Overall disappointing. First off the coach arrived late and then we had to undergo a series of transfers before finally taking off The English speaking guide was certainly not upto the mark as her command of English was poor. At the Acropolis, we were made to stand in the sun

Private tour and transfer was booked weeks in advanced, but somehow they had problems figuring out where the pick up should be despite the fact it was communicated via phone and email multiple times. I finally gave up, and arranged a private transfer instead of using Key Tours.

The Keytours people arrived on time and were very nice. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area, history, and really brought to light details that pleasantly surprised us. The reason we only give a 3/5 rating is because at the end of the tour they left us at the
