We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide was Christina, she spoke excellent English, shared lots about the history and sights of Athens which was very enjoyable and appreciated. Afterwards she shared fantastic recommendations for food and drinks around the city, all 10/10. Would definitely recommend this tour upon your arrival to Athens as it is a great introduction and request Christina for any English speakers.

This was a perfect way to get a general feel of Athens ,and so pleased we did this first off. Christina was an excellent guide - she was knowledgeable, warm and friendly and it was very easy spending 3 hours with her chatting and learning about Athens and it's history. She gave us tips for lunch too. We would certainly recommend this. Big Thank-you to Christina xx

I booked this trip after a few of days in Athens. I wish I’d booked it sooner as it was a brilliant introduction to some wonderful ancient city sites. It gave me a good orientation to the most interesting parts of the old city although there is much yet to see in this lovely and friendly place. The guide’s (Pascal) explanations about the architecture of the blue and white dwellings of the old city brought the buildings to life in their history.
