Our guide Anna was wonderful! Her knowledge of the area and history was truly remarkable and her commentary added to the enjoyment of visiting these remarkable locations. The time spent in each location was adequate and the tour was run efficiently. Our driver was also excellent, navigating some tricky roads in foggy conditions. I would recommend this tour highly. My only comment to the organizer would be to consider adding a minimum age for destinations such as this. Unfortunately, we had a 2-3 year old child on this tour who yelled/screamed pretty much the whole bus ride and during every visit to each location at a destination. It might not be a problem for some people, but visiting these solemn, thoughtful locations with a kid screaming almost non-stop almost ruined the trip for us. There's not much any guide could do - I understand the child's family has paid a ticket, but in the future, they might consider ages 6 or 10 and up for some of the trips.

Truly a 'five star' tour! Our driver/guide Kostas, ensured that everything went as smoothly as possible. He was an excellent tour companion, chose comfortable accommodation and always had good recommendations for restaurants, cafes etc. His choice of local 'expert' guides for each of the three sites was exactly as required. The guide fees seem at first a little expensive, but in our opinion proved to be a worthwhile investment to make the most of our visits. It is a long tour and you need to be prepared for it, but lots of coffee stops on route! Five stars all round!

Awesome time with this tour . Matina was excellent with so much knowledge I learned so much . Only issue minor was that the driver was supposed to leave us at a metro stop and left us almost 2km away from it. Make sure you google where you want to go. As for your I would recommend to anyone . Great 2 days .thank you

Great guides and smooth organization ! The Meteora is a place you should not miss, it's breath taking. Thanks to the tour, we were able to make the most of it.

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