WOW!!! We're we lucky today with our amazing guide, Chantel. She was absolutely fantastic. We learned so much from her about Greek history, culture, and current ways of light. Chantel is a very delightful person. She more than met our expectations on our tour of Athens. You would be very lucky to be able to reserve a tour with her.
