Our guide spoke too fast and in monotone, very boring. We left the tour and didn’t finish, we went off on our own. Waste of time and money!
The tour of Athens was good and the Acropolis is spectacular, but the tour guides speaker system did not work well, meetup instructions were very vague, and you need to be able to walk quickly to keep up with the guide. The slower walkers in our group were simply left behind. Cape Sounion is interesting but the drive is long for what there is to see.
We were extremely excited for this trip but unfortunately it was the worst experience we had as the tour guide lady, Illia, was one the most racist person we met in Greece. She was trying to guess from which country we were from and trying to humiliate by saying "Are you allowed to wear these clothes in your country (just a top and skirt). Ohh I thought you are wearing burkas in your country" (she was trying to mock). She was absolutely the most ignorant person we met in Greece and it is even a shame for Greek people to have this lady as a representative of their country. It is even surprising that the ministry of tourism of Greece even allows this kind of people to be tour guides. Additionally, Illia gave so little information, lucky we had a background on Greek architecture and history but the historical information part was a disaster. We would never ever recommend this trip as long as the tour guide, Illia, guides this tour. It is very disappointing and unfortunate.
This was a great tour!!! I learned so much about the ancient Greek culture and architecture. Getting on multiple busses in multiple locations was a bit confusing but we still enjoyed the AC bus with WiFi. We had lunch at the Plaka after the morning tour and then hopped on the bus to finish out the afternoon tour. Sounion was beautiful but a very long ride (over an hour 1 way) and the view was beautiful but it just made for a very long day. So if you do this tour, be sure you’ve had plenty of sleep because it’s a full day of fun. I loved the tour guides (Zeta and Dmitra, I think)- they were so smart, friendly, and beautiful. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes for the Acropolis-it’s very slick and I saw multiple people fall and slip on the marble.
The experience was wonderful! Vicky (sightseeing and acropolis) and Mina (cape sounion trip) we’re both fantastic and knowledgable guides. I had a wonderful time and would recommend.
We really enjoyed the trip to the Acropolis and Cape Sounion. Our tour guides did a wonderful job of keeping us on schedule and on task. I would highly recommend this tour. It was a great value for the limited time we had to spend in Athens.
The ancient ruins on the tour were quite captivating! However, the poorly working AC on the bus only exacerbated the heat index on the bus!
Great history behind Athens and our tour guides explained it very well. What an amazing experience to see. You have to book this tour!
The whole tour is great for what you pay for. Cheaper than other tours. Our tour guide Iota(her short name) made sure she didn't lose anyone.. Great experience over all. Would highly recommend this tour. Miralyn Toronto
Awesome tour both of Acropolis, and the museum with Avekios. The tour started and ended on time. Very professional and knowledgeable.
