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.
Must see. We could have seen the sites on our own, but with the help of the tour guide it was more interesting. We leaned a lot due to the passionate guide, who knew her history very well.
Guide was very knowledgeable, and the combination of seeing Acropolis in the morning, with the driving along throats to cape Sounion was perfect.
The guide makes all the difference and Dorina was absolutely fabulous. She was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly the right things to point out and elaborate. We were also included in the trip to the museum and that was superb. The second half of the day was fine as well although the guide was a bit monotonous. The shore-side drive was awesome.
The tour was great. Our guides Vicky and Laila were very knowledgeable and nice. They made the experience amazing. I would highly recommend the tours.
These tours were actually two individual tours. The morning tour was the Acropolis Walking Tour and the Cape Sounion Tour was in the afternoon.
The Acropolis walking tour was very interesting visiting a number of old temples, culminating in walking up the Acropolis to see the Parthenon. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained facts very clearly referring to visual aids from time to time. Can recommend very much.
The Cape Sounion Tour was also very interesting seeing the Temple Of Poseidon and also the views from it. The coach journey was about 1 3/4 hours each way. Maybe this tour could be combined with another to form a full day tour, since 75% of the tour time was taken up in travelling.
My tour was upgraded to the tour of the Acropolis and the New Acropolis museum, then I was switched to the afternoon Cape Sounion tour. Both guides were very knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend these tours.
First tour walking to Acropolis was interesting, the guide (sorry I didn't catch her name) was informative and knowledgeable. The afternoon trip to cape Sounion was really good, it was interesting to see all the villas in the suburbs, the beaches and so on. Good guide Daphne, gave us all the informations on the way.
Not enough people signed up for the Acropolis walking tour so they upgraded me to the Athens sightseeing tour which included more. It turned out great, Daphne, my tour guide was outstanding. She also did Cape Sounion which was actually relaxing after seeing so much of Athens in the morning.
The morning Acropolis tour with our guide stathis was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and the trip to the new museum was great as well.
The trip to Cape Sunion was beautiful, but we were exhausted by the morning trip and most of slept till we reached the temple of Poseidon. The commentary at the temple by our guide was good as well.
A very interesting and informative tour. We really enjoyed both our guides for the morning and afternoon tours, and they gave us loads of information regarding the sites as well as the history and mythology behind them.
This tour was great! The tour guide was very informative and gave clear information about how the tour would proceed. And he was very good about taking frequent stops on the walk up to the Acropolis to give us a break (in the shade) and a short history lesson. I would highly recommend this tour.
And like the info says - be sure to wear sturdy shoes. The marble flagstones on the way up to the Acropolis are surprisingly slippery. Be sure to bring water, as there is none for sale once you enter the Acropolis area and you will need it!
Good tour, where you see all the highlights. Guide was good, but she kept the info just with the basics. We have seen more lively/emotional involved guides in the past other destinations. But still a good way to discover Athens!
Joy, the Tour Guide for the walking tour was excellent... She seemed to really know her history and had lots of stories to tell...which I loved hearing and which makes a huge difference. The afternoon Cape Sounin tour was good.,.enjoyed the drive through other parts of Athens.
