We were beyond satisfied with our experience today. Pascal lived up to our every expectation in both customer service and the description of the tour. We visited numerous breathtaking spots at places I would have never imagined were this beautiful. He not only made sure the pictures were beautiful but shared key information about the sites we visited, making our experience a truly amazing one. He was happy to take the pictures and ensured we had as much time as we needed to take in the stunning views. He was friendly, polite, knowledgeable and attentive. We look forward to booking our next experience with him. Pascal, thank you for the amazing experience and for your love and dedication to what you do. Adriana

Christina is the best guide! She took around to the city gems with amazing views. A very kind hearted, knowledgeable, professionally friendly guide, I would 150% recommend this tour. Looking back at the small group we had just makes me smile over the experience and impromptu memories. Pascal was also quite helpful with organising and reaching out.

An amazing start to our stay in Athens. Christina was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She also helped my wife and I take fantastic photos. We loved the intimate feel of this small group tour. In our case, it turned out to be a private one. Christina also pointed out several recommendations for local restaurants and bars. The meeting place was easy to find and our walk had a pleasurable pace. We’re thrilled to have found this tour. Thank you, Christina! Just book it. You won’t be disappointed.
