Be very happy with the tours, touring the city of Athens at night was something magical, the very professional and intelligent guide explained a lot of history of the city, dinner was very delicious in a restaurant overlooking the Acropolis, definitely a place to return .....
Amazing view!The best place to go and see Athens from the top!The food was good,not excellent, like we expected.But beside that, we had an amazing evening! Strongly recommend!!!
Had an amazing Greek experience on my last nite in Athens. Fantastic atmosphere but disappointed as food was not Greek.
The drive to the port of Pireas was good, but you should have at least 15 minutes to walk there. Otherwise great
I booked the tour solo. They still accommodated me and I had a great experience!
