Wonderful tour. Our guide, Stassis/ Eustace was a veritable fountain of knowledge on Greek history, and kept us engrossed with his tales, infused with a very subtle and contemporary sense of humour. The hotels we stayed in were excellent, both in terms of location and facilities provided, as well as the cuisine. Enjoyed some local cuisine at the various restaurants we stopped at for lunch. A truly unforgettable experience.
It was excellent!
This is a very well organized tour that took us to visit key centers of Greek ancient cultural history.
The trip was made extraordinary thanks to our tour guide, Lila with her very special humor. We stayed in Amalia hotels on all three nights. The breakfast and dinner buffets were very good, although we think the best is still the Amalia in Athens. By driving in a bus we could see the beautiful panoramic seas, the Ionian on the west, and the Aegean on the east of Athens. We recommend very good walking shoes to climb up to see the ancient monuments in Olympia, Delphi and Kalambaka. We also recommend bringing tissue papers because Kalambaka nunnery has extremely clean squat toilets with water but no Tpaper.
Amazing tour of Ancient Greece with the best guide that one could have asked for. She was very passionate and had thorough knowledge of Greece history which added to the charm in every place. We got excellent food along the way and the hotels were excellent with amazing views/décor and free wifi. All the places were very impressive - Stadium of Olympia, theatre at Epidaurus, sunset at Delphi and the incredible monasteries and views at Meteora were my favorites. The countryside was also amazing throughout the trip and the guide alerted us to spectacular views. We were a group of about 24 in a bus and got along great with each other. However, the bus got full in the last day and less enjoyable in several ways - a minor setback in an otherwise awesome tour. One thought to offset this setback is to limit the number in the bus.
Glad to have picked the 4-day tour instead of the 3-day tour as you do not want to miss out Meteora.
Simply brilliant tour, super guide and driver worked to make this a superbly informative and enjoyable trip.
A highlight? Possibly Mycenae stands out as the best among equals, but the museum at Delphi is astonishing and so is much else.....
We had a great guide and an excellent driver. The trip is properly planned, everything is thought about. Thank you very much for great experience, we are sure to travel with you again!
Our guide George was a great wealth of information about Greece, both classical and modern.
He is a great guy.
This tour was absolutely amazing and well worth the money spent. Our tour guide, Hara and bus driver Alekos were two wonderful people. Hara was a font of knowledge who shared many stories relating to the history, geography as well as myths and legends of the sites we visited. Though some days were very long i thought we spent a good deal of time visiting the archaeological sites and museums. The highlight for me was visiting two of the Holy Monasteries in the Meteora Great Meteoron and St. Stephan. The Meteora were just amazing and though the visibility was diminished due to morning fog, made the visit even more magical. Highly recommend this tour and any others offered by Viator. Great stuff.
Despite the fact that I was most excited to see the islands on our trip, this was an amazing way to see the mainland - and it is all incredibly beautiful. I'm not much of a history buff myself, but had hoped that we would love it as much as all of the other reviewers. It was fantastic! Our guide made all of it fascinating for us, as she was very knowledgable, and all of our stops were more beautiful than the next. Meteora was actually our favorite, as the pictures just don't do it justice. This is a must-do in addition to seeing the islands. Insider tip: sit on the left side of the bus for the majority of the trip if you have a DSLR camera and/or a camera with a high enough shutter speed to capture the countryside as you travel. It's breathtaking!
To see Delphi and trhen Meteora is one of those rare sites in the world. The trip to Delphi was very good and the ruins were excellent but the highlight was to see the monasteries at Meteora perched on the very top of the mammoth rocks. Nothing like it. Also, the guide Irene was one of the best we have every had. We would recommend this trip without qualification
Doing what: 3-Day Trip to Delphi and Meteora from Athens
Incredible tour, due largely to our guide, Irine. Her passion for history was infectious. She walked us extensively through every site and every museum, narrating the significance of each place and object in immense detail. Even while on the bus, she entertained us with historical anecdotes. The sites themselves were breathtaking. The accommodations and meals were excellent. Frequent stops made the bus journey tolerable. I'm not a fan of bus tours but I would highly recommend taking this one!
Tour guide was wonderful. Perfect classic addition to Athens.
It has been a great tour. Kathalina has been very kind and knowledgable. Highly recommended.
Excellent guide. Great meals and hotels. Sites were the perfect choice for such a limited time trip. No complaints!
The local tour operator runs a professional operation: friendly, timely and safe. Our driver Dimitri and guide Lila were excellent hosts. Though Lila is uptight, she does a great job. Thank you.
Our tour guide, Joy, was very knowledgable, well organized and delightful. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see and learn about classical Greece.
Great bus, nice group, plenty of time for bio-breaks, and Eirene was a wonderful tour leader.
Excellent tour and would highly recommend this tour
all the facilitates we used in 4 days were gorgeous, and the guide guy was knowledgeable and passionate about the Greek history! My friends and I had a great time!
This tour was amazing!
This trip was well worth the money I spent. The destinations were incredible, the tour guide was great, and the accommodation truly exceeded all expectations that I had. If youre looking for an insight into Ancient Greece then this is the tour for you!!
This was the first time we had taken a guided tour as a family and we really enjoyed it. The tour was well organized and operated and the sites visited were amazing. The Hotels were very good and arrivals and departures were organized without fuss. The brakfasts were very good the dinner buffets OK but could have been better. The lunch venues were good except for the first day when for some reason the opportunity for a pleasant lunch overlooking the harbour of Napflio is passed over for a meal in a rather souless wedding venue nearby organizers please note!. We give the tour five stars because of the outstanding tour guide Katerina who was very knowledgable about both archeological and mythological aspects of the sites and kept us enthralled with stories from Greek mythology, she also solved any logistical problems of the tour members. The driver George was also excellent and safe. There is a lot of driving but we really enjoyed seeing so much of the Greek countryside. Overall we can certainly recommend this tour for families and all ages.
excellent tour. very knowledgeable guide. accomodatons and meals are superb. I will recomend this trip to everubody.
I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide was amazing, lots of knowledge. The accommodations are beautiful with wonderful food. I didn't feel like I was stuck on a bus the whole time. Stops were spaced out at the right times. We had a small bus with a small group of people which also made the trip worth it! I highly recommond taking this tour.
