Our tour guide was cheerful, engaging, and had a background in archeology, which was the perfect combination. Had an excellent lunch at a beautiful, modern hotel. The sites were all worthwhile. The ruins at Mycenae are extensive and include a huge burial tomb you can enter. Epidaurus has an impressive
Best tour guide in 6 trips to Europe since 2011. Improvements: We were 10 ft from the water and the Agean and we didnt stop. Similarly, we could have stopped in the old capital and walked around. Beautiful city, but we just drove through and saw the markets through the window.
The trip was organized by Chat Tours and it was wonderful. The guide provided us with very good historical information so that by the time we had reached each site, we all had good understanding of what we were looking at and what we were hearing. Few tours give such depth. It was very impressive. The tour was the perfect length with stops between the two main sights (Mycenae and Epidaurus) to stretch and see other things, like the Canal at Corinth and some breathtaking scenery along the coast.

An amazing tour from start-to-finish. The guide was a fountain of knowledge on all aspects of the trip and provided great insight into the history and origins of each location. Highly recommended.
Very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humor! We really enjoyed the entire day, the time at all of the sites seemed well planned. The lunch was quite good.

Both trips were a huge success and perfect for the free time we had available while in Athens. We did appreciate the message awaiting us when we arrived at our hotel. It confirmed the pick up time for the following morning and then again the message sent to our tour guide the afternoon of our Delphi Tour confirming the time for pick up on the second tour, a service showing a caring attitude to your clients, we felt the our business mattered. Both tours were wonderful and really set us up for our Greece visit. Thank you.
Really great tour... thoroughly recommend. Mycenae and Epidaurus are incredible. One point though - CUT OUT the corinth canal stop - looking at a crap canal for HALF AN HOUR was unnecessary - 5 seconds covered the value of a view of a canal. the remaining 29 minutes and 55 seconds was wasted. we stood waiting for the coach driver to come back so we could go. Corinth canal is a TOTAL NOTHING.
Mycenae 10/10, Epidaurus 10/10.
I absolutely loved this trip, and our guide Daphne, who was fantastic. I had learned about Mycenae in art history many years ago, and seeing it was stunning. I heard other people commenting that the views were outstanding and the description of each sight was fantastic, so you really don't need to know about it before you go to the site. It was great to get out of Athens for a day and tour the countryside. I would definitely recommend this tour!!!
This is a well-organised tour. The bus was comfortable and the guide was excellent. She was a wealth of knowledge and really made the experience first rate. I highly recommend taking this tour.
Another excellent tour. I was looking forward to visiting Epidaurus, but I was totally blown away by Mycenae. The tour guide seem a little robotic, but was very informative. Ample time was given to view the sites and take photos.
Very good guide and information provided the pick up / drop off went off without a hitch.
The mechanics of the trip went like clockwork from collection at the hotel to transfer to return. But the star of the experience was our guide. Fully informed on both the past history and the recent she explained everything very clearly and answered everyone's questions even to using her replies to take our understanding even further. Her enthusiasm never lapsed and was infectious.
