Acropolis with a difference

Christos was a very experienced city guide. We met him at a small café that was close to the Acropolis Museum. There was the first information for us. Then it went on to the Acropolis. We were lucky - the day was free and the queue was limited. Christos skilfully linked the past with the present. He had a lot of information for us that he had prepared perfectly in German. The places where we stopped at the Acropolis were very well chosen. Further questions were also answered comprehensively. After the Acropolis visit there was a fantastic ice cream lemonade and a small city tour of Athens. It was very informative and pleasant hours that we were allowed to spend with Christos. Thank you!

We were in a small group in Athens at the beginning of May and Christos' guided tour of the Acropolis and Old Town was great. He picked us up at the hotel and also bought the tickets before the tour. In addition to a lot of historical information, there were also comments on recent events.

Great and very interesting tour.

A very knowledgeable guide who not only knew a lot about the individual sights, but also knew the historical context. This made it a very interesting tour. What I also found great was that he responded to our needs and did not use scheme F. We recommend. Thank you Christos!
