A Recent Review of this tour

Emmanuel was professional and courteous. He picked us up from the airport as planned. He was knowledgeable about Athens and the history of the area. You could tell that he loves his country and the area that he lives in. It was the best money we spent on seeing the sights on our vacation. We saw so much more than we would have been able to on our own or with a group tour, with the limited time we had. He dropped us off at the Cruise ship in plenty of time. Thank you for a wonderful experience, Emmanuel!
