The best way to get to know Greece

My experience with this spectacular faith tour. The times very well calculated, the guide very friendly and with much knowledge of everything we saw. The schedules were fulfilled perfectly and, although one does not pay much attention when looking for a tour, the stops to the bathroom were very recurrent (we never spent more than two hours without stopping) and the hotels in which we stayed also very good. It seems to me that it is an excellent way to get to know classical Greece in an entertaining and dynamic way, it is well known in 4 days with this excursion. Just do not forget to bring water, sunscreen and men, pants to enter the monasteries. I really enjoyed the trip and I totally recommend it.

A good way to tour the great archaeological sites, inaccessible by public transport, and with an extraordinary guide and driver! The sites are magnificent, and with the explanations you can easily dive into the past, but also the present of Greece. The trips are well organized, with regular breaks, and the accommodation well chosen.

This was a great value for your money. Definitely worth it. The food at the hotels and stops wasn’t that great though.

Cristina did a terrific job. She was one of the best guides I have ever had. She made the tour outstanding.

Teh guide Joy awesome. A lot of stories and myths were told and explained.
