The excursion was the realization of a dream come true. Our guide was fantastic and was able to share her knowledge on the history of Athens and current events. We appreciated all her hard work taking us on our tour up to the Acropolis. The tour was great from the moment we got off our ship and met our taxi driver who took us to meet our guide until we met him again after our Acropolis tour and walk in the market area. Thank you to both for a wonderful experience.
We knew that our tour started at 9:30, but we neglected to see that we had to meet a taxi at 8:45 to get to Syntagma Metro Station to meet our tour guide. By the time that we realized this, the cab had already left, so we had to spend an additional 30 to get our own taxi to meet our guide. However, our guide, Evangelos, made up for it by continuing beyond our allotted time so that we still had a 4-hour tour.
A private tour is the way to go! It allowed us to ask questions and learn what was of particular interest to us. It is quite a trek up to the Acropolis, and we were able to sit down in the shade when we felt like it. When we came to a site, we didn't bring a mob with us, so we were able to see everything much better.
Evangelos was kind. He offered a eucalyptus drop when I coughed and brought along sun screen if we wanted it. He bought us a sample of what the Greek's eat, which was yogurt with honey and walnuts--fantastic! He was also very knowledgeable and provided us with an excellent tour. We were very happy that we chose this particular tour!
