“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.

The overall tour was good. The tour guide was knowledgeable and we did learn a lot. I would of rated the tour higher with the exception of two occurrences 1) we had to wait and switch a bus in the beginning of the tour which gave us a late start e.g., 8:45am. 2) Our tour only lasted 2 hours (tour guide concluded at 10:45am). I tour was advertised as a half day tour.

We went on the half day afternoon tour to Caps Sounio from Central Athens. The tour visits a beautiful and interesting location travelling through pleasant scenery once outside the city. The guide was informative the coach comfortable and the arrangements worked well. Oh and the entrance fee is included in the price of the tour. The site is an interesting archaeological site in beautiful scenery and the temple was built in honour of Poseidon All in all a good value trip with a reputable operator and therefore recommended.

This tour was fantastic! The guide was engaging and was clearly very passionate about the Greek history, museums and their works. My boyfriend and I attended this tour; although I had a little prior knowledge of some of the works etc as I have studied art and Greek history, he had none, but we both felt the tour was inclusive of everyone, no matter how much you know about art or history! Without the tour, we wouldn't have experienced nearly as much of the museums. We learnt so much, and were amazed at the amount of information our guide remembered! Worth every penny.

This tour was an excellent half-day tour of all the main attractions at Athens. Anastasia was a fabulous guide that gave us a wealth of information along the way. Absolutely superb. Worth the money!
