A Recent Review of this tour

Cannot recommend this tour enough. My husband and I had a 12 hour stop over in Athens and from the moment Emmanuel picked us up we knew we were in good hands. We spent the next 9 hours driving through Athens looking at all the beautiful ruins and learning a lot from our host. We even got to enjoy some gyros and watch the sunset over Athens before we went back to airport for our 11pm flight. Defiantly worth the money.
