Loved our tour with guide Andrea. She was so knowledgeable! Not only did she provide us with the broad history of Athens, but was careful to point out little gems of info along the way. We enjoyed our day so much. There’s so much history & she was terrific about sharing. Thank you! Don’t hesitate to book this tour. Worth every cent. Just a caution, on a hot day, the walkways around the Acropolis are VERY slippery. Please wear sensible footwear. So many tourists in flip flops or high heels!! Not advisable.

Our private tour was excellent. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and directing us to the best and most important areas of the city and Acropolis museum. There is so much here that it can be overwhelming. The context and history behind everything is very important as well and our guide was great. We really enjoyed the full experience.

hi,we were so satisfied with this tour, i felt so glad that i chose that tour as part of my Athens Visit. Tour Guide and driver both were very professional. They both were on time, as a matter of fact tour guide was 10 minutes earlier and he greeted us very nicely and gave us some information in regarding the tour. then they took us on a nice cool car as was described in the tour description and explained many thing about the places that we visited. Tour guy had many extra information that were very interested and helpful. he arranged everything base on our request, we asked for break and he gave us nice break. he was supper kind, took many pictures of us at the best shoots and many many more things that i didn't expect and never had experienced in previous tours that i took. this tour was absolutely worth every penny that we spent on and we left supper happy with many interesting information and many beautiful pictures and memories. thanks to Yanni our tour guide and Eddy our driver.
Absolutely Worth The Money - Must Do!!!

Such a great tour and our guide was fabulous! He was so knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions. Our driver was wonderful - dropping off/ picking up at various spots made getting around very easy. Walking around the Acropolis and neighboring museum with a private guide is the best possible way to learn about the area! We also stopped at the Olympic stadium and saw the changing of the guard at the Greek Parliament. So happy we found this tour!
