"Bill"(if that's your real name...) was a fantastic, engaging, funny, and superbly knowledgeable guide. He's actually an archeologist with a masters degree, so his knowledge is exceptional. He was able to flow with the dynamics of the group and fluidly intersperse humor, history, mythology and science (with excellent English, all the while keeping his eyes on the road)! This tour is an absolute must and one we will never forget. He offered us the option to either sit down for lunch or do more of a 'grab and go' thing so we can keep walking around and touring. He made sure that everyone in our group was happy with the decision we made to sit down and eat. We did so many different things on this tour and felt so accomplished at the end of the day! Cannot recommend this tour group highly enough! (Their communication is also superb whether through WhatsApp emails or phone) On the 2-hour drive back we had very interesting philosophical discussions with him. Great great great!
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!
Small group, well knowledge guide, on time, meeting point is out of traffic jam.
