  • "For anyone with reduced mobility, those 2 features would not have been possible if you stayed with the group to listen to the guide's tour of the site." See review
  • "Also, there are stops built in for every 2 hours or so making it possible to get drinks, snacks and to use the bathroom." See review

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.

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...

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.

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.

Smooth operation, guides are depending
Nanan7385

We joined 2 days tour. We traveled by bus with customers for one day tour then changed bus to continue our trip joining group of customers who were on 4 days tour. The overall operation was smooth and nice. However, we felt that the level of tour guides is really depending. The guide on the first bus from Athens to Delphi was good but the next guide from Delphi to Meteora then back to Athens was sort of insensitive. During the trip, I didn’t feel like I was her customer as she seemed wanting to concentrate on tour operation rather than taking care of customers.

Delphi and Meteora

A nice relaxing trip. Enjoyed all aspects especially once I was in a smaller group. I would have liked more time at Delphi. I had to give up seeing all of the outdoor sites to be able to spend time in the museum. I suggest missing the guides presentation (which was very interesting) if you want to see it all. Meteora was fascinating. Hotel and stops were great. Also would have appreciated info re dress codes prior to travelling.

Please improve the guide's English.
VioletWC_S
, Oct 2019
The guide's English was very poor. She has a lot of Greek ascent and I can hardly understand what she meant to say. I even heard of some other guides laughed at her pronunciation. Moreover, she seemed to be readi with difficulty on the coach when introducing the sites.

A little Disappointing
Angelica S
, Oct 2019
The trip on the whole was very good but quite a long way. We started the day by being picked up at 8am and travelling to Delphi with a local guide on board. We did stop a few times along the way for toilet stops. The guide stayed with us when we were in Delphi and was talking about the ruins but then left us to be on our own which didn't give us that much time to explore as we were taken to the 3rd level and needed to be back on the bus by a certain time. After Delphi we dropped off some people who were not doing the Meteora part and we got another guide. This guide was very hard to understand and made it very difficult to focus. We stayed at the hotel Amelia in Meteora which included a buffet dinner and the overnight stay with breakfast included. Hotel was comfortable and the restaurant meals were very good. The next day we went to Meteora. The weather was wet and this made it a little difficult to see the monasteries when the clouds move over. The monasteries have a very strict dress code, men must have long pants or shorts that cover the knees and women are to have their shoulders covered and can be allowed in with a shirt or dress providing their knees are covered. If a women wears pants they must get a wrap from the attendant. We visited 2 of the monasteries and the views were amazing and the monasteries themselves were very interesting but be prepared to climb a few steps. Overall it was a very nice place to visit but a very long day coming home.
