I loved every minute of it! The guide’s name is Mariana and she is fenomenal, her knowledge of the history of the places is vast; she explained everything with simple words so everyone on our group could understand: I’m from Italy, but there were people from Spain and France too. She was very well spoken and always polite and caring. The hotel was great and had the best view of the typical rocks of Meteora. A tour worth every euro

A very nice day !!! We were disoriented by the mountainous landscapes around Delphe. We had the chance to travel privately with our guide and our driver, two warm people. Anastasia is a very caring person who goes to great lengths to communicate with French people who have little English!

Incredible destination, well worth a visit - our guide was very knowledgable and funny and the views were spectacular. Would be good to get a little longer in the museum, but this was also likely down to covid regulations.

An incredible site, stops in villages full of artisans and our guide Joy who was exceptional!

Very nice experience, Effi was a great guide and Costas a perfect driver!
