Diana spent a day with us showing us Athens. It was a great day, her knowledge of the various historic sites was excellent. However she also showed us many other "local" areas and we enjoyed our day immensely, feeling we had in one day managed to get a wonderful overview of the city from its many perspectives. We would thoroughly recommend Diana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you for a wonderful day too! Keep touring withTBL

We were looking for a day trip away from Athens and Diana was able to deliver a great day in Ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion. She brought the ancient sites to life. The best was the lunch following seeing the Temple of Poseidon in Sounion. We picked out our own 2 pound fish which was freshly grilled to perfection and served while watching the tide come in on the Agean Sea.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This is Greece! Keep having fun and enjoying life.
Jeff B.United States
Diana was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We felt like we got a good local view of Athens and wouldn't hesitate to use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I hope to guide you again in the future...
Dylan BulsecoUnited States
Diana gave us the best experience during our first visit to Athens! Our visit coincided with a national holiday (Labor Day, May 1st) and Diana was flexible to accommodate plan changes due to this holiday (closure of streets and attractions). After a quick tour of Plaka and the Panathenaic Stadium, we headed out of town to see the Marina of Zea then Cape Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon. It was a beautiful drive, and Diana is knowledgeable and passionate about Athens. We highly recommend Diana!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are so sweet! All the best to you, Thanks
Joni Blanding-GarciaUnited States

Steven MartinoUnited States
Diana was an amazing tour guide. We were only in Athens a short time and she did a great job showing us the sights we needed to say. See was extremely informative and gave us some information that only a true Athenian would have. I recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I love my job.
Susan JenningsUnited States
The tour cost much more than it was worth. Our airbnb host was astonished that we booked such an expensive tour when there are many available for far less. We simply drove around Athens, got out several times for photos - almost all of which we could have done on our own and walked through the Acropolis museum. A semi-private (the 3 of us plus one other couple) "hidden Athens" walking tour we did the following day was 1/3 the cost, longer, more informative, and the guide was more personable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very sorry i get such a negative comment after 30 years of positive comments!
Lynn DelmanUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pleasure guiding you. Come back to Greece!

Karen HollenbeckUnited States
Diana did an outstanding job of introducing our group to the wonders of Athens. She arranged the schedule to ensure we reached the attractions ahead of large crowds and shared tons of information. She even took us to a small restaurant for lunch that was not a typical tourist stop. At the end of the day, we felt we had seen the most important spots of Athens, yet never felt rushed. Definitely recommend her to anyone going to Athens.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you enjoyed my work and your day! Thanks a lot.

James HabererUnited States
The tour was fantastic. It exceeded my expectations. Diana went out of her way a few times to make sure I got to see what I wanted and to get the right picture shots. By following her lead we got to the Acropolis early and beat the heat and the crowd. She was fun to be with and easy to talk to
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Perfect! Thank you for choosing me and trust my country for your holidays!
Louise MichaelisUnited States
Diana was an excellent tour guide with very good English. She gave a superb city tour of Athens explaining things in detail, especially of the Acropolis and Parthenon. She even arranged to get our driver to take us to the airport the next day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy you had a good time in Greece. Thank you for coming! Be well and keep travelling, Diana
Diana a parfaitement compris ce que nous désirions: un tour guidé d'Athènes en voiture pour des personnes âgées qui avaient de la difficulté à marcher. Elle a donné des renseignements passionnants sur l'histoire de la ville et elle a su nous montrer en 4 heures l'essentiel de la ville et les points de vue les plus impressionnants. Diana est chaleureuse et enthousiaste et nous garderons, mes parents et moi, un merveilleux souvenir de cette demi-journée passée avec elle.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Je vous remerci infiniment et je vous souhaite sante et bon voyages.
Jerome OremlandUnited States

Ronnie S.United States
Diana's knowledge of Athens is incredible and the way she shared it with us was fantastic. She also was more than helpful for me as I am mobility challenged and she knew the ramps and lifts that made the visits much easier. She also took us to a wonderful, non-touristy place for lunch that was authentic, great food with a view of the Acropolis. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and getting to know her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy you had a great time. Happy holidays, Diana
Jan AnthonyUnited States
I booked a private tour of Athens with Diana from L.A. We arrived in Athens and the next morning at exactly 8:30am she rang our room. She was upbeat, punctual and very knowledgable. We had a fantastic 4 hour tour of Athens and Diana was fantastic! I left my scarf in her car and the next day we met at the Acropolis Museum and I was able to get it back from her. Thanks Diana!! Jan and Joe Anthony

Our tour with Diana in Athens was great. We were worried about the crowds and heat but she did an excellent job arranging the day so that we missed the crowds everywhere we went. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Acropolis museum where Diana's commentary really made the history come to life. Very engaging personality and we enjoyed getting to know her and asking questions about life in Athens today. Highly recommend Diana for a tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ι thank you so much! I am happy you had a great time.

Jim PeakerUnited States
Hold onto your hat - there's so much to see in Athens! Diana was able to cover many of the highlights of history, culture & legends. She's passionate about her country & it shows. Athens captivated our 9 year old & she engaged our group aged 9-70+ with ease. Diana was personable & offered a little extra treat which was very thoughtful. Athens is hard to navigate - we were glad to have a local! We wish our tour had been a bit longer as the compressed time limited full experience. Jim, Denise & Jaxon
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy that you appreciated me so much and all your family had a good time here. Happy New Year and all the best to you all. Thanks, Diana
Jim TrepagnierUnited States

Our tour with Diana was above and beyond our expectations. She met all 6 of us girls at the airport with a cheerful smile and great enthusiasm. What a fabulous way to start off our girls trip to Greece. Diana shared info about Athens on our drive into town and then made photo stops before stopping at the Acropolis and lunch at the Plaka. We all truly enjoyed her company and everyone praised her relaxed touring style. Perfect in every way....Would HIGHLY recommend Diana to future travelers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Μany thanks sweet ladies! I hope you had a great stay in Greece and see you again. All the best to all of you!

Helena CollinsDuxbury, MA, United States
We had a great day visiting Athens and Diana was the perfect guide for our large group. She was infinitely flexible and intuitive, understanding when we wanted more and when we were too hot and tired and just wanted a nice lunch! She knows the area and history intimately so she was able to get us to the Acropolis at the best time with short lines and minimal crowds. The half day tour was ideal as we then had time to ourselves for a local lunch and some market shopping. We highly recommend Diana! Thanks!
Richard TeshUnited States
Diana we very knowledgeable. We have been to Athens before but learned many new things during our tour with her.

Richard MeyerUnited States
Diana could not have been better -- we were a group of 4 adults on a half day tour. She has knowledge, personality-plus and sensitivity to needs. She was earlier than on time for the pick-up, managed difficult Athens driving and parking with ease, and we just liked her personality and commentary. Anyone looking ... You will not go wrong and you will be very pleased! Diana is a pro and interesting to boot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I love it when you have a good time here. Come back! Take care, Diana
Debra UrbanUnited States
Diana was great. Met us at the ship right on time and off we went. Four hours was just enough for us and Diana made the best of those four hours. We had requested that she drop us off at The Platka so we could leisurely shop. She did and walked around with us for a bit pointing out the best places to shop and even suggested a restaurant where we stopped for a quick lunch. We were all very happy with Diana as our tour guide. Very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy you enjoyed your short stop in Athens so much! Best wishes for a better year.
Sally HarveyUnited Kingdom
Diana was THE MOST perfect guide for our family of 4, she gave us a wonderful driven and walking tour to fit our brief time available in Athens,. She made a tour especially for us to suit the ages of our kids and the scorching heat. She was fun and VERY informative, and over and above all this she helped us with some other of our travel plans with great tips and she also recommended (and pointed out) several restaurants too (the one we chose was perfect for us) We cannot recommend Diana more highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: T H A N K Y O U S O M U C H!!!

We booked a 4-hour tour of Athens with "Tours by Locals" and we were fortunate enough to have Diana as our tour guide. She arrived at our hotel promptly and she was very personable from the very beginning. She was professional, knowledgeable and informational about the sites she took us to. Diana was very accommodating and a sheer pleasure to be with. I would highly recommend Diana as a very congenial and qualified tour guide. Thank you, Diana, you made our time in Athens memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The pleasure was mine to have you in Athens and be able to guide you. Thank you again, Diana
Diana was very nice and patient with the kids. She showed us around and explained everything very clearly. We asked her to extend the tour, and she had no problem. We had a good time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you all had a good time, specially the kids. Take care, Diana

Diana and this tour is a must. Because of possible rain, Diana was able to rearrange our activities and we saw everything and then some. Her knowledge is endless and very interesting. I will never go on a large group tour again. This is the only way to tour. Diana started as our tour guide and quickly became a friend. Thank so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are my family now too! Many kisses to all the four of you. Take care, Diana

Carol DeCandidoHong Kong
Diana was a great guide for Athens. So knowledgable of the city, history and sites to see. We spent 8- hours with her, 4-Adults & 4-teenagers, she related to all of us and made our visit to Athens very special and unforgettable. Her restaurant recommendation in the Plaka area was the best! Thank you for a wonderful day tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very pleased i fulfilled your expectations. Take good care and hope to see you again!
Dale DoudnaUnited States
Diana met us at the port and started us on our Greek adventure. She shared information on the country and the city as we drove to our first destination. Diana carefully arranged our itinerary to avoid lines when possible. This allowed us to see more things. We enjoyed the local restaurant that Diana suggested. The day we were with Diana was a day of political unrest in Greece (the Prime Minister resigned), but Diana"s knowledge and expertise made this a non-factor for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy i reached my goal!!! Take good care, Diana

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure guiding you despite the taxi strike and my long drive to reach you! I will do it again, Best regards, Diana
Vanette FontenetteUnited States
Diana is knowledgable and friendly. We happened to have our tour on a day when she was tired from a very busy schedule and rushed due to some other commitments. We appreciated Diana's warm and friendly demeanor and knowledge of Athens, but we were disappointed by frequent phone calls/interuptions (even during lunch). The other tour guides we had during our trip were more focused and attentive, but we did enjoy our time with Diana and think it was just a result of an unusually busy schedule that week.
William JonesUnited States
Diana is very knowledgeable regarding Athens, its history, and the apprpriate local places to visit. We learned a lot and spent a joyful day with her. I highly recommend enhancing your Athens, Greece visit by allowing Diana to show you around.
