    What is Homeric Tours?

    Oh, just a company started from humble beginnings that provided travelers with a packaged tour to Greece way back in 1969.

    It now provides 42 different tour packages to Greece alone, to say nothing of its tours to Italy, Cyprus, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Turkey, Israel, Croatia, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia and South Africa.

    But Homeric has done more than just grow.

    It has changed.

    Booking travel has changed dramatically in the last 47 years, going from solely a brick-and-mortar business to a bastion industry of new media and technology. The information highway is fast, but crowded. Homeric has done its part to not only change with it, but to keep relevant the basic core of what the travel agent and tour package industry truly is – a service-based venture that provides value and insight for the customer.
