This was an exceptional experience with Kostas as our tour guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Mycenea with Kostas's excellent explanation of its history. We had plenty of time to explore the archaeological site. Our visit to Epidaurus was enriched by Kostas's detailed knowledge of the design of the amphitheatre and the fate of the ancient city. He took us to the castle above the Old City of Napflio and we were able to more fully appreciate the fortification system and the spectacular views across the port and beyond. We found the whole experience extremely worthwhile.

Beautiful and fascinating historical trip with a driver who told all kinds of interesting facts about Greece from then and now in excellent English. Excursion is quite expensive (actually not in relation to when you go on your own) to which must be added the entrance fee to both attractions. Nevertheless, we enjoyed it!

Exciting tour with a guide who is passionate about history, excellent

It was the perfect visit, exciting sites, time for the visited by ourselves with the possibility of soaking up the atmosphere of the places, explanations really up to the task (on the sites and on the city of Nafplion where we resided), in fact worthy of those given by university professors recruited by agencies specializing in long cultural trips (such as Clio and Intermèdes for example) of which my thesis director is a part (I therefore know what I'm talking about in matter). Which is more advice for the rest of our trip and a really friendly atmosphere, what more can I say except thank you and I hope to be able to visit other sites in the same way.
