Today, this area is home to many family-owned Greek restaurants, bakeries, and markets, and the locals are as friendly and welcoming as in the old country!

On this SerVacation, you will start the morning with a wonderful volunteer service opportunity, followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of the Tarpon Springs sponge docks and sponge exchange, an authentic Greek lunch, a sponge boat ride experience like no other, and as if that’s not enough, a coffee and pastry tasting!
