This was an informative and exciting afternoon excursion. Chantel, was prompt, picking us up at the hotel to safely drive us through mad Athens traffic. Chantel was genuine and personable, sharing her life and experiences in Greece. She had a wide breadth of knowledge about the locales she took us to. Her education in agriculture and botany taught us a lot during the nature hike. Kayaking on the sea was a blast, we saw flying fish! I recommend Chantel to any traveller visiting Athens
