A Recent Review of this tour

Had a great time with Vassilios. He efficiently covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time. The museum is a must do. Had a great lunch at a nice small local restaurant. Ask a lot of questions about Greece life - he's got some good stories. He also has a great sense of humor!
