Diana was outstanding. We meet outside of our cruise ship terminal where she picked us up. The tour was great and we had a excellent lunch at a local restaurant. Our group of four could not say enough good things about this tour and guide.

Diana was punctual and very accommodating to our schedule as was her driver. She is very knowledgeable of Greek history and gave us just the right amount of information without overwhelming us. I highly recommend her.

Diana did a wonderful job describing the sites of Athens. She was knowledgeable, engaging and accommodated the slower pace of one member of our group. We also enjoyed reading the booklets on Ancient Greece she gave to us, complete with pictures she had taken. Thank you Diana! Jean, Keith, Matt and Irene

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ι thank you for appreciating me! Have a great time in Greece.

Diana filled in for our scheduled guide & was extremely flexible conducting the 4 hr Athens tour late in the day for the 6 of us. She was knowledgeable, polite, & had acceptable English. Some things distracted from the tour quality however. She seemed to be on her phone a lot; she bought and ate something during the tour, and she often "allowed" the group to separate - ultimately resulting in missed dialog and a rushed and short timeframe on the Acropolis. That said, she did complete the tour on time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you recognized i was a good tour guide! Thank you

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very sorry that I read your reply now and my voice was not loud enough apparently for you. If you have asked me to sit between you, there would have been no problem i guess. And i could have answered any question you wanted me to as i love my job and after 32 yrs i am booked every day. The fee of the bus is the cheapest i get in the market. Sorry, Diana

Whilst Diana was quite knowledgeable and gave us additional insight into the Greek culture and the history of the Acropolis I feel that we could have easily done this tour ourselves. She was very punctual but the car we were transported in was old , small and with no air conditioning in the middle of summer . She didn't exhibit any passion or interest in her subject matter and the cost of the tour was very expensive for four of us , overall very disappointing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very sorry for that! I explained to you the last minute problem with my car and if you were so uncomfortable though i asked you, I would have ordered a van . It is my first time after 32 yrs of work that i get such a comment!!

Excellent ! Provided explanations along the way. We arrived before the tour buses started to come in, and went directly to the archeological site to get oriented for what was to be admired in the Museum. She explained everything as we ascended the "Sacred Way" culminating in the Theater. Then we went to the Museum and marveled at the well displayed vitrines that are organized in chronological order, until we reached the " piece de resistance" the bronce Charioteer, well worth the visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Guiding 2 stars was not easy! Thank YOU!

Most knowledgeable, and cordial. Very informative , provided an understandable narrative that involved us in the history of the monuments visited especially the Parthenon.I am a profesor of architecture and she taught me a few thing, while my 16 year old godson was mesmerized by her descriptions of the historical events and developments. Highly recommended. Jaime PR

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I learned as much as you did from you and it was an honor to guide you both. I am looking forward for our trip to Delfi. See you soon, Thanks, Diana

Diana was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to accommodate our fear of driving into Athens. She met us at a Metro station outside of the city. We appreciated her willingness to change her normal routine. Diana quickly navigated Athens, taking us to the highest hill to view the city and the Acropolis, to the changing of the guards, the Acropolis Museum, and the Parthenon. We had to stand in very few lines due to her contacts. We ended the day at Gods Restaurant. A very good day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to guide you all. Thanks a lot!

We loved our tour with Diana. She adjusted the tour well for our 13 year old, giving us the right amount of information and keeping everything interesting and engaging. Diana is very knowledgable, easy to spend the day with, and low key.

Diana did a 5 star out of 5 star job. Her tour was properly paced and she gave the historical perspective first and then took us (21 of us) up to the Acropolis. It was great that she stared in the Museum first to explain all of the history and rennovation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for appreciating my efforts! See you soon, Diana

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.

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
