A Recent Review of this tour

Dimitris was an excellent guide - he spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable on all of the sites that we visited. Athens traffic was terrible on the day we visited, but his local knowledge of the street system was invaluable in allowing us to see most of the sights that we wanted to see.
