Activity Info

Explore with your professional and passionate guide the remains of the ancient city of Mycenae, a major centre of Greek civilization from 1600BC to 1100BC and the archaeological treasure of Epidaurus. Follow in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks on this fascinating and carbon-neutral full day excursion.

Depart from our terminal via the coastal National highway for the strategically important Corinth canal (short stop). After the Corinth Canal, you enter the region of Argolis, land of Homer’s Golden Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Dating back to the second century B.C., Mycenae was one of the major centers of Greek civilization and a military stronghold which dominated much of southern Greece. Avoid and skip the lines of the archaeological site, home to the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. You will see the Cyclopean Walls, the Lion’s Gate, the Royal Tombs, including Agamemnon Clytemnestra's, and the Treasury of Atreus, a magnificent 14th-century B.C. structure. 

Afterward, stop in the beautiful sea port of Nauplia the first capital of modern Greece with its Venetian fortress of  PALAMIDI and the fortified islet of BOURTZI (short stop). After a walking tour of the city, you will have lunch in a restaurant beside the sea with amazing views of Bourtzi islet in the middle of the Port. Those who have selected the option without lunch, will have the time to explore further the city or relax having a nice coffee.


 Continue on to Epidaurus and visit the ancient theatre. The UNESCO’S world heritage listed monument is reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asklepios, the healer and was the most celebrated healing center of the classical world. Epidaurus is probably most famous for its theatre, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings and still used today due to its amazing acoustics. Your day trip ends back to Athens late in the afternoon.

Kimon was our guide for this great day tour. Not only was the tour filled with variety and multiple stops but Kimon shared his wide knowledge with us throughout in a very gentle and informative way. He looked after us throughout the day providing us with options at each stop. Highly recommended tour and tour guide.

Excel te excursión, tuve de guía a Giorgios, quien tiene mucho conocimiento y te cuenta la historia de los lugares visitados de forma didáctica. Nikos fue el chofer, muy atento y siempre disponible a facilitar el acceso al bus. Con respecto a los sitios visitados, superó mis expectativas. Lo recomiendo 100%.

The trip to Mycenae and Epidaurus were well worth it. Christine, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and made the history come alive. There is very little time in Nafplio. I would skip the lunch option as the food choices were very marginal. There are plenty of places for lunch on your own and then you may have a little more time to walk around Nafplio.

This was a great way to do a day trip from Athens The tour was organized and efficient Our guide Katarina was knowledgeable, informative and fun to be with We visited Epidaurus and saw the wonderful stadium Then we had lunch in Nafplio (I would recommend not doing the prepaid lunch, although it was good, we had no options) Nafplio is an enchanting seaside city The Mycenae ruins were incredible Definitely would recommend this tour

I spent a week in Athens and booked 3 tours with Key Tours (Athens & Cape Sunion), Delphi, Epidaurus & Mycenae. I just have one word to say, they were AMAZING! The organization, pick-up, tour guides (we had the pleasure to meet Dimitris, Marianna and Konstantinos which were just truly fantastic, very knowledgably and professional), even the drivers were great. The tours included everything that a tourist might need, and the lunch was amazing. I truly recommend Key Tours to all, and I truly will be back for more of their tour packages!

We had a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide in Katrina and a courteous driver in Lucas. Pickup was punctual and the entire days activities went smoothly. There was sufficient time allotted at each destination to explore and take pictures.
