What people are saying about Akadimia

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!!!!!

My son and I were absolutely delighted with this unusual experience with an exceptionally kind and professional guide. Valuable advice and explanations, a guide who adapted to our small group…. I really recommend this adventure!!! Many thanks again to Maroussa for her welcome and these rich moments shared together;) Unforgettable memories Jane

Very good experience, the guide Michèle (her French first name) is very kind and explains in an enlightened way throughout the visit. We were two French in a group of twenty English, after an hour between English and French, we "allowed" him to do the visit in English being at least bilingual. It went very well.

It was great, the guide was very knowledge and took things at a great pace. Even through the busy crowds she stopped to allow everyone to catchup and ensure she had the whole group around. It was a tough job for sure.

Great half day tour around Athens with a very knowledgeable guide. Bus tour around the city followed by an informative visit to the acropolis. Definitely worth the money.
