Key to my Greece Tour

The guides on both my tours, Athens half day and All day Delphi Tour, were super guides. Well informed, polite, engaging and patient. The lady guide for the Delphi tour was very knowledgeable.

It was a great tour and would recommend to anyone visiting Athens. The tour guide was great and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The first half of the tour is around the city in a bus and get to see the lay of the land. Because of this, I would recommend this tour earlier on in your stay. The second half of the tour was the actual Acropolis which is amazing and until you go, the picture do no do it justice. After the tour most people would do the Acropolis museum but we opted to skip it because we wanted to explore some of the other ruins around the acropolis which is where our tour ended. I would recommend sitting in the front right side of the bus if possible.

"El paseo en bus correcto y la visita al Acropolis y al Museo muy bien." La guía muy amena y sus explicaciones muy interesantes para comprender la historia de los monumentos que se visitan y disfrutar visitando el fantástico Museo del Acrópolis. Muy bien lo recomendaría sin duda.
