“Amazing Site Guard”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Go see the ruins they are worth it. But don't forget to talk to this amazing guard that sells the tickets. Her name is Despina. She is amazing and she will answer all your questions. She knows all the restaurants and the history of the region. Don't be shy to ask her anything. She went above and beyond for us.

“Ancient site, but not much to see”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

There are impressive foundations of an ancient structure, but not much to see except the huge boulders of the
groundwork. We were somehow dissapointed after paying an entrance fee for it.

“The famous walls”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

The walls and the tunnels are hugely impressive, and the spring was interesting, but the ground inside was bewildering. At least, I found it bewildering. That was with a paper guide. Perhaps it'd be better with a real human one.

“A gem”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Mycenae gets all the visitors, but Tiryns is on the World Heritage List too. The walls (as mentioned in the Iliad) are impressive. And we were the only visitors there. Magical!

“Lots and lots and lots of rocks”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

As previous reviewers have said, although this is even older than nearby sites such as Corinth and Epidavros, it is mainly tumbled down rocks and without a guide to help explain the context (which we had) it may not be quite as exciting as those other sites.
