We stopped at two wineries, Mylonas and Papagiannakos, and they were both very good, with great wines and nice people. We particularly enjoyed Papagiannakos, and ended up buying some of their wine to take back to our hotel. The sommelier, Stefanos, was very generous with his time, his knowledge, and his good humour, and that all made for a very enjoyable tour and tasting. Lunch by the seaside was nice too, and we got to know our tour guide (Spyros) better... he gave us a recommendation for a wine bar in Athens (Oinoscent) which we enjoyed visiting as well, and followed up by sending us more information about Greek wine once we were home. This tour was top notch.
One cannot visit Athens and NOT go on a tour of the Acropolis. We had a really fun time exploring, and our guide Alexia was so nice and knowledgeable... we really appreciated her explanations and the things she was pointing out to us, not just on the site but what we could see from the top. She also gave us some recommendations for other things to do in the city, and was interested in learning about us, which was above and beyond what we expected. The museum was really interesting, but the walk up to and around the Acropolis itself is truly amazing. If you only want to do one organized tour in Athens, make it this one.
Our guide George was excellent and ensured we had a wonderful day! All equipment was safe and clean according to government guidelines. You do not need any Kayaking experience before going on this trip as all is explained by a qualified guide. Dry bags can be provided on previous request and flip flops are fine for the activity. Sunset at Poseidon’s temple: priceless. Dinner was on the beach, almost with our feet in the water!
We joined a tour of the acropolis with our three children (ages 10 - 13) as we thought we would get more out of it - and that was definitely true. Our guide gave us a really clear and comprehensive explanation of the history of Athens and the building of the acropolis complex which the children really enjoyed and which helped us make sense of what we saw during our Athens trip.
The tour was very enjoyable and provided a good insight into some of the best known historical monuments and sights of Athens. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody and especially to those who are in Athens for the first time. As an added benefit, one gets to taste a local ice cream.
