All the hotels were conveniently located and we had some unforgettable experiences - maybe Delphi was the most memorable, but closely followed by Mystras and Meteora. All the included trips were really good; we were taken to good eateries for lunch. Also had enough free time, which isn't always the case on tours - spent last day exploring Athens by ourselves. Great holiday!
