Know More about this tour

Day 1: Delphi
After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, sit back & relax in one of our new Black Mercedes E Class or AudiA6 models with full leather & Wifi as you head north passing through beautiful countryside before arriving at the Delphi archaeological site. You take all the time you need to tour the Castalian Spring, ancient sanctuary of Apollo, the treasury of the Athenians, the ancient stadium, ancient theater and impressive museum with its many artifacts from as far back as the 15th century BC, including highlights such as the Naxian Sphinx, statue of Antinoos and the bronze sculpture of a charioteer. After ample time to enjoy the site and reflect on its significance, you'll then visit the pretty mountain village of Arachova perched at 3,116 feet (950 meters) on the south slopes of Mount Parnassus. Here you'll take the opportunity to stop for lunch with some wonderful Greek cuisine and many regional specialties before a walk to explore the village enjoying its atmosphere, views and local craft shops before settling in to your nearby 4 star Hotel in the center of Delphi.

Day 2: Meteora
After breakfast you'll travel toward the Aegean coast, pausing on the way at one of the charming seaside villages before reaching Meteora where you ascend to visit two of the monasteries. Built on a natural formation of sandstone rock pillars up to 1,312 feet high, the six remaining monasteries date from the 14th century and form a remarkable and awe-inspiring combination of nature and spiritual significance. You'll visit two of the most outstanding monasteries, normally the Grand Meteora Monastery, Varlaam or Agiou Stefanou, and learn about their long history and the hermits and monks that lived there. Here, you'll take in the majestic landscape views. After taking the time you need, descend to the town of Kalambaka at the base of the rocks with its extensive choice of local cuisine. Travel to your boutique hotel accommodation.

Day 3: Thermophylae
After a leisurely breakfast, travel south for approximately 90 minutes to the site of Thermopylae, stopping to see the monument and enter the newly built Visitors Center, which recreates the ancient battle where King Leonidas led the 300 Spartans in 480 BC. After pausing for lunch by the sea in one of the many local villages we finally continue to return you to your hotel in Athens with the memories and images from these wonderful experiences.

    We had a lovely time touring mainland Greece with Vasilis. He was very knowledgeable in regard to Greece. He kept the tour super fun and was funny. The pick up and drop off process was very smooth! It was nice to get taught the background information on certain sights such as the Temple of Apollo before we checked it out. Water and juice was provided, which was lovely. He took us to amazing restaurants and a beach, which was amazing and very relaxing. Vasilis ensured that we were comfortable throughout the whole tour. He also recommended places to visit for the rest of our stay in Greece such as restaurants. Thank you Vasilis for being so kind and lovely. I would recommend this tour and guide.
