A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great day with Nektarios. He was so considerate of us and made sure we always had water on this very hot day. He is very knowledgeable about Athens and also very warm and friendly. There is so much to see in the city and he helped us see and learn about as much as could. He also took us to an authentic Greek restaurant for lunch which was one of the highlights of our entire trip. I would definitely recommend him to show you around Athens!
