    My guide was Natalia and she was great! I did not give her much input as to what I wanted on my tour but she was able to prepare an itinerary that showed me a great deal about Athens and some of its central neighborhoods. She showed me some of the prominent sites, including buildings, markets, parks and archeological sites, and told me of their history and importance. She also took time to tell me about Greek culture and history, particularly related to Athens. The time went by quickly and, before I knew it, the tour was over. I would recommend Natalia as a guide.

    Natalia knows a lot about the city and knows every corner and street. We saw an incredible amount in the 3 hours. And as hoped for a lot that you otherwise only see by chance as a tourist. She also provided us with good tips. We were not picked up at the hotel as requested, but she was able to explain us why and we found the agreed meeting point well.

    Our guide Paula was very nice. Picked us up at the hotel on time and asked what we wanted to do. She gave us a lot of knowledge and showed us the different places and sights very precisely. We ran a lot, but in the end it was very worth it. We have discovered a lot of new things and can find our way around better.
