What people are saying about Kalabaka

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.
