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.

Patty was a great guide! Very knowledgeable and friendly. We got plenty of Greek mythology lessons too! The shuttle bus was comfortable and the driver Kristoff was great! All of the places you stop on the tour are beautiful! I highly recommend this tour.
