Danae was an amazing tour guide. The ancient sights in Athens came alive through her stories of mythology and history. And her love of her city was evident. I highly recommend the walking tour. We were able to see all the sights and enjoy a coffee break without dealing with Athens traffic. It felt more Greek to walk through the city!!! Thank you Danae for a great afternoon!!! And for recommending dinner options!!!
