This tour was amazing. It far exceeded expectations and was the perfect way to see major sites in Greece. Our tour guide Effie and bus driver George were phenomenal. We didn't have to worry about a thing during the tour and even when Delphi was closed due to protests they came up with a great alternate tour. Cannot recommend highly enough. We read a few reviews prior to booking the recommended to upgrade hotels, we did and all the hotels were amazing.

A very nice tour crisscrossing the Greek heartland. We covered and saw a lot in four days. Well conceived and planned - lots of driving but broken down into bearable stretches. Our guide Anthony was very informative. I would highly recommend using the hotel upgrade option. Our co-travelers who had not done so were not complimentary of the hotels used in the non- upgraded selections.

Extraordinary opportunity to travel almost all over the continental Greece

We had a great time, the tour escort George had mastery in managing both the group allowing us to amalgamate amicably and the various visits to the beautiful sites. It was extraordinary for us to travel more than 1300 km in just 4 days. Comfortable and safe coach. We had paid for 3-star accommodations, excellent the one in Olympia (Amalia Hotel), a little less that of Delphi. The restaurants where we stopped for lunch abundant at moderate prices, except for the self service in Meteore. The only thing I would change: I would give a little more free time at the archaeological sites and less time to the so-called "tourist traps" (compulsory stops to buy typical products, etc.); or at least I would give the right to choose. Even the visits to the various archaeological museums were conducted by George masterfully, effectively and avoiding the superfluous.
