The Ancient Greece tour with George was great. We started on time in Monastiraki sq, and he had planned an amazing experience... took us even on places out of the beaten track, and was very considerate to not make the tour tiring, but enjoyable. He loved mythology and theatre topics, which made the tour so much value when understanding some of the places. Thanks!

I booked the tour one week in advance. I was at the meeting point 10 minutes earlier and waited until 20 minutes after, just to realize they canceled the tour right before it started, with no notification to me. I found it really disrespectful.

Definitely take a tour with George. He knows Athens and knows how to tell stories to make history come alive. We booked a tour that was nearly rained out. Although no one else showed up - he did, and ended up giving us a private tour. He is very enthusiastic and charming. Highly recommended.

Excellent way to explore Athens. George the tour guide was incredibly welcoming to us all, and had great knowledge of all the amazing sites he took us to see. Also gave us several great tips about visiting Athens, including showing us to a fantastic, authentic Greek restaurant at the end of the tour. The best free tour I’ve done in any city, and would highly recommend for anyone coming to visit Athens.
