I went on this tour in 2018... I came across the Key Tours business card and it definitely brought back some distinct beautiful memories on this tour. My tour guide was the amazing Marianna Tsigaridou. She was absolutely incredible. I was fully engaged throughout the whole tour with her deep knowledge explaining Greek mythology and history. I was traveling alone and Marianna kept a special eye on me to make sure I was safe. Her warm and polite nature alongside her expertise made the best tour I've been on. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

Brilliant tour with Marianna Tsigaridou

I would highly recommend this tour. The organisation was excellent and our guide Marainna Tsigaridou made this tour extra special with her wonderful commentary, knowledge of ancient Greek history and culture and language. We learned so much, it was so interesting. The choice of famous sites to visit was excellent such as Delphi Myceane and Olympia. It was unforgettable and with some great scenery for photo shoots. I was really impressed with Marianna's English and French language skills and what was fascinating was how she explained the influence of Greek language and philosophy on our modern European languages. It was great, like watching the best historucal documentary film on Greece. I'm so glad we went, there is no way we would have ever had such a great experience trying to do this alone without a guide, she brings to life what may just look like a pile of old stones, shows pictures of how it was before, how people lived, myths, legends and real personal stories. Absolutely wonderful!

Great way to see Greece

Travelling to Greece for the first time, struggled to figure out the best way to see some of the key sights. Found this tour and was thoroughly impressed by it. Our tour was in English and Italian and the guide was amazing. He went through all the sights in so much detail for us and was a true fountain of knowledge, able to answer everyone's questions. We were also given ample time to explore each site before loading the bus and travelling to the next stop. Having the entry to the sites included in the price really helped, as it was on less thing to worry about. The tour group wasn't overly large, which was nice, as you were able to ask questions and actually hear the guide. It is suitable for all ages, and would work quite well if travelling alone.

Dinner and breakfast was included and were often provided by the hotels we stayed at. They were lovely and was traditional Greek food. Lunch was not included with the trip but was the most disappointing meal, as we were taken to specific places and were not given the option of where to eat and the food in these places was not the nicest.

The only downside was when travelling back to Athens from Delphi, our original tour continued on and we joined with a day tour heading back to Athens. 

Overall an amazing and informative trip that would be highly recommended for those wanting a quick trip around Greece to see key sights and the beautiful countryside along the way.
