Loved both sites and especially having Meteora to ourselves in perfect weather. Guides and driver and hotel fantastic.
meteora was the best experience because it was for me difficult to imagine people living at such a high altitude without any family
Everything especially Georges the driver , Vicky and Joy ❤️❤️❤️ they are amazing ! Meteor was just magical ! It’s worth the drive !
Delphi was amazing and we wish we had spent more time there. Meteora is a beautiful photo but was not as interesting. Both tour guides were well informed and interesting. Bus drivers were amazing. When we booked this, we saw the other reviews that commented on the drive time and said “meh we can handle it”. In retrospect, it was just too much time on a bus winding through mountains. Lovely but gave me motion sickness. We wish we had done the Delphi one day tour instead. If you are looking for a more complete agenda of the trip, here you go: Day 1 830 - leave Athens; stop about 1 hour from Delphi for restrooms 12 - 115 - view archeological site of Delphi (about 50 minutes with guide and 20 minutes on your own); museum is NOT included 115-145 - transfer to Amalia Delphi to join bus with tour group doing 4-day tour 2-3 - lunch in Delphi - tour services place but not bad 3-7 - drive to Kalabaka with 2 rest stops Stay overnight at Amalia Kalabaka - food here was bland and buffet style Day 2 815 - leave for Meteora 845- 1130 - Touring two monasteries with a couple picture stops; about 20-30 minutes on your own at each monastery 12 - 1 - lunch stop; this place was pretty bad but catered to large tour groups 1-7 - drive to Athens with 2 rest stops
It was a great experience for both my Wife and me. The narrator and great driver (like a chauffeur) made the bus ride very comfortable and effective, with multiple rest stops, and stories. The Delphi and Meteora were must sees. Hotel and dinner stop for the overnight trip, were more than adequate, and wide distribution of food choices and desserts. Cost was appropriate. I have always been adverse to considering a bus tour. This changed my mind. An overnight bag was definitely a great idea, instead of our giant bags for our total 15 day trip.

This was a LONG two days of bus riding. The monasteries at Meteora are amazing and very worth visiting but after seeing the ancient monuments in Athens, Delphi didn’t seem as interesting (depends on your interest in seeing more ancient sites). Our tour guide from CHAT Tours, Dominique, was an excellent, knowledgeable guide.
Our guides Dimitra and George (on separate buses) were great- fun to travel with and a good knowledge of history
Overall the trip was worthwhile, and very well organised This is a coach trip with over 400 miles round trip (from Athens and back to Athens) but you see a very different side of Greece which is beautiful On Day 1, we met a small group and travelled by mini bus to Delphi - the time here could have been longer and would have been nice to visit the museum however the tour guide was great and you got loads of information about the place that you couldn't get if you just tried to go on your own. The lunch place (Scala in Itea) on the first day had beautiful setting (across the sea) but was food was simple/tasteless and very expensive - I'd recommend just getting a sandwhich from the local shop! You then travelled up to Meteora to stay the night at a very simple clean place Note: 4* and 3* denotes the type of room you get. We did 4* and had a lovely sized room with balcony and king size bed! Day 2 you travel to 2 monasteries. The bus winds up the hill and stops to let you take photos from both above and below so you get some great photos. The monasteries are amazingly beautiful Note. Knee and shoulders have to be covered and women to wear skirts. I wrapped a large shawl over my trousers and that was acceptable (they do sell shawls for this as well!) Again the tour guide talks you through a lot you wouldn't get on your own and the views and architecture are just amazing The lunch on the second day was alot better, and more reasonable priced! The tour guide was great, even as you were driving she was going through stories of the area and information about where you were travelling through There was regular toilet breaks on any of the longer drives, at places you could get a drink and snack as well Its a long couple days, but I'd definitely recommend it!
This was a picturesque and relaxing way to visit a few key spots away from Athens, with no headaches. Two wonderful guides (Stefania and Dimitra) and two very skilled and smooth drivers (Nikos and Babys) made the trip fun, informative and stress-free. The included meals were buffet-style and at the Amalia hotel, quite good for this type of meal. Lunch stops were fine. The hotel was also fine for large group travel, we appreciated the huge pool! Overall, the guides, drivers and hotel were very organized and communicated with each other to make everything smooth for us. We would recommend this trip to others!
Delphi and Meteora are must see . The tour guide was very knowledgeable . I paid more for a 4 star hotel and so did some of the other passengers . We left wondering what we paid for . Don’t do the upgrade . Also I’ve never been on a tour where you couldn’t bring food and your own drink on the bus . I think part of the reason is so they can gouge you when you make your restroom stop . A bottle of soda was $4 euro . The second day we stopped for lunch at a place called palazzo. Long wait in line to get cold food $29 for not even warm food . Was told by other passengers that there got a great gyro from a different restaurant nearby for $5 So if you can avoid chat tour company I would
