100% happy. Hermes was brilliant. Knew his onions, flawless English and funny to boot. Great way to learn the history but not get bored. Plus he volunteers Info like “why didn’t anyone ask me about the toilet paper in Greece”? You can ask him anything. Don’t think twice about it - the tour was worth the money and the agony of 10.240 steps and 27 flights.

Easy to use, downloaded the voucher so we could skip the queues for buying tickets. Also downloaded the app for the audio tour, using the code in the confirmation email to bypass payment. LOVED that it knew where I was via GPS so would tell me what I was in front of!

You must not miss this important history.. A knowledgeable guide makes it so much more interesting . I felt sorry for the people that did not have a guide.

The value for the sites is excellent and the sites themselves need no explanation. The audio guide is incredibly basic and surface level.

Enjoyed the acropolis and the sight seeing in Athens! The audio tour was a bit short. But the map helped show a lot of the city.
