    Despina was super fantastic and informative!! It was a great way to see all the highlights if you’re time poor.

    Our tour began at the metro station. Our guide was an archeology student and very knowledgeable. In the station we saw artifacts discovered during the station’s construction. From there to the government house with a commentary on Greek history. We saw the Temple of Zeus, Hadrian’s gate and, after a rest stop, the Acropolis. For those who don’t know Athens or a lot about Greek history, one of the foundations of Western civilization, the tour was excellent and informative.

    Artemis was a wonderful guide!!! She made the tour funny, informative and so much fun! I am so glad that she was my guide, I absolutely recommend this tour!

    I am a fan of walking tours. I choose this one because we did not have time for a full day tour, but wanted a guide to help us better understand the Acropolis and a few other smaller locations. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Having them purchase the tickets in advance and then sell them to you at the beginning of the tour was great, because you then do not have to wait in the long ticket lines at the attractions. Even though it was very hot, the guide did a good job of managing the pace, and location of stops to give us shade and a moment to rest as we walked through Athens , and then up the hill to the Acropolis. Very glad we chose this tour.
