Marianne "Our trip to Greece was very well organized. The tour guide Matthew worked very hard, and we were picked up at the airport and sent back without a hitch. When we got to the hotel, a tour rep Effie came to greet us and explain every part of the tour as well as what to do in Athens on our free days. Hotels were as discribed and comfortable.

    We were not given accurate information by Encounters Travel. While this was being resolved, my parents experienced harassment and threats to their safety. Even once it had been resolved they continued to be harassed despite the agreement they had reached... Read more

    The tour was very good and covered most of the sights that I wanted to see. The City tour on day 2 was only for half day and I took the option to visit Cape Sounio with the tour company (not part of the overall tour). It was well worth a visit to see the... Read more

    Encounters Travel commented on this review
    Dear Shanthi, Thanks for taking the time to get back to us with this feedback and for your fantastic review, we very much appreciate your 5-star rating! Thank you also for your tips on the itinerary and the additional day trip on day 2. We do offer the Cape Sounio tour locally, but will certainly look at offering it as a standard option available in advance too. The tour does concentrate on the classical sites and museums, though we're planning to extend it and include the monasteries and spectacular scenery at Meteora for 2019 which will add some more variety. I'm sure our future travellers will find your advice very helpful when they embark on this adventure and I hope that you'll decide to join us again in the future!

    The tour was compact and very well organised. The locations were ideal and beautiful with lovely hotels (Hotel Europa, Olympia and Amalia Hotel in Delphi).

    We were a family of six. My 3 sons whose ages ranged from 17 to 22, my mum 73, my husband and me in a wheelchair. You would think that's a tricky bunch to please. But everyone on the team, Effie, Cassandra and our driver went out of their way to make our... Read more

    • I'm wondering how much time is spent on a bus and how much time is spent walking/hiking?

      The majority of this tour is spent sightseeing with your tour guide,we really can't give you exact number of hours as this will depend on the group dynamics and how much free time is requested at each of the places being visited.

    • How much time is spent on a bus?

      These are the approximate driving durations for each day of the tour, however please do bear in mind that these are only approximate and local conditions could result in these being different whilst on the ground.

      Day 1 - Very little, just the airport transfer - max. 1 hour.
      Day 2 - Again, very little on this day as this day is spend in Athens.
      Day 3 - Athens to Olympia takes around 4 hours, however this will be broken up with various stops throughout the day.
      Day 4 - Olympia to Delphi takes approximately 3.5 hours.
      Day 5 - The journey from Delphi back to Athens normally takes around 2.5 hours.
      Day 6 - Airport Transfer only, around 1 hour.

      The website is easy peezy to navigate and when I emailed, I received very surprising responses quickly. I also used the chat service which was so convenient. It's not often that I can give such high praise to a service provider.
