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.
Our guide was awesome, very knowledgable and the trip was amazing
Mycenae is ok, but the Epidaurus theater it was awesome. Play with acoustic was extraordinary. Try to sing a song if you decide to go there.
Overall the tour was good and basically as expected. I would however have preferred a short time in Nafplion rather than the stop at the ceramic store. The tour guide, whilst obviously knowledgable, did not have an outgoing personality and did not seem passionate about the sites and this did detract from the enjoyment of the day.
great trip and great guide who was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
The tour was great. We had learned a lot on the history of Greece. A travel should get this tour for them to understand and appreciate the history of Greece.
Our tour guide had excellent knowledge and passion in sharing it.
The guide was nice and the tour covers two interesting archeological sites. The only thing is: we got 30 mins in Epidaurus to explore the wide area, but wasn't possible in 37C heath at 3 o'clock!
It's a great day trip! The guide was good and the time in each attraction was sufficient.
Book it with lunch as there's no other option to eat when we make a pause.
A full day of ruins, history, and sunshine! A great day trip out of the city! Also, the included lunch was great and at a nice hotel restaurant. Tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable.
Well organized with a useful commentary.However, on all three tours the tour organisers reneged on the pickup at our hotel, Hotel Katerina, despite it being listed as one of the pickup points.They should be admonished for this failure to deliver.
It was good. The Lunch was great. The tour guide was very informative, funny and nice.
the trip was very good,our tour guide was good,explained everything about the history.the weather was fabulous,mycenae was beautiful,surrounded by mountains,cool and fresh air,flowers were in bloom.the walk around the ruins was very nice.the scenery was spectacular all round.in epidaurus which was after lunch,the theatre was splendid .so a must visit if you are visiting athens for the first time and are interested in history.we had bought our lunch at hotel amalia where the tour had a lunch break.it was nice.
The antient theater at Epidaurus was great, and the rest of the sights were interesting. I would recommend the 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.
The kids under 18 are free to enter both Mycenae and Epidaurus archeological sites, so it will be more reasonable for the kid to charge less 14 than an adult. Epidaurus is great place to stop. The town Nauplia has only 15 mins to stop , it is really short to do anything.
Mycenae was beautiful. I would have liked more time to explore the ruins at Epidaurus.
The historical sites were fantastic, a must see, however the tour guide was not great. Also, we were rushed through Mycenae just so we can have an hour pit stop for lunch at a hotel in the middle of nowhere, and then dropped off in a local town for 40 minutes with nothing to do. The people who took the no lunch option had no choice but to buy lunch at the hotel as there was nothing else.
