What people are saying about Boeotia

The Guide, Katia, was excellent. She was knowledgeable, spoke clearly and covered interesting, relevant information. The bus was comfortable and adequately air-conditioned. The tour, itself, was amazing. We had ample opportunities for photos, restroom breaks and snacks. One thing I did not enjoy and must make note of: the tour advertised free Wi-Fi on the bus, which was misleading and dishonest. I was cut off of this service shortly after connecting because I had “exceeded my limit for the day.” Very Frustrating, as I like to communicate with friends and family what I am learning about ancient Greek culture as I go on the tours, before I actually forget all of the details.

It was a really nice trip Totally worth the money. Despina is a good tourguide with lot of knowledge She is very nice and also funny. Don’t forget to bring lot of water with you in the summer season

I'm so glad that I booked this. Athena is a lovely guide / leader who explained everything in detail and really took time to look after all of us. The visit itself is absolutely amazing.

Amazing time and such informative tour guides. Will definitely book again! Iulia is a total gem!!!

Well organized tour! Athena was a very knowledgeable guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the day!
