The tour to Delphi was entertaining, with good and interesting information. Seeing the archaeological remains was impressive even though at least 15 more minutes would have been necessary. We then went to Kalambaka with another guide who, despite his erudition, was not very entertaining. The hotel where we spent the night (Hotel Orfeas) was dilapidated, poorly decorated and out of date. mediocre dinner. The visit to the monasteries was good and worth the hours of travel. On the trip we stop as many times as necessary to go to the toilets or have a drink

The 2 day tour to Delphi and Meteora was great. It did not feel rushed, enough time to visit the places and wander around. Hotel accommodation is very basic unless you choose to upgrade. Lunch stops were great. Reasonable prices and good greek food. Guides (George and Thomas) were very knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting and fun facts about greek mythology and history.

The trip was nice, however there were a little too much of stops to buy souvenirs, go to the toilets, that could be used to visit more sites. Except that, the tour was what was indicated on the trip description. Our guide was nice but we felt he was not providing enough information (except at the monasteries). The 3 star hostel was ok but it was more corresponding to a 2 star hostel in western Europe. Overall a good experience.
