The train trip was a excellent idea to experience the landscape.

The trip on day of arrival was an amazing experience. The sunset and everything. Evelyn and Kostas were both great as guide and drivers. I would suggest that you think of something like taking people to the countryside instead of 2nddays to monestries and the 3rd day of just hanging around doing nothing while waiting till its time for the train to leave.... The second visit to monestries could rather be worked in on 3rd day while you show the people the forests and stuff on 2nd day.
