FIRST I HAVE TO GIVE GREAT PROPS to Key tours ( and is why I rated it 4 instead of 2) !!
We screwed up and set our alarm clock on hour off (granted that they could have called up to our room when they picked us up in the first place but)
so we missed the bus.

We called the office and they worked with us to get a second bus that was on a different route to collect us. They could have just sad too bad and called it a day. SO THANK YOU!

as for the tour, it was nice but the 2 things which kind of put a damper on things was

1) the obligatory stop at the tourist trap shop where we were forced to listen to the sales pitch and expected to pay 3 times the price for items we saw in Athens before and after the trip.

for example Pythagorean cup for which they were charging 17eu - we bought in the plack for 3.

The other really disappointing this was lunch - we bought it including the package since we knew the time was limited and we didn't know how busy other places were going to be. Enough to say that - if you're on a greek tour you might expect some greek food!? Place they took us to served - though better cooked - wedding catering chicken breast with french fries and some lettuce you could get anywhere on the planet.

I MEAN COME ON - some Greek salad with feta and olives are too much to ask? Lamb, gyro's musaka!?
I mean hell, charge an extra $5 or something, I already spent like $160 per person, ! would much rather be charged some extra and get some kind of (hopefully good) regional or ethnic food than some generic cafetaria crap.

Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about Mycenae, Epidaurus, and Nafplio. She was helpful, easy to understand, and went out of her way to explain the small details of the various locations so that we could truly appreciate the history of each place.

A really interesting and enjoyable day trip. Very comfortable coach with stops at Corinth Canal, Epidaurus and Mycenae. Our guide Marianna was first class with excellent information clearly communicated. Having studied Greek civilisation and culture I was really looking forward to this and was not disappointed. This trip was the perfect preparation for going to the Archaeological Museum in Athens to see the amazing artifacts found in Mycenae. DONT MISS IT!!

Its really great to be able to take a day trip to Epidaurus and Mycenae. However, I do not recommend this tour. NOT ENOUGH TIME at the historic sites. The scenic drive to Epidaurus is nice but I would rather have gotten to the monument earlier, had less talking on site and had more time to explore the theatre and then the temple that is also on site. It wasn't possible to do both. This is a once in a lifetime tour for many people. So disappointing! SAME at Mycenae - unless you can take at least 30 minutes inside museum its difficult to humanise the site. The lunch was TERRIBLE (better if people BYO and we use this time to explore the sites) and the WORST part of it all was at the end we were driven to this AWEFUL gift store - again, better to spend time at the sites (and there are gift stores there if you wanted to buy souvenirs). The guide was mediocre - too much talking on site (could be done while we drove teach place). Has it ever occurred to the people who write the descriptions that we now live in 2019 and our perspective on history has changed. We don't always want to hear it from a male perspective - there should be at least some notion that history is subjective and that there are many other stories to be told. Where are the women???

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your time to send us your respected review and I feel sorry for not meeting your expextations on this occasion. Please kindly not that one of our business values is to fully respect the democratization the digital era bring to our guests to openly express themselves. At this point, I would like to kindly note that this specific tour has been successfully organized for the last 56 years and still remains one of our best sellers. Therefore, our schedule is tested and has been constantly revised over the years. I trust you were informed about the amount of time we would spend visiting these wonderful attractions that most guests find enough and reasonable in terms of a one day tour. Not to mention that we also offer a two day tour to Epidaurus and Mycenae for those guests who are willing to have more free time to this magnificent area and we also offer one day or multi day private tours for guests who are willing to pay a significant price difference and fully customize their schedule. As regards the rest of your comments, I trust that you had advised our descriptions before completing the booking process and also that our carefully selected and experienced guides are just describing the ancient history and the community structure as it used to be back then and the do not express their personal opinion about how communities should had ideally been structured. Hope this helps and I always remain at your service for any further help. Kindest Regards, Dimitris Bistolas | Μanaging Director

This was an amazing tour! My sister and I were in Athens for only a few days and we wanted to see as much of Greece as we could, so this was perfect - my favorite day in Greece by far. KeyTours did a good job of making time for a lot of sites without it feeling rushed. Epidaurus, Nafplio, and Mycenae were incredible. We loved the ancient sites and the port town was very pleasant. None of the stops were terribly crowded either. We opted for the tour lunch in Nafplio which was both delicious and filling, and we still had time left over to explore the town a bit. Our guide Melina was fantastic. She was very informative, professional, and charming and provided us with an unforgettable tour of the region. Definitely recommend.

After a confusing start with lots of hand waving by drivers and organisers we set off our guide Maria was mercifully not one of those that drones on and on and on just for the sake of it. She brought history to Life and was so interesting. All the sights we saw on this tour were simply amazing,but do require a good degree of fitness as some of the walks can be quite steep.Views were really amazing and worth the hike.
One big groan though is the lunch,I wish there was a CHOICE and not simply have what they have chosen, plonked in front of me. In future we will do our own thing and eat at a restaurant of our own choosing as Nafpoli is STUNNING and our group were a bunch of whingers.
A great tour and loads of great pictures.

Escape the hustle and bustle of Athens and dive into Greece's rich history on this full-day guided tour to Epidaurus and Mycenae. Discover the remains of the ancient city of Mycenae, which served as a major center of Greek civilization; see iconic sites and visit the small village of Epidaurus.

Heading towards the Corinth Canal, you start your day with a scenic drive along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf, before arriving at Mycenae, home to the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. Explore the ruins of this archaeological site; see the Cyclopean Walls, the Treasury of Atreus—a magnificent 14th-century B.C. structure—and wander through the entrance of the Lion’s Gate and the Royal Tombs.

In the afternoon, head towards the seaport town of Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece with its Venetian fortress of Palamidi and the fortified islet of Bourtzi. Then continue to Epidaurus and spend time at the ancient amphitheater, famed for its classic Greek construction and astounding acoustics. Climb to the 55th row of seats and enjoy the panoramic views from atop. Surrounded by lush greenery, this UNESCO-listed monument is a perfect blend of nature and architecture.

A full day but not exhausting, with enough time in Corinth, Mycenae, Nafplio and Epidaurus. We didn't choose the lunch option as there are plenty of other places. Anastasia was the guide and she was excellent: enough information, helpful, fun and efficient. We all really enjoyed it.

We were very disappointed with our tour guide who presented herself unprofessional, disrespectful and rude.
The tour started late due to disorganized, when she came on the bus, she kicked a young guy and took his seat for placing her personal belongings instead of using her guide seat. Throughout the tour, she kept challenging us and made fun on us. Even we told her right at the beginning we came from Montreal, she insisted that we are from somewhere else that we speak a different language, I guess due to our orient face. She rudely told a couple who returned to meet up point 5 minutes late in front of everybody via microphone. It was supposed to be a 11 hours tour and we ended up finished in 9 hours, no wonder why she kept rushing every one. I don’t remember her Greek name, but a copy of her picture, I am very surprised that Key Tours has such unprofessional tour guide.
