This was a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was excellent, extremely knowledgeable with a great sense of humour and an obvious love of history.
Highly recommend this tour. Very informative, excellent guide and amazing historical sights and the new museum is fantastic - really breathtaking. Enjoyed every minute and so did our kids.
Tour guide was awesome, she was so knowledgable I could have listened to her all day!
It would have been better to have been picked up from the ship, we had to get in a cab and race to the meeting point. Well worth it though.
An excellent tour that provided a terrific overview of all the main sites in Istanbul. We were provided with a delicious lunch in a very nice Turkish restaurant near the Cistern. Our guide was excellent and we benefitted from his extensive knowledge. Overall a great experience that we would highly recommend.
This tour is good for those who have a short time in Athens. It gives a very good overview of the City's main attractions even though most of the time is spent at the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum if you include it in your tour. We were picked up at the hotel on time and Angelina who met us in the hotel lobby was very sweet and pleasant to be with. The guide (Eustaf (?), I think) was knowledgeable, professional and passionate about the City of Athens and its sights. He was extremely sensitive to the needs of each person in the group and this made us quite relaxed to actually enjoy the sights. I have physical health issues and was apprehensive about doing this tour but he made it quite easy for me to take my time and I did not miss out on anything, especially when climbing up the hill to the Acropolis. I was somewhat disappointed that we were not able to stop at some of the other sights for a few minutes to take pictures since the coach was moving at quite a fast pace when passing some of these sights. It felt more like an Acropolis tour instead of a Sightseeing tour of Athens. It is what it says :"Sightseeing" so if you want to stop at these attractions do so on your own. Wear proper shoes for the climb up to the Acropolis because many of the stones get very slippery on the way up. If not, watch where you place your feet as you go up the hill. My friend and I got very tired by the time we got to the Museum and we had to sit outside and wait for the group to get our ride back to the hotel. If you are not physically fit, do the museum tour separate. Nevertheless, I would recommend this tour. It is worth the money and Viator always delivers. Viator, you made my trip to Athens a pleasurable and stress free vacation, I was always able to reach one of your agents by phone, whether in Canada, the United Kingdom or in Athens. The tour company was very helpful and delivered. Thanks again. Looking forward to my next vacation with your tours.
Our tour guide was excellent! The tour was very informative and we LOVED the new Acropolis museum.
This tour was well worth its very reasonable price. Great logistics, i.e. timely pick-up from our hotel and a comfortable bus with great AC. Our guide was top notch. She had a very solid grasp of all of the Grecian history. She was passionate and wonderfully demonstrative. She provided excellent historical context, tying-in information from other tours on Mykonos and Santorini.
Very wel executed!
The bus collected us from our hotel and the guide was excellent and was very knowledgeable about the Acropolis, and surrounding area. We were delivered back to the hotel after the tour.
Fantastic tour. The tour covered all that we had planned for. It was very organized and efficiently run. Our guide was great.
