    Great start to understand Greek history and mythology.
    Artemis was our tour guide for the morning and she was absolutely brilliant. It was so nice to hear about the history and she is definitely the most knowledgeable. I love her style and sense of humour. Great delivery on historical facts, with some anecdotes. The your itself is very well organised and absolute professionals.

    Great day out and so well organised
    We joined the tour on Thur, 22 Feb. Our guide was Sophia and driver was Marios. The tour was just perfect, so well organised. A full coach of tourists and yet Sophia managed to hold our attention, whilst going thro Greek history and mythology. It was hard on the driver with the traffic conditions in Athens but Marios was such a steady driver, no issues. We had decent rest breaks and all were taken care of. It was good to learn about the history.

    Great experience whilst in Athens.
    Booked this as fancied something different. Had a great time. our chef was a young female ( sorry can't remember her name!) and she was excellent. Only us and another 2 so 4 in total which was really nice. Views in the evening spectacular and the food we prepared then ate was plentiful- we all took home a doggy bag. Highly recommended.

    So fun!
    This was such a fun way to learn about Athens. I wasn't really sure what I was signing up for, so I am going to try and list some things that would be helpful to know after the review. Our tour guide Margarete was so informative and had great information and little side stories about the sites. It was a LONG tour (but we chose that) and a lot of walking, but there is literally no other way to access these sites. Also, the tour ends during the hottest part of the day at the Acropolis museum, which is indoor and air-conditioned. It was honestly really nice to walk around Athens this way. I highly, highly recommend this tour. Some things to note: -The cost of this tour is just for the guide and the tour itself. You will need to buy tickets to access the sites yourself, but they will sell them to you. Just be ready with cash. I think it was about $70 total -The meeting point is at a parkway of some sort, but the actual meeting place was inside the metro station at that parkway. We almost missed our tour because we didn't know or catch that. So, if you can't find a group, walk down into the Metro station and look for people -The tour includes "skip the line" passes at places like the Acropolis and the museum, but almost everyone will have those, so be prepared to still wait in line. -If you are going in the summer, it is HOT. Bring water. If you have space in your luggage, bring an insulated bottle to help keep it cold. -The Acropolis will probably be busy when you go, so if you want it not busy, you would have to go back on your own and buy a new ticket, aim for sunrise for no crowds -I know some travel bloggers recommend doing Athens at the end of your trip so you have wiggle room to account for ferry cancellations, etc. I would say do not to that for an all-day walking tour. I would have been absolutely beat and not made it the whole day, but like I said we booked the longest tour. There are shorter ones.

    Excellent experience touring the Acropolis!
    We had an amazing early morning tour of the Acropolis with tour guide Niobe. She was very knowledgeable, easy to understand, and funny. She had the perfect balance of letting us explore a bit while keeping the group together and seeing all the highlights before the mobs made the site difficult to navigate. Strongly recommend the tour company and booking the first tour of the morning.

    Fun 4 hours with friends!
    It was a fun way to spend a cold day in Athens! The instructor was great! The preparation and actual hands on the food was perfect! The food was delicious and we took a lot of it with us for the next day. The atmosphere was great and the view from the class was unbeatable.

    Energetic and Knowledgeable
    Artemis is knowledgable and enthusiastic. She uses a bit of the Socratic method, and is fun and a dedicated Greek cultural ambassador. You'll be entertained by her witty and lively presentation. She works hard and keep our interest throughout!

    Wonderful cooking class
    We had a fantastic time at the cooking class with Stella. She kept us busy, entertained, and taught us about the techniques and history of greek cooking. She also offered to take pictures of us. Everything was clean and organized and catered to dietary restrictions. The views are unmatched, kids had fun, and the meal was delicious. Must-do activity when in Athens.

    Great cooking class.
    It was fun and we enjoyed how things we set up. The meal was very enjoyable, we received copies a recipe for everything we made. One of the best parts of the evening is meeting new people and the view of the Acropolis.
