Lewis & Clark College Tour of Greece

Lewis & Clark College Tour of Greece

Pioneer Travel Program

Lewis & Clark Alumni and Parent Programs invites you to join us on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Greece. Experience the beauty, food and culture  from a local’s perspective.

Picturesque views of the Aegean Sea, dramatic geological landscapes, rich and diverse cuisine and – of course – the Greek isles. It can be easy to visit Greece and have a nice vacation, but remain distant from the people and culture. This is what makes traveling to Greece with Lewis & Clark and our partner, MEJDI Tours, profoundly distinct. Your guides will ensure you have a special experience while broadening your perspective in the company of Professors Ben David and Karen Gross.
