Ioanna provided a wonderful service to our group of 5 people. We had a special need as my 92 year old mother was not able to climb stairs. Ioanna modified our tour plan such that she could enjoy this first two hours with the help of a driver. The remainder of our group walked the ancient sites, enjoying and learning from her expert knowledge of the ancient world. She was outgoing, patient, and generous with her time. A great way to appreciate Athens, its history and people. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! Wish you all the best!

Wonderful tour overall. I would highly recommend Ioanna and would definitely use her again if we come back to Athens.

Eugenia had to step in at last minute when my scheduled guide had an injury. She was extremely knowledgeable, energetic and nice. She spent time at the end writing down locations of places not on the itinerary that she thought would be of interest to me. I recommend Eugenia very strongly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very glad you've enjoyed the tour with Eugenia. I am going to pass the feedback information to her and I thank you in advance from her. Thank you for your understanding and I am really sorry again for the inconvenience. Hope you will enjoy your cruise.

Ioanna was the perfect guide for our day in Athens! She left us feeling educated in ancient & modern history and culture - politics, religion, mythology, architecture. She used a microphone in the van, had a driver who dropped us off & then showed up when needed, was patient with our questions, & kept us on pace for our busy day. In addition to the ruins, we enjoyed the museum, & our lovely authentic lunch break. Not only was Ioanna a great tour guide, we agreed that she would be fun to hang out with!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I had a great time with you too!
Ioanna was well organized and guided us through the 'crowds' in Athens while avoiding the long lines with precision. Her knowledge and enthusiasm of Athens and the culture and history were outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was my pleasure meeting you all.

Joanna was enthusiastic, interesting and informative. She brought the Acropolis to life with story telling and little nuances about the architecture that would have gone unnoticed. She even made dinner r3servations for us.My wife and two daughters had fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was nice meeting your family. Thank you very much.

Ioanna is a fantastic guide with exceptional English. She was very responsive to our requests in advance of the tour and completely delivered each site while navigating the crowds (and heat) with exceptional skill. Ioanna made everything come alive for our family of 6 and added surprises along the way like changing of the guard. She speaks confidently as a native Athenian. We shared a delicious, authentic meal at one of her favorite places. When you visit, choose our new friend Ioanna as your guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! What a wonderful family! It was a lovely day for me too.
Peter DoegeUnited States
Ioanna was wonderful on this tour. I had already toured the Acropolis and she was ready and able to accommodate and present an altered plan. She is extremely knowledgable about the sites visited and about Athens in general. She handled my touristy questions with grace and aplomb and made me feel at home. She gave great dining suggestions and generally acted as a local ambassador to Athens. That was exactly what I was looking for.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! It was a nice day for me too. Hope you will enjoy your days in Greece.
Martin ChinnUnited States
