The best part was the guide, Koko. Funny, inteligent, engaging, comunicative, with a lot of stories, anegdotes, references. Was open to questions and even hang out with us after the tour. His whole personality really makes him stand out from other guides as he also shares some of his personal experiences (like Miška his dog on his shoulders for the pic for his business card imitating 'the good sheperd' kuros sculpture). I have a Master degree in fine Arts as I've finished the Art academy and found Koko answers deep, toughtful, with a great understanding of the matter. He would do a great job as teaching art hisrory to students and think that anyone who doesn't engage him or give him an oportunity is a fool. Also he's young and fit, energetic, somebody who truly can bring to life things when he speaks =3

Kimon was our guide and we joined the existing group tour at 11:30am (some of group had already been on other parts of tour) near the Acropolis in an easy-to-find yogurt shop on a pedestrian street. Kimon was very good at explaining logistics and slowly and in most cases in a shady location led us up the hill to the Acropolis - allowed us free time and we met him later at museum for museum tour.
I had visited Acropolis before but it is always inspiring and fun to see. The real star of the show was the new (to me) musuem and Kimon's tour explaining things and how they related to Parthenon, etc. It was excellent.
The only issue - unrelated to tour - took place on the metro. The system is pretty good but you have to watch your pockets really close and watch out for bad guys. We took metro from Pireaus Port and back and on return trip, three thugs tried to block us in by holding the metro car doors shut so we couldn't get out. I shouted expletives loudly in his face - the whole car looked their direction and whoosh the doors opened. I'm not sure what they had planned but it wasn't good and it was a frightening experience that you need to be aware of if riding the metro.

Thank you for your comment and the time you took to write it! We are glad that your meeting point was easy to find and that you enjoyed your tour with Kimon at the Acropolis and the magnificent new Museum! In Athens Walking Tours we work to offer you the best memories from Athens. Athens is one of the safest cities of Europe so we imagine that this mysterious incident at the metro could have happened anywhere. In any case, we hope that your overall stay was great!

The acropolis Walking tour with my guide (Artemis) was a real highlight of my first visit to Athens. Beyond the aesthetic vision I learned many very interesting Details about culture, religion and state Affairs of the ancient Athens State, so that the buildings were filled with life beyond their incomparable monumentality. I had time to have a look at Details, without any hurry, and i liked it very much to explore the Acropolis with Artemis, a guide as learned as enthusiastic.

Our guide ( Aggliky / Angela ) was very knowledgeable, she explained the history of the whole tour without hesitation. She reminded us to get drink of water, as it quite warm and always seemed shade when we stopped to regroup to listen to her.
