A Recent Review of this tour

Seeing the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum with Ioanna was such a wonderful experience. We had been to the sites before but we got so much more out of our visit because of her knowledge and her incredible ability to convey the history. Ioanna even got our tickets ahead of time do that we wouldn't have to wait in the long line. Cannot recommend highly enough—make sure that when you visit Athens you book a tour with Ioanna!
