I went to the meeting point and no one was there. Maybe it was the wrong one because you were not accurate about it. You Should have been more specific and give a google maps link. I missed the tour because of that. I would be glad to get my money back.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
We are very sorry you missed the tour. The tour took place as planned and everyone else that booked through Viator found the meeting place. I understand it can be confusing sometimes when you are in an unknown country, this is why we have a 24/7 emergency number that is on your voucher and you can call for anything you may need. If you had called us we would have been happy to redirect you to the right meeting point and you would have made it to your tour. We hope you managed to visit the monuments nonetheless and had a good time in Athens. Please let us know for anything else you may need. Best regards, Tina

The guide was fantastic and we heard just as many stories from the ancient times as we were hoping for. Remember to bring a water bottle and a snack to have on the go as there are no stops.
