We had an amazing tour with Annie, who was a professional, knowledgeable and very friendly guide. We would highly recommend a tour with her! We did the Acropolis of Athens, Ancient Agora and the Agora Museum Tour which gave us a great overview of the history of ancient Greece. We were able to ask many questions about Modern Greece as well. We had a great time!

Keeping you both informed and happy is our primary goal, dear guest, and we couldn't be happier we succeeded. Annie is indeed a skillful professional and a spirited communicator; she will be elated with all the nice things you wrote about her. We hope to host you again soon in our beautiful city. Until then, keep having a great time!

We had an excellent tour delivered by two very engaging guides. It was a great way to see all the main attractions and learn about the history of the city. The tour was organised in a very good way. The guides could also answer our questions very well.

Despina has organised a splendid tour of Athens acropolis for us at the end of July 2020.
2 families with young kids ranging from 9 to 23.
Despite our early 8:30am start the temperature was already creeping up and her careful stops in the shade with stories of the acropolis but also about Greece an Athens have been a real success managing to keep the attention of all.
A real pleasure.

The Acropolis is the most famous but not well preserved. Plus you cannot get up close. The better preserved similar temple is in the Ancient Agora within walking distance of the Acropolis in the Ancient Agora complex where you get really close to the structure and it is remarkably well preserved.

Our tour guide was Eli. She was excellent. Very informative, enthusiastic and full of energy... we loved every minute of this tour. We went to the museum as well. The walk up to the Acropolis had many stops filled with historical information. Not to be missed!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Acropolis and the ancient Agora. Thanassis, our guide, was very knowledgeable and entertaining as he explained ancient Greek life and its impacts on us now. He obviously loves Greece and is delighted to share with folks the splendors of Athens. I would recommend this tour.

Evita Tsioli was our guide. Her background is in archaeology and she was incredibly knowledgeable. She is kind and took good care of us, especially in the 38C/100F degree weather. I really enjoyed the stories and connections between modern and Ancient Greek and the meaning behind the myths. She’s wonderful!

Extremely disappointed with the cancellation of our tour on the day without prior knowledge, we were offered an alternative however it disrupted our schedule and we had to make a quick decision at the meeting point without having the opportunity to research if that’s going to be a suitable substitute, even though they had our contact details they waited until the meet up to notify us of the change. not to mention we then had to rebook our original tour as it is something we wanted to do. The actual tour we were given was good, we had two different guides for different sections, one guide much better than the other, you could see that one had a true love for history but both were good. The true disappointment was the change and I get it’s probably in their ts&cs I just don’t think it’s fair to change plans on tourists with limited time because they didn’t get the numbers, and I think 2 people would have been sufficient for a small tour in the middle of Athens anyway.

Dear guest, Thank you for your detailed review. We are glad that you enjoyed your tour with both of our guides. Our team consists of excellent, experienced, licensed guides sharing their wealth of knowledge and their passion about Athens with our guests. Our tours operate every day all year round. We do honor our bookings and we respect the limited time that our guests spend in Athens and their wish to see as much possible of the city’s history during their stay. When, for unforeseen reasons, we have to cancel or make some change on our guided tours, we always inform our guests in advance and always offer some alternative. As far as it concerns your case, the tour to the Ancient Agora was scheduled to operate on that day and this is why you were not notified earlier. Unfortunately, the guide who was assigned to do this tour could not work on that day due her son’s sudden morning illness and we were not able to substitute her with another one last minute. This is why we were not able to offer you the Ancient Agora and we kindly asked you either to do the Acropolis Museum tour instead or be fully refunded. You chose to do the Acropolis Museum and as you said it was very nice and you enjoyed it. We are really sorry for the inconvenience caused and we hope that your Athens experience was great.

This tour was actually two tours back to back. Our guide for the first half was Eleanor. She was an excellent guide and very informative. We watched the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier, walked through the National Gardens and finished up at Zeus Garden. It was a very pleasant tour with lots of interesting bits of information. The second tour was with Ioanna who is an Archaeologist. We toured the Acropolis and the Agora grounds and museum. It was cold and incredibly windy at the top, but still very interesting. Please note - this is quite a hike up and quite a few steps up on slick marble stairs. Some steps are tall. Wear sturdy shoes with soles that grip well. All the steps you walk on are the original stairs placed there 2,500 years ago. Both tours are worth the time and effort.

Dear guest, we are honored that you equally enjoyed both the tours, even on a back to back basis and cold weather. Both Eleanor and Ioanna are wonderful guides and top professionals. Thank you for sharing all the thrilling details of your experience! We hope that the next time we have the pleasure of hosting you, you will enjoy much milder weather conditions. Until then, stay safe and keep collecting lovely memories!
