Lovely trip. Excellent guide. Mixed hotels.
A perfect introduction to the best archeological sites of Ancient Greece with an excellent group leader and archaeologist, our charming "travel Mamma" Eva.
Eight days flashed past. We covered a lot of ground, but the travelling was carefully planned and broken up with site visits. Our Greek tour guide, Eva, provided valuable information about where to eat and what to do in free moments. More about her later...... The hotels were comfortable and central. The driver, Manolis, was steady and safe and the roads are much improved.
Excellent trip covering a wonderful variety of Ancient archaeological sites in Athens and the Pelopponese. Good hotels throughout, friendly and competent guide and driver.
