What people are saying about Boeotia

We took a private two-day tour out of Athens of Delphi and Meteora. We believe it is worth the extra money if you can afford it. We were picked up at our hotel in Athens and driven to Delphi where our driver dropped us off and waited for us. He was very informative and helpful. He then drove us to Meteora, made sure we saw all the wonderful monasteries, and arranged a wonderful meal and a hotel in Kalambaka. Using Get your Guide to arrange this was fast and easy.

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.

Good tour A small group New coach and a young enthusiastic guide And also the museum at Delphi has all original statues

Everything was like described. Stress free historical tour with great lunch tavern with local ingredients.

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