Kostas was friendly, knowledgable and an excellent tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Only dropped a star because the top of the Acropolis was closed on the day of the tour and we had to return the next day...

great tour! we got lucky and my husband and I were the only two people to sign up for the tour, so we ended up getting a private tour! you get a great mix of mythology and history that helps bring the ancient city of Athens alive. wear good walking shoes, you'll do a lot! but plenty of breaks along the way, so nothing too strenuous. highly recommend this tour!

The tour was very insightful about both the history of Athens and it’s monuments, and importantly the myths that accompany that. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging, so we thoroughly enjoyed our tour - even in the chilly February weather!

My tour was at 8:30AM and Alex our tour guide was already waiting for us. He was very nice and knowledgeable. He spoke perfect English and even gave us some background on overall Greece. He answered every question and took many pictures of us. The tour lasted about 4 hour and was around $50-$60 US per person. You can do all the sight seeing by yourself but if this is your first time to Greece I highly recommend taking a tour first. Nothing beats someone explaining culture and history while seeing it with your own eyes rather than seeing it and guessing how each monument came to be. One last thing. Be prepared to walk a lot on uneven pavement/uphill/downhill. Wear comfortable shoes or you’ll be in pain later.

If you like Greek history and Greek mythology, which go hand in hand, you will love this tour. Not only do you visit all the main sites and take in the breathtakingly views, it is very informative. It is not rushed so there is ample time to take photos, ask questions and there is a couple of opportunities to take a quick break. You will have to buy a combination ticket for €30 at the temple of Zeus which allows entry into the sites on the tour. However the ticket also allows you entry into sites which are not on the tour and is valid for 2 days. The tour guide was fantastic and enthusiastic and also offered to take photos for everyone so they can all be in the pic.
