Well the guides that accompanied us and the places visited. It would only have been good to finish the visit to the museum in Delphi like the people who only do the 1-day excursion. They visited him and arrived only a little later for lunch. The hotel was quite low quality.

Great trip with wonderful guide and driver

We had a fabulous time. Everything was perfect and Martina, our guide, was full of knowledge. The hotel was great (we went first class), although at first we had a twin instead of a double. We were able to arrange a swap with the hotel. The only thing we’d change would be to have a toilet on the bus and to stop at a different lunch place coming home (food was very ordinary, high pressure selling and really only main course meals - all we wanted was a sandwich or roll. Other than that - fabulous!

Amazing historical excursion

The tour was just well defined and intelligent. Yes, it is some hours of travel but it is totally worth it ! Our guide was tremendously generous and the sites itself is a big MUST of Greece. Don't hesitate: you'll get the best panoramic pictures ever while being culturally learning about that amazing country.
