The perfect tour guide!
Could not have been better. Ioannis, our driver, was waiting for us exactly as promised. His English was exceptional and easily understood. We had arranged for our Acropolis tickets to be prepurchased which saved us over a 90 minute wait on line. I can very highly recommend Ioannis and his tour!
Our family was met on time at the port by Yannis S. who politely introduced himself. His Mercedes mini van was impeccable along with his professional and knowledgeable demeanor. We discussed sites we would like to see and relied heavily on Yannis input. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!! I am a very particular person with high expectations and I could not recommend a better way to see Athens. Yannis knowledge of history is beyond words and it was explained in fluent English. Lifetime memories from Athens and thank you Yannis for everything.
I would give this tour a 3 . The guide was punctual and polite. But there was a lack of planning. We were in Athens for the first time and other than wanting to see the Parthenon, we did not know what we wanted to see. It was a disjointed tour. The guide was more of a driver with rolling commentary than a guide. My main complaint was that we would sit in the bus and hear about the site we were going to enter. Then we went into the site. The guide did not go with us, ever. We saw many other tours with guides and wondered what we had paid for as we could have read the commentary in a book. We ended our tour early and paid for a full da tour when we only took a half day, second-rate tour. Very disappointed in this tour and definitely not worth the time or money.
