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.

Excellent experience, two pleasant days, full but not tiring. Everything was well organised, the coach was new, comfortable and a long journey went by lightly. The guide is kind and very helpful. Delphi and Meteora absolutely not to be missed...

Fantastic tour, I'm glad I signed up. Everything I researched about the ruins of Delphi and the Meteora Monasteries just came alive. Excellent execution of logistics by the G.O Tours. I highly recommend this to family and friends.

Very accommodating. We missed the first day due to sickness and they changed the dates for us. Guide was amazing and the whole experience was breathtaking.

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