Well-organized and responsive

Except for some nitpicky details, the 4-day/3-nt Meteora and Delphi tour was the perfect option for two experienced female travelers. It very smoothly administered -- all the train, bus, and hotel reservations were made for us (with two Meteora tours included) but we still had...
