We went on a trip to Greece on our own and a mean of transport was one of our worries. When we found this tour to Mycenae and Epid...aurus, we decided to go. The tour itself was very good and we are very satisfied! <Translated by Veltra.com> more
The tour takes you to places that are hard to reach on your own in one day. I went during the low season, so our group was the onl...y one a the ruins, so we were able to take a lot of pictures without a hurry. Probably during the high season, there are public buses there every hour, but couldn't find any this time, so I'm glad I went on this your and was bale to see all those places comfortably. The other participants were mainly form Europe or America and I enjoyed having a chat with some of them. The guide had a deep knowledge about Greece and Europe and it was fun to listen to him. <Translated by Veltra.com> more
It was an efficient tour. All places we visited were impressive, guides explanations were very informative and interesting. The bu...s was clean and comfortable. We've spent about an hour in the ruins of Mycenae, which was just enough. The ruins were great, but the Corinth Canal was beyond my expectations, definitely something worth experiencing! <Translated by Veltra.com> more
I didn't have enough confidence to go by myself by bus or by trains, so I decided to book this tour. The tour was in English ...and they made sure to inform us about departure times and main points of the tour. <Translated by Veltra.com> more
The overall trip was nice. The pick up from hotel is about an hour early which seems little challenging. This tour takes you to al...l the places listed but Corinth canal and epidaurus are only places worth visiting. Rest places are all ruins. I would recommend this tour to only people who enjoy archaeology. It becomes little boring otherwise. more
