Christina was great as our tour guide. She not only knew all the facts and history about the ruins but as a native Athenian she knew the local lore and side stories as well. Her information on the market places and local shops and restaurants and where to go and where not to go was right on. I recommend Christina highly for anyone traveling to Athens.
