very interesting tour that touches the main stages of classical Greece. About 1,300km in four days make you appreciate the convenience of not having to worry about the road, parking etc. The accommodations in the tourist category hotels are very simple, in decidedly dated structures but with a cleanliness that is always appreciable. The guide George is nice and well prepared, who has always illustrated in detail the places visited, making them appreciate a broad cultural and linguistic knowledge of Italian well beyond the places and historical facts in question. Thank you for having managed a group in your own way where someone had a few requests too many. The restaurant proposed for lunch on 1 day in Mycenae is unpresentable, absolutely inadequate and unacceptable where it is hard to find something edible.

Very good day trip, despite the severe thunderstorms which occurred during the middle of it. The guide was lovely, very knowledgeable, and very friendly. She also called ahead at several stages, to get any up-to-date information, to save us hanging about. When the storm hit and the road was being flooded, she made sure that the bus driver came up to where we were, instead of us having to walk back to where it was initially parked. Water was gushing down the road, so it was great that she tried to ensure we only got a little bit wet.

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.

Great tour. Very good value. Not too much time spent in the bus. Very informative, helpful and entertaining guides, especially Mr. George on the second day (both were called George and both excellent but the 2nd Mr. George especially so). Bus was new, clean and comfortable and well driven if a little cramped for tall people. Food stops were good and I would recommend the upgraded hotel option.

It was very eye opener and very knowledgeable plus the views were amazing
