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.

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.

Absolutely wonderful! Our host Mariana was very knowledgeable, kind and experienced in leading groups. The driver was kind and well experienced, a save and relaxed trip as a result. Everything was well organised and on time. The included lunch was of good quality and great service. This trip made it possible to see the amazing sights of Delphi and surrounding area of mount Parnassus in a one day. Even though the round trip is 400 km it was a relaxed day.

Maria has been very accommodating, knowledgeable and patient with all of us. She shared her experiences and her expertise in the study of Greek Mythology. She’s very kind and her sincere attitude makes me and the entire group feel at ease. Best experience so far

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
