It was a great experience, the stops in Delphi and Meteora where not short, considering the lack of time at hand. Breakfast and dinner where included, both of which where of good quality, as was the hotel in Kalabaka. Professionally organised with top notch tour guides. Would recommend to anyone.

Well the guides that accompanied us and the places visited. It would only have been good to finish the visit to the museum in Delphi like the people who only do the 1-day excursion. They visited him and arrived only a little later for lunch. The hotel was quite low quality.

The first guide was not too detailed and left out the details of the explanations from English to Italian. The second great guide George. The trip was beautiful and well organized. 3 star hotel but wonderful in the center of the village of kalambaka so I could also visit a wonderful church. A thousand thanks
