Venture south of Athens to discover highlights of the Peloponnese and visit two UNESCO sites in a single day. Cross the Corinth Canal to leave mainland Greece, and enter the mythical kingdom of Agamemnon at the ancient ruins of Mycenae. Explore the historic harbor town of Nafplion, and step inside the classical Greek theater at Epidaurus, a 4th-century venue still prized for its acoustics. A small group size lends a more personal touch to this diverse, full-day tour.

This was an excellent day, the vehicle was comfortable and air conditioned and the driver was safe and helpful. Patroula the guide at both sites was very informative and pleasant. Nafpoli where we had a 1.5 hour lunch stop is lovely and I would like to spend more time there. There is some uphill walking, mainly at Mycenae as climbing to the top of the theatre at Epidaurus is not necessary in order to view it - Mycenae is at the top of a hill.
The guide didn't speak. He was always ahead of us avoiding questions. It seems that at the last moment, they didn't have a guide and substituted him with this person. If it wasn't for the beautiful places, this tour would have been a complete disaster! Viator should be very aware of booking tours with the Company Getaways Greece!
If it wasn't for the beautiful places that we visit, this tour was a disaster because of the guide. He didn't explained anything, and he was bothered when we asked any question about the history of each site. Beware if the booking tour company in Greece is GETAWAYS GREECE!
Dear client, Thank you for your time writting this review. Official tour guides are contracted proffesionals to escort the tours and privide live guide service inside the archeological sites. We will re- evaluate our associates to make sure they provide the expected service. Thank you once again.
I received an email the before the tour that it was cancelled. Since my time in Athens was very limited, I booked another tour to replace it so I don't waste time. When I opened my email on the night of the booked tour, I was being reminded on meeting time and place of the cancelled tour! I missed the tour! I got flip-flopped. Can I get my money back?
All three places were wonderful but what made this more spectacular where Vicki our guide and Spyros our driver. We have so far completed 7 of 12 Viator bookings and what makes these trip even better is paying the extra and booking the small group tours. Vicki and Spyros really made this day very special. Thanks to both of them for this special day!!!
awesome Epidaurus, Mycenae and Nafplio Small-Group Tour from Athens
, Sep 2018
I chose this tour - organized by Getaways Greece - based not only on the sites visited, but because they offer free-time in Nafplio for lunch and site-seeing. So many other tour companies only lunched in their own company restaurants, which sounded terrible from reviews I've read. With Getaways Greece, I was able to eat where I wished while in Nafplio. The driver and coordinator, Spiros, was kind and prompt even giving us options for how to arrange our day. The licensed tour guide, Vicky, was fresh from archaeological school and showed a true passion for the subject. The tour of Epidaurus was enhanced by her personal experience excavating at the site over the past two Summers. She showed us that Epidaurus was so much more than an ancient theater. The pacing was great for those of us less physically fit. I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was enjoyable, and we appreciated stopping at some places to buy souvenirs. The tours of Epidaurus and Mycenae were informative. We would have appreciated spending more time in Nafplio, but our time was cut short because the other couple on the tour wanted to head back to Athens after Epidaurus. We stopped in Nafplio for early lunch after Mycenae and were supposed to return after Epidaurus to spend some time exploring this quaint town. Sadly, my daughter's expectation of swimming in Nafplio as suggested by the driver when we were picked up for the tour was not going to happen because we did not return to Nafplio we made it up to her later in our vacation.
Great tour by a great tour guide Christos. Pick up was on time!
You have to do this tour, its one of the best in Athens in my opinion.
Definitely, recommend it, the guys are professional!
