A Recent Review of this tour

Manny was an excellent tour guide! He dropped us off at the most convenient location at the Acropolis abs had a nice, cool car waiting for us with cold water. He was very interesting to listen to and was vet knowledgeable. Many drivers told us we had the best driver in Athens!!! Manny took us to a very delicious, authentic Greek restaurant so we could have lunch. It was so easy to be picked up and dropped off from our port. Private tours are worth EVERY penny.
