    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 the place and the guide -unfortunately I cannot remember her name, she was a Greek lady and her grasp of English was fantastic! A great professional. The impressive Epidaurus theatre was the highligh of the trip, a true gem, but we also managed to get to see interesting sites like the lions door and Agammenons grave in Mycenae and also had a short stop for photos by the Corinth channel. All in all, it was a perfect day. 100 recommended!

    Much too overpriced. Normally viator offers you small coaches for about 10 people, but somehow in Greece they decided to change to big busses designed for more people although on this particular tour it wasn't even filled. If I wanted to go on such a large scale tour, I could have gotten pretty much the same tour somewhere else for a much cheaper price than here. The sights were really pretty and the tour guide... Leila?? was very knowledgeable and shared lots of information during the busied. However how they managed the time was terrible! This tour includes a short stop at the former capital, Nafplio right after lunch, which, might I add is in the middle of absolutely nowhere! They could have easily dropped those off who didn't book the tour with lunch included off over there it is LITERALLY a two minutes ride with the bus. But no, they decided to just leave us at the Hotel for an hour, which could have been used to see Nafplio. Due to this terrible arrangement, the time given to us at the town was 10!!!! minutes only! Another thing, but this might depend on the tour guide you get, is how not enthusiastic she was at Epidaurus. After we went to the theatre she just said The rest is quite disappointing so you can just explore on your own. Not really sure if this is the attitude a tour guide should have.

    Should start a Mycenae tour before seeing Athens as this is the beginning. The guide will never disappoint you with wonderful historic story telling.

    First, the hotel pick up by the bus was on time...very good. Second, the van/bus was clean and modern..very good. Third, the driver got us home... Very good. Fourth, the guide knew her stuff. She told interesting and accurate stories/information. She was the best. Fifth, Chat Tours in Athens is good

    It was an amazing experience and affordable. We visit the Corinthian Channel, Epidaurus and Mycenae. Our guide, Ephy, was extraordinary and she supplied us a lot of information, interesting stories and miths. Highly recommended for a 10 hours trip and a very comfortable voyage.

    Apart from a little difficulty with the Hotel pick up which was a Hotel issue tip: wait at the reception desk and not the entrance and mention to reception who you are and who you are waiting for! the tour proceeded very efficiently and the visits to the Corinth canal and Mycenae were both very interesting and spectacular. Epidaurus theatre was superb but perhaps a wander in the other ruins could have been included. Lunch was good if a little soulless in a large modern hotel. Our guide was lovely and kept us amused with Greek myths. Thoroughly recommended.
