So glad we did this! I will say that I was a bit confused about the fact that this didn't include tickets. I wasn't sure if we should try to buy them beforehand or not. But the tour started at a smaller site so it was super quick to buy tickets. The tickets needed are the ones for multiple sites for €30. Once the tour got started, our guide was informative and entertaining. She clearly knows her information and you can tell that she enjoys her job. I highly recommend this tour!

The guide (Kelly) was very good in telling the stories, which made the 4 hours pass by very quickly. I didn't want it to end. You do have to buy the entrance tickets to all the sites yourself (not included in the tour) which is 30 euros. So everything together it's almost 100 euros per person, which I think is quite expensive.

Such a fun historical tour. We saw some of the most beautiful ancient temples and buildings and learnt about the crazy stories behind them. Iffie or Effie (not sure how to spell her name) was our tour guide, she spoke amazing English and made the tour so enjoyable! I would recommend to anyone any age!
