    Great guide and good tour! Would recommend to friends and family. Very knowledgeable guide who took us to all the great spots.

    Betti was a great guide and kept us moving, great to point out the key aspects and the changes that had occurred over time. I really appreciated the insight into the architecture styles (ionic and doric for instance) and also the way the visit to the Acropolis and then the museum brought it all together. It was lovely to finish in the museum where we were able to get a great late lunch with views of the acropolis.

    Cannot recommend these tours enough! Wonderfully paced, interestingly presented, and most of all, very fun.

    Our tour of the Acropolis and the Greek Agora was a wonderful experience! Our guide was Betty, and she was both friendly and informative. We booked a private tour so we could go at our own pace and ask questions, and Betty catered to our needs and answered every question expertly. Organizing the tour was just as easy, with Emma from WarmPenguin responding quickly and efficiently. We booked our first tour through TripAdvisor since we didn't know the company, but afterward we booked directly with WarmPenguin for additional tours. We highly recommend both Betty and WarmPenguin to anyone visiting Athens!

    Our tour guide was amazing! Knowledgeable and personable - you could tell she loved Greece and enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the Acropolis and the museum with her clients. Always great to have someone who is passionate and it was obvious to see it wasn't just a job for her. Well done!
