What people are saying about National Observatory of Athens

We booked this tour the night before after realizing we would probably learn more with a guide than on our own. We are so thankful that we booked this tour! Kosta (I think that was his name) was fantastic!!! He gave us so much information and always had time to answer our questions. The walking tour was great! He took us through so many interesting areas of the Plaka and then on to Monastiraki Square. It is also great to the tour of the Acropolis early as it was starting to get crowded as were leaving.

We enjoyed our ride around Athens to the coast line. Our guide was very friendly and did a great job catering our ride to our rising style. It was nice to ride around and see the different parts of the city but, especially fun to see all the boats at the port. We stopped for some local treats including some wonderful Bourekas to which our guide treated to us. We also got a great recommendation for dinner restaurant which was fantastic. I definitely recommend this tour during your next trip to Athens.

Very nice exploration of the sights of Athens with practical tips and locations for tourists who are in Athens for the first time. Dimitri was a TOP guide who was able to give a lot of information and background information in a relaxed manner. Tour highly recommended, easy to do even without an e-bike.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. We had an amazing tour of the Acropolis despite the heat. The only complaint was that hearing devices did not work very well, but it was a small group, so we were able to be close enough to to hear.

Julio was an excellent , friendly and knowledgeable guide . The bicycle tour was a great way of getting an overview of Athens . We are so grateful to him for making it so enjoyable. Thanks
