    This tour was very interesting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and she answered all of our questions. A number of large tour groups were there from cruise ships at the same time as our tour which made for a very crowded walk up to the Parthenon. However, our tour guide found an alternate path back down which was perfect!
