Just returned from an unforgettable trip to the Peloponnese! Starting from Athens, we took a small Mercedes bus to the ancient city of Epidaurus, home of an ancient theater. The acoustics there are unbelievable and I think they said it seats 14,000. It is the most well preserved and largest of the theaters in Greece. Thinking about that it is hundreds of years older than Jesus blows my mind. Next, we headed to the charming town of Nafplio. Strolling through the picturesque streets, we got lunch, and did some yacht watching. I see why Rick Steves featured it on his Greece video. Our final stop was the historic site of Mycenae, the city of the legendary Agamemnon. It existed before the alphabet. The ruins are over 3000 years old. I saw a small tomb, and two giant tombs there. This trip was a perfect blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. Highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore the rich heritage of Greece! 🇬🇷

Our driver Kostas was wonderful and tailored the tour to suit our needs as the day was super hot. As a result we got to swim in a quiet beautiful swimming hole and really felt we had a personalized experience. As a result we booked an additional tour to Temple of Poseidon for later in our visit

The trip to Delphi was over 2 hrs but Katiana kept us informed with the stories and mythology about Delphi, the journey was part of the fun. Wonderful tour and lunch was well worth the cost and very enjoyable. Kudos to Katiana and Chris for a awesome day.

Excellent day trip around the major sites. Katarina was a lovely guide - enthusiastic and knowledgeable!

Theo is an amazing tour guide, he knows a lot when it comes to Greek history, very informative.
