A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour of the Ancient Agora and Acropolis with Ioanna K. was wonderful. She answered all of our many questions and we left the tour with a better understanding of how the city was arranged and how it developed going back many centuries. A tour of this quality is a must to fully understand the antiquities that abound in the beautiful city of Athens.
