We are a family of 7 (age 9 - 70) and Vasillos was awaiting our arrival from our cruise, escorted us to his Mercedes, and showed us a video about the Acropolis before we arrived. He got us there quickly so we beat the crowds, and gave us just the right amount of time to explore. He gave us a guidebook and waters. We saw the Museum, Olympia stadium (both terrific!), and some beautiful city views. Our lunch at a Greek restaurant was 100% delicious + reasonable. Super friendly. Highest Rec possible!
