The tour was good but not much to see, just areas where battles took place. Guide was good but would recommend the group tour vice private tour.

Marathon and Thermopylae Tour

What a wonderful day! Our driver Mike was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and professional. As a Michigan State University Spartan I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Thermopylae and experiencing the actual ground the Spartans died defending. Mike suggested s wonderful seaside restaurant for lunch which capped off a perfect day.

We are truly pleased with your awesome review! Mike is one of our best drivers, who loves driving and sharing his deep knowledge with you of Greek history and mythology. Marathon & Thermopylae is a historical, education and family tour which you can learn so many things about Ancient Greece and Persian Wars. You inform about the ethics of Ancient Greek people. We hope to see you again! Kind regards, Eleftheria Nikoloudaki

We wanted to see Thermopylae because our teenage grandson watched 300 Spartans and is interested in military battles. It was a long ride from Athens and not much there except the site and a short film. However, we were not expecting much from Marathon and surprisingly we really enjoyed this part of the tour. The museum is special and the grounds reveal burial mounds and great architectural digs. Friendly and informative docent. Our driver was excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We try to give you all our historical and mythical knowledge of the monument before the arrival. This is more comfortable as visiting the sights and you have already the knowledge. Finally, you are prepared for what you are going to see. We are looking forward to welcoming you again in the future. Best regards, Nikoloudaki Eleftheria

Beyond Amazing

So this was my first trip to the beautiful country of Greece and it was fantastic. Beautiful Countryside views and historical landmarks. The tour provided by Olive Sea Travels was amazing. Our tour guide, Dem, was very knowledgeable and courteous. Having seen the Marathon and Thermopylae sights, where the heroic Spartans made their last stand, where the Athenians defeated the Persians at Marathon Bay, and just being in that area was amazing. I highly recommend this tour to everyone because it is a very beautiful experience, but it would be a much more fantastic experience if you brush up on the history as well. 5 STARS

Great tour! Especially Thermopylae...

Great tour! Especially Thermopylae even though the landscape has significantly changed in 2500 years. After reviewing some history and using some imagination, this is a worthwhile addition. The visitor center offers a helpful 3D movie to help underatand the high points of the site/battle. Kids can enjoy it too. Marathon was also interesting, but even less to see. Best to combine these on part of a multiday tour to cut down on commute time from Athens
