Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Mycenae and Epidaurus Day Trip from Athens. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The tour was a nice break from the throng of people in Athens. The tour guide was well informed about the sites and talked about them in three languages! And she gave us ample time to wander around. Lunch was a mixture of eating bad, cold, rubbery food in a nice, swanky hotel. No other option on where to eat lunch as it was the only place.
This was a wonderful experience. We would advise people to visit the National Archaeological Museum in Athens prior to taking this trip, to see the extraordinary grave finds from Mycenae. Our guide was both professional and very knowledgeable, entertaining us all day with her comments on the towns and the countryside we were seeing.
Best out of town road trip guide was personable and very informative. She also spoke very good English
Wonderful day, great guide, excellent lunch, on time, appreciated drop off at hotel after a long outing.
The tour guide was knowledgeable and shared history and stories about the area and told of current and historic use of sites along the route. We enjoyed a very nice lunch.
Excellent tour. Lots of stops to important places in Greek history. We also got a bonus photo stop at the Corinth Canal which was not listed in the tour. Should visit the Athens Archeological Museum before or after the tour to get the full picture as the finds are displayed there.

This history of these sights is staggering! A must if you have the time in Greece.
I very much enjoyed the trip. The bus was clean and comfortable. The driver skilled and the guide very knowledgeable and interesting. Lots of walking, stairs and inclines. Worth the effort but could be hard on someone who has artificial joints and is not in at least moderate shape. If you are afraid of heights keep in mind the city is in the hills with narrow walkways and not always railings.
I thought the tour was very interesting. I would have had a better time had there not been a toddler sitting behind me on the bus, kicking the back of my seat and generally creating a disturbance for everyone on the bus. I really believe you should set an age limit for these tours of at least 10 years of age. A long bus trip is not the place for a small child and, apparently, you can't depend on parents to have the good sense not to drag their small children along on these tours.
This one day trip was excellent. The guide was very informative and the trip offered additional sites to what were adverised, like the Corinth Canal. It was enjoyable to be in a small group, the lunch was very good and the tour well managed. Good value tour
Great Day tour with a really good overview of activity in the area. Highly recommended.
Great Guide. Was a great day would recommend this tour to friends
The sites visited were very interesting and the guide very nice. He gave us all kind of details about the monuments and history of Greece. The most negative part was the people at the trip: two families, with kinds, who didn't pay any attention to the monuments and explanations and slow us down.
Great tour guide who was able to answer our questions and provided a good background to the sites. Comfortable bus and decent lunch supplied.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very well informed and showed genuine interest in meeting our needs. Because the group was about ten people, we got through areas with enough time to allow for a stop in Naftlio, at a sea coast resort rather than just drive through the town. The stops in Mycenae and amphitheater in Epidaurus were well worth seeing . We were all very pleased with the delicious four course lunch at Amalia that was included with our tour. The drive to and from the sites allowed us to enjoy seeing the seacoast.
Very recommendable if you are a history lover. It's a pitty we could not stay longer at Nafplio
This trip is well worth it! The history and scenery are stunning, and a refreshing change from the city Athens. We found our guide very informative, but she certainly didn't want to walk around the sites. She told us all the information on the bus, or while we were standing as a group at the entrance. Then she simply cut us loose.
A thoroughly enjoyable day trip being both entertaining and informative. The guide was very good with a good balance of information and humour. The lunch at the Amalia Hotel was a very pleasant surprize with quality traditional Greek fayre and superb up market surroundings, an excellent advertisement for the hotel I thought. Would not hesitate to repeat the experience.
the tour was very good, the tour guide was excellent, but the lunch was not that good, I had a very bland chicken, no taste at all.
Great trip and a great Guide. Mycenae and Epidaurus were amazing. The only down side was the restraunt was a little disappointing.
A great out of city tour at an ideal pace. Very comprehensive descriptions of sites and short anecdotes of mythology kept us interested throughout the day. Dorina was clear in her quotations from the Homer books.
Corinth, Mycenae, Nauplius, Epidaurus were all given adequate exposure. The lunch was apparently to be typical greek, but personally I felt the menu could have been a bit different with a typical Greek sweet or dessert.
Very well organized tour. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable and it clearly showed that she enjoyed her job.
Picked up and dropped off at out hotel. Its a long tour but worth it. You get to see many sites. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Had plenty of time in all the locations-giving you time to walk around and take pictures. So much history. Allso, the lunch was very good,
