Customer Reviews

  • Rachel Fogarity

    1 issue with the trip was that we had to pay to get up to poseidon ruins which we were never told of. the trip from Athens was nice on an A/C coach with a few others all english speaking and having audio commentary added to the journey. some nice pictures and destination was worth it.
