    We had a blast! Kimon -who btw is also a trained architect- was an excellent guide, he not only showed us spots most ppl don’t get to see (nothing less than the birthplace of democracy!), but also delivered an amazing lecture on the Parthenon and other important spots at the Acropolis. A must

    Kimon was our tour guide, and he could not have been better! He was very knowledgeable, humorous, and very dynamic in adapting to the needs of the group. My party commented later about how we overheard a couple of other guides at the Acropolis and received further confirmation that we chose the right guide! If you can get on a tour with Kimon, I highly recommend him!

    Fantastic tour! I booked it after reading a recommendation from the Santorini Dave website and I am so glad that I did. Ioanna was a wonderful tour guide - I learned so much and she made all the history so interesting. Ioanna also coordinated the logistics of the tour perfectly. When she would speak at length about anything she made sure that we had seats or a shaded area to rest. She also knew the best place to get a photo of the Acropolis without the crowds in the background. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens. Thank you, Ioanna!
