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.

FOUR EXCELLENT DAYS UNDER EVERY POINT OF VIEW

Excellent GetYourGuide. We chose this classic 4-day tour: we visited the most important historical and archaeological sites in central and southern Greece, as scheduled. The tour is organized in an intelligent and technically perfect way. The success of this experience is also thanks to the two people who accompanied us. Giorgio, the guide: speaks perfect Italian; he is very culturally prepared and has been able to convey information by involving all participants, young and old, by passionate and involving the group. He always made sure that everyone was well placed in the various hotels. He managed to amalgamate the group, as if we were friends of all time on tour, maintaining his authority. We have a nice memory of Giorgio. The tour was in Italian and English: the guide fully satisfied everyone. The other person is Socrates, the driver of our coach: very professional, prudent and expert. A gentleman. Tours to do.
