Good way to see Athens

We wanted to see as much of Athens as possible without having to walk around in the heat so being driven in a bus worked great!

The Tour Guide was dis-engaging

for any trip, tour guide is the life line of the entire activity. Unfortunately in this case he lacked the engagement capability as well as present mindedness to keep the group together at all times. To me it was merely a sightseeing visit on my own.
