Our trip from Athens to Mycenae was quite enjoyable. First off, the mini-bus was actually mini, a cute Fiat touring van, not a giant tour bus packed to the brim. We got lucky because it was a rainy day and we ended up having a private tour. Our guide, Theo, was very kind and respectful, and a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge. Being a PHD student of European History, he was clearly very interested in and passionate about the historical sights and mythology of Greece. Theo continually provided us with stories and history that greatly enriched the experience of visiting the sites. We also engaged in some friendly conversation about modern Greek culture and struggles, it was very interesting to get a local's opinions. It should be noted that the guides don't actually come into the historical sights with you. Overall definitely recommended.
Bill was a wonderful guide, not only knowledgable but very friendly and easy to get along with on a personal level. He couldn't come in the sites with us, but he made sure to tell us a lot about what we would see beforehand, and answered any questions we had after the visits. It was rainy/stormy for most of the day but we still had a great time. If I ever come back to Greece I'll be sure to book an excursion with Ammon Express again!
I had a brilliant experience with the team. Despite the rain, our guide kept everyone’s spirits and energy high. He informed us about not only the history of the sites, but also on the drive between the landmarks. He had lots of knowledge about the history of Greece and Athens, as well the myths and legends of Greece. I’d highly recommend this for anyone who visits Athens.
Truly prepared guide, he never left us except to enter the sites, sociable, nice and definitely to recommend this excursion and more, excellent organization
The tour is well organized, the guide very competent and friendly
