It would have been handy to have a road map of Greece with me to track the journey and help me remember the little towns we went through.
I would recommend this tour, just don’t have high expectations of the hotels.

Both the archeological site of Delphi and Meteora are beautiful and full of history, definitely worth a visit.

Amazing Sights in Greece!
LoisC244, May 2019
Our 3-day trip to Delphi and Meteora was unforgettable! We loved the archeological sights in Delphi, the beautiful monasteries and view in Meteora, as well as all the extra details of the trip--nice people on the bus, great and knowledgeable guide, beautiful hotels, fantastic meals--especially the lunch at the seaside in Itea near Delphi!

Very good tour, definitely recommended
Andrea_H, May 2019
Everything was amazing except the Hotel in Meteora was disappointing. The tours were well organized & we had two great guides - Joy in Delphi & Effie in Meteora. Drivers were incredible too, including Nik who stopped the bus to save turtles crossing the road. Hotel in Delphi was good - food good, service was great. Location was wonderful & spectacular views. Hotel in Meteora was disappointing. Wifi was terrible, zero sound buffering in rooms & loud, echoing hallways. Pool closed too early too (8 pm), which didn’t help us as we arrived just past 7 & then dinner was served. Hotel is also outside town, so nothing to do. Sheets are scratchy, as was the toilet paper! However, it seemed all worth it the next day when we went to the monasteries & were blown away by the breathtaking scenery. I would recommend this tour, just don’t have high expectations of the hotels.

Knowledgable guides, first class accommodations
L8697PJjennifers, Sep 2018
It was a great way to end my 3 week visit to Greece and the islands! I appreciated the constant communication prior to the trip, to help us reconfirm with the local tour operator CHAT Tours, and everything was clear. I was amazed by the beauty of the landscape and mountains throughout this tour, which was unexpected. Our tour guides (one in Delphi and another in Meteora) were fantastic and very knowledgable. I'm not normally one for big group tours, but everything was made easy, and I'm glad I chose the 3 day vs. the 2 day version of this trip, so that we had 24 hours in Delphi to explore additional sites and wander the village, have cappuccinos on patios overlooking the amazing views, and swim in the Amalia Hotel pool. It was well organized and admissions and entries to sites were handled for us. The downside was the long drive home, the volume of tour buses at these sites, and the busy rest stops. These are heavily visited UNESCO Heritage Sites, and I hadn't realized that, or the distances prior to the trip. It would have been handy to have a road map of Greece with me to track the journey and help me remember the little towns we went through.

Gerald C, Sep 2017
Sites and guides were excellent. Food was good. Long bus rides in comfortable buses. On 3 day trip there is too much free time, two day better use of time or four day. Hotels were clean but very hard mattresses. Delphi and Meteora are sites not to be missed.

Gerhard, Aug 2017
To summarize I would say a great tour - but not without flaws. Seating on the bus was somewhat chaotic - especially if you join the bus at the end of the pick up from your hotels - you end up sitting apart from your travel companion without any sympathy from the tour guide - worse was when we were shunted from Chats tours to another tour operator after the Delphi overnight stop - it ended up wasting hours of idleness . The Amalia hotels used on the tour was great - most outstanding was the hotel in Kalambaka as far as standards go but unfortunately very far out of town - impossible to walk to town, so one is very much confined to the hotel grounds. The sights on tour was great : Delphi visit was amazing although too short - great pity that there was no stop at the beautiful town of Arachova - it is a major oversight of the tour organizers to not include a stop-over here. Meteora is mind blowing - a must see for anyone visiting Greece. The tour and route from Delphi to Kalambaka Meteora includes beautiful mountain scenery. The stop at Thermopylae and the statue of Leonidas is very informative thanks to the great tour guide. Even with the flaws I would still recommend this tour with a 5-star rating.

A very special trip to discover Delphi and Meteora - thoroughly recommend as it takes you into the ancient history of this great country. A really special tour. Walk up to the monasteries as they are absolutely unique.

ac.rg.williams, Aug 2017
This trip was excellent value for money. Whilst we were split across a couple of groups to complete our experience, the times and rendezvous points were made quite clear, and the staff were punctual. So we had two tour guides: the first, Stathos ? created a great narrative, first as we left Athens toward Delphi and then at Delphi itself as we took 'the sacred route' to the temple of Apollo. This gave the information context and sequence. Our second guide, Irini, was also excellent - informative, easy to understand and thorough. The coach travel takes you through some amazing scenery from fantastic mountains to broad plains, allowing comfortable viewing of parts of Greek countryside that might not otherwise be visited, and the sites themselves make an excellent combination. The accommodation was comfortable - with the swimming pools being most welcome - although they were not of the quality advertised, especially with respect to the food which tended more to mass production than a dining experience. Delphi and Meteora are remarkable places visiting with knowledgable guides adds enormously to the experience and this tour is very good value for money.
Delphi and Meteora are both great...
MS_Z, Nov 2016
Delphi and Meteora are both great locations to visit, and putting them in one trip also limits the time you spend in the bus travelling though the views are amazing on the way. Our guides for both locations were entertaining and knowledgeable. The Amalia hotels where we stayed were also very nice, though the Kalabaka Meteora site was somewhat out of the town proper. On the other hand, we thought that the trip itinerary allocated too much time at Delphi. That portion of the tour was not taxing enough to require a night stop, and the major sights were covered in the walking tour though the guide skipped the Athena Pronaia temple. We felt later that it would have been more efficient to take the 2-day version of this trip far cheaper, too!, since the extra day adds no guided activities.
Combining 1,2,3 and 4 day tours...
WILLIAM_M, Oct 2016
Combining 1,2,3 and 4 day tours created problems, different guides, a pack of 48 people trying to follow and hear commentary in museums and churches was totally impossible. The use of headsets would have helped. The overcrowded bus led to seat battles. Some tour companies use a seat rotation system to overcome impolite clients. This may have helped. The first guide , a lady , was good, this was before the various groups were combined, the second man whilst funny, always started, before the 48 had assembled. This also included daily instruction in a hotel lobby. For me , 48 people is far too large for me. William McBain

The 3-Day trip is nicely paced and we have more than enough time to rest and explore both Delphi and Meteora. The guides Vicky and Joy are awesome in sharing the historical facts and we do enjoyed the journey very much.

MarieCharlotte_P, May 2016
Great tour well scheduled with knowledgeable tour guides. Very comfortable and beautiful hotels along the way. The only change I would make to this tour is probably to spend a bit less time in Delphi and more around the Meteora. Otherwise I would definitely recommend this type of tour especially when having a limited time in Greece.

jimjenkins444, Oct 2015
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

Barbara M, Sep 2015
excellent hotel in Delphi but in Kalambaka our room in the Amalia had a non-functioning toilet flush, a sink stopper that once down we couldn't get up, a tv we couldn't figure out , and a door to the patio we couldn't open -- and the food was pretty mediocre. similarly, our guide at Delphi, Coreena, was outstanding Meteora only ok buses comfortable

Rafal N, Aug 2015
The trip was quite nice. The hotels we were staying at were quite good, and the tour was conducted in a very relaxed pace that was exactly what I was looking for. Take note that it may not necessarily be conducted with 1 bus. I got dropped off at a hotel in Delphi by on bus that was doing 1 day trip to Delphi, and the next day after lunch I have gotten picked up by the bus doing 4 day trip. That was ok, although it would have been nicer if it has been communicated in the tour description.

Mayuski, Jul 2015
It was a first for us and we enjoyed our trip around Greece. The 1st leg of the tour from Athens to Delphi was a real treat. Our guide Evie was a 'fire-cracker' and made everyone feel welcomed and excited about the trip. Her storytelling and positivity kept us all engaged at all time. On the 2nd leg of our tour we joined a different group. Meteora was also impressive, but it was Delphi that took our breaths away also because you had to climb up the hill in the heat. Both hotels were pleasant and beds were comfortable. The only downside was the food, which was less of a greek buffet and more of a international mix of pastas and meats. All together it was an interesting experience and one we enjoyed.

Tripti S, Jun 2015
For 6 to 8 hour journey buses r not comfortable. They are either not equipped with washrooms or don't let us use in bus. They are not luxury buses for sure. We were lucky to get good idea on day 1, however day 2 n 3 our guide didn't provide that much information. Also this trip can be done in 2 days if u don't have sufficient time. Delphi and Meteora were really beautiful. Hotels were not that great. Delphi hotel had beautiful view.

JENTARRAR, Jun 2015
Well organized - not rushed - plenty of time to explore on your own. Hotels were good - the food was very good buffet style.
