A lovely day, Markos arrived a few minutes early, smartly presented and with an immaculate vehicle. He was able to flex the day around our preferences as we had already seen some areas. His English was colloquial and fluent . He had obvious pride in his native city and was able to explain some of the current difficulties and illustrate modern Athenian life. He had a good knowledge of history, legend and gods to underpin the development of Athens. He gave us a good sense of the sites.Lunch was fabulous.
