    We had the most fantastic tour with Maria Anna. We spent 5 hours with her, going on a walking tour of The magical Acropolis, a city tour in a very comfortable air conditioned coach and then finally a superb tour of The Acropolis Museum. She was so knowledgable, warm and wonderful with children and adults alike. She is part of Chat Tours, who also have exemplary customer service and suggested I upgrade my walking tour to the city tour in the air conditioned coach, and to be collected from my hotel. So considerate. My daughter and I learnt so much and loved being in the small group. I cannot recommend this tour or any others by Chat tours, with Maria Anna highly enough. 10/10.
