I had a fantastic experience with Astoria Travel and Kosta.
He is very efficient; he knows his stuff and he is one of the best in his job.
He helped me plan a trip to Kalambaka and Delphi by train, private taxi, and Intercity bus.
He arranged everything and all went very smoothly like clockwork.
He takes care of everything, so you don’t have to worry about anything.
All you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy a well-organized trip.
His prices are very reasonable and extremely competitive compared to other travel agents.
I was in Greece the last week of March and the first week of April 2018. I definitely recommend him.
