Panos was a wealth of information. We had four children in our group and he made our tour fun and interactive for them and the adults. This tour was one of our best purchases were in Greece. I highly recommend with service and specifically Panos.

We cannot say enough about our trip with Panos! He has so much knowledge about Athens and it's history, which was wonderful. His passion, however, is what made our day in Athens the favorite tour out of 21 cities that we visited on this trip! He is an amazing teacher, his English is perfect and he loves his city and his job. Panos adjusted his tour to our needs and wants and made it the perfect day. We look forward to returning to Greece and meeting up with him again!
Panos is a very knowledgeable guide with great energy and patience. We were a family of 7,with 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 boys, ages 10, 8 and 5. He captured the interest of both the adults and children by tailoring his explanations to both age groups. By asking the boys direct questions, he kept them involved during both the visit to the Acropolis as well as the museum. I highly recommend Panos as a guide for all ages groups.

Panos is a gem: knowledgeable, sincere, energetic, considerate, and - most of all - passionate about his subject. He loves the history of his city, his country and ancient world, and brings it all alive in a most compelling way. He is flexible and responsive, and will give you the tour you want. I spent over 8 hours with him.
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Panos! Panos is knowledgeable, energetic, kind, patient and fun to be with. He clearly loves his city and its history and treasures, and his profession as a licensed guide. Panos speaks perfect English (without an accent), a big plus for us! It was a delight to have him as our guide, and our only regret was that he wasn't able to accept our offer to take him to lunch after the tour had ended.

Panos was one of the best guides we've ever had! Tour was 1000% worth the cost and would definitely do again! Seeing the Acropolis Museum and Site with him as a guide made the experience of Athens!

Panos was a delight to be with. He's extraordinarily well informed about Greek history, world history, current events, and was a pleasure to listen to and talk to. He was prompt, and eager to adapt to our needs and desires. Strongly recommended.

Our private,customized tour to the Peloponneese was incredible! Panos P.(guide) and Kostas (driver) created a day tour to include Lagkadia, a stop at the Corinth canal and a visit to Nafplion. Panos provided incredible information of the areas we were passing through and answered all questions we had. It was evident that he had done his homework! These two gentlemen made a great team - we had a wonderful day and saw so many amazing things! The website is very easy to use and guides are easy to contact.
Panos was an excellent guide! My friend and I took the Ancient Agora tour in Athens. We learned much from Panos, not only about the various periods of ancient Greek history and politics, but also about contemporary Greek life and culture. I am a slow walker while my friend is swift, and we have different interests. but Panos was able to tailor the walk and conversation to us both. We very highly recommend Panos.

Panos is a very knowledgeable tour guide who understand how to best adjust his pitch for the audience. We spent half a day touring major sites in Athens with our two children and Panos was able to keep their attention focused on the topics despite a scorching day. We learned a lot and truly enjoyed our experience.

Heather NiemiecUnited States
Panos was absolutely amazing! We so thouroughly enjoyed our day and learned so much from him. We will forever remember our day in Athens exploring the Acropolis!! Can't recommend this tour enough!!
Monika KrausUnited States
Panos was an amazing tour guide. We went on the "Acropolis for families: Gods and Heroes in Ancient Greece" tour. We also added an additional hour to see some additional sites. It was myself, my husband, and daughters, ages 13 and 15. Panos was very engaging and interesting. The five hours went by so fast. He taught us so much about Greek history, and made the tour very enjoyable. I learned so much in the five hours. I highly recommend Panos as a tour guide if you want an amazing day touring Greece!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Kraus, thank you so much for that wonderful morning on June 26th. I had a great time with you, the girls and your husband. I can tell you that it is me who learned so many new things from you and it was a great experience spending that morning with you, talking about the history and the culture of the ancient Greeks. I wish you all the best and I hope that we meet again sometime in the future. Panos.

Panos is an excellent tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable, animated and loves what he does. His tour paints an overall picture of Athenian history and her people without being overwhelming, and we were left amazed and with a newfound apreciation for what the early Greeks accomplished.
Ramya RamrajUnited States
We travel a lot and this is one of the most excellent tours we took . This is what Vishaka, our 10 year old who loves history has to say, "The descriptions were thorough, detailed with many stories and legends woven into the history. Our guide was friendly and asked and answered many questions that came up. I learned very interesting facts that kept me engaged in the tour while learning about the Parthenon's sad history. I loved our guide and he is by far one of the best guides I've ever experienced."
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Ramraj, Thank you for a wonderful morning in Athens. I had a magnificent time with all three of you. There are no words to describe how much I appreciate leading tours for kind, smiling and intelligent people like you. You have a lovely family and Vishaka is a jewel. People like you make me love my profession as a guide. Thank you for your kind words and I wish you a wonderful stay in Greece. All the best, Panos.
Dan GordonUnited States
The day spent with Panos was the highlight of our trip to Greece! We had unusual requests, in that we didn't want him to take us to museums and sites from antiquity; instead, we asked him to prepare a 6-hour walking tour to show us sites connected to the years since Greek independence in 1830, with a focus on contemporary issues. He did precisely that, and more. He is a good speaker (with fluent English, of course), a good listener, and a perfect tour guide. Highly, highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan and Paul, There are not enough words to express my gratitude for your kind words and for the wonderful day I spent with you. It's always a great pleasure to perform challenging tours like the one we did together and let me tell you that people like you make us, guides, love our profession. I wish both of you all the best and I really hope to see you again one day.
