Excellent tours Anna did a great job and was friendly and knowledgeable. Dimitris was a great, helpful driver too. My other tours (Athens 1 day) were also very good. A great experience with Keytours

I'm an American tourist who organized directly with Key Tours for the three-day tour, a day tour of Athens, and a one-day island cruise. All of them were great and highly recommended. Key Tours organized things well and we traveled on comfortable buses. Our main guide, Anna, was great. She knew and shared a lot of interesting facts and made sure we got everywhere we were supposed to go. Our driver Dimitrius (sorry, not sure of spelling) did a great job too, as did my one-day guide Anastasia and driver George. The sights of Greece were remarkable and I feel like touring with this group made them even better. A+

I took my 15 year old son on this tour to learn more about the ancient Greek civilisation, and the tour did not disappoint. The locations visited were fascinating and the coach was comfortable and the on-board wi-fi was very useful. Our guide Anna was very knowledgeable and gave the tour bilingually in Italian and English (which slowed us down at times, but to be expected). The hotels were good quality (one at Delphi especially nice), and it was lovely to meet and get to know our co-travellers. The first day is a bit rushed as it shares with the single day tour, and we had some unnecessary hanging around as some others on the tour were late getting back on the bus (could text alerts be used here?) but it was a smashing three days. Thank you Keytours.

I read previous reviews that seem to focus on food and accommodation. I am going to agree on these two factors not being the best part of the tour, but I am also going to point out that this tour is about culture. There are also tours about food and I would expect these to offer better restaurants and things like that. Also, we chose the Tourist option and the hotels were still four stars hotels. It's not Keytours fault if they do not offer what you would expect. Still, decent dinners and rooms, just to be clear. But again, this tour is about culture, like I said. We had a fantastic time with Katia, our guide, and Theodoros, our driver. Both extremely nice people and always ready to help. Katia is a profound connoisseur of the Ancient Greece and her love for her own culture is so transparent that you either love it yourself or you better leave the tour because you are not lucky enough to see the beauty when it shows right in front of your eyes. I can't choose one thing in particular. Maybe Olympia considering both site and museum, but the magic of the acoustic in the Epidaurus theatre, the Treasury of Atreus (even with the sudden rain), the beautiful location, ruins and museum of Delphi... it's all spectacular. Last but not least, we shared the tour with very nice people as well, and that really makes a difference. p.s. we took so many pictures I would go crazy if I had to choose some for this review. Sorry. Thank you

Die Tour startete pünktlich, wir wurden wie vereinbart in unserem Hotel in Athen abgeholt. Der Bus fuhr dann noch mehrere Hotels an, um Gäste einzusammeln. Dann ging es los nach Epidaurus, ein Fotostop in Nauplion und Mycene. Die Zeiten in den Ausgrabungen sind knapp bemessen, reichen aber aus für eine Besichtigung. Nach Mykene wurden wir in ein Dorf mit nur einem Restaurant gefahren, wo wir auf eigene Kosten Mittagessen konnten. Das Restaurant war gut. Dann hielt der Bus an einem Souvenir Töpferladen, über eine halbe Stunde lang - die Zeit hätte man besser noch in den Sehenswürdigkeiten verbracht. Dann ging es weiter nach Olympia zum Übernachten. Unser Hotel war das Antonios. Das ist eine bessere Jugendherberge. Mehrere Schulklassen waren dort untergebracht, bis in die späten Nachtstunden waren die Schüler wach und laut. Wir waren zu dritt in einem Zimmer mit Zustellbett untergebracht. Das Zustellbett war eine Art Gartenliegengestell. Darauf lagen zwei (!!!) sehr dünne Campingmatrazen. Trotzdem war das Gestell deutlich zu spüren. Wir haben das Gartenliegengestell in die Ecke geräumt und ein Matrazenlager auf dem Fußboden gemacht. Als wir dann noch die anderen Betten aufschlugen, waren auf dem einen Bett schwarze Haare. Offenkundig hatte vor uns schon jemand in diesem Bett geschlafen und das Bettzeug war nicht gewechselt worden. Wir benachrichtigten die Rezeption und die Betten wurden frisch überzogen. Als das Personal unser Matrazenlager auf dem Fußboden sah, wurde der Manager geholt. Es gab eine Diskussion über die Qualität der Gartenliege und der Campingmatrazen. Schlußendlich - es war inzwischen nach 10 Uhr abends - wurde ein neues Bett mit eine richtigen Matraze ins Zimmer gebracht. Uns wurde sogar noch eine Flasche Wein gebracht. Man fragt sich, warum das Zimmer nicht gleich für drei Personen gerichtet war. Am zweiten Tag besichtigten wir Olympia sehr ausführlich. Dann fuhr der Bus weiter nach Delphi. Unterwegs hielt der Bus wieder an einem Restaurant, das sehr schön am Meer lag. Damit endete das Schöne aber auch. Wir bestellten Fisch für 14 Euro, was für Griechenland recht teuer ist. Die Bedienung kam mit einem großen Metalltablett, wie es in der Mensa gebraucht wird, und wollte ein kleines Stück Fisch von dem Tablett auf den Teller heben, dazu vier kleine Stücke Kartoffel. Das wars. Das Restaurant lebt davon, dass Bustouren dort halten und die Gäste keine Wahl haben als dort zu essen. Das Hotel in Delphi war dann sehr gut, das Essen auch, und die Besichtigung von Delphi am dritten Tag war sehr gut. Zum Essen hielt der Bus wieder an einem Restaurant, das einsam lag. Dann fuhr unsere Tour weiter Richtung Meteora Klöster. Wir drei und 5 weitere Gäste wurden im Restaurant zurückgelassen. Es hieß, wir fahren mit der Tagestour, die von Athen nach Delphi stattfand, nach Athen zurück. Diese Tagestour kam aber erst an, als unser erster Bus abfuhr. Wir mussten in diesem einsamen Restaurant noch über eine Stunde warten, bis die Tagestour-Gäste alle gegessen hatten und wir endlich zurück nach Athen fuhren. Dieses Warten war reine Zeitvergeudung und es war uns auch vorher nicht mitgeteilt worden. Auf der Rückfahrt hielten wir eine halbe Stunde in einem Bergdorf, das wir mit der ersten Tour bereits am zweiten Tag besichtigt hatten. Da fragt man sich auch, ob man dann nicht hätte ein anderes Dorf besichtigen können. Die neue Reiseleiterin schlief auf der Rückfahrt nach Athen in ihrem Sitz. Erklärungen gab es keine. Die zweite Hälfte des dritten Tages war reine Rückfahrt nach Athen und keine geführte Rundreise mehr. Das war ein enttäuschender Abschluss der dreitägigen Tour. Positiv zu vermerken ist die Reiseleiterin Mariana, die ein profundes Wissen über die griechische Antike hat und interessant darüber berichtet.

wow what a great tour! as a classical studies student i was very excited to see all of this sites and this tour did not disappoint. i think that the final night in delphi with the view at sunset was one of the highlights of my whole trip around europe. the first day was a little rushed due to being mixed with a day tour - it would have been nice to spend some extra time at epidaurus and mycenae but the other days were paced nicely and allowed lots of time to see the sites. our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of all the areas we travelled through.
