Dee met us at the docks with the van and a driver. She was very knowledgeable and explained what everything was as we drove into Athens. She took us to Olympic stadium where we stopped for a few pictures. She timed it just right so we got to see the changing of the guards at the Presidental Palace before we were off the the Acropolis. Lots of steps but we're took it slow and it was well worth the hike!
We had to amend our group number due to an unforeseen issue. Good communication. Great guide. Always a good experience using Viator.
This was an EXCELELNT TOUR!! our guide Diotima was not only a professional BUT a history professor and provided us soo much detail and was friendly, accommodating and again, like our tour guide Luca in Livorno it was ALL ABOUT US, OUR NEEDS and OUR HAPPINESS!! A MUST DO but ask for DIOTIMA as your guide!!!
The tour guide stayed with us for the whole tour and spoke wonderful English. She navigated the crowds and procured our tickets without any trouble. She stayed with one of our travelers who was unable to go to the top of the Parthenon. We never felt that there was no one looking out for us in the sweltering heat. Her explanations made all the difference in seeing the sites. The van was air conditioned spacious and a Godsend as we traveled with little ones in tow. Most happy we took this tour!!! No regrets! Worth every dime!!! - especially With the heat and excess crowds. I tell all my patients that this is the only way to see Athens and the Parthenon.
Athens is very crowded this time of the year. This Shore Excursion picked us up directly from our ship and we were able to see all the highlights of Athens without standing in line. I highly recommend this Excursion.
We had a wonderful day exploring and saw the highlights in a short amount of time, plus had a wonderful lunch!
We arrived to Athens from our cruise ship and met our tour guide at the port. She picked up our party of six and took us to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Olympic stadium which was used for the 1st modern Olympics in 1896. She then took us to see the Parthenon and two amphitheaters near the Acropolis. Amazing excursion with our guide who was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again in a heartbeat.
This was a very good tour our guide and driver were very friendly and knowledgeable would recommend.
Our guide Val was waiting for us outside the port terminal. There were 6 in our group and were driven in a small bus that could hold about 20 people. Val was very knowledgeable about the history of Athens, and was careful to point out everything she could as we drove to the Acropolis. Entry fee was 20 Euros. The climb up was not as steep as we anticipated but we had to watch our footing the entire way as the path was rocky and with marble rocks that could be slippery, and some steps were high steps. The crowd climbing up was very pushy and rude. It felt like a mob scene on the top half of the climb. There were no railings to help. Once on top, Val carefully explained the significance of everything and the site was awesome also. After the Acropolis, we just drove back to our ship. The entire tour was 4 hours,
Helen was an excellent guide and Janis a good driver the family all enjoyed the trip :despite 100 degree heat
we were comfortable in a.c. vehicle.
Our tour was simply incredible. Our tour guide Eleni (Helen) was an exceptional teacher. She brought maps and other materials to help with her explanation and was eager for us to ask questions rather then stick to a script. We have taken a fair number of tours over the years and this was the bes
Nine of us as a group had taken the tour on the 28th of August 2014. It was excellent. Our tour guide was Helen and she came and picked us up from the port sharp at 7:30 am. Helen was very knowledgeable about Greek history and she took great pains to explain all our questions. The vehicle was a Mercedes van well equipped and the driver was also good.
Our driver and guide were very accommodating. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the day in Athens - seeing all the sites on our agenda.
Our tour guide was very well versed in Greek history and was able to present it to our group in a way that was easily understood.
Helen was wonderful, given the time constraints (our fault!). Next time, we will plan for more time so we can enjoy this stunning and fascinating area at a more leisurely pace.
Tour was too short for the price paid. Guide Dee was very nice, professional and knowledgeable of the history of Athens.
Note from Viator:
In all our tours the approximate duration and the exact price are displayed in Viator's website. All details are known before someone proceed to booking. The specific guide is deputy professor at the University of Athens. She is one of our best. Clients could have asked for a small extension of the tour. We are always flexible to this.
Disappointing. Our guide was very pleasant. But the driver was obviously a smoker therefore the car stank to cigarettes, absolutely no consideration for the tourists. Athens had a depressed feel about it, and I would not consider going back there again.
