    The guide was informative for the cape sounion and mycenae tour however i did not enjoy the city tour. There were so many people in the group it was impossible to follow and hear what the guide was saying. They should have given us a earpiece so that when the guide spoke, you can hear no matter where you are. I think it is very disappointing for the city tour. Please, spend a little more to do a segway or do a private tour.

    The tour needs to supply headphones for people to hear the tour guide more easily especially when at the top of the Acropolis and in the Acropolis Museum. Would be good to know before hand about having to place backpacks in coat check in the Acropolis Museum as well.

    Not worth it for the price.

    Martina is incredibly knowledgeable the entire trip for Cape Sounion not to mention she's easy on the eyes.

    The tour guide for the Mycenae and Epidaurus portion was also incredibly knowledgeable.

    Both tours were wonderful and I'm happy that it was so easy to book and find the hotel that I needed to meet at.

    Awesome tour!

    The tour was informative and the places visited are part and package of Athens where it doesn't seem like you have been there if you did not visit them. Do expect the road trip to take a few hours from Athens central city. The tour guide was knowledgeable and provided enough descriptions but it would be better if they had been less abrupt and more pleasant. I would assume the service may be better during less peak seasons.

    The city tour was excellent. I was disappointed in Cape Sounion. The drive there was very scenic but we spent very little time at the cape. Never having been there I did not know what to expect.Mycenea and Epidaurus were very worthwhile. The guide could have been more informative.(She did answer my questions when ask)I know it is difficult to decide how much a guide should tell about a place.
