Having booked two tours with Key Tour's we have nothing but positive experiences with them. We read the poor reviews which are greatly outnumbered by the positive and can understand why some people may be disappointed but hey if you want door to door personal touring pay twice or three times more and hire a private car or mini bus and personal driver. Getting around Athens is hard work, traffic can be crazy and the streets hardly designed for coaches when built 1000 years ago! We were collected from our hotel perfectly on time both trips, had modern air conditioned coaches with safe and patient drivers, and our guide Marrianna was simply delightful... Courteous, passionate, a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful hostess under the circumstances.... Keeping in mind the divergent group, many different age groups and languages, Athens traffic and pick up locations and how busy all the destination attractions get these guys were great.... And can be recommended without hesitation!

Wenn man Athen kennen lernen will, gehört diese Tour unbedingt dazu. Es wurden die bekanntesten Sehenswürdigkeiten gezeigt und erklärt. Die Zeit zur Besichtigung der Akropolis war ausreichend. Die Erklärungen in englischer Sprache waren sehr umfangreich und für mich etwas zu schnell. Das Akropolismuseum bot die Ergänzung zu den gesehenen Bauwerken, die aufwendig restauriert werden.
