The tour was excellent I learn a lot of information of Athens Greece. I recommend this tour one because small group get more information out of it. The view where amazing
Alexandra was our guide. She was such a wonderful person. Such passion for the Greek culture and a proud citizen of Athens. I love when your guide knows their stuff and they are so anxious to talk about it. Great time. And she got us to the front of the long line at the Parthenon Museum!
Guide Betty was so good! Told the ruins' stories in an interesting way for non-historians. Moved at a perfect pace, paused for story effect and rest and the best times, offered picture taking point suggestions, Connected 1st building, 2nd building of Parthenon and various uses over the ages in easy to follow flow. In the museum. Brought the artifacts to life, linked them to what we saw outside, was wonderfully selective in choosing items on which to focus ( because the amount to see was overwhelming). She was vastly knowledgeable with a sense of humor as well. No questions were silly and she kindly repeated things when asked. 15 years of travel and she ranked in our too few guides!
The knowledgeable guide made the experience a wonderful one. The tour was able to cover most of the historical elements without being too long.
The tour guide, Efrosia, was very knowledgeable and very friendly. She told us very important information in a very helpful manner
Loved it! Full of knowledge and great story telling. The guide was friendly and had a great sense of humour.
The tour guide Ava was excellent! She was so knowledgeable and very proud which was lovely. I would do it again as there was so much to learn and it was beautiful.
It was a wonderful tour and Lisa was the most gracious and knowledgeable guide ever! I truly enjoyed every minute. The Acropolis museum was also mind blowing, such a perfect architectural structure and so becoming to its surrounding. Thank you!
Our female guide, Jossea (we called her JOY), was very knowledgeable, professional, thorough & easy to understand (on our ENGLISH tour). This is a “Walks in Europe” tour. We toured the Acropolis and then the Acropolis Museum in the morning. Some Athen tours skip the museum. Why would you want to skip one of the most important museums in the world? Wear comfy shoes and take water. We are relatively fit 60/70 year olds ~ we had no issues keeping up with this group.
We really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the Acropolis and Museum and was able to provide a great deal of history related to the site.
