The tour was complete, dynamic and interactive. The guide is an archeologist from Athens, with so much to tell about the sites and links with mythology. Her talk was nevertheless adapted to our group. A 4-hour tour might seem long but it wasn't al all. It's just the perfect

Our guide Costa was very knowledgeable and approachable. It was a very hot day but he managed to keep us in the shade and as comfortable as possible. The tour went a little longer than expected (about 4.5 hours) but Costa made sure we saw everything we were promised.
