Excellent itinerary. Tour guide (Katarina) was one of the best guides I have ever had on a tour. She brought the sites and museums to life. She spoke excellent English. Also, she worked hard to provide us plenty of free time, after going through the stories and explanations at each stop. The only negative was the lack of information provided by Key Tours after the reservation was made and paid, and the pick-up process.
Basically, I liked the tour. Both the guide Kristina and the driver George were superb. However, there was a fly in the ointment. I mean the dinner provided by Nafsika Palace hotel in Itea on the second day of the tour that was less than satisfactory. It was a set menu with no choice while the quality of food and service was really very low, both in absolute terms and compared to dinners at the first and third days when different hotels were offered for First Class and Touristic Class (in Itea, only one hotel was provided to everybody). I've asked Key Tours to refund me for this dinner as it really spoiled the impression from the tour but in vain. i think that they easily can offer something better, particularly for those like me who paid for the First Class hotel for this tour, as their profit margin is quite generous. My wife and me paid EUR 1076 for the whole tour (First Class with 10 per cent discount), while the cost of three nights with breakfasts and dinners at hotels where we stayed is EUR 300 maximum in total if we look at Expedia quotes. We should add there EUR 120 maximum of entry tickets to sights for two us, so EUR 650 is the company's gross revenue. I guess they even will be able not pay something extra but just ask Nafsika Palace hotel to improve the quality of dinners.
We were a family of 8 and our tour bus had only 15 people which was great. We had a wonderful time on this 4 day tour. Our driver George was very friendly and our tour guide Marianna was fabulous! She was very knowledgeable, provided us with lots of information and she was very friendly. It was a very organized tour and the hotels we stayed in are very nice and food was very good. Thank you for a wonderful time. I would strongly recommend this tour.
My wife and I and 10 year old son recently completed the 4-day Classical Greece tour which included: Epidaurus, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora. We chose this specific tour so we could see all the major ruins sites throughout mainland Greece. My son has recently read the Percy Jackson novels and is really into Greek Mythology. As I researched different tours and companies I came across this one and it seemed perfect. I ready the reviews and over and over I read about one of the Tour Guides Marianna Tsigaridou. I couldn't have been more pleased when we first arrived not knowing who our guide would be or what kind of bus we'd have. I was so thankful and blessed to find out the first half of our tour was in a very comfortable small Mercedes bus and Marianna was our guide. The second half of the tour we merged with a larger group on a larger bus but Marianna was still our guide. She is such an amazing woman who was a constant source of information for us. As we traveled from region to region she told us everything I could ever expect to know about the history and current status. At each ruins site we visited she had an incredible grasp of knowledge and had several books with her which she used to show very informative pictures. She took a special interest in my son once she found out his interest in Greek Mythology and enjoyed quizzing him. I've been on many guided tours but I've NEVER been more happy with a guide as I was with Marianna. Her knowledge, passion for everything Greece was the highlight of our 9 days in Greece. I recommend KeyTours as a company (I had several emails back and forth and the people emailing me were extremely efficient and knowledgeable), this tour (captured everything we wanted), both our bus drivers were fantastic, and with any luck you'll have Marianna as well. THANK YOU so much Marianna for making our vacation!
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.
Great experience. The 4 day itinerary was action packed with some of the greatest Greece history explained in detail. The tour guide, Marianna Tsigaridou was the best with all the knowledge of a great history professor and the experience and finesse of a great tour guide.
Our guide Anna was excellent. She was knowledgeable and well organised. Both Anna and our bus driver Costas, were warm and friendly and made us feel at home on our tour
Our guide and driver very pleasant and corteous. Really enjoyed the tour with lots of helpful information
Marianna Tsigaridou provided us with an amazing four days of the history of Greece, the culture, the language and famous locations and antiquities. Her wealth of knowledge gave us an insight into the life and times before and after Christ. As a family with Greek background the trip made us proud to have Greek heritage. Great hotels, great service and great bus driver - Apostolo. Thank you for the wonderful memories and experiences. Family of Four
