This is a must do in Athens. My daughter and I met another mother and daughter and had a wonderful evening with an amazing view of the Parthenon and surrounding neighborhood. Our wine sommelier was very knowledgeable about all the regions and wines of Greece. The wines are very under appreciated as I found them comparable if not better than the wines in France and Napa California. After the sunset it’s a wonderful neighborhood to stroll around in and stop in a few bars playing music and talk to the very gracious and friendly people of Athens.

We had the best experience! Our driver, Antoni, was patient, accommodating, flexible, and showed us the best of Meteora! He stopped at all the great viewpoints and gave us the option to visit more than one monastery. The drive is so challenging but our ride was comfortable and we didn't even notice. We had so much fun and we slept the entire way back.

Doerella met our party and quickly learned our names. She took us to a number of great locations, explaining the history, culture and meaning of each taste. She was fabulous. Eat and fish market, coffee, pie, euros..we tasted so much. A must in Athens.

The trip was very nice. The ship was spacious and clean. The islands were very beautiful, although it would be great to have more free time on each island.

A really fun light hearted fly through the city on quieter roads and lanes. A great way to spend a morning
