This is a very interesting whole day tour that allows you to visit two important sites outside of Athens and see the countryside in the NE Peleponese. Although lunch was not included in the cost of the tour, the restaurant chosen was excellent and very good value. Our guide was very informative not just at the sites but also en route. Our only quibble was that insufficient time (15 mins) was allocated to visit the museum at the Mycenae site which has some very interesting exhibits.
Mycenae - the place of Agamemnon, Klytemnaestra, Elektra and Orest. And very tight family connections w.r.t. the Trojan war. And now all in reality! Our guide, Ms. Tsigaridou, was simply excellent: profound knowledge paired with wit and intelligence. As a surplus a very good organization of all. Epidauros - centre of greek medicine and dramatic arts in a green and very relaxing area.
The tour was absolutely lovely and Anastasia was a fantastic guide! She knew basically everything. I personally didn't choose the lunch option as Nafplio is such a nice village and I didn't want to miss out on this. A lovely ice-cream and a fresh lemonade did a good job in the Greek heat as well.
Very Interesting places. . Learned a lot on Greek past. Our guide BIll was VERY helpful. Told us many interesting myth Greek stories and gave us a lot of interesting information of every place in the way. He also stopped the car for us in interesting places in the way with amazing photo spots !
It was an excellent tour. The bus was very comfortable, the guide was very well prepared and nice, her english was very good too. The tour was organised well. The only thing that I missed that during the way back to Athens we have seen some beautiful panorama points which would worth to stop.
