Our guide Joanna made our trip so much more interesting. All the details of the stories behind the decoration and buildings made the scenery come to live. Our 4 teenage children have been fascinated during the 3 hours. This made the trip to Athens a success and stimulated the interest during the remainder of our round trip in the Peloponnesus. Highly recommended and worth the money!
