First time in Greece

Jump to last reply

Hello. My family of 4 adults will be traveling to Greece for the first time in late June/early July 2016. We are planning on staying in Athens for 3-4 days and Santorini for 3-4 days. We would also like to see ancient Olympia, Delphi, and Meteora. At this time, I am thinking that Olympia can be seen in 1 day, Delphi can be seen in 1 day, and Meteora in 2 days. Is this correct?
My problem is that we really don't want to drive in Greece, so I am unsure of how to get to Olympia, Delphi, and Meteora from Athens. The tour companies that I have researched don't seem to give details about how long it takes to reach each town, how long they allow you to sightsee, etc. Also, I have found a hotel I really want to stay at in Meteora, and I doubt it is one that the tour companies use.
I am hoping that someone can give advice of the best way to see these three places, out of Athens, that will truly give us time to explore on our own terms. For example, in Meteora, the tour companies only visit two monasteries, and don't allow time for exploring/walking the pathways.
We don't want to waste time backtracking to these towns, and we want to maximize the time we have so we can explore as much as possible.
We are on a budget, and this will probably be our only trip to Greece, so any help will be appreciated.
Thank you!
