Reviews for Delphi & Meteora biking & hiking holiday in Greece


review 21 Jun 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

This is such a difficult question because the whole vacation was fantastic. Walking from Delphi down into the valley of the olive groves and hiking up to the monasteries of Meteora were both amazing experiences. The local guides that David engaged for these walks gave us so much insight into the area. Equally as memorable was our cycling in Pelion with Panos, our local guide there. He found so many hidden gems just off our main route that we would never have found alone. His love for the region was evident.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We used David's initial itinerary as a base and requested some alternative activities which he included for us, no hassle. So let David know what interests you and he will try to work it into the itinerary. He says, it is your vacation. Be prepared to get away from the bus loads of tourists and get to know Greece and its people. Book now.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, David used local guides throughout the trip to make sure that we had the most knowledgeable people leading our walks and cycles. We certainly got to interact with many locals from small villages as we stayed in wonderful family run accommodation and dined in local family run tavernas. A vacation where you walk and cycle for the majority of your time is certainly going to reduce environmental impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Wonderful!!! This vacation introduced us to the real Greece. This was not a big bus tour and so we got to see things at our pace. David was great. He was well-organised, flexible and used quality guides and booked fantastic accommodation. Additionally, as we chatted as we travelled he listened to us and so was able to include some additional things that he knew would interest us in particular. I would love to go back to Greece and do more similar vacations with David.
