Great experience! The food tour was the highlight of our trip. Viki the guide was superb. She walked us through the authentic areas, letting us taste delicious foods while telling us stories about the culture and history of the locals. Highly appreciated and recommended.
Excellent tour. My husband and I totally enjoyed our tour of the Acropolis with a great guide, who was very knowledgeable about archeology and history. I was expecting a long walk up to the Acropolis, as I need a knee replacement, but it was an easy climb. I highly recommend that you have a guide, as it adds so much to visiting such a historical location. Also, we didn't have to stand in line to get tickets.
Best walking tour! My family had a wonderful, enjoyable and informative experience with Athens Walking Tours. Our guide for the Acropolis, City Tours and Acropolis Museum was very knowledgeable and amiable. She was able to answer all the questions thrown at her. I would recommend that you book with them!
Great Tour! Our tour guide was fun and very knowledgeable. He kept us in the shade as much as possible which helped with the heat.
Great way to see ancient Athens We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hour walking tour. It was a terrific way to see ancient Athens. It was informative, and nice to be in a small group.
