Great way to get out of town into historical sites without a car
The royal tomb museum in Vergina is a must-visit if you are interested in history or archaeology. I did not expect to have such an amazing experience. It is a one of a kind and a best kept secret at this point. A trip to Greece just to see this tomb would be well warranted. I would have never known to go if I hadn’t booked this trip. Getting a local’s insight of the region and the country was also interesting. Our guide was extremely friendly and kind and I could tell he enjoyed showing a stranger around the great things in the area.
Astonishing Alexander Tour
Because of the very small group of 2 persons, this tour was like a private tour where the guide was also the chauffeur. We could ask our very friendly guide Ilias almost about everything. It was a very nice trip !!
