Mon mari et moi avons beaucoup aimé ce tour. Le 1er jour, nous sommes parti de Athènes et avons visité le site archéologique à Delphes, très intéressante. Le fait de passer une journée/nuit 24hrs à Delphes nous a permi de visiter le charmant petit village près de l'hotel avec piscine et de manger au restaurant Telescope notre choix dont la vue était exceptionnelle, nourriture très bonne et le propriétaire d'une extrème gentillesse. Le 2e jour, départ en après-midi, voyage entre Delphes et Karalamba Météores a été très confortable et nous avons fait quelques arrêts en route dépanneur/casse-croûte. À l'hotel, belle piscine avec de belles vues, buffet assez varié, loin du village mais près des Météores. Le 3e jour, départ tôt le matin pour la visite des météores. Le WOW du voyage. Les Météores sont magnifiques et assez impressionnantes à voir. Visite de monastéres: Reposez-vous bien la veille car des marches vous allez en monter et descendre lors de la ou les visites de Monastères. Celui que nous avons visité avait au total 287 marches pour s'y rendre seulement et non 150 comme mentionné par la guide, vaut la peine d'y aller. Apporter de bons souliers de marches, chapeau de protection car il n'y a pas beaucoup d'ombre :-. Une excursion de 2 jours pourraient convenir. À voir absolument!!!
Delphi and Meteora are both great locations to visit, and putting them in one trip also limits the time you spend in the bus travelling though the views are amazing on the way. Our guides for both locations were entertaining and knowledgeable. The Amalia hotels where we stayed were also very nice, though the Kalabaka Meteora site was somewhat out of the town proper. On the other hand, we thought that the trip itinerary allocated too much time at Delphi. That portion of the tour was not taxing enough to require a night stop, and the major sights were covered in the walking tour though the guide skipped the Athena Pronaia temple. We felt later that it would have been more efficient to take the 2-day version of this trip far cheaper, too!, since the extra day adds no guided activities.
Combining 1,2,3 and 4 day tours created problems, different guides, a pack of 48 people trying to follow and hear commentary in museums and churches was totally impossible. The use of headsets would have helped.
The overcrowded bus led to seat battles. Some tour companies use a seat rotation system to overcome impolite clients. This may have helped.
The first guide , a lady , was good, this was before the various groups were combined, the second man whilst funny, always started, before the 48 had assembled. This also included daily instruction in a hotel lobby.
For me , 48 people is far too large for me.
The 3-Day trip is nicely paced and we have more than enough time to rest and explore both Delphi and Meteora. The guides Vicky and Joy are awesome in sharing the historical facts and we do enjoyed the journey very much.
Great tour well scheduled with knowledgeable tour guides. Very comfortable and beautiful hotels along the way. The only change I would make to this tour is probably to spend a bit less time in Delphi and more around the Meteora. Otherwise I would definitely recommend this type of tour especially when having a limited time in Greece.
For 6 to 8 hour journey buses r not comfortable. They are either not equipped with washrooms or don't let us use in bus. They are not luxury buses for sure. We were lucky to get good idea on day 1, however day 2 n 3 our guide didn't provide that much information. Also this trip can be done in 2 days if u don't have sufficient time. Delphi and Meteora were really beautiful. Hotels were not that great. Delphi hotel had beautiful view.
This was a good tour, we got to see a monastary and a nunery with some amazing views. There is a number of steps one must however climb and thanks to it been quite popular there is a lot of people in a small amount of space. I am glad I did this tour, however I thought it would be more of the isolated religious areas of Meteora, but we went to the locations very close to the road instead. Be prepared to be left in Delphi without a tour guide and maybe only a few passengers all on your own as you combine with day trippers to get there. Also the bus was nearly an hour late to pick us up for the 2nd day, so be prepared to wait around a bit, as well as been very rushed when you are actually in the Delphi museum etc. The hotels we stayed in were nice, spectacular views off the hotel balcony in Delphi!
