  • 3-Day Ancient Greek Archaeological Sites Tour from Athens

    3. 3-Day Ancient Greek Archaeological Sites Tour from Athens

    This exciting 3-day tour takes you to the most important archaeological sites of classical Greece. Providing a superb introduction to some of the myths of the ancient world, you will visit the tomb of Agamemnon in Mycenae, the Temple of Apollo and Oracle at Delphi, and the altar of the Olympic flame at Olympia. You will also make short stops in the cities of Tripolis and Megalopolis, drive past the mighty Corinth Canal, and see the charming harbor town of Nafpaktos. Day 1: Epidaurus – Nayplia - Mycenae Following your departure from Athens, visit the Corinth Canal on the Saronic Gulf and admire the miraculous 19th-century feat of engineering. Continue to Epidaurus to tour the ancient theater, world famous for its outstanding acoustics. Proceed to Nafplia, former capital of the First Hellenic Republic, and drive through the plain of Argos. Upon arrival in Mycenae, visit ...

    Definitely take this tour if you are interested in a good overview of the archeological sites. Our great guide Christina would usually first take us to the most relevant spots and explain their history, and then give us some free time to explore them further on our own (or sit down and relax). She was very nice and knowledgeable (though sometimes she oversimplified a bit), had a wonderful English and a great way to interleave historical commentaries with ancient myths, information on modern Greece and trivia, and this made the time spent on the couch go faster. The hotels were quite nice and at least four stars, but this could depend on availability. Food was just appropriate. Unfortunately the sites are quite far apart, but going there for longer on your own would probably take at least an extra day. At the end of the last day we switched to the couch of the 1-day tour to go back to Athens. The new guide was quite worse, luckily there was really nothing more of interest.

Our tour guide Costas was fantastic at explain current day Athens and covering a wide range of Greek Mythology and how it relates. The bus was clean and the driver was wonderful. I really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to anyone. The lunch included was also very delicious.

Fantastic trip to an amazing place with a brilliant guide. Enough stops for food and photo opportunities. It's a long trip but you are constantly taught about the places you are travelling through by the guide, and the scenery is beautiful, so it's never dull.
