  • Argolis: Full-Day Tour in Mycenae, Epidaurus & Nafplio

    1. Argolis: Full-Day Tour in Mycenae, Epidaurus & Nafplio

    Leave by the coastal road along the Saronic Gulf to the Corinth Canal, which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop). Drive to Mycenae, the Homeric city of Atreides, the city "rich in gold" of the ancient poets. Visit the Lion's Gate, the Cyclopean walls, the royal tombs and so forth. Depart for Nafplio through the fertile plain of Argolis, the picturesque town nestling at the foot of a cliff crowned by the mighty ramparts of the Palamidi Fortress (short photo stop). All over Argolis, you will find numerous interesting spots of attractions, which are scattered around, adorning the promising landscape.  Leave for Epidauros, to visit the theatre (4th-century BC) famous for its astonishing acoustics. Return to Athens by the National Road connecting Epidauros with Corinth. Lunch in Mycenae. Clients staying along the coast will depart for their hotels from the local tour op...

    the tour guide was good but it was both English and French which they didn't let us know beforehand. it was a good day out aside from the lunch which was appalling. cold lamb, cold moussaka stale fries, and some grapes for dessert. don't waste your money with the lunch option - order off the a la carte menu instead. note that there isn't a lot of time at each site which I was happy with but others may want more time.

  • From Athens: Bus Trip to Mycenae, Epidaurus & Nafplio

    2. From Athens: Bus Trip to Mycenae, Epidaurus & Nafplio

    Depart Athens with your friendly guide (archaeologist) by bus from the Halandri Metro station and reach the ancient city of Mycenae. Let the Cyclopean walls take your breath, and learn about the mysterious origins of this fantastic structure. Mycenae is considered the greatest and richest kingdom of the later Bronze Age around 1350 B.C. Walk around the archaeological park, pass through the great Lionesses Gate, explore the Ancient Treasure of Atreus also known as King’s Agamemnon Tomb as well as the Tomb of Clytemnestra. Admire the Palace and the Gold Mask of Agamemnon. After Mycenae enjoy a traditional Greek lunch in the beautiful seaside city of Nafplio. Naflpio used to be the capital of Greece before Athens and its architecture has Venetian, Byzantine, Ottoman and, Modern Greek influences. Admire the main attractions like the Castle of Bourtzi, the Acronauplia and the Castle of Palam...

    This tour efficiently covers three places (four, if you count the Corinth canal stop) in one day. Easy to book and easy to communicate. It is a bit rushed for Nafplio stop but if you are short on time and don't need a deep dive to the archaeological sites, this tour is all you need. The transportation was comfortable and the drive was pleasant. Our tour guide is enthusiastic, friendly and really made an effort to accommodate people's different needs. One suggestion is if the tour can be extended another 1-2 hours in Nafplio, it would be perfect!

    3. Mycenae and Epidaurus: Full-Day Tour from Athens

This full-day trip from Athens provides the opportunity for you to explore this treasure of the ancient world. Traveling by air-conditioned bus, you’ll make a brief stop at the Corinth Canal, a 3.9-mile engineering wonder connecting the Gulf of Corinth with the Aegean Sea.

    It was really nice. The guide knew a lot and could explain everything and answer every question. The bus was great too and we were picked up really near our hotel. However, at arriving on site of the first stop we found out that there are actually free admission tickets for EU citizens under 25 which neither GetYourGuide nor the official tour company ever mentioned. We paid the full price of 100€ which included two admissions fees of 12€ each. If we had known that admission was free for us, we would have never booked this expensive trip and found another way to get to these attractions. GetYourGuide should include a feature where customers can add their age and nationality and then adapt the price to that because I have now paid 48€ that would have not been necessary if I had known about the free admissions.

    Effi is a great guide, she provided good knowledge about the sites and warm welcoming :) Nikos also drove smoothly along the roads, that was pretty cool. The bus was climatized and fresh. The only one bad point is that we didn't have so much time to visit the museum of Mycenae, which gathers a collection of amazing gold treasures. The theater in Epidavros was impressive! Overall, it was a good trip

If you’re interested in ancient Greece history and staying in Athens, this is a perfect choice for you. Mycenae and Epidaurus are must-see destinations for everyone who enjoys visiting and learning about ancient landmarks and Napflio is a beautiful coastal city with many instagrammable spots. Athena & Gary were very helpful, funny and entertaining guides. They shared with us a lot of information about visited places, history of Greece, Greek mythology and modern Greek language & culture. We were travelling with a small group of 7 people from 4 different countries what made our trip even more interesting. The guides were open to adjust the schedule to our need so in Nafplio one part of the group enjoyed lunch while the other were walking around the city. Meeting point was very easy to access via metro and travelling by bus was great because we had a chance to see some really beautiful coastal landscapes. All Covid-related safety rules were followed. Highly recommended!!

Theodore and Athena were informative, friendly and flexible. Really great guides who know everything there is to know about Greek history and mythology. Do take the opportunity to pick their brains! We had an affordable lunch in Nafplio and although this tour does not pick you up from your airport, it is easy to get to the meeting place- a metro stop. We did not find it a problem. We were also able to safely keep our suitcases on the bus during the day. Would recommend.

It was a very interesting visit, easy to follow, and the guide was very knowledgeable. What a great way to spend our day!

Was an interesting tour with a knowledgeable and caring guide! Felt like a different world sometimes…

Small group, well knowledge guide, on time, meeting point is out of traffic jam.
