My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Panos! Panos is knowledgeable, energetic, kind, patient and fun to be with. He clearly loves his city and its history and treasures, and his profession as a licensed guide. Panos speaks perfect English (without an accent), a big plus for us! It was a delight to have him as our guide, and our only regret was that he wasn't able to accept our offer to take him to lunch after the tour had ended.
