I met my tour guide, Annie, at the Syntagma square metro station, as communicated to me via e-mail. Athens walking tours are well organized. Annie, is a lovely guide with a wealth of knowledge about the Greek history and culture. She is also well informed about world events and countries that the tourists are from. She made my first visit to Athens special!

A great way to see Athens

This was a comprehensive tour of the historic parts of the city and the magnificent Acropolis. We covered about 3.5 miles overall, and there were some steps and climbing involved, but it wasn't too bad. We saw the changing of the guard at the Parliament building, part of the gardens, Hadrians Arch, the city center, and, of course, the entire Acropolis. Sissy, our guide, was very knowledgeable and brought some of the mythology of Ancient Athens more relevant to today's world. The museum was a bit rushed, but we had a delay in the middle of the day due to one of the guests, and it took a little time away from the time at the end. Still, Sissy did her best to get us done on time.

Dear Barbara, thank you for your lovely feedback. We are very glad that you were satisfied with both your tour and your guide. We are proud of our guides, because apart from being knowledgeable and experienced, they are also very attentive to guests' needs. Even though there was an unpredicted delay, Sissy did everything in her power to finish on time, without sacrificing quality. This is our philosophy, to go above and beyond what is expected in order to keep our guests happy. We expect you again soon in beautiful Athens, and untill then, keep collecting beautiful moments!

Friends and I only had the day to see Athens and this was perfect! Fotini was an amazing guide! The only downside was how little time we spent in the new acropolis museum other than that it was great!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Zoila, we really appreciate your kind feedback! Fotini will be very happy to read your comment! Our guides are very knowledgeable and talented individuals, who do their very best to give you valuable information within the prearranged time. Usually, our Acropolis museum tours last one hour and a half, which is plenty of time to explore the most significant exhibits. Of course, we have private and semi-private tour options where you can get to choose how much time you want to spend at each section. Perhaps next time you visit Athens, we can give you a private tour at the Acropolis Museum, for limitless enjoyment. Until then, keep collecting beautiful memories.
