Excellent driver makes a difference
Jamie_H, Apr 2024
It is impossible to see all three exceptional town or archaeological sites in a day without an excellent driver from the Athens Tour. Spiros is very professional, well-mannered and knowledgeable tour manager and driver to us. We highly recommend this private tour to family as you can travel at your own pace and privacy.
Lovely trip
Seema_P, Apr 2024
We absolutely loved every moment of our trip to Mycenae. A very big thank you to Costa our driver for the day. He was very kind and gentle with my 10 year old. He even stopped and picked an orange for us to try on our way to Nafplio. This is a self guided tour, but Costa was very informative of the locations we were going to visit for the day.
Very worthwhile and nice...

Our guide Notis was excellent in providing us with a wonderful experience. Not only did we learn about the wonderful sites that we visited but also about Greek culture and the language. We very much enjoyed the day!

Many sites to see
KarenDugosh, Mar 2024
I traved with my family who ranged in age from 20 to 76. The tour allowed us to see lots of amazing sites that were fairly far from Athens, and our driver Panos was very knowledgable and friendly. The sites themselves were defintely worth seeing, especially Mycenae and Epidarus. Just make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. We had a lovely lunch in Nafplio at a restaurant recommended by Panos and they were able to accomondate the vegetarians in our group. I highly recommend this tour!

A memorable!
Mark_R, Nov 2023
Our guide was a wealth of knowledge concerning every stop we made during the day plus everything you would want to know about Ancient Greek history. During the day we saw everything on the agenda plus a stop in Nafplion for a wonder Greek lunch. We were lucky to have a guide who so knowledgeable of the places we visited. Overall, it was a wonderful day and well worth our time. If you want to get out of Athens, and experience something different, this is the tour. Thanks Greg for a wonderful and memorable day.

Mycenae a Must with Petros
Rob_R, Nov 2023
Petros (Peter) was an excellent tour guide. He was punctual, attentive and kept us one step ahead of the crowds. He did an outstanding job catering to our every need. He even kept our teenage son engaged. I don’t have enough nice things to say about Petros. I would definitely recommend him and the tour.

Magical Mycenea and Napfilo port; Epidaurus theatre a gen
Maribelle_B, Oct 2023
We had a wonderful day visiting the magical site of Mycenea. A nice break from the hecticness of Athens; Port of Napfilo also a gem with a nice walk on the fortress; Theater Of Epidaurus also a gem. Would highly recommend as a day trip for kids and lovers of ancient history and Homer.

Trip to Mycenae & Epiduras
RM_P, Oct 2023
Notis knows a lots of history and generously shared his informatiion and pride in Greece. Best to prepare for reading up on the sites because Notis is not a registered guide and couldnt accompany me in. But he was fun, animated, enthusiastic and accomodating.. Lunch place had great view. The sites were well worth visiting.

A perfect day in the countryside
andrea_g, Oct 2023
Really enjoyed learning and seeing the historical sites that we were introduced to. To know/see that thousands of years ago the Greeks were capable of building structures that have stayed the test of time is truly remarkable. Our guide, Spiros, was a wealth of information. Totally enjoyed having him as our guide.

A great day trip - worth the splurge.
Joan_C, Sep 2023
We really enjoyed our trip to Mycenae, Epidauras and Nafplio. - Taking a private trip was a bit of a splurge, but we felt it was worth it. Our driver, Apostolos, was wonderful! - He spoke perfect English and was friendly and engaging, and was much more than just a chauffeur. He was extremely knowledgeable, and although he did not go into the sites with us, he shared lots information about the geography and the rich history of what we were going to see.

Sites good but commentary sketchy
Anne_T, Sep 2023
Theater at Epidaurus wa most memorable. The canal at Corinth was very interesting. Unfortunately driver was not well informed about sites as were some of our other drivers and difficult to understand his English.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Thank you for your review. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. We will investigate this issue as all our drivers are professionals with many years of experience, and fluent in English. Please note that although they are knowledgeable and can provide fascinating commentary about the sites you will visit in fluent English, they are not archaeologists or licensed tour guides who accompany you to the sites. Thank you.
A Wonderful Full Fay Tout
Mark_B, Sep 2023
A wonderful day with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. The sites were very interesting and lunch on the water was both beautiful and tasty. The company worked with us to optimize the tour so that we could be dropped off at Metochi to catch the last ferry of the evening to Hydra.

TOO EXPENCIV AND MORE MONEY TO ADD TO THIS TRIP !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ionel_G, Aug 2023
the trip was already expensive,and on top of it ,at the site of each ancient ruins, we still had to pay entrance fees !!!!!!!!-why it was not included in the original, already high price of this trip ????????!!!!!!!!!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations, however, it is explicitly stated on our product page that the admission tickets are NOT included in the price. Regarding the price, we would like to inform you that it is a value-for-money product as it is amongst the cheapest in its category based on the offered quality. This is a very popular product, and all of our customers are extremely satisfied. We try very hard to provide best-in-class services, and this review is not representative of our services. It is unfair to our company and does not help future travelers. Thank you.
Beautiful Day in Greece
Casey_W, Aug 2023
Anthony gave an incredible day! From our first stop at Corinth Canal to our last stop at Epidaurus every stop was incredible. The fortress was quite impressive and lunch was delightful. Even had a little time to stroll in Nafplio. After exploring Athens this tour is the perfect compliment to see this part of Greece!

A great time in the Peloponnese
Chris_W, Jul 2023
This was a great experience for the family. Pickup was right on time and our driver Nikos was great. He was informative and engaging throughout the trip and did everything he could to make us comfortable throughout the day. Mycenae, Epidaurus, and Nafplio are all great visits in their own ways, and this trip was a great opportuntity to see some of Greece outside of Athens without the hassle of renting a car. Definitely a great experience.

Accommodating and great experience!
Victoria_H, Jul 2023
Vasilis was our driver for this wonderful experience. He was very accommodating and a very safe driver. He helped us get to each location with ease. Most of the sights were closing at noon due to the heat so he arrived earlier for pick up so we would be able to get to the Mycenaean ruins and Epidaurus before everything closed. He was extremely punctual, meeting us out in front of our apartment complex right on time. He even was able to drive all the way up our street to meet us, which a lot of drivers did not do because of our location directly across from the Acropolis. He provided plenty of waters and let us explore at our leisure making sure to point out the significant sights to visit along the way. I highly recommend Vasilis for this tour.

Fun Tour - Even in the Midst of the Summer Heat
Marc_G, Jul 2023
First, we somehow went on this driving tour during the hottest days in Greece of the year. We were not prepared for that. However, our driver kept us feeling refreshed and engaged. He was amazing - his voice was soothing, excellent driver. The only downside was that he was such a good driver that it slowly lulled us into naps! The first stop at the canal was great for getting some coffee and snacks. We appreciated all of the stops - minus the heat - and learning about the culture. We also appreciated all of the recommendations - when you visit the Epidaurus, be sure to see the Temple's ruins. I don't know why people miss this, it is such a great addition! Check out all of the museums when you visit. They add to the overall story. Our favorite - and where we spent most of our time - was Nafplio. We wished it was cooler and we could walk around a bit more - but we enjoyed what we could see. Xenon was a great food choice. Overall - we recommend this tour. Had we known about their overall services, we probably would have relied on them more for transportation.
