Our tour guide Costas was fantastic at explain current day Athens and covering a wide range of Greek Mythology and how it relates. The bus was clean and the driver was wonderful. I really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to anyone. The lunch included was also very delicious.

In total its very very good. But a little advice. The guides are excellent and bus drivers too. But when it comes to the tour, though the information is awesome and really good to know it would probably be best to give about 3-5 minutes of speech at each information stop on the tour. It gets a little bit too much when your standing in 30C heat listening for 10 minutes. Keep it to 5 minutes and then keep moving. But the tour was good and the guides excellent. Thank you.

We left and got to the location on time and all the way our tour guide told us all about the region, the cities we drove past, the myths and real history surrounding it. He also asked a lot of questions to keep us involved as well. At Delphi we could stay in the shade while our tour guide explained everything to us with great humor. We only had one option of restaurant for lunch, but the restaurant was reasonably priced with really good food and friendly service. It's also great traveling in a group. I met some great people!
