based on 4 reviews

It was my first stay in Athens, and this private tour was a fantastic way to discover the landmarks of this city. Dimitris was the perfect host, very attentive and knowledgeable. He took me comfortably from one destination to the next in his car and told me about their history and importance. The day ended with a meal in a wonderful authentic restaurant, far from the tourist areas, with delicious home-cooked food. What I particularly liked: Even though we looked at a lot, I never felt rushed or overwhelmed. Personal requests (e.g. preferences on where to go or where to stay longer) were taken care of at any time. In Athens, you can discover a lot very well on foot. However, the driving service gives a welcome rest in between places. A great experience!

The whole experience was great, booking was easy and fast, useful information available, many trip options, the WhatsApp support deserves my highest gratitude for helping me really fast and sharply.

Very good option to visit at your own pace. Clear explanations. Perhaps the speech is a bit fast but you have the option to repeat it as many times as you need. Recommended option.

Very good audio guide, with step by step instruction, interesting history & story, and useful maps.

Bought tickets online and walked straight to entrance with no waiting in line.
