A Recent Review of this tour

Christos was a very informative guide - he took us to where the first Olympic games were held - I got some good photos walking around and we also got to see the museum which was very interesting - we could have done with more time there as there was so much to see and explore. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Will definitely book with Tours by Locals again. Martinique from Cape Town, South Africa.
