Anastasia is a great guide. Regrettably we had to leave part way through the museum tour as jet lag caught up with us, but a good tour.

Highly recommend

Helen is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We enjoyed all the interesting stories that she shared. There was a very rude tour guide of a small group shouted at Helen when we were in the Museum. We guessed it was because our group was big and that small group could not stand next to the statue. She shouted at Helen several times in a terrible manner. But Helen handled that very patiently and elegantly. Impressive!

Completo!

María, muy buena guía en español. Clara y asertiva en todo su relato. La visita al Acrópolis es de dos horas. 1 con guía y la otra es para fotos y poder salir (te demoras app 30 minutos en salir por la cantidad de personas) Vale la pena la visita al museo. Se entiende todo mucho más.

We booked a morning half-day Key Tour - actually 5 hours from departure time to return - which include some of inner Athens city and the Acropolis (as in the brochure). While it was probably very similar to other tours on offer, our guide Anastasia was exceptional. She had us learning a few essential Greek words - Efharisto- and provided her caste knowledge of the history and architectural wonder of the Acropolis. We happened to have a cool but sunny day for our tour and the impact of area was quite emotional. Of course, we then toured the new Acropolis Museum listening in awe to Anastasia’s history lesson on mythology and modern day reality. We then walked down the local plaza, where we had some fresh coffee and tasty apple caketo round off a very memorable day.
