    Kimon was a terrific guide. Passionate about the subject matter and very attentive to the pace of the tour to ensure we covered all of the spots to sight-see in the allotted time. Coupling the museum tour to follow after visiting the Acropolis was great because there was so much context to the museum exhibits and flow after the walking tour. Highly recommend!!!

    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.

    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. Overall we had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend to anyone!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The climb to the Acropolis was challenging but she stopped often enough to ensure that we all made it!

Our guide Eli was super enthusiastic and mindful of our group. Learned a lot and burned a lot of calories too!
