We could not recommend this tour enough. It was fantastic. The 3D tablet view of the monuments really added an extra dimension to the experience. Our guide was an Archeologist. So smart and knowledgeable. Our children loved the tour.

We were delighted with our tour of the Acropolis and with our guide, Evita. After being disappointed a the “official” guides we hired at two other sites (Knossos in Crete and Pompeii in Italy) we decided to try booking a guide in advance. We have two boys age 11 and 14 and we wanted a guide that would engage them -- and us adults too. And we got it. Evita was fun, interesting, and informative. They boys (and my wife) rated her a 10 out of 10. She was really great at engaging the kids and asking them questions. So they felt involved. She used to be a teacher and it shows. The iPads with 3D views were a nice but optional addition to the tour. It still would have been good without them. Overall our trip to the Acropolis created memories that will last for ever.

Our guide was an invaluable part of our experience at the Acropolis. If it wasn’t for her, I would have been looking at a bunch of old white pillars that meant nothing to me. There was little to no signage to explain what you’re looking at. Marilena brought the monuments to life with stories of mythology and daily life in Ancient Greece. She had iPads with a cool program where you could point them at a site and it would show you what it would have looked like at the time. Really helped make sense of what you’re looking at. Our group was very mixed in background knowledge including a toddler, 10 year old, archaeologist, and adults with no background in Ancient Greece. Marilena kept everyone engaged the entire time. (With the exception of the toddler, but that’s to be expected. And she was always understanding when he was distracting or one of us needed to step away from the group. She was great with him and made us feel he was welcome and enjoyed- a trait we’ve found lacking in other tour guides when faced with a strong-willed toddler). I’d strongly recommend her to anyone. Marilena also recommended a couple amazing local restaurants that we wouldn't have known about. She came to dinner with us and helped us chose food and wine. She's such a wealth of local knowledge. We laughed together and learned from her expertise. I feel like I truly made a friend.

We were in Greece for 14 days and we went on a tour everyday but this one was one of the best. The tour started on time and we had Eleni as our tour guide and she was excellent. Eleni spoke perfect English, she was very energetic and charming; she was absolutely passionate in explaining and sharing with us so many historical information about Greece. Make sure that you wear good shoes because there will be a lot of walking but the tour was so interesting that time would go by very fast. Take this tour only if you want to learn a lot about Greece and for tour guide, you must ask for Eleni; she simply stands out to be the best because of her caring personality and professionalism.

We just returned from our 12 day vacation around the Mediterranean and we all agreed this was the best tour of the whole trip. Our guide was Theo and I cannot say enough good things about him. He spoke of the history of Athens in such a way he kept us interested the entire time and his passion for the subject was evident. Don't let the 4 hour tour length scare you off. You get to see and experience so much that the time goes by quickly. There is quite a bit of walking so wear comfortable shoes but nothing my 75 year old mother, fiancé and I felt was overwhelming or strenuous. We honestly could have gone all day seeing Athens through the eyes of Theo! Thank you for a wonderful day!

We were in Athens only for one day off of a cruise ship and initially booked the market/cooking class, but as it was a Sunday, the food market was closed and we cancelled because we wanted the total experience of the shopping for ingredients, etc. that being said, we saw the morning stroll offered and went for it and boy are we glad we did! Eleni, our guide, has a lovely personality and is extremely knowledgeable about her people and country. So many things we didn’t know were told in such a casual, informative way, what a great teacher she would make. We highly recommend this tour, this company and look forward to another visit to Athens....Opa!
