For us this was an interesting introductory tour to Athens. The guide was very knowledgable but inevitable there were time pressures especially in the Acropolis Museum. We were able to stay on at the Museum after the tour ended and explore it more thoroughly. One niggle was that as we didn’t have individual tickets, we had to ‘persuade’ the security man at the lower level excavations, which are very interesting, to let us enter to look around. This should not have been necessary and GYG must arrange for their clients to have full individual tickets/passes for the Museum and Excavations just as we had at the Acropolis. The Acropolis Restaurant is excellent and an ideal place to have a quick lunch after the tour. Though we enjoyed it, in our view the tour is on the expensive side for a half day tour with a relatively large group.

It took the hassle out of trying to get to places, we were picked up from our hotel. our guide was very helpful. The only down side was we had to pay extra for the entrance onto the museum and the acropolis. Our guide couldn't actually come into the sites with us.

Very happy with the tour. The pick-up bus came exactly on time. Our guide Yiouli was simply excellent (experienced, knew how to guide a group, had all the facts and good stories to tell). The early morning start meant we got to places before long queues.

I recommend this tour to anyone out there looking to full explanation about those historical sites, costa the guide tour Explained lots of things and could understand as he was explaining things in details which was amazing tour enjoyable.

We were at prvite tour with amazing guide Costa that was so funny and full of knowledge. He took us the most important things at Athens and was so kind to us. Thanks Hadar
