This was also an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of in depth information regarding the sites we visited. We would highly recommend this tour and our guide to anyone. The museum was incredible and as I was fairly exhausted by the time we reached that part of the tour (again due to the COVID long hauler issues) our wonderful guide arranged for me to have a wheelchair throughout the museum tour. This was incredibly helpful and enabled me to enjoy the museum tour so much more.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Ellie! She was friendly. Knowledgeable. Engaging. Fun. Friendly. And just a joy to be around! She provided so much information about all the sites we visited and even sites we did not visit. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour and tour company to anyone and will use Walks again! This was a great way to start our Greek vacation! Thanks for a wonderful tour!!!

Nancy was awesome!! My friend recommended your Barcelona tour but we were unable to book it because it was not offered on the days we were in Barcelona. Ended up using your company in Athens and loved it. Would recommend it to friends.
