This was probably one of the BEST tours that I've ever taken. I got lucky, just the guide (Artemis Olympidou) and myself. Can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to take this tour. Artemis is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Athens and Greek history. Really learned a bunch from her. Thank you Viator, and especially Artemis for such an enjoyable tour!
Excellant tour,guide was very knowledgable,kept us out of the sun as much as possible, did not overload us with info, and left us impressed with the Acropolis.
Tour guide was excellent. He knew the subject and had a great personality as well. This tour involves a lot of walking, so be prepared.
This was a great tour and definitely one to do to orientate yourself around Athens. Our guide (if my memory is correct was Maria?) was excellent and provided a great deal of information along with anecdotes in a very easy to understand manner. The stops on the tour always had shady areas, expecially when we were ascending the Acropolis. Comfortable, supporting shoes are a must and plenty of water.
This was FABULOUS.... really excellent outstanding tour... great guide with incredible knowledge... 5 stars does it no justice... you must do this
This tour was an awesome introduction to the city of Athens and it’s history. Our guide, Aristotle, pointed things out that we would not have noticed if we had just been walking around the city ourselves, and really brought it to life. He even had a binder of photos of what the ruins originally looked like that really helped us understand how the temples have changed over thousands of years. He was very informative, had some great stories, and since we only had about 10 people in our group, he was able to fully answer everyone’s individual questions. He gave us more than enough time at each of the sites to take pictures and was even considerate enough to stop in shady areas for us to sit while he gave the tour. I highly recommend this tour if you are planning a trip to Athens!
The tour and the tour guide were fantastic. We just had 6 people in our group, so it felt as though we had hired our own private guide. She was very informative and gave us amble time to see the sites we visited. Do wear comfortable walking shoes.
Make sure you pack comfy shoes. This tour will take you to the main sights and the Acropolis. Amazing!
Great tour guide, she is so knowledgable and you can feel her passion towards her job.
Excellent; we were late but missed nothing. And we have to say that our guide, Constas, was brilliant - just the right amount of information and related well to us all. Definitely one to go on.
Great tour and Maria our tour guide was great.
the tour was more than expected. the three hours went very fast.
Artemis the tour guide was EXCELLENT! She was very knowledgeable, very positive attitude, and has a great personality. We hit a lot of sites, also had a greek yogurt tasting on a bathroom break. I highly recommend this tour and ask for Artemis if you can!
This tour was a perfect introduction to the city, and a great way to understand the history of this city! The guide pointed out things we would not have noticed if we had been walking around the city, and really brought it to life. Even though it was really warm outside, the guide made sure we were walking or standing in shaded areas and it was a really relaxed stroll around the city, gardens, and Acropolis. The guide also had photos to really help us understand the history of Greece.
I really enjoyed this tour, the sites visited were increadible. Specially the Acropolis, you really can't miss it! The guide was very knowledgable and showed us the main highlights of Athens. The weather was very nice, and we did the whole tour on walk, which was very nice. Really worth it, was a great experience!
We happened to book this tour on a day that the staff at the acropolis were on strike, so in fact we could not go into the acropolis itself. Our tour guide took the opportunity to walk us around many other great sights in Athens, such as the palace and the Olympic stadium. He also took us to the top of a hill overlooking the acropolis and gave us the briefing that we would have had if we were in there, so in fact we ended up with a much better tour than we had even hoped for. I would highly recommend this tour!
Athens has many shortcomings, but this tour redeemed the city in our eyes. Our guide, Kristos, was great. He kept things interesting and kept us in the shade as much as possible. He was a real font of information and made these ancient sites come to life. I would definitely recommend this tour to others coming to Anthens.
We had an absolutely wonderful tour. We learnt so much and had an amazing morning.
