Great tour
Patrick_M, Apr 2024
Great tour. Excellent guide and driver. Views along the north Ageian coast were spectacular. I’m not gonna say anymore.
Great Tour Package, but
Ted_S, Feb 2024
This was a great tour package from Athens to several beautiful and interesting historical old Greek sires. Our tour guide, Dominic, was a great guide who looked over us like a mother hen and was a wealth of knowledge. The hotels were fairly good along with great breakfast and excellent dinner meals included. Everything was well planned and taken care of and all we had to do was go along. There were only twelve of us in a small party type bus, which was great. Our only but was the driving. We have to say that we did not feel completely comfortable as we felt the driver was driving way too fast for many of the roads. This, as we found out later, might be typical of most drivers in Greece and not just our bus driver. We were sitting up front and could see the speedometer and many times the driver was going 90-100 kph in areas posted 50-60 kph. Even through narrow city streets where it was posted 30-50 kph he continued at those high speeds. He appeared to be a good driver, knowing the roads, but seeing him drive at those high speeds through narrow streets in many small villages just left us unable to relax, and much of the travel was on windy, steep, and narrow roads. We questioned the tour guide if we were in a hurry and I was told the speed limit in the country is 100 kph, but that was obviously not the case on much of the roads we traveled. Again, maybe this is typical of drivers in all of Greece, but if the driver had driven slower this would definitely have been a five star tour. Again, if not for the driving, the guide Dominic was excellent, the sites were wonderful, the lodging and food were great, and everything is well planned, effortless, and well taken care of for you.
Temples of Apollo and...
Farrel_P, Oct 2023
Temples of Apollo and Athena. My husband, who used a cane, was keeping up pretty well. While we expected no special considerations, it would have been nice for our guide to at least inquire how he was doing.
Guide hard to understand.
William_H, Oct 2023
Unfortunately the guide was hard to understand with her thick accent. I had been on the exact same tour before with an excellent guide, but both my wife and I were disappointed with this experience. Also, time at archeological sites was sometimes cut short to allow the guide to shepherd us to stops for unnecessary shopping that did little to enhance the overall experience. Some important historical information was skipped over during some presentations. The electronic sound devices did not work well when the guide was walking and talking. Sound quality was better when the guide stopped and faced the tour group. The guide treated the group like small school children by constantly questioning what the group remembered from the past museum visit. Between the thick accent and scattershot details my wife felt very disappointed in the experience and presentation. Since I knew some Greek history, I was not as frustrated, but still disappointed. We later met a guide with another group that spoke clearly. We wished we had encountered her on our tour. The archeological sites are wonders in themselves, but could use a better guide to bring forth their history.
Fabulous Tour
Heidi_M, Sep 2023
Our tour guide, Averkios, was fantastic! He really knows his history and archeology and was a great teacher throughout the entire tour. It was easy to see his passion for the subject. The hotels were very nice and the food was very good. The schedule was a perfect balance of organized education and then some time on our own to explore. Highly recommend this tour.
A fun adventure with a lot of travel and learning
Chris_S, Sep 2023
Having an excellent tour guide makes all the difference in the world, especially when there is so much travel involved in three days. We were treated to stories as we traveled through small villages on our way between sites, and it made the time go by quickly. Yes we had an excellent tour guide and she made this excursion even more memorable.
Wonderful learning experience
Cheryl_F, Aug 2023
It was a wonderful and educational trip. Our tour guide layered in the information during the drive, as we arrived and then visited sites. I personally learned so much! I traveled with my teenage grandson who also stayed interested. Our guide provided great lunch recommendations on the first two days. The hotels were very clean. We were able to enjoy some swim/ pool time each day before dinner. Dinner was buffet style and a lot of options to choose from. I was unaware that they combined the 3 day group with 4 day. The only unexpected informations was that we finished around 1:30 and we were taken back to hotel to meet another bus that returned to Athens leaving at 3. We did stop at a lovely picture site and one restroom break. My only wish would have been to allow us time to purchase water before we boarded the bus, either at the museum or if hotel had readily available. The bus drive home was quiet and relaxing and we were taken to our hotel. This is a definite trip to consider.
3 day tour
Ian_B, Jul 2023
I would not recommend changing people of one bus to another. Our trip was brilliant until we changed buses. The guide on the second bus which was a day trip bus was so obnoxious it wasn’t funny but she was very good with the elderly……you make up your own mind
Wonderful sites, beautiful drive, too much talking
Tina_P, Jul 2023
The archeological sites we experienced were incredible. Our guide Joy was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English, French and of course Greek. The bus was very comfortable and the air conditioner worked a treat. (Thank goodness as we were here during the heatwave). The meals provided were below average. Buffett dinners and breakfast. And although you could buy your own lunch they stopped were you didn’t have any options other than their option, which was always overpriced. We stopped to do wine and olive oil tasting on day 2, a tourist trap. We were there 15 minutes. The tour I went on was both in English and French. Never again!!! We spent half the time at sites waiting for our guide to explain in both languages. On a day when it was 42 degrees in the shade, this was not ideal. There was little quiet time on the bus as again everything had to be explained in both languages. I did the 3 day tour and had to wait 2.5 hours for the bus to take me back to Athens after my group had left. Poorly organised. A whole afternoon wasted waiting around. Our driver George was excellent, lovely personality and safe driver. We stayed only at Amalia Hotels, which were nice and mostly friendly staff except in Nafplion the dinner staff were rude with little care for their patrons.
Our tour guide Dimitra...
Angelina_M, Jul 2023
Our tour guide Dimitra was excellent, very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. She was able to convey the key points of history spanning thousands of years through stories. Delphi was spectacular. The only downside was that it was a lot of hours travelling on the bus to make all the destinations. And it was really hot. The hotels were nice (pools but no fitness rooms) and lunch had to be at the restaurant we were taken to ( no choices). I’m not sure what first class got me.
Enjoyable Tour
Katherine_V, Jul 2023
Our tour guide was amazing! She had so much knowledge to share and made all of the history interesting for all ages. We wish there were more choices for dinner for children in Delphi. We did not get to choose the dinner. It was predetermined and there was only one option. Our tour continued for a 4th day so we returned from Delphi on a day trip bus. So we had to wait at the hotel for that tour to end to join the. This delayed our return by several hours Better communication regarding the drop-off would be better.
Perfect Athens tour to cover surrounding cities
Tracey_T, Jun 2023
We were able to see a lot of archeological sites and museums. Nice hotel accommodations, delicious food, and comfort bus.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide
Michael_P, Jun 2023
Sites were fantastic. Our guide Dmitra was very knowledgeable and fluent in French and English. The hotels and meals were nice. There was a diverse group of people on the tour - Americans, Canadians, Australians. There were singles, couples and families, and young and old. Highly recommend! History and Greek mythology became alive!
Beautiful drive along the Greek coast
JadyW_C, Feb 2023
My wife and I really enjoyed the three day trip to the Peloponnese. Although the mornings were a little cool (mid Feb) the sun warmed up the air each day and it was a very, very pleasant experience. The ancient ruins at Olympia and Delphi were impressive, and the drive from Olympia to Delphi, along the Greek coast was beautiful. The mountains, the coastline, the jagged shoreline jetting out into the bay... just really pretty. Frankly, I think it is the best "shoreline" drive we have every taken.
This was a great trip for...

This was a great trip for anyone wanting to experience classical Greece outside of Athens. An excellent three day tour with an exceptional guide.
Great experience!

Linda_H, Oct 2022
Driver and guide were amazing! Very knowledgeable and were great about keeping us on schedule without us feeling rushed.
More than worth the price of admission
Pete_F, Oct 2022
Overall great trip and well worth the money. I took this trip 6 years ago and wanted to come back and bring my kids. It is a much better route now than it was 6 years ago and I am glad I did it again.
A tour not to be missed, we'll organised by the tour Operator.
Mohmed_A, Jul 2022
The tour was so nice with experienced guide, historical sites beautifully explained, hotels at beautiful locations with good food and beautiful landscapes on the way from place to place. Hallen was the guide deserves 5 star rating with excellent driver.
Good general overview of Greece.
Steven_W, Oct 2021
Great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable. Hotels were ok, even though we requested the upgraded hotel. Was surprised how the return was because we were transfer to another tour going back to Athens. Glad we had a small and cordial group. Might be tough with a big group.
