This was a delightful tour particularly because of the tour guide Christina. She was so knowledgeable and friendly. She brought history alive for us. Because of her great personality, everyone on the tour seemed to have a wonderful time. The driver, Kostas, was excellent too. I really enjoyed seeing historical sights which in the past I had only read about. Well worth it. Most of the hotels were fine. We did not pay for a hotel upgrade. The only negative about the tour, was NOT the fault of Key Tours. I was disgusted by the state of the restrooms at Meteora. The toilets had all overflowed in the ladies room and urine etc. was all over the floor.

Giro della Grecia Classica comprendente Canale di Corinto, teatro di Epidauro, Micene, Olympia, Ponte Rion-Antirion, Lepanto, Delphi, Meteore. Autobus molto confortevole, buoni gli Alberghi dove abbiamo soggiornato ma soprattutto una guida fantastica, molto professionale, in lingua inglese-italiano. La Sig. ra Marianna ha una bellissima voce, che ti tiene compagnia lungo il viaggio di 4 gg. La sua organizzazione e gestione del gruppo è stata perfetta e denota un' ottima preparazione ed esperienza. Per quanto riguarda i luoghi visitati è superfluo dire che si visitano siti emozionanti carichi di suggestioni che vengono dalla storia della Grecia antica.

Part of a larger 8 day package, we had the extreme delight of a well-organised tour of ancient and Byzantine Greece. Our guide, Yiouli, must be a descendant of Hermes: her infectious knowledge and love of ancient and modern Greece was expertly and clearly shared with our group. Our driver (George) handled the large bus as if it were a Fiat 500. Everything kept to schedule, and the sights did not disappoint. Were I to be critical of anything, it would be the food at some of the locations - we had better food and value for food money in Athens, though I feel this is more a function of what is available near tourist-heavy locations in rural Greece, more than a failing of Key Tours.

Tour guide was knowledgeable and answered questions readily. Driver was helpful with luggage. Restroom stops every couple of hours (no toilet on the bus). Reason for 4 stars: our room in the Meteora hotel lacked a curtain. No being exhibitionists, this was a major negative. Another person on the tour staying at the same hotel also had complaints about their room.

I really enjoyed the 4-Day Classical Greece Tour led by your brilliant tour guide Mariana Tsigaridou, her knowledge of the history of Ancient and Medieval Greece is second to none and it led me to fully appreciate the places in the tour, her ability to relate Greek Mythology, History, Philosophy and Religion has helped me to gain a deeper appreciate of these four important aspects of the Grecian Way of Life. I would definitely recommend this tour to all my friends and in particular this brilliant Mariana Tsigaridou, who through her explanations about the Iconography of the Meteora Monasteries led me to question my own observations and eventually to an answer. So I very highly commend her efforts in carrying out her job as a guide but more as teacher on my journey into the past brilliantly to my satisfaction. ευχαριστώ, Mariana

Marianna Tsigaridou, our tour guide is one of the best I have ever encountered. She was like a college professor and explained the Greek mythology and history in every place we visited. I felt I had to read Homer's Iliad and Odyssey in order to appreciate the stories associated with Peloponnese, Delphi and Meteroa. I have recommended Key Tours to my family and friends and hope they will sign up with them for future visits to Athens. Many thanks to Key Tours as well as Marianna and our excellent driver during the four day tour.
