“Una excursión llena de experiencias”

Nos gustó mucho todo el recorrido por el Acrópolis y la ciudad de Atenas. Eran muchas cosas llenas de historia y la guía tenía muchísimo conocimiento sobre todo lo que enseñaba/explicaba. Sólo recomendaríamos hacer las explicaciones delante de cada sitio in situ y dedicando un cierto tiempo a cada cosa para poder apreciarlo mejor mientras escuchas las explicaciones.

“Good introduction to Athens”

We met the bus at the Key Tours office near the Royal Olympic Hotel. Clear instructions from office staff. On bus it took a while to sort out passengers but soon on the road. City tour was informative, with quick stop at the Olympic stadium. Bus dropped us at Acropolis entry. Guide got our tickets, saving the 200 long queue. Still another queue to get through turnstiles, then up to the top with the thousands in the crowd. Great views of the Parthenon and other buildings while guide told the history. Met at the exit, walked to the Acropolis museum. Saved queuing again. Interesting tour. Well done.

“Wonderful tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate!”

The tour was excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. He answered all questions. He was very passionate about the history. His passion for history was really helpful in the museum where we were directed to certain pieces. The museum would have be overwhelming and we would have missed a lot of information if we hadn't done the tour.
