A+ overall trip. We had a blast and would recommend it to anyone. This was our first Marathon T&T trip, and we will DEFINITELY be going on another one!
This was my 4th trip with Marathon Tours and every time its been a great experience. Anytime I do a race overseas, Marathon Tours makes it an enjoyable experience.
I highly recommend my tour group - Marathon Tours and Travel. Many of my fellow participants have traveled with Marathon Tours and Travel to other events, which is the best recommendation. I was impressed with the organization and friendliness of our two guides - Stephanie DiBrita and Nicole - who herded their 50 or so cats into a cohesive whole. Communication, hotels, buses, dinners, time tables were spot on. My fellow tour group members were a varied lot, mostly from United States and Canada, and all committed participants in training and running and racing. One gal marked her 100th marathon and completion of the "Seven Continents Club". Another couple has run marathons in all 50 states, and is working on running half-marathons in all 50 states. We discovered commonalities and favorites, and certainly will encounter one another at future events. Wonderful times sharing stories.
This was my 44th marathon and I cannot express how thrilled I am to have had the privilege of being in Athens for this amazing run. it was so well organized and supported... the finish was just epic!
Stephanie and Nicole were great trip managers. They didn't hesitate to answer questions and were extremely knowledgeable about the event, race and Athens. Anytime someone gets an opportunity to do an experience with marathon tours, they will be in good hands if they are their trip managers.
Stephanie and Nicole are amazing providing information and making sure we are having a good time ! They are very kind and helpful. They definitely make our tours experience unforgettable! I will take any tour with them !
Experiencing a new culture steeped in ancient history. Interacting with (shock) individuals like myself, hearing their stories, learning from their cultural and race experiences outside of the US. Confident that the Marathon Tours staff was there as a safety net. Thankful that Marathon Tours booked a hotel with a grand breakfast buffet, including race day morning special. Grateful for the Marathon Tours staff for guiding us to the buses for transport to the event start.
Stephanie and Anne were delightful. They were always mindful of the special needs of folks in the group and when one gentleman fell, they were right there to make sure he was all right and not needing medical care. They were happy, professional, fun to be around.
The whole atmosphere of a destination race, from the accommodations to the race itself, and meeting like-minded friendly people who were all there for the same thing. This atmosphere wouldn't have been made possible by the great planning and organization that went on behind the scene by the coordinators.
Stephanie's first time with Marathon Tours, she was the perfect host. She was dedicated to ensure everything was smooth and we had a great time. Thank you Stephanie.
