We saw all of the top sights in Athens and the Temple of Poseidon which has amazing views. The temple is about 1.5 hours out of Athens but it is a nice drive along the coast and there are some great places to stop for lunch. Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. I definitely recommend this tour if you have limited time in Athens.

What an amazing experience! Our tour guide Evgenia was warm, kind, knowledgeable, and professional. I learned a lot from her about the ancient Greek history and mythology. Evgenia is a gem. The tour was so wonderful because we were fortunate enough to have her as our tour guide.

This walking tour was amazing. Melina, our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and oh so pleasant! Be forewarned that this tour involves a lot of walking - but so many awesome sights to be seen in this lovely city!

Incredible day spent with Eugenia. We were a group of 4 and instantly knew we had made a great decision to book this tour. We saw it all, learned the History behind every ruin, war and etc. She took us to a great neighborhood restaurant, not on the tourist path and the food was divine. She also pointed us in the right direction for other foods we wanted to have. The drive to the Temple of Poseidon was long but very good time to discuss life in Greece and The USA. I can not say enough how blessed we were to meet Eugenia.

We had a wonderful day with our guide Evgenia! She guided us knowledgeably and professionally through the main historical sites in Athens, including the Acropolis, Theater of Dionysus, Hadrian's Gate, the Temple of Zeus, and both the Roman and Ancient agoras. We had a beautiful afternoon on the coast and even had time for a swim. Thank you so much Evgenia and Warm Penguin tours for a tour that satisfied every member of our family! We really appreciated your kindness and flexibility :

We Walked for the first half of the tour and in this time Melina showed and gave us informative knowledge about the amazing historical sites. The second part of the tour was to Cape Sounion and The Temple of Poseidon. Melina Made this trip fantastic as she was very informative and answered any questions we asked her. I would really recommend this tour as it is a great way to see and learn about the history of Ancient Greece. Thank you Melina for a job well done.

Our guide, Konstantino, was very good and we enjoyed the tour immensely. He picked us up at 9:00, gave us a full briefing of what to expect, and brought us back to the hotel at 19:00. Well worth it.

This is a great tour! Konstantinos is a great guide and very knowledgeable about Greece. He was also our driver and planned out a fantastic full day tour. There is a lot of walking so be prepared for that within Athens but you get to see all the key sites and it is really fantastic. The drive up to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon is magnificent. Make sure you try and request Konstantinos, he really is amazing.

Our private tour of six, was picked up in 2 taxi's from shop dock, and driven through hectic traffic to Acropolis area, where they ensured we met our most informative and pleasant guide, Betty. Additional cost for Acropolis and Parthenon and Temple of Hephaestus The tour guide purchased our tickets, and we did not have to wait in line. It was nice getting a personal tour, as opposed to tours of 25 people, with Betty giving us lots of the history of Athens from memory, not notes, and making it most interesting and easy to follow, with our group stopping prior to points of interest for more info. She also had a book with her of pictures of what the buildings used to look like. There was a lot of walking, and the marble steps were slick and steep in places, so tennis shoes or hiking boots would be recommended. This was quite a congested area with lots of people, and having our guide was most helpful. After a tour of the ancient buildings, we toured the market place area, and those ruins, also given info of what happened here years ago. We ate at a nice restaurant in the Plaka market area, and our tour then proceeded with Konstantino as driver, and guide for the 50 minute drive along the Agean coast, and Sounion area. We did see the Temple of Poseidon perched on seaside cliff, that was beautiful. Additional cost The guide delivered us back to our ship port. It was a most informative and easy way to see everything when time was limited.
