I had a wonderful experience on this tour. My tour guide, Pascal, not only showed us the beautiful spots around Athens but explained the history behind it. It gave my pictures more meaning and helped me take better photos. I was surprised by how much ground we covered, it helped later when I wanted to go back and take in the scenery a bit longer.

We had a wonderful morning with Pascal . Athens is very beautiful. We went to the most tourist sight places, all walking distance. Pascal explained us all the history from the Sights and he was very patience ( i was with baby and 8 years child) . Totally recommend the Trip to any family or single traveler.

I had a wonderful morning. I had the guide Christina to myself which was an unexpected pleasure. Christina is the loveliest person and I felt completely at ease with her. She taught me so much about Greek history and Athens. Even though I had already been to many of the main sights in Athens, Christina and I wandered through streets and came across beautiful and historic areas I hadn’t seen. She was happy to tailor the walk to what I wanted to see though I chose to follow her lead. It was a leisurely stroll and we stopped to take many photos. I surprised myself booking a tour labelled Athens Instagram tour however it was the best thing I did!
