A Recent Review of this tour

Ours was a complicated tour: Six people who'd just got off a 12-day cruise with tons of luggage We asked for a highlights tour of Athens and a traditional Tacerna lunch, all in five hours. Demitris delivered. Not only was he prompt, he was personable and proved knowledgeable of the city, its history and culture. Oh, and let me add patient. He answered scores and scores of questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Athens, thanks to Dimitris. We'd highly recommend him.
