A Recent Review of this tour

Chantal was very personable and knowledgeable. My wife and I were very pleased with her tour. I wondered if the rate was worth it for a few short hours in Athens, but it so very much was! Anywhere I go I want to know the history and to experience the area as a local, no tourist traps! Chantal rates an A+!
