It is our first time in Greece and this is bu far the best experience we had! Aristotle is such a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. Love his story telling! It is such a well timed tour as well as we avoided the crowd and we had plenty of time to take photos. Thank you Aristotle for a beautiful experience. Highly recommend this tour!

This tour was excellent! The tour guide Aristotle was incredibly knowledgeable and was a trained archeologist! I cannot recommend this tour enough. The one thing I would recommend is taking the four hour tour over the eight hour tour. The four hour tour covered all the highlights and I am not sure you could take any more information in.

This tour was awesome. We chose it because it was one of the most complete tours in Athens (Acropolis, Ancient Agoras...), and we loved it because we could understand much better the history and the myths of the city thanks to our tour guide, Marina. She, apart from being native Greek, was very knowlegeable and could answer every of our questions. She also gave us some spare time to take pictures, something that was appreciated too. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone. A 5 stars tour and a 5 stars guide.
