We have planned rest of our trip to Greece, including Greek Islands and Athens area. We are left with 4 days and things we would like to see in these 4 days are - Naphlio, Olympia, Mycenea, Meteora, Delphi.
We basically have morning of Day 1 till evening of Day 4 as we fly out on morning on Day 5.

Ideally, we'd like a tour company that could do this - we found one from but that is a 5-day trip plus only on sat/tues.

a) Will we find other small tour companies that maybe not be on the internet that can do the above trip in 3-4 days?
b) If we can do the Peloponnesse in 2-days that would work out too.
Any tour company you know that does that most days of the week?
c) Can we do above trip on our own using public transport buses; or would they take too much travel time and leave us with not much time to sight-see.

Any inputs welcome :)
Thanks !

Trains or not fast in Greece and from Athens to Korinthos and Patras there a only 5 or 6 trains a day.

Busses drive more often and are a lot faster so you might use this possiblity.

I think the best way to visit the mainland of Greece is hiring a car at Herz (or some company) and drive to the places you want. The roads are very good and all places can be reached very well.
