Hop in Zinon Tours, in the Greek marketplace since 1952, now offers new tours to its plethora of sightseeing packages. The latest edition is its “Cruising to Antiquity” package that includes a cruise from Piraeus to Epidaurus Port and a bus ride to the ancient theater of the same name.
Highlights of the 11-hour tour include an unforgettable journey across the Saronic Gulf and a visit to the temple of Aphaia on Aegina Island followed by the exploration of the Mycenaean civilization and then a chance to hear the perfection of the acoustic and harmony of dimensions at the unique ancient theatre of Epidaurus.
Hop in’s manager, Manos Tassopoulos, says all the company’s 20 tour packages have undergone an upgrade in both service and content. “In a number of packages we have added a dinner and other additional sites to visit,” he says. “In our one-day Arachova-Delphi tour we have added courtesy pick-up service and a coffee stop at the Olympus Plaza Food Park where we offer free Internet service.”
And for those with a very tight or specific schedule, he offers a customizing program that includes a professional guide, luxury car and driver and an array of choices to visit. Hop in also offers transfer services.
As well, Hop in again this year offers its helicopter tour of Athens that includes a one-half hour of flight to view the Athens 2004 Olympic venues in and around Athens, Piraeus, and include the New Olympic Stadium, the Acropolis and the Panathenian Stadium. “Based on needs and requirements our team can create travel packages that perfectly suit almost any budget and service level required,” says Mr. Tassopoulos.
