Can someone please tell me what is the highest elevation we will be at on the 14 day tour. Thanks!

If your concern is altitude sickness, it is never that high. I have not done the research, but I would be surprised if it is as much as 3000 ft

Delphi is an overnight - elev. ~2000'
Lagkadia is an overnight - elev. ~3000'

I got the info by looking at the tour route and itinerary and googling the inland locations. Everything else is on or near the coast.

The effective percentage of oxygen in the atmosphere at sea level is 20.9%. The value at 3000 feet is 18.6% or a change of about 11%. If there is a health concern over hypoxia at these altitudes, the person involved should consider traveling at all. I couldn't find a handy chart,but there are publications listing the cabin oxygen while flying commercially as low as 15.2%
