Amazing places to visit. Wonderful and relaxing hotel. The guide at meteora trip was perfect. Faults: we could spent more free time (+50min at least) in the archeological sites.

Be prepared there is a lot of driving involved in this trip. The sites are worth it though! Amazing. Hotel was clean. Restaurants were very basic. I would suggest for the lunch spots, asking what time you have to be back and finding better options. The food is not the best and you have to pay for lunch. Grab something quick and explore the towns instead!

Sites on the itinerary were good. Guides and drivers accommodated limited mobility. Sometimes information presented got repetitive. Lunch options need to be offered if we are required to pay for our own lunch instead of taking us to the guide's selected restaurant.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear clients, Thank you for your review. Lunch meals offered on the way therefore we have to choose restaurants with availability for large groups without pre reservation. Guides have a list with selected restaurants and each morning check which is available. We must be sure that the food is good as all tours run by bus and we have to took care to avoid stomach problems. Thank you Hara

Delphi and Meteora Tours
MaryGrace_M

Delphi and Meteora sights were spectacular. The tour guide during our tour in Delphi gave a lot of information about Greece and Delphi. She always smiles, very patient, makes everyone very attentive to her and deals with everyone in a professional way. However, the tour guide during our Meteora tour was unapproachable and never smiled. She spoke in a low voice and has a very short patience when asked twice. She showed some tendencies of being easily annoyed when somebody asked her questions she might not like. (Examples: The group asked her to make her voice a little louder as they cannot hear her from the back of the bus and she reprimanded the group not to make any noise so that they can hear her clearly. There's one member of the group ran out of battery for the radio while already walking around the church in Meteora and asked for a replacement then the guide told her, "you should have told me while we're still in the bus as I don't carry it with me anywhere I go". ---Thus, the drained battery was never replaced.) The Meteora tour guide's customer service, patience and dealings with the group need improvement.

Our guides were very informative. Meteora was every thing I hoped it would be with stunning views and beautiful churches. Delphi was more challenging but definitely worth the climb.

Beautiful boat tour around the island. Lots of opportunities to hop in and enjoy the sea. The cave was really cool to swim into, and the food provided was excellent. The captain and crew are very personable people. They wanted to make sure everyone was happy and enjoying their time. Definitely an experience you should have on your stay in Naxos!

Site amazing process needs some improvement
mauro_f

The monasterys are amazing we are very happy we did this trip. The first tour guide was a bit dismissive with people when they asked questions. We would have liked if the overnight hotel was in a village instead of outside of a town there was no where to walk or see in our free time. Also we were asked which hotel we would liked to be picked up at so we booked a stay near one of the choices and then out of no where we received an email telling us we had to meet at an hotel half a kilometre away. It was due to the thin streets which makes sense but the booking process should not give you choices that are not options or promise hotel pick up if this these are not options. This is quite a distance dragging luggage over uneven old streets. Also what if we didn’t see the email? Second Tour guide was very informative. Driver was amazing for the thin roads and traffic

Meteora was stunning. Enjoyed walking thru the green path on the slope to reach the monastery. Stopped at very scenic places for lunch on both the days. Only thing is - wish it was cooler when we climbed Delphi

Truly Enjoyed The Tour!!
Dipti_S

Spectacular trip visiting the Temple of Apollo and the famed location of the Oracle and original Pan Hellenic games. Truly incredible site. This followed by the mind blowing Minasteries of Meteora. Truly a site to behold. Breathtaking scenery and the monasteries themselves were truly beautiful. Of course the tour would have been nothing without our incredible Tour guide Ave ( short name :))! Ave was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about every location and Grecian history in general! His added details about the Grecian gods and their followers made the tour truly come to life. Thank you Ave!!! Only negatives are more about the food. The stop at the Restaurant at the sea was just bad. Bland, overpriced food. Maybe indicative of the region but just felt like a tourist trap. The food at the Hotel that evening was even worse. Why not take us somewhere nicer. I would have happily paid for it. Lunch by the Monasteries was delicious with a great view. Do better with the food Chat Tours! This is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Note: it is a long trip with about a 5-6 hour drive back from Meteora at the end.

Horrible experience with Viator
ManKinMike_K
, May 2022
We booked the two days tour to Delphi and Meterora in March 2022. When we booked it on viator.com, we noticed there are two different itineraries available. One will make a stop at Arachova village for 1 hour 30 minutes and the other has a stop at Leonidas Monument. We booked the first one as we like to see Arachova village. We started our two days tour on May 19, 2022 but there was no stop at the village as mentioned on the website. We talked to the tour guide Effia on the bus at around 6:00pm and showed to her the two different itineraries on viator’s website. At that time our itinerary was still showing on the website, she can be our witness. She helped us to call customer service to find out why. However the lady on the phone insisted there’s only one itinerary and could not find our itinerary with a stop at the village. She did not offer any help at all. When we pointed it out to Effia, we only wanted to clarify but not to make any complaints. If there’s a mistake on the website that misleads customers, we can accept an apology. We just want to voice out and clarify. However after we spoke to customer service at around 7:00pm, someone changed the itinerary on the website and deleted the stop at the village in order to cover up the mistakes and then emailed us at 7:18pm with a link for the updated itinerary. This is totally unacceptable and ridiculous. They make us look like a fool and don’t know what we paid for is a nonsense. Everyone makes mistakes and if they admit it sincerely, they can still maintain their goodwill but instead of doing so, they cheated and tried to cover it up. THIS IS BAD!!!! We are very disappointed with Viator’s service. We will put a very bad review on viator’s website. To run business successfully is by honesty, not by telling lies!!!!

Was a great trip with 2 very nice and great story telling guides. Only things....would have liked alittle more time in Delphi and we saw two monestaries but nunneries. Would have liked to have seen one nunnery and one monk monestary. Other than that was great!

Seeing Meteora is a must!!!

We were picked up from our hotel without any problem. The bus was quite full because it was like a common bus for 2 tour operators. When we reached a place before Delphi, we transferred to the bus of our actual tour operator. The bus was also quite full because we (2-day trippers) are joining the 4-day, 3-day tour on their 3rd/2nd day. There is WIFI on the bus but the guide did not share this until we asked -- probably mentioned to all the 4-day or 3-day trippers already. The information given is like a continuing story from the 4day,3day tour which us (2day) have no idea of. I suggest that the guide he/she speak in the point of view that everyone on the bus are new - no reference to previous 2 days. After the transfer to the new bus, we went to Delphi. Unfortunately, there was a strike of the workers at the Temple of Apollo - it is closed. We were not able to see the temple up close. Instead, we walked to Athena's temple in Delphi where we can see the Temple of Apollo from afar. This is quite frustrating but this is not controlled by tour operator. We then stopped by the Spartan monument before going to Amelia Hotel in the outskirts of Meteora. It would have been better if the hotel was located in the Meteora center so we can already start admiring the monolithic stones as soon as we arrive. Anyways, dinner and breakfast was good. We then proceeded to visit 2 monasteries. The views on Meteora was really breathtaking. Despite the strike and some not so good experiences along the way, I still recommend this tour. I just hope the tour operator use these reviews to make the experiences of their future travelers more complete.

2 Day Tour was okay
tmyers16t
, Oct 2021
You spent most of the trip in the car and about 30-45 at the three stops. The tour guide was nice but only talked for a few minutes at each site and they gave you time to walk around. The hotel was nice and the included food was good. For non-paid meals and rest stops they took you to specific restaurants where options were very limited, not good, and pricey. Overall the Delphi and Meteora were nice to see but not worth it.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear client, We are thanking you for your review. Its true that we have to cover long distances in the bus and unfortunately this is the only way to visit in 2 days Delphi and Meteora. On first day you visited the arch. site of Delphi and the guide starts to guide you from 08:45 to 11:30 in the bus and then 1 hour in Delphi and of course she must give you some free time on your own to have your photos of this important site before your departure to Meteora. On day 2 you visited 2 monasteries and again the guide guided you in the bus and then to the monasteries. Conforming Covid protocols she can't guide in the churches therefore you have time to walk around. Hope you will hold the unique scenic of Meteora. Kind regards Hara Kritikidou Customer Service Manager

Joy was our first tour...
Cori_H
, Oct 2021
Joy was our first tour guide to Delphi. Instead of talking to the tour she talked to the driver the whole time. Finally got to Delphi and she talked which gave us limited time to see the sites. Then we were transferred to another tour. Our tour guide was much better but the hotel was just ok. Enjoyed the monetary but the guide did not check which one was open so we had to go to a different one. Wish we had more time to see the sites

Meteora part of the tour was 5 star

The first 1/2 day tour to Delphi was too rushed and less than satisfactory. Then we joined another bus with the same company. It was a night and day difference. We spend 1-1/2 days in Meteora. Our tour guide Giota was excellent in explaining the history and kept us engaged.

Worth the cost and time investment.
Michael_D
, Sep 2021
Overall the trip was worth the cost, the time, and the length of bus travel. History and geology converge to give this trip a great perspective. The guides were very pleasant, and did a great job explaining why the areas are so important to Greece, as well as keeping us organized. Poor weather at Meteora (cloud & drizzle) challenged visibility, but that was just the luck of the draw. Viator did a great job. Thanks for the experience.
