A passionate local guide shares intriguing facts about Greek art and history as you tour top archaeological sites, including the the stadium where the ancient Olympic Games took place.
I had a wonderful time on this tour! We saw a lot of the beautiful Peloponnese region and heard myths that brought the different sites to life. We even had the chance to see a Greek wedding and do an olive oil tasting! I wish we had had more time at a few of the sites but it was a great tour overall
This Classical Greece Tour was easily one of the best tours I have ever been on in my entire traveling career. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in authentic Greek culture and history. Everything went smoothly: bussing, dining, hotels, sightseeing, etc. However, it was our tour guide, Joy, who made this tour completely exceptional. She is friendly, approachable, responsible-- everything a tour guide must be. Not only is she highly knowledgeable, but she is so passionate about everything she does. She seemed to know every aspect and every little detail about each place we visited. She recalled the historical backgrounds of our points of interest as if she were telling an epic story. It was this way of conveying information that made the entire trip-- the history, culture, people, myths-- come to life. Her engaging way of conveying information made every person grasp onto every word she said, completely enticed by her knowledge. Even my sixteen year old daughter, who is often bored and disengaged during such history-based trips, was eager to hear more about even the most tedious details. She remarks that she learned more on this three day tour than she has from years of history class. Joy was able to take a beautiful country and put it into context for everyone on the tour.
The other aspects of this tour also exceeded my expectations. All the destinations were worthwhile and absolutely breathtaking. We were greeted with friendly people, beautiful sights, and a rich culture found nowhere else. The hotels were relatively clean and pleasant, the food was great, and transportation was efficient.
It is perfect for any traveler with three days to spare who is hungry for a taste of Greece.
Great, well paced tour with excellwnt accommodation in Amalia hotels. Our guide, Joy, gave great commentary and told us the related myths for each site. She made these ancient ruins come alive.
The highlight was our tour guide. She did a good job!
The tour was well organized, informative and a delight. Our guide was excellent, with a breath of knowledge that helped us to experience and learn about many eras of Greek history and culture, and a sense of humor as well. He struck a good balance between information and drawing an expressive picture of life at the sights we visited. The bus, bus driver and accommodations were excellent, while the food ranged for good to poor for one meal. The tour range on time and all staff were extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this tour and tour operator.
Incredible. The tour guide, Eleni, is a masters-educated archaeologist with in-depth knowledge of the areas you travel, the history, the legends, and is a master story teller. She is engaged the entire trip and makes you feel welcome at all times. George, the bus driver, also went out of his way to be welcoming and accommodating. Though there is considerable driving between site, it is a welcome time to read, relax, and rest. The feeling at the theater of Epidaurus, the mists in Delphi, and of course the triumphant architecture of Olympia, the treasures at Mycenea, and even the quiet and picturesque streets of Nafplion will stay in my mind for a lifetime. Thank you!
Knowledgeable guide. Landscape in Peloppenises is great. Fun to see and hear about sites were have heard about in school and readings.
I wish I could give this tour 10 stars--it was just brilliant! We got to see so much and the guide took such good care of us! I am incredibly satisfied with having done this trip and got to really enjoy history with Greece and fun sites. Highly highly recommended!
Excellent. Our tourist guide was very good. Off Peak season is the best time to see the sites because of less people and not scorching hot weather. Advice to those who will take this tour: be prepared to walk and hike mountains. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. It was one of the best tours I had.
Brilliant tour. Wonderful guide who had all the knowledge of Classical Greece. Stayed at great hotels and good dinners. Could not fault this tour. A must for all lovers of the classical Greece.
