Alex was an incredible tour guide--super engaging and knowledgeable, and was able to answer any questions anyone had. We unfortunately had very cold snowy/rainy/windy weather, but he had a great attitude and kept the spirits up. At the meeting point in the morning, we were able to purchase the combo entry ticket for 30 euros a piece to get access to several of the sites that we visited over the tour (and a couple that we were then able to visit the next day on our own). Definitely a great way to see a lot of the sites in the city and get some helpful background and history (otherwise we would've just been wandering aimlessly around not having any appreciation of what we were looking at). We certainly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to others who are experiencing Athens for the first time!

I enjoyed this tour immensely. I thought 4 hours may feel quite long but time flies when your having fun. I enjoyed hearing all the different stories of Greek mythology. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the tour went at a nice pace with time given to look around ourselves too and opportunities to rest

Our guide was knowledgeable, engaging, and funny. This was a great way to see Athens and learn some mythology in addition to history. The headsets worked wonderfully, so we could hear her well even in a crowded area.

Guide was very knowledgeable, spoke very good english, was funny, and entertaining, would definitely recommend

Costas was a great guide. Very knowledgeable. Answered questions well. Pacing of tour was great.
