A day on the Peloponnese
Nancy was very knowledgeable. We were a small group because of COVID. Very complete tour of the Peloponnese (of the main structures that survived to these day) and the schedule was on time. I liked it.

Fantastic tour!!!
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Fantastic!!!!! Very informative guide! Tour included a stop in Nafplio which was amazing! My husband and I opted not to book the tour with lunch, and we enjoyed walking around, grabbing lunch from one little cafe and we found a little park where we sat and enjoyed the last part of our visit. ❤️❤️❤️ Really enjoyed it!

Wonderful
Feb. 2020
The trip was very informative and well organized, and was a great way to see these amazing sites. We stopped at the Corinth Canal first and then on to Mycenae and Epidaurus. We enjoyed the coffee shop along the way for a snack (baklava here was the best we had all week!) and bathroom break, but the lunch stop was just ok. We tend to go for a walk and find our own lighter lunch when possible, but this stop was at a hotel, and there was no other option. We did three different Chat tours during our trip to Greece, and here is one of the minor negatives—we were picked up at a hotel in Syntagma Square near the hotel where we were staying, but then spent 30-60 more minutes picking up other tourists, only to end right back where we started in Syntagma Square. I’m sure it is complicated to schedule everything, but it was frustrating to spend so much time picking up only to end back where we started before getting on the road. On the drop off in the evening, though, everyone staying in Syntagma Square got off in one spot in the square—wish the morning could be that way to spend less time on the bus. It was worth it, though, as the trip was very interesting. My family really enjoyed the entire day, and would recommend it.

Jan. 2020 • Solo
It was an excellent tour, wonderful quiet sights, a knowledgable engaging guide, a pleasant bus and some very nice travelling companions.
The one big but in this is the awful lunch in a plasticy vile hotel, nowhere near anything beautiful.
It was also the only bad meal that I have ever had in Greece. Chatours should be ashamed of themselves as it just marred an otherwise wonderful day.

Take the tour and not the lunch

I am a guide and often stop for lunches in Greece and usually they are wonderful but this was truly tourism at its worst.

FANTASTIC DAY TRIP!
Jan. 2020
This was my favorite tour. I think a huge part was the guide. Joy was AMAZING. She was fun and very knowledgeable. She cared for all the guests and made sure everyone was comfortable and good. I chose to pay for my lunch which worked out just fine. The others got a course meal that seemed very bland whereas I got to pick a greek plate.

Very interesting site but couldn't fully understand the guide
Like the tour which covered interesting sites and locations, however our guide spoke English in a very strong accent which was very hard to understand fully.

Lots of fun
Mycenae is more for those who are interested in archeology. However, the theatre at Epidaurus will be impressive for all. The sound effect is amazing!

Excellent trip & great value!
Dec. 2019 • Couples
An unbelievable day seeing parts of beautiful Greece. Vicki was one of the most knowledgeable guides we have met and she shared so much of the complex history and beautiful culture of her country. Quite a few hours travelling on the bus but very comfortable and scenic. Vicki kept us entertained with stories and history, but knew when to be quiet and let everyone rest. Not loads of steps at the stops on this tour (like so many places in Greece!) but some steep inclines to conquer but good rests available in between. I have hip and knee problems but could manage the terrains on this tour with minimal fuss. The Corinth Canal was a must see! Highly recommend this tour and company.

Stunning sampler of the Peloponese (forgive spelling)
Nov. 2019
A very complex and complete sampling of history and mythology attached to this very important part of Greece. Everything about it was outstanding and we urge all who have an interest in this part of Greece to take it.
