    This experience was amazing! The communication was good across the board. We were directed via phone call to our driver from the port so there was no confusion at all. The driver (we called him 'G') was funny and warm, he was talking to us about the history of Athens and about himself and made us feel like family. He not only dropped us off but walked us to the tour starting point. The tour guide was amazing she knew so much of the Greek history and mythology it was a very in depth and insightful tour. She constantly stopped to talk about the history (we didn't feel rushed) and made sure we were all okay and having fun. We saw so many amazing sites and learned the background behind them. We finished our tour and called the driver who earlier gave us his number and he came straight away to pick us up. We made it back to the ship in good time.

Our guide Odysseus was amazing! From the minute he picked us up at our hotel he was very polite and informative. He gave us excellent i historical background. He even stood in line for tickets for us while we were sightseeing! We visited the acropolis museum, saw many architecturally significant buildings, and watched the changing of the guards. We even visited some special sites that were perfect for taking photos. Visiting the acropolis was one of my bucket list items and it is definitely a highlight of my trip. I highly recommend this activity.

Odisseas was an exceptionally, well versed guide. His professionalism from pick-up to drop-off was consistent, & I felt safe and at ease under his care. He was charming and hilarious with an ability to answer questions seamlessly while transitioning to new facts at each location. He was a true gem and I'd suggest his services to any incoming tourist. It was the highlight of my short visit. I was able to combine local tradition with an ancient Greek mythology lesson in one setting. Just perfect!

Kimon was an amazing guide! He was flexible, which was perfect because it allowed our group to move at our own pace. He was also funny and very informative. Definitely check out this tour of the Parthenon, acropolis, royal gardens, temple of Zeus, arch of Hadrian, syntagma square and changing of the guard.

Great tour guide, organized tour. You get to really experience a lot of Athens, and have time afterwards to explore on your own
