The antient theater at Epidaurus was great, and the rest of the sights were interesting. I would recommend the tour.
Good combination of 2 relics in this tour.
This was a great tour, and a nice way to fit a lot of things in in one day. We spent about an hour at Mycenae, which was about enough time for us, but may be too short for others.
This tour was very good! Okay, everything must be quickly done because the full program but it didn't felt that way. The bus also stopped at the Corinth Canal and lunch was great.
A day well spent. The sites were impressive, the guide was informative, and the transportation was comfortable. The 'optional' lunch gave a choice between eating or not eating. The location was an isolated tour operator-owned or associated hotel on the road between Mycenae and Nauphlion.
Trip - not too much to see. only go for this trip if you have already been on the ones to Meteora or Delphi. Highlight for me was the tomb and the theatre. The landscape was pretty good though. Guide a bit rude. Basically told one of the co-passengers to shut up as the guide was speaking.
i chose this tour because it said that it goes to napflio apart from the rest of itenary however it stops in carpark to take a photo 6 km away when i questioned if it is going to napflio as stated in brochure they said no and just drove thru one street. the rest of the trip was ok and informative.
Epidaurus is gorgeous...Mycenae is ok. However, our tour guide was very detached and did not explain much. We did other tours with this tour company that were great... but this one not so much. They also take you to Amalia hotel for lunch which was not very good...
This a very long day trip - however enjoyable in places. The lunch let this trip down bit time - the place we stopped for lunch had some authentic tavernas and the trip had lunch at the biggest restaurant in town and the food was awful - not tradionally greek - a plate of grapes for dessert between 4 people - not good.
The hotel pick up and drop off was a very nice service, lunch was very good and a bargain for the price. The main reason I gave this a three star rather than a 4 or 5 star is because the air conditioning in the smaller bus did not really work, it was very hot, the guide really tried to answer all the questions, but some people just did not listen and she repeated things over and over to answer questions, also, she did not
look for a shady place to talk and we stood in the hot sun for long periods for her to repeat facts. The drive was very beautiful and the destination is well worth the trip.
Our guide was very difficult to understand, which resulted in missing a lot of the (I'm sure) wonderful information he was sharing with us. Finally, about 1/2 way through, he began to ask us if we understood what he was saying. That was better, as he slowed down and spoke English more clearly. Shame to have lost the first half of the narration though.
