Amazing informative and efficient/effective tour of the Acropolis and its museum
NancyKay_O, May 2022
Eva was outstanding in her knowledge of the Acropolis both from a historical as well as philosophical perspective which provided us with a holistic view of the Greek culture and people over several years. She was extremely accommodating as my husband does not walk a lot so she made sure we took our time walking and resting in the shade while she shared her knowledge! She knows how to really navigate the Acropolis Museum to make our tour the most informative and efficient time among so many people! Would highly recommend Eva as a tour guide- she is fantastic!

Exceptional...The best Guide ever.

This was an exceptional experience. Our tour guide, Betty, was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The whole site is overwhelming but Betty really breaks it down and explains so much. It was a pleasure to learn from her and spend the time with her. If we were going to do another tour we would have definitely booked Betty!!
Excellent experience
Glen_L, Jun 2021
Our guide was excellent. She asked us first thing what kind of tour experience we would like to have, do we like to walk fast, do we like to stop often etc... She brought the history to Athens to life. We enjoyed her company and the tour ended with her ordering authentic Greek food at a lovely restaurant in Plaka :)
Extremely well versed in history, kind professional

Betty and the team at Warm Penguin were fantastic. Betty was a veritable book of history, it was the most informative and interesting historical tour we have experienced in Europe. We highly recommend Betty, it was worth every euro!

Athens Tour
Scott_K, May 2019
We had a great tour and learned many things about Athens. The tour started early, beating all of the cruise ships which allowed our guide to show us parts of Athens that others didn't get to see. We actually got to see how the city was built up one century over the others. She did a great job keeping the information interesting for my older son who was really into the details but yet exciting enough for our other two kids who weren't into all of the historical details but more interested in the experience. I would highly recommend this guide and tour
Excursión muy...

Excursión muy interesante, nuestra guía Theoni, muy preparada y amable. Acertó en realizar primero la visita del museo y después la Acrópolis. Muy recomendable.
