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!

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.

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.

Our 1/2 day private tour was absolutely wonderful. We were picked up at 9AM at our hotel and were transported around the city in a large Mercedes van. We were a total of 6 people in the back seats, and were very comfortable. Our guide, Raina is a super outgoing, personable, friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable person. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. Raina, and our driver, Socrates, were also very flexible about dropping us off at another location after the tour ended, and gave us great restaurant recommendations and tips for other must visit sites.

WOW!!! What an amazing day with Maria!!! Maria was punctual, knowledgeable, patient, informative, personable and helpful!!!! The Mercedes luxury 15 person coach there were 8 of us was the best way to see Athens. Originally we were scheduled to have two, four person vans and were so pleasantly surprised with the luxury coach so we could all tour together. We were dropped off at the entrance to each tour and our driver was waiting for us when we were finished with each tour and had the A/C going, which was so nice in the sweltering July heat.
