    The tour guide: Dimistri (for Delphi) and Mariana (Meteora) are do knowledgeable. We were loaded with so much info and history of the sites we visited. Slightly long on the road but in general, we are happy with Key Tour.

    On the whole, the tour was excellent, especially the Meteora Rocks and the visit to the Varllam monastery and St Stephens nunnery, both of which were amazing. The Delphi tour was a little disappointing and this was probably due to the fact that so much time was spent on the bus

    Meteora's scenery is breathtaking and a natural wonder worth seeing! Visiting the sites in person is better than the pictures. Our drivers were great and our guides were both very knowledgeable and great story tellers! Evangelos guided us to Delphi and Dimitri was our guide
