What people are saying about Nafplio
-Mycenae and Epidaurus are wonderful historical sites, definitely worth seeing; -Besides the main sites, we also made stops for the Corinth Canal, the Treasury of Atreus (Tomb of Agamemnon) and Nafplion; -Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, her English was very good, she could paint a picture with words; -The staff picked us up from our hotel, the ride was smooth; -The one problem with our itinerary: lunch was served at a hotel in the middle of nowhere (4 km from Nafplion) and took quite a long time (over 1 h); my partner and I were not hungry and would have preferred to spend more time visiting, as we were allowed only 30 mins in Nafplion and 45 min in Mycenae to walk around on our own (the rest of the time was spent with our guide, who gave us an extensive historical background of the place). All in all, we really enjoyed the trip. We would not have been able to visit everything on our own and having a guide explain everything to us made the trip even more interesting.
We liked our guide very much. The bus was good. We were picked up from the hotel, taken to the bus terminal of Keytours and there we needed to change the bus, but it was easy. During the day we saw Corinth canal, Epidauros, Mycenae and a lot more. Very interesting. We weren't happy with the lunch. We haven't booked it advance because we saw the other reviews saying that there are other places, but there weren't. So we went to the same restaurant with the group and ate a la carte. The food was very average, but looked a lot better than the others who had booked the lunch in advantage. Summa summarum: definitely worth to go!
Interesting places to visit. The activity will not disappoint you at all. Regarding the organization and local agency: quality of the service was ok, with an experted guide who completed the experience with many historical data. serious and puntual. To improve: enlarge the visit of the historical sites (about half an hour). You spend many time at the bus to arrive and then the visit is a bit quick to enjoy the places easily
Good historical value if you're into history. Mildly underwhelming if you don't know much about ancient Greek history. The tour itinerary was disappointing as you only have 45 min to explore an entire archaeological site; however, the material was fascinating and the sites were mysterious and enjoyable. Wouldn't recommend to an average traveller-historian, Delphi tenfold superior if you're considering an excursion.
It was a great well organized tour. They pick up from our hotel right on time. All 3 locations were fantastic and guide was very informative in English. It also includes admission ticket fees. I would highly recommend for anyone to go on this tour. The country side was lush green and drive by ocean was fantastic.
