    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.

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.

    Michael was an excellent guide. His English was really proficient making for an informative exchange in such an historically-rich city. The acropolis, which we were visiiting for the first time since 1968, was exhilirating, even with the huge crowds present. Michael knowledge of the area steered us through the crowds and gained us the best viewing angles for photos. In 1968 we walked freely through the Parthenon, not so now.
