Great tour. Very good value. Not too much time spent in the bus. Very informative, helpful and entertaining guides, especially Mr. George on the second day (both were called George and both excellent but the 2nd Mr. George especially so). Bus was new, clean and comfortable and well driven if a little cramped for tall people. Food stops were good and I would recommend the upgraded hotel option.

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.
