    • Hello, do you offer this trip on Nov 2 or 3? We are staying in Porto Heli and have a car. Is it possible to add Epidaurus? We are 2 adults and 2 children (age 9, 12)
      Thank you

      • Daer Stephanie,
        Thank you for your interest in our “Mycenae and Nafpplion Tour”. The specific tour is private so it can run every day, as long as the guide is available. Our guide can definitely meet you in the archaological site of Epidaurus, before tou head to Mycenae and finally visit Nafplion. All three places are amazing! Maria Giannouli is checking availability and will come back to you via email.
        All the best,

    • Our day trip to Mycenae and Napflio is a memory that will stay with us for a long time. Our guide, Kali, was absolutely wonderful – she’s such a lovely, warm person and so knowledgeable. Our 9 year old has read a lot about Greek mythology, and Kali was a fantastic teacher and guide, but also a fantastic listener when he wanted to share his knowledge. Mycenae has a fascinating history, and we had a delicious lunch in Napflio, which is such a charming town. The transportation arranged by Maria to pick us up from our hotel was comfortable and our driver was great. Thank you all for giving us such a wonderful experience!
