What people are saying about Central Greece

An amazing tour so worth taking. Anna our guide, apart from being lovely friendly person was so informative.She imparted her immense knowledge with such pride, pleasure and kept our interest piqued. We made our way to Delphi Ancient Agora. We were given free time to walk as much as we pleased and the option to visit the museum which is a must do. Beautiful views along the way. We stopped for lunch at a countryside restaurant;your own choice & cost of meal and drinks. We stopped every few hours for a break and leg stretch.Reaching Meteora was amazing.Only when you see the rock formations can you appreciate the magnitude of them as well as the monasteries built on top of them. Depending on your hotel of choice; the 3* was in the little town of Kalambaka itself and the 4* beneath the formations in the countryside. The visit to 2 monasteries was on the 2nd day. The coach was luxurious. Lunch on the home journey was a selection of home cooked dishes buffet style.If you have 2 days, domthis

Our guide Anastasia was wonderful, she’s incredibly knowledgeable and you’ll learn a great deal about the history and culture of Greece. The bus was very comfortable and the accommodation (3-star) while basic, met the description. The site visits were planned well, plenty of bathroom breaks, some free time and well worth the travel time to visit. There’s a number of places in Kalambaka I would have preferred to have had dinner instead of the included hotel buffet but it was convenient. Again, Anastasia really makes this trip. It’s worth it just for her guidance and education on the area and it’s a richer experience for it.

If you are wanting to get some more enrichment out of your trip to Athens, definitely book this trip. I am so happy we did it, and our guide Evan was fantastic!

The trip was amazing! The sights, the views and our guide Christine were super. The travel was a lot, but it was worth it. We highly recommend this tour.

Very good time allocation. A very flexible driver and a guide who knows his subject well and is warm.
