  • 3-Day Ancient Greek Archaeological Sites Tour from Athens

    1. 3-Day Ancient Greek Archaeological Sites Tour from Athens

    This exciting 3-day tour takes you to the most important archaeological sites of classical Greece. Providing a superb introduction to some of the myths of the ancient world, you will visit the tomb of Agamemnon in Mycenae, the Temple of Apollo and Oracle at Delphi, and the altar of the Olympic flame at Olympia. You will also make short stops in the cities of Tripolis and Megalopolis, drive past the mighty Corinth Canal, and see the charming harbor town of Nafpaktos. Day 1: Epidaurus – Nayplia - Mycenae Following your departure from Athens, visit the Corinth Canal on the Saronic Gulf and admire the miraculous 19th-century feat of engineering. Continue to Epidaurus to tour the ancient theater, world famous for its outstanding acoustics. Proceed to Nafplia, former capital of the First Hellenic Republic, and drive through the plain of Argos. Upon arrival in Mycenae, visit ...

    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.

  • Ancient Delphi Full-Day Tour from Athens

    2. Ancient Delphi Full-Day Tour from Athens

    Depart from Athens early in the morning via the National Highway on this full-day sightseeing tour to the sacred ruins of Delphi. You will pass through the towns of Thebes, Levadia and Arachova as you drive to the site of the Delphic oracle and explore the famous site, known in ancient times as the “Navel of the World.” The 8-hour sightseeing tour will take you past Castalia Spring, continuing on to visit the archaeological site of the Temple of Apollo and the Museum of Delphi. Explore the spectacular attractions from classical Greece, including the bronze Charioteer, the Naxian Sphinx, and the Statue of Antinoos. After lunch, return to Athens via the picturesque mountain village of Arachova, built on the southern slopes of Mount Parnassus. Well known for its attractive hand-woven carpets, rugs and quilts, as well as for its wine and cheese, you will make a short stop, with time to buy...

    Overall, I'm very happy we took this trip. However, because of traffic, it took 2-3 hours longer than we anticipated. The food was so-so, and while it claimed we could have .5 L of wine included, we had to pay for it when we arrived. Glad we went but just manage your expectations.

Optimal way to visit Greek archeological sites

Definitely take this tour if you are interested in a good overview of the archeological sites.

We were with a small group of people, which made it even more intense. The driver - Elvis - and our guide - Oxana - were exactly on time and were very kind. Oxana knows a lot about Greece and the Greek history and mythology, it's amazing! She tried to include everyone in the talks (not everyone's English was sufficient) and didn't save herself any trouble to help us whenever she could. Delphi itself was amazing, a must-visit. We were lucky that the 1st Sunday of the month, entrance was free. After Delphi we passed Arachova, a lovely village with a great atmoshpere. The lunch after these visits - vegan options are possible, but gluten free (not in this case) would be a challenge we were told - was really good as well, but they served so much food we could hardly finish it all! Overall a great day and an amazing experience :-)

A place you must visit when in Greece

It was almost an individual tour (we were only three tourists). Our driver together with our guide made us not only learn many facts but feel the spirit of the place. We wish we could stay there longer. As for the dinner it was very Greek and very tasty.

The admission prices for the state cultural sites are actually reduced by 50% for EU citizens aged 65 and over, e.g. only 6 euros instead of 12 euros.

Very interesting

We had a great time on this trip. The guide was great!
