Being a former English teacher, the guide had impeccable English and was very knowledgeable about the sites. She met us at the port as requested and worked with us in planning our 8 hour tour. She knew several ways to get around the lines at the Acropolis and led us to an excellent Greek restaurant in the Plaka area. We saw all the sites that we had planned.

1 On the description it says bottle water is included, so we didn't prepare our own. However the driver didn't bring us any so we ended up buying 3 euro a bottle water. 2 The driver just dropped us off and didn't go with us for visits. We got lost couple of times while the time is very precious as a shore excursion from cruise. It actually served just like a taxi.

If you are traveling with a group of 10 or more this is perfect! They were waiting for our party of 14 right at the port with a sign with our name! Our driver and guide spoke very good English and explained all the historical points of the trip. We had ample time to get off at our leisure and take photos and explore. The motor coach was very comfortable and professional - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
