It was a great experience. Our guides were very knowledgeable and patiently explained the history of the sites we visited and overall information about Greece as well. Meteora is a must see especially if you are already doing the Delphi tour. Our overnight hotel stay was very good and comfortable and dinner and breakfast was also great. Overall a very good and highly recommended tour. Khush & Sanjay Vancouver Canada

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.

El guia que nos acompañó a Meteora es excelente y tuvimos tiempo para disfrutar tranquilamente del paisaje y los monasterios.

Great tour guide…Anna…..and bus driver…Niko. Everything went so smooth and well organized.
