    We had a four hours before our flight and decided to use it for this tour. It was just two of us and the tour guide. It was nice and educational. She was knowledgeable enough. She walked us through some streets we did not visit before. And I guess because of the size of our group we were done in 2.5 hours. We visit museum and synagogue. The thing I don't like is that the description of the tour is saying that the museum is optional. Well, nobody asked us. She brought us to the museum and told us to pay the entrance fees (6 euros per person)... It was interesting enough so I would not complain about this. Just stating the fact.Also do not expect much of the history as it pretty much covers only last 150 or so years.Still, I am glad we did it even it was less than we expected. Would recommend just for the nice walk through the small city streets. A+

    This was interesting, but definitely not too informative. We went to the Jewish museum, which I honestly could have done on my own. The most interesting part of the tour was less Jewish, but more getting a tour of Athens and learning about the different neighborhoods. We did go to the synagogue, which you definitely need to go with someone to. So overall as a tour, it was good. As a Jewish tour, it was ok.

    Really interesting tour with Elena who had excellent knowledge of her subject. Good to have an opportunity to visit sites not normally on the tourist circuit!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it was well organised and gave a background of the Jewish community of Athens and Greece. The walk was not long, but there was much of interest, preserved mainly in the museum and the synagogue. I was also made aware of the challenges facing the community. For me this was a great introduction to the community that I would then spend Shabbat with.
