We were disappointed by Chantel ability as a guide. The tour that we booked included a visit of the Acropolis. In the description it was mentioned that Chantel would not accompany us but that she would provide information regarding the site. She provided very little information and gave us no material that we could take with us during the visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry to see that the tour did not live up to the expectations. I admitted my mistake (made at the beginning by not providing sufficient info prior to your visit of the Acropolis) and I apologize. I will make sure this won't happen again.
Scott BaymillerUnited States
A nice tour of the Acropolis, Roman and Greek Agora, Mars Hill, and the Plaka neighborhood. Chantel is very nice, speaks excellent English, and is willing to adjust based on our wishes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much for your review. It was a pleasure to get to know your lovely family.
Bruce ParisUnited States
Chantel was such a gracious guide for us in Athens. Very knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited, plus she went out of her way to make our tour enjoyable. She even stood in line for us while we had lunch so we had our Acopolis tickets with no wait. Meeting location was easy to get to and allowed for much of the tour to be done by foot. She even drove us back to the port to our ship. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greetings! Thanks so much for your review and rating! It was my pleasure. Wishing you all the best from Athens, Greece.
James SariUnited States
Chantel was very knowledgeable about Center Athens. She answered questions from architecture to floral. We are seniors and she kept the pace quite manageable. Chantel adjusted the tour to make best use of the time. She also made suggestions for sites to visit on our own. We would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this review! It was my pleasure spending this glorious day with you in the city of Athens! All the very best to you.

WOW!!! We're we lucky today with our amazing guide, Chantel. She was absolutely fantastic. We learned so much from her about Greek history, culture, and current ways of light. Chantel is a very delightful person. She more than met our expectations on our tour of Athens. You would be very lucky to be able to reserve a tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a million for your flattering words. It was a true pleasure getting to know 3 LOVELY persons from the state of Vermont. What a glorious day. Warm wishes from Athens!
Robyn NanceUnited States
We only had one day to visit Athens. Chantal did a wonderful job making certain we saw everything we could while providing wonderful historical information as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! Enjoy your time in Europe and hope to meet again one day. Warm Regards from Athens!
William ColpUnited States
Chantel was GREAT! She met us precisely on time and was a joy to tour with. She let us spend more time as needed and less time where we weren't interested. After lunch she gave us options based on our time available and what we had shown interest in. This was truly a tour adapted to us personally. We loved it! Chantel was very knowledgeable and took us to a wonderful location for lunch. If you don't require someone certified to take you through the antiquities, we highly recommend Chantel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thanks so much for this rating and review!!! I am really glad you liked your time in Athens. Greetings to all of you from Athens.
Salvador LopezUnited States
She picked me up at the airport and showed me a great time around the Acropolis. We had laughs and I got to enjoy a wonderful experience. It was like having a friend. She was a great tour guide that allowed flexibility and historic knowledge without the overwhelming class lecture. I took in some sites by myself to enjoy alone and soak it all in. She dropped me at my hotel after. She was GREAT!!! Thank you, Chantal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sal, Thanks so much for your kind words. Hope to see you again one day in Greece! All the very best!
Fred LewisUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Chantel. She is very knowledgable about Greek history, and also very insightful about Greek politics and economics as well. The tour was a delightful introduction to the beautiful city of Athens. I would highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the 5-star review!!! It was a true pleasure to show you Athens and I am grateful that we had more time as we had thought initially. I sure hope you had a nice 2nd day in Athens and the stunning Athens South coast. Wishing you a fabulous time in Italy too. Kindest Regards, Chantel

4 and a half out of 5. My wife and I had a very interesting tour with Chantal who was a very pleasant companion. She was not a licensed guide for the Acropolis and so could not go inside it and explain things as we went along, though able to give us some information to assist us before we went inside. David & Linda
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the review! It is clearly stated in the tour description that I do not enter the Acropolis site with you but that you will get info prior to entering. From now on I will explain even more before travellers enter the Acropolis site. Warm Regards, Chantel

Fantastic! My Mum and I spent the day with Chantel discovering Athens (our first time) and it was so much fun! She's a fantastic guide - so smart, informative and showed us many off-the-beaten track sites (little Greek island village etc) and of course we got to see the main Acropolis etc. Tour was catered to our needs - my 82 year Mum took some rest breaks and she was super accommodating and kind. Definitely recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate your kind words. Thanks once more!
Donna WoodsUnited States
We had a wonderful day! Chantel was very friendly, knowledgeable, and help out with my 87 yr old mother. She went way out of her way to get us 90 miles north of Athens and bring us home. We will use her again when we go back. Also don't forget to tip these wonderful guides for their time!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna & family. Thanks so much for your sweet words and 5 star rating. Awesome. I had a wonderful day with you as well, and I really cherish the precious moments with your mom. Hope to see you when you come back to Greece!
Lisa NeumannUnited States
Chantel was excellent! She picked us up right at our cruise terminal and drove us to all the sites. Although she was not able to go into the Acropolis with us (and we were aware of that ahead of time) it was so nice to have a personal tour of such a great city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for leaving a great review. It was my pleasure to get to know you! All the very best to all of you!
Bibi WithersUnited States
Chantel was an excellent guide; she shared her knowledge of the sites in and around the Acropolis in a clear and understandable way. And the next day she took us on her off the beaten track tour which gave us an excellent appreciation of Athens beyond the famous ancient sites. My husband and I are 'foodies' and she took us through markets, to restaurants for lunches, and to shops specializing in Greek delicacies for tastings. She read us well! A most enjoyable two days with a lovely person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this feedback! You and John were lovely travelers, we spent some very nice days together!
We had a wonderful day with Chantel. She was an excellent tour guide and in spending the day with her, we were able to gain a better understanding of the current political and economic situation in Greece and a first hand account of how the Greek population is being affected. The historical aspects of our tour were incredible of course and the opportunity to have a light lunch together in a typical taverna, accompanied by the local retsina was very special! Thank you so much Chantel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your rating and nice words!!!! I am very glad that you enjoyed all these aspects of the tour. It was my great pleasure to meet you all! Warm greetings from Greece.
Rebecca RiceUnited States
Chantel was a perfect guide for our family of eight. Because we had grandchildren she adjusted the tour to fit their needs while not sacrificing the rest of us. She always had a point of interest for even the smallest person in our group. Chantel chose a phenomenal restaurant for us and we enjoyed her company for dinner. She is the perfect professional guide!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rebecca, thank you so much for this review. The pleasure was all mine. I will never forget your wonderful family, including your 2 knowledgeable granddaughters. Also our dinner with the famous TV-chef who joined us at the table made our experience truly unique. Be well!
Beverley AmbergUnited States
We had just one day to spend in Athens, and we feel so fortunate that we got to spend it with Chantel! Before we even left home, she helped us find a reasonable hotel near all the major sights. She picked us up after breakfast and dropped us off at our ship in the afternoon. She parked her car (with all our luggage) in a protected lot and took us on a wonderful walking tour (with stops as needed!). She gave us so much great information about ancient and modern-day Athens, and she is delightful, besides!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Beverly, Thanks so much for your 5* review! You are also delightful so the pleasure was all mine. I am very glad you enjoyed your day in this breathtaking city. Warm Regards from Greece!
Ingrid KayUnited States
WE loved our day with Chantal. It was one of our best stops off our cruise.She was a fantastic guide and was wonderful with my 12 year old son. She was very efficient, full of knowledge and made our day so interesting. She picked us up by car at the port and drove into Athens and we visited amazing sites with her.We also took the metro which was a fantastic experience and and ate delicious souvlaki and greek salad at a local restaurant. I highly recommend Chantal as a professional guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a tons for this amazing review. I very enjoyed the company of you and of your adorable son. Hope to meet you again in Greece! Wishing you all the very best.
Cathryn RheinerUnited States
Chantel is an excellent guide. Her wealth of knowledge is very impressive and she really cared about ensuring that we saw everything we wanted to see, including some of interesting places most people do not go. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a great Athens overview tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thanks you so much for this fantastic review! It was a real pleasure to get to know you and spend time with you in this wonderful city. Sincerely, Chantel
Lois ThikollUnited States

a great tour for our group of ramblers from the UK and US thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a very pleasant, sunny day, with wonderful people. With the group of ramblers we discovered "hidden" Athens and walked away from the crowds.
Alan ErnstUnited States
Chantel was an ideal tour host for our party of six. Her knowledge of the geography, culture and rich history made for an enjoyable day in Athens. If ever we return to Athens we would consider our first contact to be Chantel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greetings to you wonderful people from Pennsylvania Dutch Country! Thank you very much for this great review!!! I would love to be your host next time around.
Jeffrey MarshUnited States
A great tour. Chantel knew Athens and the surrounding area very well. Her comentary on the ruins was great. Her English was very good. She also knew a lot about the local plants and how they were used for cooking.

Our tour with Chantel was like being guided by a friend or family member, she is very personal and flexible with the agenda, also a great driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your review and rating!!! I had a very good time with you too and I truly hope to meet you again. Perhaps we should discover the gorgeous Athenian Riviera next time and add in some wellness & food elements? Warm Regards from Greece to 2 wonderful people in the city of Anna:)

Mahesh NachnaniUnited Kingdom
Chantel was a great, friendly guide. She was cool and composed with sense of humour through out the warm day with 6 hours of walking. She has ability to understand your need and will only give you the information depending on your interest although she has very detailed knowledge on her subject. Her pace was according to our needs. Very professional. This was one of the best experience. Keep it up Chantel. Dr Nachnani United Kingdom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mahesh Nachnani, Thanks very much for your kind words! You are too kind. It was my great pleasure to get to know you and your lovely family. Hope to see you again some day in Greece, the birthplace of Modern Medicine :-)
Chantel guided us on a walk up and around the Acropolis. I wanted a guide to give memorable anecdotes and insights on the long history. Chantel was very friendly, knowledgeable and provided practical advice and insights about Greece. I think, however, she could add a lot more stories and anecdotes from history.
Carmela MondelloUnited States
Chantel welcomed my daughter , her BFF and myself at the port and she was so charming and lovely. We took a subway ride to Athens and she was extremely informative. We toured Athens (Acropolis and all the other sites) and she knew exactly how to keep the girls engaged. Spending the day with Chantel was like visiting with your girl friend. We had a great lunch . The day was low key but extremely well informed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your review! It was a real pleasure to spend the day with you and show you breath-taking Athens!
Michael TraversUnited Kingdom
Fantastic! We normally get official guides every year, which are good but need to give the dates of every conquest and exactly what they where wearing on the eve of battle. I can't be bothered with that. Chantelle understood our sense of humour gave us enough detail about all we asked without the need to test us at the end with the GCSE EXAM. It was like having a friend of a friend take you round the city. Very enjoyable and a great star to our visit. HIGHLY recommended. We will use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this great rating!!!!! I enjoyed showing you this breathtaking city and I will send you that GCSE EXAM by e-mail message. LOL. Hope to see you again next time in Greece!
Leslie HaasUnited States
New to Athens, this was a great way to see the Acropolis and get oriented to the city. Chantel offered advice regarding other places to visit during my brief stay. I enjoyed the pace of the tour and we had beautiful weather for January.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Leslie! It was a real pleasure meeting you and showing you Athens. Hope to see you again in Greece!
William FabianoUnited States
We really enjoyed spending the day with Chantel! She did a great job of keeping us interested and entertained, and shared her knowledge and love of the city. Great value and great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. It was my pleasure to get to know you and show you this breathtaking city! Hope you had a nice rest of your vacation in Greece.
