We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide was Christina, she spoke excellent English, shared lots about the history and sights of Athens which was very enjoyable and appreciated. Afterwards she shared fantastic recommendations for food and drinks around the city, all 10/10. Would definitely recommend this tour upon your arrival to Athens as it is a great introduction and request Christina for any English speakers.

This was a perfect way to get a general feel of Athens ,and so pleased we did this first off. Christina was an excellent guide - she was knowledgeable, warm and friendly and it was very easy spending 3 hours with her chatting and learning about Athens and it's history. She gave us tips for lunch too. We would certainly recommend this. Big Thank-you to Christina xx

Cannot recommend this tour enough. Christina was an amazing guide and a true expert on Athens. She went out of her way to personalize our experience and provided some other great recommendations for after the tour. The trip would not have been as successful without her knowledge and advice.

Thanks Christina! Great experience, glad we did this as gave us a snapshot view of Athens and helped us decide what we wanted to pay for and do for the rest of the trip. Also showed us areas we would never have known were there too. Would definitely recommend.
