Client’s comments about the tour and our services
Yan_RN, Houston, Texas, Dec 15,
I booked 2 trips, One-day Mycenae-Nafplion-Epidaurus and the 3 DAYS/2 NIGHTS – METEORA & DELPHI TRIP (no guide), from Astoria travel and was very satisfied with their service. Kosta, a very reliable gentleman, tried his best to arrange every detail for our trips. He accompanied us until we were seated on the train at departure. He booked the same seat number for our departure and return train for us to be convenient to remember. It is important that I don’t think I paid more for this 5-star service. I paid less for the one-day tour and for the train ticket compared with what others paid. I highly recommend Astoria travel for Greece travel.
