Very good tour and informative. Skip the museum in Epidaurus though and go straight to the archaeological site as its quite large and impressive. I went through the museum and was only able to see a fraction of the great arch. site.
The tour was very well organized. The guide spoke very well English and was entertaining and kind. The group was small (10) so we managed to see many things.
Excellent! Great way to see the best of Corinthos, Mycenae and Epidaurus in one day and with all the insights from a great guide, Ioannis. Good food, as well.
the tour was interesting and the lady guide was fluent and very professional.
we recomend it .
I studied Classics at University, and I have been to both sites several times. But this tour was splendid, with enough freshly presented to keep my interest throughout - and i learned plenty that was new. This was entirely down to the excellent guide, Johannes (?spelling) who was informative, authoritative and charming. The coach was comfortable, and the lunch was excellent! Thoroughly recommend..
Super Organisation! Only one recommendation - please take a jacket and socks for the time in the bus - the air conditioner is harmless! To cold for european tourists.
This is a must for those interested in Bronze Age Greek history. The tour was well organized. The tour guide, in this instance, was one of the best I have experienced. He was knowledgeable and spoke clearly and distinctly.
The coach picked us up on schedule at out hotel.The coach and driver were excellent throughout the whole trip. The tour guide was engaging and very knowledgeable for everwhere we visited, giving us additional information for places that we passed. First stop was the Corinth Canal for the rest rooms, coffee and views of the canal. This was followed by Mycenae where we visited the Museum and the Tomb of Agememnon. Mycenae is an awsome place, over 3500 years of history and the views are just stunning. After Mycenae a short drive to our lunch stop, the Amalia Hotel. We had booked lunch as part of the package, those members of the group who had not booked had a choice from the À la carte menu. After an excellent lunch it was onward to the coastal town of Nauplia. We had free time here to view the beautiful shopping centre and colouful Bouganvillea flowers everywhere. Additonally views of the three castles that have been built here over many centuries to guard the town and coast. Our last stop was the ancient healing centre of Epidaurus and the beautiful theatre. The theatre is one of the best preserved and is still in use today. Last stop was another coffee and rest room stop at the Corinth Canal before finally being dropped off at our respective hotels. An excellent trip I'd happily recommend to anyone.
wonderful, good layout, beautiful views, enjoyable guide, good lunch
A long day (13 hours) but well worth it. We stopped for a rest break at the Korinth canal then after Mycenae stopped for lunch which was a 3 course Meal in a lovely country Hotel. Our tour guide was patient, amazing and extremely informative!!.
Excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable, and you felt you were able to see the entire site (albeit a little rushed at times). As our son has diabetes we chose not to include the lunch option. However, this meant that as lunch was at an isolated hotel, we had to sit in the car park for an hour. There was a photo stop (for about 5 minutes) after lunch in a lovely town, which would have been nicer for us to have spent an hour rather than the car park. Overall, a very good trip, but beware if you do not choose the lunch option you will have to bring your own food with you, and eat it in a car park.
The theater is amazing and Mycenae ruins are worth the trip. The history in this place is astonishing. The guide was excellent.
Really enjoyed this tour - our guide Katarina was lovely; friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. Enjoyed both Mycaenae and Epidaurus. Both important sites if you're interested in Ancient Greek history, and the visits were well-organised with enough time to get a good look round both. Would recommend this tour as a very good way to get a taste for the attractions of the Pelopponese. If I had to comment, I would suggest slightly longer at Nauplion; it looked like a lovely town, but we didn't really get long enough to look round.
