    Our guide led us through the markets of Athens. She made sure we got great deals on everything we bought. If you just want to shop. This is the way to go. Not just tourist shops. Great day !!! Thanks

    Our guide Dennis provided more than a shopping tour pointing out historical facts and taking us to an area outside of standard tour path on our request.

    My mother in law, my niece & I had a Fun day shopping with Helena. She helped us navigate the shops & find great treasures. We felt safer with her and the shop owners gave us better deals.

    Much cheaper to shop here than in other Europe countries like Italy. There is an assortment of high end shops, as well as your typical market type shops. Feel free to barder with market type vendors as they are competing for business. I didn't pay asking price for anything.

    We booked the tour in order to give us an idea of the different areas in the downtown. The guide was very knowledgeable but she did not have the personality to hold the attention of most of our very small (5 people) group. I stayed close to her and leaned a great deal but the rest of our family group simply walked along.

    Oh yes, I had an enormous amount of self satisfaction going shopping. There were lovely items to purchase and the prices was right as long as you bargain for a lower price.
