Very knowledgeable guide! This was the best tour!!! I don’t know what we would have done without her, we wouldn’t have near as much information or appreciation for what we experienced on this tour. 20,000 steps logged on this day. My husband has a difficult time walking and we had to take it slow. Our guide was great at accommodating and very courteous.

We learned dramatically more about Athens and its history by doing this tour as opposed to going it on our own. Kostas our guide was excellent and clearly passionate about sharing his knowledge of the history of Athens with us.

Wonderful tour

We loved our guide, Anna. She was incredibly engaging, informative, and enthusiastic about her city. We learned a lot and would not hesitate to recommend this tour to others.

We loved our private tour! Annie was amazing and told great stories! My girls 10-14 were engaged with the Greek methodology stories. So much fun!
