An amazing trip! Efi, our guide, was very knowledgeable about every stop and spot and we got to see so so much. The only downside is that the lunch stops, while nice, were at one specific spot picked out instead of free time to find a place in the towns, and that these stops were more tourist priced than most of Greece. Otherwise a truly amazing tour that goves you so much value, history, and appreciation of Greek history.

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.

Such a wonderful trip! Our tour guide, Anna, was so sweet and very knowledgeable on all the sites. Our driver, Nikolai, was wonderful and extremely helpful as well.

Very enjoyable experience. Professional guide, interesting landmarks, and comfortable transportation. Highly recommended!

Amazing trip to see two incredible sites. Our guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor.
