Overall it was an excellent trip. Very organised. Knowledgeable guide. Coach looked brand new and very clean. My only complaint is that when we got to Corinth we had to sit on the bus while the guide kept repeating the same story. She then took forever to hand out the listening devices. This was valuable time that was wasted.

My friend and I had an amazing time during this tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable, providing interesting and valuable information and our driver was kind and helpful! Very well organized tour! Thank you PRIVATE Tours Greece!

Start of the tour was a little slow due to people not being where they should be & Athens traffic. Both out of the control of Get Your Guide. Although the tour time wasn’t extended because of this.

The guide was nimble and made some good jokes, the history of the city of Corinth is marvelous and the ruins (especially those of Apollo's temple) are breathtaking.

Amazing experience. Although very hot, guide tried to keep things interesting and made it worth our while.
