I did this tour with Kyriakos recently. He was a very kind and good guide that provided a lot of information during the tour, and sent everything we covered after the tour as well as some suggestions of other places to try. The one thing I was a little disappointed with though was that for the price, I was hoping to try actual Greek dishes but it was mostly snack type foods like pastries, cheese, olives, etc... Nothing wrong with that kind of food but I like to try main dishes as well. Otherwise good tour.
Theresa was fantastic! The information given to me was clear and memorable, not to mention interesting on both historical and contemporary fronts. The tour was completely flexible and I was able to request a detour or rest. My tour guide Theresa was full of energy and information - and at no point did I realise I was meeting her for the first time! Give her a pay rise!
My tour guide was very friendly and even showed me additional things that were not planned because we finished early. I learned about so many great neighborhoods and areas that I wouldnt have known of before. I cant wait to explore them and try tavernas in each of the neighborhoods!
