Guide was knowledgeable and made the subject matter palatable. We had some trouble with three guests that showed up late at the start and at every site, but between the driver and the guide they ensured that we still had adequate time to discover without an ill feelings developing.
Our guide was superb. The sites magnificent. Even the lunch, at a hotel restaurant was quite good, although too much food. The guide was knowledgeable, her English faultless, and her demeanor professional and focused on providing info on the sites. esyaurant was .
This trip was very enjoyable and rich in history. Our guide was friendly and surprisingly knowledgeable. The travel from Athens through these amazing sites was comfortable as we went through beautiful countrysides.
The lunch was prearranged hotel food and spoiled the experience for me. I would have rather gone to a taverna, but they work the timing out that makes anything but the hotel lunch possible. I was dropped off at the wrong hotel and had to use my map to find my way back to the correct drop point and then to my hotel. After a long day, that was the last thing I wanted to do. When I complained to the supervisor the next day, all as he said was that that was wrong and stupid. Buyer beware. Hint, don't get off the bus until you are 100 sure you are at the correct location.
It was a memorable experience and a must see for all who care about history! We were so lucky to have Joy, for our guide, a lady with such vast knowledge of history, mythology and history of art, and the ability to present it in perfect English and French. She was very helpful and gave us valuable information and tip to visit National Archeology Museum in Athens, to see the exhibits from Mycenae area. It was a joy to hear Joy's stories!
Guide is very knowledgeable. Tour is educational, especially if you're into Ancient Greek History. It was just unfortunate that it was raining the day I went. The guide is kind enough to lend me her extra umbrella.
I took this tour before visiting Athens world class archaeological museum, which was a fortunate happenstance. I had much more perspective about all the amazing artifacts found there. Our guide was outstanding, and it was a wonderful experience walking among the Mycenaean ruins. Agamemnons tomb was a highlight.
This was definitely worth a long day to see Mycenae and Epidaurus. The only thing I would change is the Lunch. We stopped between Mycenae and Epidaurus at a hotel for Lunch. The hotel was basically by it self in the middle of a field. So, you basically have to eat lunch here, there are no other options. I would have preferred to have had the hotel lunch at Nafplion, and thus had more options and more time to see Nafplion.
Loved this tour. Joy our tour guide was excellent and very informative. Would definitely recommend.
