    Absolutely wonderful experience!!
    This was the first planned activity my wife and I did on our honeymoon. It was truly a great way to start our vacation! Our chef, Stam, was incredibly knowledgeable about Greek culture and cuisine. He was also very friendly and sociable, involving every single person attending. The activity was well organized and together we created an absolutely amazing dinner. We all laughed, drank wine, and made traditional Greek courses. I could not recommend this activity enough, especially with Stam as the chef!

    Perfect Introduction to Athens
    Andreas was an incredible guide! He met us at Monastiraki Square which is the center by the Acropolis. From there he took us to 4 different Athenian restaurants with tremendous history as well as the meat and fish market. With it being our first time to Athens, the tour gave us a great introduction to the city with a varied cultural culinary experience. We booked this tour our first afternoon we arrived. Andreas did a great job giving us history and highlights of the city! Highly recommend to anyone coming to Athens!!

    Great tour
    We did the Acropolis tour with Dorina. She was knowledgeable and very friendly. We gained so much more with her than if we would’ve just walked the site on our own. Highly recommend.

    Beautiful experience, highly professional guide
    This was one of the best guided tours I’ve ever had. Dorina is a highly knowledgeable, talented tour guided. She paced the Acropolis walk amidst a busy touristy September day, stopping at the right moment to convey us the necessary information for the next monument or site. She expressed herself very carefully in a concise, clear manner, though sharing the best historical and mythological details. Thank you, it was a wonderful walk!

    Great experience
    Both my wife and I were highly impressed with our guide, Simon, who was articulate, entertaining, and extremely well-informed. He can do it in Greek, French, or Spanish, by the way! Gave us a lot on insight into art and history of an exciting spot, and also very kind and polite, and humorous, too. 5 stars, for sure!

    Lots of food and information - all presented in a fun way. Although we had to wait a few minutes at our first stop, it picked up and went well.

    Warm but delightful
    We really enjoyed our trip with Anastasia. Her very genuine personality and delightful story telling skills brought the history of the Acropolis to life, and helped everyone in our group appreciate our location. She did not get stressed by the crowds, or concerned about the very warm day beyond making sure we stayed hydrated. Anastasia is a professional who excels at her job. And of course, the Acropolis is amazing , and you can’t throw a stone without hitting another ancient marble artifact!

    Great tour!
    This was great! The guide was helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about teaching us the history of the Acropolis. I'm glad we did this tour, I know we learned more and enjoyed being at the Acropolis without a tour. We did the Acropolis only (no museum) tour with the entrance ticket, which saved us from waiting in a long line, in the sun while the day started getting hotter... buying the tour with entrance ticket is definitely the way to go!

    This is the tour you want!
    Our wonderful, friendly and extremely knowledgable guide Kostas greeted us at our hotel. My husband recovering from back surgery made us decide to get a car and driver so he wouldn't have to climb as much. Together with our driver Kostas explained all the places we passed as we headed toward the Acropolis, our first stop. Kostas brought us to the gate where we could ride the handicap elevator to the top. His communication skills and kindness allowed us this helpful transportation. Once atop by the Acropolis Kostas' knowledge of history and all of Greece was brought to life for us. His notebook showing past and present information was very helpful. He also insisted on taking photos for us by the beautiful backdrops. To say we enjoyed our experience is truly an understatement. Having Kostas as our tour guide brought the history of this fabulous country to life. My only regret is that our time together was only 4 hours. As I could have listened to his commentaries about this country for hours and never tired of listening. He was a fantastic guide and I can't say enough great things about our experience. By all means do not hesitate to book with this company!

    Awesome food and experience
    We spent a great afternoon exploring Athens and many different food types. Caterina our guide was fun and knowledgeable and passionate about Greek food and wine. There were several stops with very generous portions. Excellent value for money and a great way to explore Athens.

    Not Worth the Money
    It was not what I expected. We only visited 2 food places, 1 coffee place, and then a gross fish and meat market. The food wasn't even that good compared to other restaurants I visited in Athens. We didn't stay near the Plaka square. I wish it had included different and better stops, especially for the money paid. They also didn't tell us it included alcohol, in which I wish we could have opted in or out so money could have gone towards better food if we would have preferred that over alcohol.

    Great walking food tour in Athens
    Our guide, Dorella, gave us a wanderful tour with lots of background information as well as many food/drink tastings. I would highly recommend taking this tour if you are a foodie!

Amazing symbolic monument museum at sea front. A must to see when you visit the city.
Thessaloniki's top landmark, the 34m-high White Tower has a harrowing history as a prison and torture chamber.

We learned so much of Thessaloniki's history in a visual and engaging way. Our tour started at the Church of St. Demetrios, where we went underground into the old Roman baths where the Saint was killed. We learned about the history of the many incarnations of the Church from Roman times onward. From there, we saw Byzantine architecture and symbolism in the Church of Agia Sophia and learned more about the origins of the Iconoclast movement. Another highlight was the Rotunda, which was built by the Pagan emperor Galerius, turned into a Christian church, and then turned into a mosque by the Ottomans. We also visited the Arch and Palace of Galerius, heard the history of the White Tower, and ended by the statue of Alexander. The pace of the tour was excellent for us and packed with new information. By far the best walking tour we took in Greece.
