A wonderful and memorable day out at Nafplio and Epidaurus through Ammon Express. The tour was run very well and was flexible to accommodate my requests. A very big thank you to Gary who was lovely, fun and knowledgeable and made my trip worthwhile, and I highly recommend her! Also many thanks to Alexandros who not only drove us around but also provided many insights into the places we visited. A special thanks to Maria who also joined the tour and made the outing all the more enjoyable. We all had such a great time that it felt like we were good friends, which you don't often experience on such kind of tours. A highly recommended tour to those who want to experience more than just the Athens city and to also experience a tour like a local! Will definitely join another tour with them when I'm in Athens again :)
This whole trip was just incredible. I'd like to start by giving a shoutout to our guide Panos who was super accommodating and great in every way. The tour consists of visiting a large fort on top of a mountain near Nafplio as well as roaming around the city. We went during the winter and we got lucky because the weather was nearly perfect the whole day. The sights were great, the food was great, the town was great, and I would highly recommend partaking in this tour. Just be aware that when they advertise a luxury vehicle with wifi, it's a regular van with semi-decent wifi. This wasn't really an issue, but thought it was worth pointing out.
Most enjoyable part of my solo trip to Athens, where my guide Bill (a historian + archaeologist!) was highly entertaining, informative, considerate and respectful. They continued with the trip even though I was the only participant that day, and I had the undivided attention of the guide who was well versed in greek mythology, social & cultural issues, history and geography. Highly recommended to people seeking a deeper insight and understanding to the country - a professional guide of this calibre beats any guidebook or wikipediaing or googling.
Absolutely loved it! The tour guide was amazing. Luckily the other people could not turn up so myself and my mum had a private tour. Very helpful people, gave amazing facts and did not bore us at all. Would definitely recommend others to go. Beautiful place, great scenery. Would of loved to spend more time at the castle.
The site at Mycenae was amazing. Lots to see and it was wonderful seeing the Lions Gate up close. The museum there was small but good. The golden mask and other important objects are in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. The restaurant was standard and drinks , even cokes , coffee, or tea were extra.
