    Absolutely amazing Spanish tour guide Anastasia !! She was super informative and patient when above and beyond to provide us with all the history Athens has and also walked us over to many of the tourist sections even after the tour was over. Absolutely fell in love with Athens even more thanks to her. I booked several tours while on my stay and nothing compares to this one by far the best one! Thank you Anastasia my family and I have been talking about you ever since!

    Good tour. You get what you book. 3-4 sightseeing mostly from the bus and stops at the stadium and the Acropolis which is a must. The guide Elena was very knowledgable and always informing us about the history of Athens. Recommended if you are running out of time and looking for a quick tour with a knowledgable guide.

    This tour was by far the best one from the three we booked through Getyourguide.com. (0 rating for Istanbul’s Ottoman Wonders with Topkapi, 3 stars for Istanbul’sByzantine with Blue Mosque and 5 stars for this one). Our guide, George Rostandis, an archeologist, was very professional, and very well informed about the sites of the tour. As planned we were picked up at our hotel by a van and did a tour of the city which gave us an insight into today's Greece and the Greek people. We ended the tour with the Temple of Olympian Zeus and finally the gem, the Acropolis. We greatly enjoyed every moment of the tour which was significantly enhanced by the knowledge of our tour guide.
