    Dovevamo essere 20 con piccoli pulmini. E invece eravamo 43 con un pullman enorme. Lo staff è stato eccezionale, ma il tour doveva essere differente e questo ha influito sull'esperienza generale. Con un pullman più piccolo avremmo fatto meno fatica.

    El lugar visitado es una maravilla y está muy bien organizado. Eso sí, son 10 horas de autocar en total (de las 14h de excursión). Si estás dispuesto a ese sacrificio, perfecto, pero si vas a estar pocos días en Atenas, deberías reconsiderar si te merece la pena.
