Very well organised Athens walking tour. Early meeting time to avoid heat and crowds. Well paced with shady stops and water-bottle refill points. Very clear and informative guide. The second part of the tour was a short walk followed by a visit to the new Acropolis museum. At the end of the tour there is a very good cafe/restaurant inside the museum and we chose to stay longer to soak up as much of this amazing site (and the excavations beneath) as time would allow.

I really liked the visit to the Acropolis & Acropolis Museum with the group. I and my husband enjoys this tour very much and it gave us a lot of information about the history of Athens.

We had a great tour with Theadora! She was very knowledgeable and made sure to give us time for photos. Wonderful tour of the Acropolis. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Transport on time, modern air conditioned coach, knowledgeable guide, decent lunch and good sights to see. Enjoyed the tour.

Wonderful and extremely interesting tour! Our guide was funny and obviously loved her job.
