A must when in Athens. The tour gave my wife and myself a real sense of the importance of the Acropolis ruins. Our guide was very knowledgable and gave us a sense of why it came to be. The second part of our tour to the temple of Poseidon gave us an opportunity to see the Greek coastline. The the temple is spectacular. The commanding view was worth seeing by itself.
Our tour guide for the acropolis walking tour was outstanding and the tour felt very personalized to us. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun.
The tour to Cap Souion and the Temple of Poseidon was amazing. The drive was beautiful and we loved the ruins. There were only a handful of tourists there and it was nice to get to see this place without the throngs of people at places like the acropolis.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and not waiting in lines gave us more time to enjoy the ruins.
Our tour guide Dorina was very good. The walking allowed us the experience of the National Garden and the opportunity to see ruins in the area on the way to the Acropolis. Very enjoyable and I felt satisfied with our choice to walk rather than tour bus.
Met in a central location that was easy to get to. The walking tour showed us the highlights of the historical monuments of the city and the guide brought everything to life. Quite a bit of walking involved, and ended up at the Acropolis just around noon, so very warm, but well worth the effort!
We learned so much about the history of the area - lots of interesting details. Great tour!!
This was an excellent tour! We really enjoyed it. It was a long ride but after a day of running around, it was exactly what we needed.
These were both excellent experiences. The guides were superb. We learned and saw a lot in a short period of time. Since we were only in Athens for 2 days, we wanted to make the most of it. We also chose tours because we didn't know what the situation would be like in Greece right before the referendum. We felt very safe and relaxed on the tours. We LOVED these tours and Athens as well, and want to come back. Our prayers are with the people of Greece in this troubled time. Judith
Both tours were informative. The tour down the western side of the pensuliar to Cape Sounion provided a good insight to the local seascape.
Great tour guide. She was able to answer all questions. Beautiful views from the Acropolis. Amazing time at cape sounion to see temple of Poseidon! Athens has a lot to offer!
The morning was a 4 hour walking tour that covered the President's Palace, Olympic Stadium, Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Zeus and the Olympic Stadium. We ended by climbing the hill to the Acropolis. The Acropolis was a bit of a let down as it is extremely crowded and practically covered with scaffolding and cranes. still amazing to experience a 2500 year old monument. The afternoon was a bus ride to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon which was amazing. No crowds, amazing ocean views and a relatively pristine temple. Awesome day!
Great day - the Acropolis was great and the tour guide was excellent with information and knowledge
Cape Sounion was the highlight - unexpected and was uncrowded - a nice coach drie, then this amazing location - we had a really good day!
Awesome tour. Loved every second of it. The goes were very well informed and answer every question.
This tour delivered everything it promised. Our guide, Daphne, was exceptional. She was very helpful to the older ladies that had some difficulty climbing and was very aware of their limitations. She stayed with us extra time to ensure the ladies got down safely, got something to eat and we all knew where to pick up our second tour. Even got a few minutes to shop in Plaka but not much more. Beautiful sunset over the beaches on the drive home.
Both guides were very knowledgeable and informative, specially Vicki of the Cape Sounion trip. They answered the questions patiently and meaningfully both from a historical abd current setting perspectives. Worth it!
morning tour of the various sights downtown including the acropolis was just great, had excellent tour guide who was more an archiologist than tour guide as he incredible depth of knowledge, was able interrelate each ruin wtih what was happening in the world, in the city, in the culture. Museum as last stop which was a great way to close...amazing sites, doable as long as it is not too hot, find the shade any time you can, and water...afternoon bus tour was good, hard to keep new information coming as it takes and hour or so to get to the ruin. the drive along the coast is amazing. once there, very rewarding. very good way to get a taste ot athens in a day...
The sites are all must-see and the tour is well-organized and informative.
