What people are saying about Erechtheion

Our excursion to Corinth and Athens was fantastic. Our driver Odysseus was exceptional. The knowledge of Athens and Corinth was phenomenal. We learned so much from him while driving to our tour sights!!!! Odysseus even stopped and let me go into a Starbucks in Athens (which was not apart of the tour. But he did so because we told him Starbucks was my favorite). All in all, Odysseus went above and beyond to ensure our experience was enjoyable and memorable! This Tour and our tour guide was AMAZING!!!!!

Fabulous experience! I recommend it to everyone who goes to Athens. Our guide spoke Spanish and English and spoke non-stop for 10 hours. The tour is super organized and you never get bored. First of all we go to the Acropolis, then highlights of the city, museum of the acropolis, typical lunch in a restaurant, and in the afternoon visit to the temple of Poseidon in Cape sounion. Fabulous day thanks to all of it

Our guide was a nice guide with a lot of knowledge about the mythology of Athens and the surrounding area. We have seen all the sights and were actually short of time because we lingered too long at the Acropolis.

Great tour with lot of history. Very knowledgeable guides, everything well organized. Cap Sounion is 1.5 hours by bus so it is questionable if it is worth spending the time.

Exactly what I wanted. With a guide who perfectly masters the site, the timing, the audience... And knowing how to carry you back a few millennia.
