Classical Greece Tour: 4 Days

107 reviews | 713 travellers
Very satisfied with the experience. Except for the food on the first day (criminal), everything else is excellent (landscapes, guide, monuments, accommodation in a superior category). The guide Elena simply wonderful. Much bus? Sure, it is a circuit across the country in 4 days, but it is worth it. Olympia, Delphi and Meteora are spectacular and the landscape is very beautiful most of the time. Of course, it said that we would see 3 monasteries and we saw 2, it put a luxury bus and it was a normal bus.
