We cannot thank the supplier enough for their exceptional service to us in Athens. We landed the day before the general strike and were told that the Acropolis might be closed the day of our tour. Despina arranged for our guide Vicki to meet us in our hotel within an hour that day so that we could see the Acropolis the day before our scheduled tour. Vicki is an excellent guide with a deep and thorough knowledge of the subject. We absolutely loved her! We would have been extremely disappointed if we missed seeing the Acropolis. Despina and Vicki made it possible. Despina went out of her way to check on us during the following days to make sure we were okay.
