We sea was a bit rough so we couldn't take the boat as planned so Dimitris took us with the car to the Cliff diving location and gave us a great sightseeing tour instead.

    We were a group of 9 and this private tour was the best we did in Greece!!! Both brothers were very helpful and told us Greece history during our trip. We’ve taken other boat trips with snorkeling in other places but this one was special bcse they taught us how to do that and were patient with my kids. They took more than the 7 hrs they advertised. At the end they recommended us one restaurant and took us there. He helped us to order... they were LO MAXIMOOOO!!!

If you’re interested in ancient Greece history and staying in Athens, this is a perfect choice for you. Mycenae and Epidaurus are must-see destinations for everyone who enjoys visiting and learning about ancient landmarks and Napflio is a beautiful coastal city with many instagrammable spots. Athena & Gary were very helpful, funny and entertaining guides. They shared with us a lot of information about visited places, history of Greece, Greek mythology and modern Greek language & culture. We were travelling with a small group of 7 people from 4 different countries what made our trip even more interesting. The guides were open to adjust the schedule to our need so in Nafplio one part of the group enjoyed lunch while the other were walking around the city. Meeting point was very easy to access via metro and travelling by bus was great because we had a chance to see some really beautiful coastal landscapes. All Covid-related safety rules were followed. Highly recommended!!

Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for an acropolis tour in Athens. We had Alexia as our tour guide and she was incredible! She was so friendly and informative. She has 2 masters degrees focusing on the subject matter of the tour and both her knowledge and passion about the subjects are incredible! She plans the tour so meticulously making sure you have the best possible experience! The order she decides to do things makes the tour so enjoyable and also helps to avoid the major crowds. At the conclusion of the tour she also provided amazing recommendations for things to in Athens and other Greek islands. She even walked us to one of the places she recommended so we wouldn’t get lost! She was amazing and so was the tour!

Great tour and tour guide!! She brought illustrations of historical stages which help me understand what the structures looked like as a point of reference. She was very passionate and informative. Best tour have done so far in Greece.

Anna was very nice guide. We had a great time. She was really helpful when we asked her some information about purchasing Greek food in Athens.

Our instructor was exsalant, the food not so much, in my opinion the whine was a bad choice.
