Knowledgable Guide

The guide was very knowledgeable and she was careful to give attention to both the English and Italian group very professionally. I thought there was some issue with the microphone in the bus because we couldn't hear clearly. The 90 minute stop at Litochoro was inadequate to explore and have lunch. It's a cute place and perhaps some more time can be allocated. Even though it was raining the guide handled the trip very well.
