We are very satisfied with our tour and lovely tour guide we had. We had learned many interesting stories about the Greek mythology and got a chance to see Acropolis almost empty due to off season and early hour.

This tour is a must. We had a private tour with Andreas he was by far the best guide you could ask for. Don’t you dare eat anything before the tour starts, in no time you’ll be treated with different types of tastings. 10/10.

Just had the Food tour today, it was one of our best experience in Athens. The guy (Andereas) was super nice and kind. Everything was fluent and super clear! He took us to local places and told us about the history of the city and the places we visited. If you’re around, do yourself a favor and don’t skip this one!
