Our guide, Rigoula, was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the historical and cultural aspects on the Athenians and the Acropolis. She was able to convey a lot through great storytelling and very adaptable to our curiosity and outlook. Also very generous with providing insight and information about the Acropolis Museum. It was above and beyond what we expected.

Anastasia was the perfect guide. We did a private tour for four and we learned so much, had a great time, and felt like we went at the perfect pace to take everything in. Kostas, the Sales Manager, also helped us pre-tour by email to choose the right time for our tour and make sure we had all the right tickets. Great experience overall.

Efi was an excellent and charming guide. She engaged with my sons' passion for mythology and gave them an excellent insight into Ancient Greek life and the other relevant histories of the Acropolis and Parthenon. As an archaeologist her knowledge was incredible. We came away feeling that we had made a new friend. She also gave them tasks to look at after our tour had finished, encouraging them to explore further. We couldn't have asked for a better guide or experience.
