For us this was an interesting introductory tour to Athens. The guide was very knowledgable but inevitable there were time pressures especially in the Acropolis Museum. We were able to stay on at the Museum after the tour ended and explore it more thoroughly. One niggle was that as we didn’t have individual tickets, we had to ‘persuade’ the security man at the lower level excavations, which are very interesting, to let us enter to look around. This should not have been necessary and GYG must arrange for their clients to have full individual tickets/passes for the Museum and Excavations just as we had at the Acropolis. The Acropolis Restaurant is excellent and an ideal place to have a quick lunch after the tour. Though we enjoyed it, in our view the tour is on the expensive side for a half day tour with a relatively large group.

Mathew was an amazing guide, bilingual with our tour. Very professional yet friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. I think the tour co need to alter times to include a break either for coffee or early l7ncy break. Too long without a break. But tour was fantastic value for money and interesting. Well done Mathew Linda and family,

Very happy with the tour. The pick-up bus came exactly on time. Our guide Yiouli was simply excellent (experienced, knew how to guide a group, had all the facts and good stories to tell). The early morning start meant we got to places before long queues.

I recommend this tour to anyone out there looking to full explanation about those historical sites, costa the guide tour Explained lots of things and could understand as he was explaining things in details which was amazing tour enjoyable.

This tour gave me the opportunity to walk through some of the most beautiful and interesting places in Athens and Babis my guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about his city.
