This game was the perfect choice to get to know the city better and have a great time. It was fun to learn some secrets and cool stories other tourists probably won't know and find hidden clues in the city. We also loved the thoughtful gift at the end and all the recommendations from Maelle!

Our tour guide was fantastic!! She was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Greece. We truly enjoyed the walking tour and the added museum tour. I would highly recommend adding the guided museum tour to your acropolis walking tour as they compliment each other.

An excellent starting point for exploring the major points of interest. The guide app takes you to discover not only the acropolis but also neighborhoods and curiosities that I wouldn't have paid attention to on my own!

The play was wonderful and the view from the rooftop was spectacular. Excellent event!

Very friendly chef, great meal, and amazing conversation
