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.
This is an efficient way to see important ancient sights around Athens. This was great in a few different ways : The distances and sights covered is difficult to accomplish independently within the 3 days. Our guide, Maria Anna was very knowledgeable and the info gleaned from her was invaluable to my 12yr old history buff. The dinner and rooms for the 2 nights were good choices, lunches were pre ordered and on our own dime. Our 20 seater minibus was adequate, and the companionship developed over 3 days with our fellow travellers was the icing on the cake. The pace was hectic, with regular breaks. Have already recommended this to my friends.
Very nice tour, we had plenty of good explanations from the guide whose knowledge was amazing!! The driver was very good, he drove not too fast, not too slow, and very carefully :) which is not always easy depending on the roads! The hotels were fine, mostly with a very nice view!
It was amazing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She talked about the history of a place and the ancient myths surrounding it. It was very well organised.
Cristina did a terrific job. She was one of the best guides I have ever had. She made the tour outstanding.
