My wife and I were just reminiscing our October trip to Greece. We both felt that one of the highlights was our tour of the Acropolis with Dimitris and thought he deserved a review. Super friendly and knowledgeable, paced the climb as to be manageable for all and answered every question in an accent even us Californians could understand!Would highly recommend!

Our walking tour of Athens and the Acropolis was fantastic. I highly recommend it but make sure you have comfortable shoes. It is a long day but totally worth it. Our guide Maria was really knowledgeable and helpful
Pam Constantine | Jan 24 | City, Acropolis & Acropolis Museum
A perfect way to discover Athens and his ancient wealth. Guide Rina has an excellent knowledge of Greek history and manages to put it all in context and engages the group in her story. I feel i know more about Athens, the Gods, but also the relationship to modern life.Walk goes at a slow pace and easy to hang in there, also up the acropolis. Thank you!

Our tour guide Niobe was amazing! She had the most interesting facts, which made all the difference! She was open to questions and knew all the answers to what we asked. Without this guided tour my experience would not have been the same! It is definitely a must!

A fantastic tour courtesy of Stella, who was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining. A small group of just myself and an Australian couple (Paul and Kathy), it was a wonderful experience and a real culinary treat of a tour. Stella even organised a couple of little surprises for me as it was my birthday! Five stars!
Tom | Jan 24 | Athens Food Tour
We were expertly guided through multiple recipes by the wonderful Stella, and found ourselves with more food than we could possibly get through. It was a fantastic experience and a great insight into authentic local cooking.

I joined the 7.45 tour, and I loved it! Very few people were around and the morning light was beautiful. We were a small group, our guide Despina was extremely friendly and very excited to tell us all about the Acropolis and much more. She made the tour really enjoyable, and gave also a lot of suggestions about things to do later.Highly recommend it!

Steve | Oct 23 | City Tour & Acropolis Museum
We went on this tour today and had the BEST time. Our guide Giota was incredible, so knowledgable and passionate and honestly made the tour for us. She answered all of our questions, went at a comfortable pace in the heat and made a 6 hour walk feel like nothing. Thank you so much Giota! Highly recommend this tour if you don’t have long in Athens - you will see and learn so much in such a short space of time!
Katie Comber | Sep 23 | City, Acropolis & Acropolis Museum
Our tour guide was excellent - knowledgeable, funny and patient. When you see the Acropolis from the ground you think you can’t climb that much, but our guide paced our group perfectly

Excellent, the perfect mix of casual and structured morning. Loved learning the history from Theodora.
Samantha | Sep 23 | Athens Highlights & Acropolis
Nicholas was amazing! With his guidance we prepared a 7 course meal! He was hands on and very engaging. The best part was dining outside with a view of the Acropolis. Wow!
Lonnie | Sep 23 | Athens Cooking Lesson
Easy to book, excellent instructions pre tour. Lots of thunderstorms before we were due to leave but the company returned my very early email promptly which was comforting. Tour was amazing. No crowds this early. Guide Niobe was informative, passionate and entertaining.
