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.
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,
The tour was awesome. The history is amazing. Our tour guide was mina was professional and kept us entertained throughout the drive.
Great Tour. It was a long day but very worthwhile. My only criticism is that I would have preferred a little more time at Epidaurus. Fantastic sights.
A wonderful trip with a very dedicated guide, who had excellent knowledge of the history of these sites to pass on to us. It was great to stop at the Corinth Canal and pass through farmlands close to Athens.
The trip to Mycenae and Epidaurus was both interesting and educational and well worth the time spent on both these places. Also loved Napflion and wished we had spent a little more time there.
I enjoyed the day trip, the lunch was very pleasant, the only drawback was I would have liked a bit longer at Mycenae to have a look around.
A lot of time spent on the bus, but the destination was superb. Guide was knowledgeable.
Tour was much more detailed than we expected. Besides Mycenae and Epidaurus we went by Tryns, Argos and old Corinth plus the Corinthian canal. Lunch was great, the trip was great. The guide did a good job . Our guide spent a lot of our time at Mycenae explaining which made it really hard to take in the whole site. For most people there probably was enough time (1 hour) but I taking detailed pictures for my classroom presentations so I had to leave the group mid tour to climb to the top and work my way around. Another 15 minutes would have been better plus we did not have time for the museum associated with the site. Lunch was awesome and the trip was great except for the time at Mycenae.
First of all we had a very sufficient guide - excellent!
Perhaps we could have wanted a little more time in Mycenae.
The lunch restaurant was very nice, and a good meal too.
Perhaps too much time was spent at the start in the morning because of fetching people who was not really meant to take part in the excursion.
But all in all very satisfied with the tour.
We really enjoyed our tour of Mycenae and Epidaurus. We got to see a lot and got lots of interesting information from our guide, Daphne, who was fantastic. My wife and I felt like we had plenty of time to explore the sites. The tour provided a good balance between guided time and free time for exploring. We also enjoyed the lunch.
As with most archeological sites, this is up there amongst the best.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Good organisation and a welcoming and informative guide. BUT I disagreed with her on two points 1) the allied ships at Salamis were not smaller and lighter than the Persian ships, quite the opposite according to Herodotus, although I know this is not the popular belief, and 2) Pheidippides's last word(s) were not 'Nenikekamen' (sorry, no Greek font on computer) 'We have won' as your guide stated, but 'Chairete, nikaomen' - 'Rejoice, we are victorious'. That aside, everything else was great and I would recommend your service to anyone.
