Full description
Begin your day trip with a pick-up at your Athens hotel or apartment early in the morning. In just an hour from the city of Athens, you will pass through the famous Corinth Canal ( short stop ) which connects the Saronic to the Corinthian Gulf and literally divides mainland Greece from the Peloponnese.

Enjoy a walking tour and hear all myths and history as you pass from the Cyclopean Walls, the Lion’s Gate, the Royal Tombs of Agamemnon and his wife Clytemnestra and the Treasury of Atreus.

The next stop is picturesque Nafplion, the first capital of modern Greece, with its Venetian Palamidi fortress and the fortified islet of Bourtzi  located in the middle of the harbor. There, you will have a fun break and have an optional lunch in a traditional restaurant with Greek cuisine. Enjoy some free time and walk in the narrow streets of this beautifull town with classical buildings dating back to the 16th -17th century.

Continue on to Epidaurus and visit the breathtalking ancient theatre. Have a unique opportunity to hear all about the history of the 4th century UNESCO world heritage highlight and one of the best preserved classical Greek theaters still used today due to its amazing acoustics.

Excursion planned at the last moment because we had to leave for Mykonos but because of the wind we were stuck on Athenes. So Saturday afternoon I reserve this getaway for the next day, Sunday. Impeccable !!! The driver sent me an email indicating the pick up time at my hotel with unexpected speed! He was awesome !! we even made the guided tour during the crossing of Athens. Only downside: the guide precisely, who did not travel with us ... so we found each time at places of appointment but suddenly, no more explanations during trips ... Places are worth the detour !!

Very good service, very good everything. And thanks a million for looking for me again, my hotel was located on a pedestrian street, they sent me an email with the pick-up address (last night) but I was in unwanted and I did not see it, a thousand apologies. The only bad thing was that they were 42 degrees and the AA of the combi did not cool in the back of the combi.

Long day but worth it for the views and the archaeological sites

The trip was well organised with the tour van arriving on time. Our driver was keen to give us information about living in Athens which was interesting. The various sights are definitely worth seeing and we met our guide for each at the various locations. The meet & greet was well organised and I never felt I was being abandoned at any point. We were shown all the important areas and artifacts in the the museums which was good. My only criticism would be that we had a very long lunch break in Nafplio which seemed longer than necessary. Overall however I would recommend the tour if you want a small group experience and want to see these archaeological sites.
