What people are saying about Temple of Olympian Zeus, Athens

Awesome visit thanks to our guide Emmanouil !!!

We were the two Frenchmen of a group of around thirty English-speaking people. Our guide Emmanouil commented on the visit to the Acropolis, the bus tour and the visit to the Acropolis museum in English and French, even though there were only two of us. Emmanouil was very available, patient, precise in his comments. We are very delighted by the beauty of what we visited but also by the rich explanations of our so nice guide. We recommend without any hesitation.

Fabulous experience! I recommend it to everyone who goes to Athens. Our guide spoke Spanish and English and spoke non-stop for 10 hours. The tour is super organized and you never get bored. First of all we go to the Acropolis, then highlights of the city, museum of the acropolis, typical lunch in a restaurant, and in the afternoon visit to the temple of Poseidon in Cape sounion. Fabulous day thanks to all of it

Truly dubious organization from the hotel, there are 1 billion groups, we do not know which bus to board, who is our guide, etc. But once this ordeal has been overcome the guide has been really cool , she made the effort to translate everything into French when we were only 2 French in a group of 40 Americans, thank you to her!

Very interesting

Our guide Dimitria was very generous and took the time to explain everything to us, however, in our group, we were only 2 French-speaking Belgians allowed from the English but Dimitria did not leave us any ribs and took the time for us. We thank him and his French is great.

Great tour with lot of history. Very knowledgeable guides, everything well organized. Cap Sounion is 1.5 hours by bus so it is questionable if it is worth spending the time.
