We thoroughly enjoy our tour with Aristotle. He was very knowledgeable and it was obvious that he was passionate about his job. We learned so much about the Parthenon which made for a truly memorable experience for a trip if a lifetime!

Having done the sites previously, without a guide, this time we learned so much more about what we were looking at. It was certainly worth the expense (and the early morning!) to do the tour with a guide and would highly recommend it.
