Excellent Tour
This tour was excellent. It was everything that I hoped it would be. Our tour guide Kostas was about the best I have ever seen. His English was flawless, he spoke very clearly and projected his voice. His knowledge of the history and archaeology of Greece was extensive. Additionally, he had the human touch of including the whole group and looking out for everyone and making sure everyone’s needs were met.

We saw the changing of the guard, the National Gardens, the Temple of Zeus, the Parthenon and all the sites on the Acropolis. We also went to the Acropolis Museum. It was a long day but this has fulfilled a lifetime dream of mine to come here. This tour was money well spent for me.

Fantastic Walking Tour- Highly Recommend!
After doing some research, I found this Athens Walking Tour. It seemed to have all of the important sights that are must sees when visiting and it did not disappoint! We LOVED IT! We traveled with our 13 year old daughter and 11-year-old son. I signed up and the purchase process is so easy. We went to the designated spot and met our guide Eli Kritharaki and she was absolutely fantastic!! She was so knowledgeable, engaging especially with the kids in the group. My son is still telling us facts that Eli told him on the trip. It was during that extreme hot spell and Eli was extremely considerate of everyone in the heat. Her knowledge of the history of Athens was absolutely amazing: unforgettable! I would highly recommend this tour and if you can get her that would be a two thumbs up!

Thank you for this wonderful review. We are happy that your kids loved this tour and loved Eli. Eli, like all of our guides, is really passionate about our city and she manages to channel all that passion to all our guests! And even on extra hot days, she makes sure you don't feel it that much by keeping you in shade most of the time. Thank you again for taking the time to leave this review!

Perfect tour in every way!
This was a perfect tour! Our enthusiastic guide, Sissy, knew all about the archaeology and history! She connected Greek mythology with our modern time, and helped us appreciate our shared humanity.

Thank you very much for your kind review and top rating, we greatly appreciate it. Yes, Sissy, apart from a licensed and talented tour guide, is also an avid archaeologist, which makes her tours even more interesting and engaging. Your last phrase, though, "helped us appreciate our shared humanity" was very touching for us, since it is the vivid manifestation of all our hard work, and we would like to specially thank you for it. We hope that in the future you will give us more opportunities to meet the highest of your expectations!

Great overview of the architectural details Acropolis
Jul 2021
Our guide, Kimon, was knowledgeable of all the main Athens sites and Acropolis museum. He is an architect by trade and has a passion for the architecture and history of architecture of the city. This can be a bit in depth at times, but does show his enthusiasm.. He did seem a bit rushed, not allowing for any extra time for questions; we had a very enthusiastic pre-teen who had lots of interest in mythology and Kimon seemed a bit annoyed to be answering questions which was unfortunate. We have been on a lot of tours where the time was not as important at the information given. Overall, it is a long day with lots of information. but gives a good overview of the major sites. If you are interested in lots of architectural information of sites, this will be a wonderful tour for you.

Thank you for leaving this detailed review of your experience. We were really surprised to read your comments, as Kimon is one of our top-rated guides. He constantly receives excellent reviews, as he is extremely professional, a true perfectionist we could say, patient, kind, and indeed very knowledgeable, as you already described. He is always happy to answer as many questions as possible, in fact, he loves it when the audience is really engaged. Perhaps that is the real reason he was more in-depth than expected or desired. Since excellence and customer satisfaction are always our number one priorities, we will certainly look into the situation immediately. We are always grateful when our guests' reviews contribute to our continuous improvement. We hope that in the future, you will give us another chance to give you the tour you wished for. Once again, we do appreciate your valuable feedback.

So much fun!
We had an amazing time on this tour! Our tour guide, Fotini, was very knowledgeable about both historical and current events, and she was so personable. She spent time getting to know our interests and structured the tour accordingly. She was well spoken, and her linguistic abilities were impressive. She took us to some of the less known yet historically significant spots at the Acropolis that further added to the tour. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is looking to learn more about Greek history and culture. Special thank you to Fotini for making it such a memorable experience (request her as your tour guide if you can). Don’t forget to bring sunscreen.

Don't Miss this Tour!
Mar 2020
This must be the definitive walking tour of Athens. Why? The personality and expertise of the Guide, Dorini. She managed to make a 4-5 hour tour constantly interesting, and fun as well as a learning experience. I am not a culture vulture but I now feel its attraction. I found out the significance of the movements of the changing of the guard, the stories behind the myths of the deities, little insights and jokes behind the scenes. My feet may need a rest, but my mind is now on fire! I feel like going out and buying books on Athens, learning more because she has awakened my interest. and in conclusion, although I normally have a very small attention span, I found myself rivetted time and time again by the ease of her command of facts and figures, while at the same time weaving a magical spell. This tour is like a piece of music, it stays in your mind and gives you pleasure over and over again!

Great Athens tour
Tour guide Dorina was great and was extremely knowable about the area and sites. We really enjoyed it and learned a ton. I would highly recommend that if you visit the Acropolis you MUST also do the museum... there is just way too much in the museum that augments what you see outside at the Acropolis. A few in our group only did the Acropolis and they missed a lot in the museum.

Thanks for a great day in Athens!

Our guide Foitini stayed enthusiastic and friendly for all 5hrs30mins of the tour. Took regular breaksbsonit wasn't too much. It was great to have such a knowledgeable guide as we wouldn't have noticed or known the stories behind everything around us. I recommend doing all three aspects of the tour.
