Our tour guide, Joanna, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited Parliament to watch the changing of the guards, which was a very unique and memorable experience. The highlight of our tour was visiting the Acropolis and learning about the history of the Parthenon. The journey up to the Acropolis could be challenging for some, with steep inclines and some uneven pathways but well worth the effort. Being on the tour, Joanna already had our admission tickets so we were able to bypass the LONG line of tourists who were not part of a group waiting in line to purchase their individual tickets. Once at the top, Joanna was quick to find some shade from the hot sun while she gave us our history lesson about the Acropolis and surrounding area. Given that the tour was private, it was a great opportunity to set our own pace and ask our own questions rather than being part of a larger group so you are able to learn more about what interests you, specifically.

Anastasia was FABULOUS. By having a personal tour guide, we were able to get a lot of information about Athens and was able to go at our own pace. We also were able to sneak through the large crowds when needed, to keep moving along. Having the detailed attention made the tour more interesting. Would recommend this private tour to everyone.

Very professional, on time, at the right place and flexible enough for us to get a bit to eat after arriving at an early hour. Hara was a very experienced and entertaining guide, and managed to give us just the right amount of information without us feeling overwhelmed. The 400 mtr line for tickets to the Acropolis was a sure sign that a small tour group and a dedicated guide was a great decision.

Effie was the best. Patient and open to our needs and desires. Well worth the time and money spent. After this private tour, I will always look for a private tour over a bus tour as one can not only see and do more but you never feel like a number.

Eugenia was fantastic: knowledgeable, articulate, passionate and personable. More than just a guide -- a storyteller. Can heartily recommend.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Our tour was excellent! We loved spending the time with Effie, our guide. She was patient with our many questions and was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour if you only have one day in Athens. We believe we received a good overview of the city and its history.
