This tour was very informative as well as a great value. The tour company came to pick us up at our hotel on time. Our tour guide Joy was engaged all the way from the first minute to the last. She did a good job of providing excellent information as well as stories to go along with the information. We spent a lot of time on the bus but our tour guide did a good job of helping the time go by. The breakfasts and dinners at the hotels were pretty good although the rooms themselves were average. If you are looking to learn a great deal about Greek history at a reasonable price, this tour is for you.
Wonderful places and good experience. Viator arranged everything properly.
Tour was good and particularly Guide was very informative and Hotel and Food was best.
Effi was a great tour guide.
Overall a very enjoyable and informative trip.
The tour was fantastic, I wasn't particularly blown away by the food options as some of the meals seemed to be tourist traps the tour guide we had, Joy, was incredible. I've not been on a tour with someone that knew so much information about basically everything. I would recommend the tour to folks that want the piece of mind that they're getting the best bang for their buck. This was worth the money and some of the views are just breathtakingly beautiful.
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 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.
Very knowledgeable tour guide and good driver. The tour is very well organize and the hotels are very comfortable.
We had a great guide and an excellent driver. The trip is properly planned, everything is thought about. Thank you very much for great experience, we are sure to travel with you again!
Excellent guide. Great meals and hotels. Sites were the perfect choice for such a limited time trip. No complaints!
Our tour guide, Joy, was very knowledgable, well organized and delightful. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see and learn about classical Greece.
Great bus, nice group, plenty of time for bio-breaks, and Eirene was a wonderful tour leader.
This was the first time we had taken a guided tour as a family and we really enjoyed it. The tour was well organized and operated and the sites visited were amazing. The Hotels were very good and arrivals and departures were organized without fuss. The brakfasts were very good the dinner buffets OK but could have been better. The lunch venues were good except for the first day when for some reason the opportunity for a pleasant lunch overlooking the harbour of Napflio is passed over for a meal in a rather souless wedding venue nearby organizers please note!. We give the tour five stars because of the outstanding tour guide Katerina who was very knowledgable about both archeological and mythological aspects of the sites and kept us enthralled with stories from Greek mythology, she also solved any logistical problems of the tour members. The driver George was also excellent and safe. There is a lot of driving but we really enjoyed seeing so much of the Greek countryside. Overall we can certainly recommend this tour for families and all ages.
I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide was amazing, lots of knowledge. The accommodations are beautiful with wonderful food. I didn't feel like I was stuck on a bus the whole time. Stops were spaced out at the right times. We had a small bus with a small group of people which also made the trip worth it! I highly recommond taking this tour.
