A terrific day made possible by our guide Kelly, friendly, professional and so full of energy. We saw all the sights we wanted to see on our day tour and Kelly was an expert with the history, mythology and modern day context. A real pleasure to get to understand the balance of ancient and modern Athens and Greece. Kelly knew all the best locations for that perfect photograph, to record our visit perfectly. As a group of 2 we felt very well looked after and our safety was never compromised. Thank you Kelly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I want to thank you verymuch and wish to see you in Athens again. Kelly

Kelly was our guide and did an excellent job. I'd give her five stars. She had a very thorough knowledge of all that we went to see, and we enjoyed the book that she cowrote as well. She did an excellent job. Keith B

We had a fantastic walking tour with Kelly of the Agora, Acropolis and Acropolis museum. We have used Tours by Locals before, and Kelly was a terrific guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, and managed a long walking tour very efficiently allowing us to spend extra time wherever we wished. She is also very personable and friendly, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much I also enjoyed beeing your guide. Wish you all the best and maybe see you again i n Athens. Kelly k

We were looking for a day trip away from Athens and Kelly delivered a fantastic day to Delphi. She picked us up from our hotel and began narrating the Greek myths and teachings of Delphi which was the most important site of worship of the god Apollo. All of the ancient sites came to life with Kelly's words. After our visit we stopped for a local lunch. The simple meal of Greek specialties was served under a shaded tree overlooking the sea. We will always remember this fantastic day with Kelly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I want to thank you for your love about my country and hope to see you again in a new trip to Greece.!!!

Toured Athens with Kelly & driver Stephano, both were exceptionally pleasant and knowledgeable hosts. Our group of 5 completed the full day tour on Nov.18th, 2017. We had 2 senior ladies in our group with limited mobility and Kelly did a fantastic job of customizing the tour to keep both the more active, and the more limited part of our group happy. We benefited from Kelly planning ahead to assure wheelchairs were available, her extensive historical knowledge, and thorough museum tour. Excellent hosts!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I want to thank you one more time and wish all the best to all of you.I realy feel proud you all enjoyed your visit. My regards for a happy new Year.

Terrific Tour! Kelly is very knowledgeable and very passionate about Athens and all it's history. We had a wonderful time learning not only about the Acropolis but the lifestyle and culture of Greece. Kelly took us to a great restaurant for lunch. She was engaging, fun, proud of her heritage. A Must tour in Athens.

Samuel CrawfordUnited States
Kelly gave our party of 6 a masterful tour of The Acropolis and its museum and the surrounding Plaka. Her description of past Greek history and the current Greek "spirit" in 4 hours was more interesting, humorous and insightful than most books I had read on the subject. She worked very hard for us, asking about our comfort and asking what we wanted to do and know. After the tour, she guided us to a taverna and cafe of my choice that I never would have found. A charming, wonderful guide....
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You made feel so proud I want to tgank you very much.I hope to see you again and thank you for loving my country.We need you. Kelly k

Our four-hour tour of Athens led by Kelly K was excellent. A highlight was the new Acropolis Museum which has a reconstruction of the Parthenon including many original pieces of the sculptures. Kelly was a very warm and welcoming guide and was enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge of Athens and its surroundings. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. We would not hesitate to recommend Kelly's services to anyone wanting to tour Athens.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr and Mrs Sanders it was my pleasure to be your guide.Thank you very much.
Michael ClarkUnited States
We had Kelly as a guide for three days while in Athens and she did a wonderful job getting us from Athens to Delphi, Meteora, Sounion and Baroun. My husband and I were incredibly impressed with the amount of knowledge she had about all the sites. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend Kelly to others!
Jim DeupreeUnited States
Kelly was terrific! We have to been to Athens before, and learned so much more from her. It was a terrific time. We were on her cruise ship, and her car was a major advantage. Being picked up at the pier and returned there instead of having to figure out the train system or take a taxi was huge! It allowed us to just enjoy the day, and to see some important sights not in the central area. We highly recommend Kelly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr Deupree Thank you very much hope to see you again. kelly

Kelly is extremely knowledgeable about past and current Greek history and delivers the information with interesting anecdotes and in a manner that is easy to grasp and retain. She toured our family through the Acropolis area, the museum, and some other more modern areas (per our request - she is flexible). Would highly recommend her for your Athens tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mrs Tamar thank you very much for your comments. It was a pleasure to work with you☺
