We booked this private tour last minute and we are very glad that we did with Crispy Local! Totally professional and punctual driver, John really exceeded our expectations. The places were amazing and full of history! Greece is full of fascinating stories and myths. Last but not least, Nafplio town was the highlight of the tour. Quiet, clean and picturesque, its a place that we would come again to stay and explore more! The restaurant that John suggested was great and we tried some of the local wine, that we really enjoyed! We 100% recommend this tour with Crispy Local!

2: We wanted to show a taste of the countryside for our guest friends. This trip was awesome. We saw many great archaeological places and heard a lot of mythology from our driver. He suggested a traditional tavern with authentic Greek dishes that our guests loved! The whole experience was great and we will book again with Crispy Local!

If you visit Greece - do not pass up the chance to take this tour. It is that simple. Reach out to Ioannis and book it.

Before I get into the details of the trip - I need to call out Ioannis and his team. They were a key reason why our family trip to Greece was such a great, once in a lifetime event. I arranged the trip for my extended family - a group of 12 ultimately who arrived during the course of our first week in Athens. For anyone who has done similar - the coordination for a party of 12 is not simple or straightforward. You cannot just call a cab or Uber, getting everyone to dinner or to an activity requires special planning and coordination. I initially contacted Ioannis for this tour but as I continued my planning and even once we were in Athens, I'd reach out to him for airport pickup/dropoff, transportation in the city, even a scuba diving trip - he arranged it all, sometimes on less than 24 hours notice.

This particular tour was great precisely because of the care and planning Ioannis and his team put into it. Full Stop.

On to the details -

If you appreciate Greek history, if you have read the Iliad or the Odyssey or are familiar with the mythology of Hercules - visiting Mycenae will give you a new, deeper understanding of Greek history and mythology. From the Mycenaen citadel you can see Argos (another key ancient city-state) as well as Nemea, where Hercules had his first labor(slaying the Nemean lion - whose fleece he wears in most ancient statuary to identify him as Hercules). In fact from the citadel you can see the locations of Hercules first four labors. The archaeological site, the beehive tombs and the Lions' Gate are spectacular and a trip to Greece without visiting them would be incomplete.

After Mycenae we went to the Amphitheater of Epidaurus - which is also not to be missed, particularly if you are an engineer (as I am). It is extremely well preserved and in use today. The acoustics are not just an ancient marvel but a modern marvel as well. Someone in the center of the stage speaking in a normal voice can be heard in the back row without difficulty. My daughter is training for the theater and we have a short video of her singing 'Colors of the Wind' (from Pocahontas) on the stage - it is a treasure and one of the highlights of our trip and includes the crowd applauding her performance.

Finally, we stopped in Nafplio where we had lunch beside the docks. If you want to tour a traditional Greek city and enjoy their wonderful local cuisine - Nafplio is the place for you. (History note: Nafplio was briefly the capital of Greece immediately after the Greeks drove out the Turks).

For the trip we had an extremely comfortable Mercedes van and Demetrius was our driver. Demetrius is now officially part of our family. I do a lot of travel and he was one of the most professional drivers I have ever had anywhere. It was hotter than the surface of the sun when we arrived at Nafplio but he was looking cool in his suit and tie - no joking. When we arrived Nafplio he helped find a restaurant that all ten of us agreed to (I gave up - he managed to get Team Friedl to consensus on dining location). We discussed family and shared pictures of kids as my wife and daughters were shopping.

We had a spectacular time in Greece and Ioannis and Demetrius are firmly part of 'Team Friedl'. We will return to Greece, we easily could have spent 2 weeks in Athens, and when we do - I will start planning with Ioannis well in advance. If you are planning a trip to Athens, you cannot go wrong doing the same.

Private Tour with Crispy Local

Ioannis (John) and his team are amazing. Personalized and very flexible. My family highly recommends Crispy Local! The trip to Mycenae to see the Mycenaean ruins was well worth the short drive and the stop at Nafplio with lunch at a local seafood restaurant was the trip of a lifetime.

Thank you John!

This trip is one of the most favourite trips in Greece. My guide for this tour was Mr. Ioannis, a thorough gentleman. He knows the stories of each site right back of his hands. He has a wide knowledge on the Greek mythology and history along with current affairs. This trip is a long trip duration-wise as there are multiple stops. I was left to explore and see the sites at my own pace due to which I ended spending more time than it usually takes.

We stopped for lunch at a curated cafe in Nafplio which serves fantastic local food. The tour ended with a nice stroll in the beautiful bylanes of Nafplio. Though this is one of the longest day tours from Athens, never once you will feel bored as Ioannis keeps you engaged in interesting facts and stories about Greece.

This is a must do tour if you are ever visiting Greece and Crispylocal is the best tour provider you can find as they will customise as per your need.

John was super communicative and took care of everything! This was a great day full of beautiful sites, interesting stories, and good food. John has built his company on the principles of great customer service and it showed. We enjoyed getting to know him on the drive and really learned a lot about Greece on the way to each site. We couldn’t have spent the day in a better fashion! High point of the trip! Highly recommend! Next time, private island tour!

Thanks,
Jason Ter Horst and family
