long been Source Events most requested destination,  which is why we are returning for the 4th time and have customized this itinerary to include both iconic and off the beaten path islands.  This is a customized, tailor-made journey that you will remember a lifetime.

The Acropolis at sunset. A moonlight supper at the ancient Celsus Library in Ephesus. The sugar-cube houses of Santorini shimmering in the mid-day sun. Like arms joined in a syrtaki dance, one incomparable experience follows another, and your elegant yacht gives you a front row seat to it all. Frame the famous windmills of Mykonos in your lens. Feast on mouthwatering mezes and ouzo under a cerulean sky. Dwell, if just for a time, in the land of gods.
