This was our first of three organized tours in Greece and it was the best by a mile. We had a really great time learning all about the history and importance of Delphi on the way there, on site, and on the way back.
So what made it a great tour?
- Most important, our tour guide, Dorina, was full of knowledge and enthusiasm and brought her own set of photos and illustrations in a binder to show us while we toured the museum and archaeological sites. She also told us all kinds of stories and historical facts on the bus to keep us entertained. She blew our later tour guides out of the water, quite frankly.
- Lunch in the town of Arachova was much better than I expected—and I'm picky. The food was delicious and of a very high quality, and the restaurant was quite attractively decorated, with a huge patio. Arachova itself was beautiful and I would definitely consider staying there independently on a future visit to Greece. Apparently it's a ski resort town, and therefore has pretty buildings, good eateries, and nice shopping.
- Lastly the bus was new and spotless. Plus they made sure to stop on the way to Delphi at a nice clean rest stop, where the proprietors were very friendly to my Greek-American husband, and served us some tasty coffee and doughnuts.
Based on this experience I would not hesitate to book another tour with #tag ATHENS.
