What people are saying about Central Greece

Clear instructions and train tickets will be emailed to you before the trip. Meteora is a great sight and definitely worth going if you’re in Athens. Guides were knowledgeable and gave insights with great story telling. There isn’t much to do at the town itself as it is a small one, so focus of the trip is on the 2 tours provided. Afternoon of day 2 will be time by yourself to relax at the town perhaps at a cafe or restaurant for about 4 hours while waiting for train ride which is after 6pm.

I did the hills of Athens walking tour with Magda and Yiannis. This was honestly one of the best tours I ever had. They were so informative and friendly. I learned so much about the different sites and enjoyed the beautiful sunset with them. They also shared some bits about local life with me. Overall, I highly recommend this tour especially with these two lovely guides!

Nice and smooth transitions from transportation to going to places. Very attentive and always on time providers. They made sure all my needs were met at all times and went above and beyond. Christos & Eleni were amazing!! Highly recommended.

nice proposal. The organization was punctual: from the train ticket to the welcome on arrival, from the guided tours to the availability to satisfy any wishes. I also enjoyed having free time to explore the trails around Kalambata.

This was an amazing trip, so beautiful and the guides were informative and entertaining.
