We were a wee worried that 4 hours of history talk might put us to sleep and we were SO wrong! It was all the wonderful fault of our Guide, Nikos. He is a masterful story teller weaving facts of history into why things are they way they are today. We learned so much interesting stuff we began taking notes on our iPhones. The pace was perfect and Nikos always found a place in the shade for us to stand that was in the middle of everything wonderful whilst away from the sometimes throbbing crowds of tourists. He is a true pro and I would say ask for him for sure! I would come back and listen to his tales again and again...he knows every wonderful detail.

My husband and I were glad we did this tour. Four hours is not too long. Costas kept us engaged with his many stories about the Gods. We walked about 4 miles, but it didn't feel like it. There are opportunities to rest. The climb up the hill can be challenging and it's worth it. Our group was a nice size of about 18 people. It made it easy to hear. We also enjoyed chatting with the other tourists. We bought the combo ticket for entry into the sites. The only downside with the ticket is that you can't use it again to enter the sites later on. This is a great tour and we'll worth your time.

Very knowledgeable guide! This was the best tour!!! I don’t know what we would have done without her, we wouldn’t have near as much information or appreciation for what we experienced on this tour. 20,000 steps logged on this day. My husband has a difficult time walking and we had to take it slow. Our guide was great at accommodating and very courteous.

The guide (Kelly) was very good in telling the stories, which made the 4 hours pass by very quickly. I didn't want it to end. You do have to buy the entrance tickets to all the sites yourself (not included in the tour) which is 30 euros. So everything together it's almost 100 euros per person, which I think is quite expensive.

Such a fun historical tour. We saw some of the most beautiful ancient temples and buildings and learnt about the crazy stories behind them. Iffie or Effie (not sure how to spell her name) was our tour guide, she spoke amazing English and made the tour so enjoyable! I would recommend to anyone any age!
