A trip of a lifetime!
Aug 2021
As someone who loves ancient Greek history, this was the trip of a lifetime. I traveled solo to Greece and it was a tour of 14 people including myself. My tour guide, Stathis, was extremely knowledgeable and made my trip. He explained the history of every site and also told mythological stories on the bus on the way to different destinations so we knew the history and mythology behind every site we went to. The entire time I felt very comfortable and he always gave us enough time at each site to walk around, take pictures and appreciate Greece's beauty. The restaurants we went to also had amazing food, and the hotels were clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour!! (August, 2018)

Great overview for greece
This is a great trip for a quick overview of mainland greece. We saw a lot of the main attraction with little fuss and in a quick time frame there are some big bus days but that's the only way to see everything

Fantastic tour. Excellent value for money.Good quality hotels. Learnt a lot from Tour guide Dimitria
Feb 2020
We had a wonderful time on this tour. We were on the go a lot but it was worth it as we saw and learnt so much. The museums at all the sights were of a very high quality. I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide Dimitria was very professional, knowledgeable, engaging and friendly . She kept up her motivation and energy even though the tour had some long days. The bus driver was very competent and also very professional.

Beautiful sights and Educated Guide
Feb 2020 • Couples
Our guide, Stathis Tsantekides, has been guiding people through Greece for 30 years and has much knowledge and many stories. He makes history come alive starting at an early time and working through Greek mythology and history. His tales are well worth the price.

Breakfasts and dinners are included. The breakfasts selections are very plentiful and the food is fresh. Dinners are fixed meals chosen by the hotels and are not as good as the breakfasts.

The sights we were able to see during this time of the year were wonderful as I’m sure they are during the summer. The difference in traveling during winter though is that they are not as crowded as they would be in the summer. Therefore, pictures are less populated with people and you can choose the composition of the photo easier.

This was a wonderful way to travel through the Greek country reliving history.

Spectacular and information-rich
Jan 2020
Several reviews of tours in Greece have reported dangerous driving, uninterested guides and poor accommodation. The 4-day tour I took with Chat Tours had NO such problems. The guide was generous with her knowledge and enthusiastic about her country. Perhaps she over-talked, trying to tell the group too much. Places visited always interesting and time scheduled good. Of course, Greece is mountainous and if you want to see a lot, it entails some hours in a coach.

Exceptional
Dec 2019
I booked this tour on the spur of the moment as my goal was to reach Meteora from where I wanted to continue my vacation in Greece. Little did I know that it would be a life changing experience. Not being much into history and even less into Greek mythology, our tour guide Matthew and driver Alexis from Go Tours made this part of my Greece experience unbelievably enjoyable. Matthew (Ματθαίος) is so interesting and shared his love of Greek history in such a way, that you cannot remain interested. I will value this tour for the rest of my life. Argyris Nikou from Greca Travel had all the patience in the world with all my requests and issues to obtain a visa and they were just all absolutely superb.

See Key Sites of Greece
Jul 2019
My objective was met with this tour as I got my money's worth to travel to these key sites with a ride and hotels to stay in with evening meals. That is why I give it 4 stars because it was exactly what I was looking for in seeing key sites in a timely manner. The sites on this trip were key sites for understanding the history and evolving of the country of Greece, seeing the original Olympic Games site which was very vivid to see and when I got back to Athens I went to the site of the first modern Olympics on my own. The best part was seeing the Monestaries in Meteora. I thought about doing this on my own but having the a/c coach bus ride with wifi was outstanding. One thing I did not like is our first stop of restaurant for lunch is that particular restaurant took the primary menus from us and gave us menus with same items but at higher "tourist" price. Just beware of that and know that you are free to eat wherever you wish when they stop. The guide was sometimes difficult to understand and seemed frustrated when people talked as we were riding in the coach. I wish there was an option to go to Thessonliki but it goes to and from Athens which is fine because there are some great sites to see in Plaka area on your own either before or after this tour. Everyone enjoyed each other's company and had a great time seeing the sites. There were some definite misunderstandings with the guide or company, but nothing earthshattering, not sure which, but the key is we got to see a lot of sites that I was interested in seeing. I have no regrets and if you have questions for the guide, just be assertive to your wishes or concerns. Being a world traveler my goals were met on this trip thank you to the driver, guide, and company.
