Dora is an extraordinary guide, bilingual in French, extremely cultivated and who likes to share her knowledge. She is adorable with children, knows small and big stories, in short, an exciting time !! We recommend it a thousand times! Thanks Dora

Our guide was a nice guide with a lot of knowledge about the mythology of Athens and the surrounding area. We have seen all the sights and were actually short of time because we lingered too long at the Acropolis.

It was a hectic day to see the most of Athens in 6 hours but with the assistance of Nikolaos [TAB5864], our taxi driver for the day we manage to do so. Also I would like to thank Greece Athens Tours. Recommended,

Odysseus was very nice, good driver, informative,

Our tour of Athens was great. Had time to see the sites on my schedule. Would recommend.
