About
We visit Historical Battle fields as travelers, not as tourists. We get as excited as you to travel, to enjoy the history & scenery. If you want to see most of Herodotus History Greek Persian Wars, then combine all battle fields in a full day tour. The tour starts with convenient pickup and takes you to Marathon fields, Tomb, & museum. Continue via Marathon lake to Thermopylae. Visit battle fields, Leonidas Memorial, Kolonos hill, Hot springs & Museum. Next to Thebes, visit a Unique Museum. Nearby visit Plataea Acropolis, Battle fields & Kargathia Spring. Drive via Mount Kithaeron, pass by Elefsina port to Perama. See the narrow sea passage between mainland and Salamis island. This is a tour strictly to see the battlefields, museums and the scenery (drive via mountains), there are few ancient ruins to see. You have the options of a full payment at the time of your booking or reserve your tour with a deposit only 50% at a lower rate (than Option/ Full Pay). See additional info.

This tour was a fairly good introduction to the Battle of Salamis. Clearly, we saw more through the tour than we could have managed on our own. Still, one should prepare background research ahead of time. Nikos and his wife Angela were very pleasant people to spend a day with, and both were very helpful in assisting my bad knee problems. Unfortunately, the Hellenic Maritime Museum was closed (looked to be so for some time), but Nikos researched and found a temporary exhibit on Triremes at the Planetarium which was very interesting and complemented the day's theme. The stop at the Faliro Maritime Park to see the reconstructed trireme Olympias also included a visit to the H.S. Averof which saw duty during the Balkan Wars and WWI. While each location was pertinent, the overall experience felt fragmented. Given distances between stops, this should be expected, but a stop at some elevated position on the mainland would have given us an overview to the strategies and progress of the battle. The site of the most impressive Salamis Battle Monument and tomb on Salamis Island did not allow much of an overview up the strait because the area is so built up as a working port. Maybe we could have played at being Xerxes as he watched the battle unfold. Still -- we got to some places and saw things we could not have managed independently. Therefore, for us, it was a good excursion. As an important add-on -- communication was prompt and very clear, timing was perfect, fairly priced, and extremely comfortable car. Well run organization.
