A Recent Review of this tour

Nota was wonderful. She did a fantastic job of describing the historical periods of Athens to start the tour. She added a lot of color and detail to those periods utilizing the pieces in the museum and the temples and structures on the Acropolis, as well as her knowledge of Greek history and mythology. She was great with our teenage kids, who had fun discussing mythology with her. She is engaging and has a casual way about her that makes conversation easy. We highly recommend her.
