Maria was FABULOUS as our guide. She met us at our hotel and catered our walking tour to what we wished to see! We saw the highlights around town and loved the Acropolis. She was very knowledgeable about the history and taught us a lot. We loved sitting outside at the quaint coffee shop, and tasting some authentic greek foods in the square. Highly recommend this tour with Maria as your guide.

It was a very informative and relaxing tour. Our tour guide was very much accommodating to what food, shops, and stops we wanted to make during our time together. Definitely worth the time and money to have a local show us Acropolis.
Acropolis and Food Tasting Tour

Our guide, Vicki, was excellent. She handled a last minute issue professionally, imparted just the right amount of knowledge so not to overwhelm us, and planned delicious and ample food tastings. We enjoyed the entire Acropolis and food tasting tour!

Thank you for choosing us as part of your stay in Athens. You were great guests yourselves! Thank you very much for your review! Yours Sincerely Vicky
Wonderful guided family experience

For our first time in Athens we booked this tour because it had the tour plus some time in the neighborhoods close by with a local who knew the foods and places to try. Maria, our tour guide, was an extremely knowledgeable host about both the history of the Acropolis and the area. Very friendly with lots of helpful tips about where to shop and not and why. She picked out a great place for coffee and dessert and a great lunch spot too. You learn so much more than trying to read the plaques or a book about the place. Also very good at taking the important family photos.

This was an excellent tour

We were very happy with our tour guide, Demetrius. He was knowledgeable, fun, easy to talk with, and willing to answer all of our questions. We highly recommend this tour!
Extremely knowledgable and fun!

Our tour was amazing! Our guide was extremely friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the city and the Acropolis. We loved every minute of the tour and having a private tour was extra special for our honeymoon. The food tour portion in Plaka was also fantastic. We were a bit stuffed because we didn't know that we'd get to try such large portions of so many items, but all the food was definitely worth it. I also fell in love with Greek coffee! So delicious. We would highly recommend this company and tour.

This was a highlight of our trip to Athens and furthermore to Greece. We are all about having an authentic experience, something that doesn't feel touristy but rather a more local experience and that is exactly what Marina gave us! It was a private tour with just us 2 and she is full of an immense amount of knowledge about the Acropolis, the city and she took us to her local spots for the food tour portion so we got a completely authentic experience. She was also so kind and patient, taking pictures of us and knew all the good spots to do so. I can't recommend this tour enough! If we go back we will specifically look up other tours she does as she was that amazing! Thank you Marina- we'll be back!

Wir hatten Christina als Reiseleiterin. Wir lernten viel über die griechische Geschichte. Die Tour war sehr entspannt und schön. Die Erklärungen waren ausgewogen und erreichten alle Teilnehmer unserer Kleingruppe. Bei der anschließenden Foodtour wählte sie 4 schöne Ziele aus. Sehr zu empfehlen! Dr. Rainer Sassmann.
