First Community Bank is sponsoring a two-week tour in October focused on “Exploring Greece and its Islands.” Bank customers and guests will have the opportunity to discover the ruins of ancient Greece.
“As we organize travel, please know that the health and safety of our customers remain our top priority. We will follow the best practices and protocols in regards to COVID-19 to ensure a safe, secure, and seamless experience,” said Dale Cole, chairman and CEO of First Community Bank. “This tour to Greece is the first step we are taking to expand our travel program as an additional benefit to our loyal customers.”
This once-in-a-lifetime journey, scheduled for Oct. 17-31, will explore Greece’s most important ancient monuments, including the legendary Acropolis, the famed Temple of Zeus, the archaeological site of Olympia, and ancient artifacts of Delphi.
During a comprehensive land tour of Greece, travelers will view the excavations of the ancient city at Akrotiri, the most important prehistoric settlement found anywhere in the Eastern Mediterranean, and local experts will conduct guided tours of Athens, Meteora, Delphi, and Olympia.
Travelers will experience the winding streets, vineyards, marketplaces, and beaches of Mykonos and Santorini; visit a farm to see how olive oil and wine are produced; and learn how to cook traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
Space is strictly limited on this tour, so interested travelers should plan to reserve their spaces now or during a preview party to be held Tuesday, August 10 at 5:30 p.m., in the Main Street community room at First Community Bank, 301 E. Main Street, in Batesville.
The program is being developed by longtime travel expert Chuck Jones who, along with his wife Sarah, has in recent years hosted dozens of entertaining and enlightening tours and events throughout the Mid-South region, and to destinations across North America and Europe.
For additional information on how to experience the iconic sights of Greece and its islands, call First Community Bank at (870) 612-3400, and ask for Chuck Jones in the marketing department.
