What people are saying about Lamia

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.

It was a great experience, the stops in Delphi and Meteora where not short, considering the lack of time at hand. Breakfast and dinner where included, both of which where of good quality, as was the hotel in Kalabaka. Professionally organised with top notch tour guides. Would recommend to anyone.
