Most frequent questions and answers
In Greece like most of the European countries only professional licensed tour guides have the right by law to accompany visitors into the sites. Your English speaking driver will explain about the ancient monuments that you are about to visit, the ancient history of Greece & interesting facts about historical & modern-day Greece but is not allowed by law to accompany you into the sites. H.P.Tours cooperates with professional licensed tour guides all over Greece who have the right by law to accompany visitors into the sites. If you wish to have a professional licensed tour guide, we will help you arrange a professional licensed tour guide to be with you, at an extra cost.
Our suggestion if possible is to start your tour either at 07:30 am or at 08:00 am. You will have the added benefit of visiting archaeological sites at different times from the large tour buses & groups of visitors, thus enabling you to experience the wonderful monuments & learn their history at a time of the day when they are not overcrowded.
