I customized a half-day itinerary for four of us--and Kelly provided a great tour of both of my chosen venues: Athens Archaeological Museum & the Temple of Hephaestus in the Agora, even though they're at some distance from each other. She's a genuine historical/cultural/arts expert--and efficiently whisked us to many fascinating exhibits with her well-organized chronological plan. It was like taking a class in ancient Hellenic history--with lots of artifacts (and the beautiful temple, in great condition).
