    We are currently on the last day of this tour. We booked this 4 day tour directly with Key Tours in March 2022. At that time (and still currently posted on their website) they specified a maximum of 26 on the tour. We booked their tour because of this low maximum. We started the tour with 20 guests. On the second day we were told that 20 more guests would be joining us on the third day. As it turned out, 19 others joined the tour after lunch to pack the bus giving a total of 39. We no longer felt safe on the bus and reached out to Key Tours to request a refund for the 1.5 days when they exceeded their advertised maximum. Their speedy reply was: “I am sorry for this. The information about max 26 people, is from when the we had this restriction because of Covid-19. This restriction is not valid any more. By mistake this information was note updated in our website.” We believe that Key Tours should have notified us of the increase in group size and given us the option to cancel. Or, they could have advertised that the group number was subject to change due to COVID protocols. They did neither. We paid for a four day tour with a maximum of 26. Key Tours failed to deliver the product we purchased. Beware!!!

    aan te bevelen . erg informatief ,leerzaam en op een goede niet opdringerige manier gebracht . de gids -stavros- was erg vriendelijk . hotels prima allemaal met zwembad ,geloof me dat was zeker erg fijn na een bustocht . opstappunt en afzetplaats bij hotels was ook erg fijn .het zijn ook kleine groepjes dus geen eindeloos rijden door Athene was hiervoor gelukkig niet nodig .

    Awesome 4-day excursion through mainland Greece straight into the local history and mythology with our super knowledgeable and passionate guide Anna and expert driver Zacharias. We think the 4-day tour is the best option because that gives a broader view of the historical and mythological places, events and people - expertly woven together by Anna. Our favourite site was Olympia where we had an opportunity to run at the ancient Stadium and “fight” at the Palaestra. Everything great. Five stars! Big thanks!

    Wow! What an amazing experience we had in Greece with Marianna as our guide. We learned so much with the tours and had time to eat well and enjoy some shopping and down time. There's no way I could have done this trip cheaper on my own and we sediment would have missed out on the historical information.

    Couldn’t recommend more. We got a more complete picture and feel for Greece and experienced so much history. Met wonderful people too! Our guide Anastasia was such a great host who was so knowledgeable and did small touches to make it special for us and Nicolas our driver was a level above.

    Our tour guide was just amazing she made the sites and history come alive! The sites were great, the hotels and service was amazing. Door to door pick up and drop off. Got to meet cool people on the tour. The driver was also great!

    Well planned and executed. Christina, our guide from Keytours was excellent - very knowledgeable and passionate about her job. Her descriptions about the sites and their history were very good. Booking experience was very good.

    There was a lot of travelling with this tour but it was still much better than travelling to each site separately from Athens, and there were plenty of short comfort stops as well as a lunch break each day. Breakfast and dinner were included and we found the quality of the food to range from acceptable to very good. The accommodation, each night was excellent. We opted for the four-star version but, with hindsight, we weren't really at the hotels long enough to make use of the excellent facilities - arriving at each at between 6:00 and 7:30 each evening. However, this was in April so there would likely be more opportunity during the summer months when the sun sets much later. Each of the sites are well worth visiting in their own right. The theatre at Epidaurus is exceptionally well preserved and the accoustics incredible, and the views at Delphi and Meteora are spectacular. Our guide, Christina, was very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about how to archaic and classical artefacts, and how to tell the difference, as well the reasons some sites are better preserved than others and so many other things about the history of each site and of Greece as a whole. Our chosen time of year meant that we had the good fortune to be part of a very small group, who gelled well to enhance the experience. I would recommend this trip without hesitation.
