    Our excursion to Corinth and Athens was fantastic. Our driver Odysseus was exceptional. The knowledge of Athens and Corinth was phenomenal. We learned so much from him while driving to our tour sights!!!! Odysseus even stopped and let me go into a Starbucks in Athens (which was not apart of the tour. But he did so because we told him Starbucks was my favorite). All in all, Odysseus went above and beyond to ensure our experience was enjoyable and memorable! This Tour and our tour guide was AMAZING!!!!!

This tour was canceled the day before because we could not have a French speaking guide. In exchange, we took the street art tour with Maroussa. AWESOME. Maroussa is adorable and knows her subject inside out. She lived in Belgium for 20 years before returning to the land of her ancestors. We had a great time with her in the trendy areas of Athens. We recommend this street art tour with Maroussa. ONLY HAPPINESS

It was an amazing day tour. Great information and good insight to local traditions. Our tour guide pointed out and drove to multiple locations around Athens, and Corinth. We had a group of six and had plenty of comfort during the drives. The tickets to enter are not included but only a few stops require to pay access fee. Great day all together, big thanks to Odysseus our guide!

What an excellent experience this tour of Athens away from the usual places, in the heart of the "real" city ... Ariadni, our guide, made us discover many neighborhoods, explaining their history. It's really a very good experience ... Thanks again to Ariadni for her listening and her love for a country which is not hers but which has become ...

Our guide Vania was great .... We were able to visit neighborhoods that we would not have thought of visiting without this outing. We learned the habits and customs of the Athenians nowadays in short to recommend without moderation
