A wonderful tour guide and intimate as the group was small. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and Acropolis et al is beautiful. Wear comfortable running shoes with traction e.g. Hiking shoes and there is a lot of climbing. An awesome tour!

This is well worth it as an orientation to a little bit of modern Greek history and a few of the key sites. The meeting place was easy to find, our guide Hermes was extremely knowledgeable, and it covered just the right amount of ground for the time allotted. Ending at the Acropolis is great so you can continue to explore, and use the rest of the day at the Acropolis museum, like we did, or walk to other nearby ancient sites and neighborhoods to explore.

Such a great tour! Was so impressed with Aristotle's depth of knowledge, he really brought the sites to life. And I loved the humour he added to his commentary. Would highly recommend.

The tour was interesting, informative, and enjoyable. The guide, Stavros, was both very personable and extremely knowledgeable -- which managed to keep everyone engaged despite the heat of August in Athens. I'd definitely recommend the experience to anyone interested in Athens' most visible landmarks.
