My friends have never done a coach tour before and the 5 of us had a great time. It was so convenient having someone else drive, handle the luggage and of course tell us in depth information about the sites that we saw. Miltizi was very engaging. The only thing that was a little inconvenient was that lunch was not included, which we knew and were fine with, but the bus only stopped at one restaurant for lunch and there were no other options to go to. Since, there were no other lunch options, then it should have been included in the price and I could have had it paid off before we left
This was an outstanding tour! Dimitra, our guide, was excellent and Anotonis, our driver, navigated the sharp turns and hills expertly. The itinerary for the trip was excellent. We had plenty of time at each of the main sites visited For example, we had about 4.5 hours at Delphi and saw all the sites and museum as compared to the more limited time the folks on the day tour from Athens had.. The time at each site was divided between a narrated tour of the site and museum with Dimitra and free time on our own to wander. The tour was a manageable and enjoyable 20 people from the US, Canada, Australia, and France. Most of the folks were on the 4-day tour including Meteora which is spectacular but we had seen previously. The bus was comfortable and well air-conditioned and the hotels/buffet breakfasts and dinners were adequate. I would highly recommend this tour or the 4-day tour in order to see some of the key ancient archeological sites in Greece.
This tour was very informative as well as a great value. The tour company came to pick us up at our hotel on time. Our tour guide Joy was engaged all the way from the first minute to the last. She did a good job of providing excellent information as well as stories to go along with the information. We spent a lot of time on the bus but our tour guide did a good job of helping the time go by. The breakfasts and dinners at the hotels were pretty good although the rooms themselves were average. If you are looking to learn a great deal about Greek history at a reasonable price, this tour is for you.
Wonderful places and good experience. Viator arranged everything properly.
Tour was good and particularly Guide was very informative and Hotel and Food was best.
Effi was a great tour guide.
Overall a very enjoyable and informative trip.
The tour was fantastic, I wasn't particularly blown away by the food options as some of the meals seemed to be tourist traps the tour guide we had, Joy, was incredible. I've not been on a tour with someone that knew so much information about basically everything. I would recommend the tour to folks that want the piece of mind that they're getting the best bang for their buck. This was worth the money and some of the views are just breathtakingly beautiful.
I had a wonderful time on this tour! We saw a lot of the beautiful Peloponnese region and heard myths that brought the different sites to life. We even had the chance to see a Greek wedding and do an olive oil tasting! I wish we had had more time at a few of the sites but it was a great tour overall
This Classical Greece Tour was easily one of the best tours I have ever been on in my entire traveling career. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in authentic Greek culture and history. Everything went smoothly: bussing, dining, hotels, sightseeing, etc. However, it was our tour guide, Joy, who made this tour completely exceptional. She is friendly, approachable, responsible-- everything a tour guide must be. Not only is she highly knowledgeable, but she is so passionate about everything she does. She seemed to know every aspect and every little detail about each place we visited. She recalled the historical backgrounds of our points of interest as if she were telling an epic story. It was this way of conveying information that made the entire trip-- the history, culture, people, myths-- come to life. Her engaging way of conveying information made every person grasp onto every word she said, completely enticed by her knowledge. Even my sixteen year old daughter, who is often bored and disengaged during such history-based trips, was eager to hear more about even the most tedious details. She remarks that she learned more on this three day tour than she has from years of history class. Joy was able to take a beautiful country and put it into context for everyone on the tour.
The other aspects of this tour also exceeded my expectations. All the destinations were worthwhile and absolutely breathtaking. We were greeted with friendly people, beautiful sights, and a rich culture found nowhere else. The hotels were relatively clean and pleasant, the food was great, and transportation was efficient.
It is perfect for any traveler with three days to spare who is hungry for a taste of Greece.
Great, well paced tour with excellwnt accommodation in Amalia hotels. Our guide, Joy, gave great commentary and told us the related myths for each site. She made these ancient ruins come alive.
