What a wonderful way to start our visit to Athens. Our driver and guide picked us up right on time at our hotel, drove us through town pointing out all the highlights as we made our way to the sites. It was great bypassing the ticket lines as our guide took care of the tickets for the Acropolis, Parthenon, Acropolis Museum and guided us through at a great pace. She was very knowledgeable and answered everything that we asked. It is always nice to have a guide that really focuses on what you want to see and not what they think is important, she was very focuses on our pace and our interests and we loved that. We would highly recommend Siva Private Tours.

I count myself very lucky to have chosen this tour. My guide, Kostos, proved to be a superb companion and, in addition, a qualified archaeologist. He tailored the tour to meet my particular areas of study and it was a delight to be able to discuss the things we explored in such depth. This tour is a must for the amateur or ardent classicist.

Our guide Barbara was wonderful. We were group of 4 with one person needing cane due to injury. Barbara paced the trip and arranged for access up to top of Acropolis. We saw all the sights and our time was maximized.

What a wonderful way to see all of the highlights of the city! Hara was our guide and she was on time, waiting for us in our hotel lobby. She has her PhD in anthropology so she was very knowledgable and answered our many many questions. If you are interested in history and ancient civilizations, I would recommend this tour. It is a little on the expensive side depending on the number of people in your group. However, it is well worth it to have the one-on-one attention.

Wow, we where in Athens in a extreme heat wave, therefore our wonderful guide which we can't remember his name if anyone at Viator or Siva Travel know his name, please, please mention it had the brilliant idea to make visit the Acropolis first, It was magical, wonderful he has so professional, knowledgeable, educated in the history , not just of the Acropolis but of Greece itself. We visited the Olympic stadium, the parliament and we got to see the change of the guards, what wonderful experience the steps they perform it will blow your mind. We then proceeded to the Zeus temple, again it was an amazing site one after another. It was truly a Athens city Highlights. My parents came with me and like most people they were very excited about the Acropolis. When I asked them if they liked it ? Their answer was, more than we expected it!
Again we ask if anyone knows our guides name please thank him from us...he and our expert driver made this day a memorable day.

Our tour guide Stadi? sounds like study was excellent. Rich knowledge of Athens, and was ready to switch things around to accommodate our interests and rest when we were tired. Started with the Acropolis, the Agoura, walked a little through the Plaka, then a tour around Athens. The tour van was air conditioned and very comfortable. Recommended!
