A Recent Review of this tour

RECOMMEND. my husband's and my tour with Manny was incredible from beginning to end. His knowledge on Greek history as well as other cultures is extensive. Our tour involved quite a bit of driving and Manny had non-stop interesting facts to share on the way out and on return to Athens. Manny made sure every expectation was exceeded on our 1 day in Athens which included tours of the Ancient city of Corinth, Mycenae, Nafplion (ask him for recommendation on the best ice cream/gelato!) Absolutely recommend
