Ioanna was fantastic! It was an incredible opportunity for our students to learn about so many centuries of art and history in just two hours.
Fabulous day tour of Athens. Perfect easy going pace yet we were able to see all the major sites we wanted to. Very knowledgeable and perfect English. Very easy going and relaxed personality. Highly recommended.

Two amazingly informative and enjoyable hours with Ioanna at the National Archeological Museum left us wanting only one thing: more time with Ioanna. She is amazingly knowledgeable, articulate and entertaining. She is a natural teacher who intuits the knowledge and interest levels of her audience and is pitch perfect in meeting her clients' needs. Our first order of business when we next visit Athens will be to find opportunities for more extensive exposure to this truly outstanding guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for feedback. Hope we meet again in the future.
James StoneUnited States
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful, customized tour of Athens by Ioanna K. She is extremely knowledgeable and articulate about the various sites we visited (the base of the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, the Greek and Roman agoras, Hadrian's Library, and various modern parts of Athens. Her English is nearly perfect and her explanations energetic and clear. We have had many good tour guides over the years from Toursbylocals in the Americas and Europe and she is among the best we have had.
Patricia StoreyUnited States
Ioanna was a wonderful guide - very knowledgeable, fun to be with, and fluent in English. She planned a great itinerary which helped us to avoid the crowds, and her explanations added to our appreciation of the history of Athens and Greece. I highly recommend Ioanna!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. Hope you have a wonderful time in Santorini and Crete!
Marilyn KeelanUnited States
We enjoyed having Ioanna as our guide. We only had 1 day in Athens and she planned our day to maximize our time without overwhelming us. I was worried about climbing the Acropolis but she made it easy; knowing the least crowded pathways, stopping in shade to talk to us about the Parthenon and, before we knew it, we were at the top! She is very knowledgeable about Athens & Greece and we were happy to spend the day with her.
Linda FriedmanUnited States
Ioanna arrived at our hotel ready to share her rich history and native city with enthusiasm and tremendous knowledge. She knows her way around to experience each area of interest, always asking about what we would like, very efficiently but not overwhelming us with so much information that it gets lost in translation. Ioanna was helpful in providing us with many wonderful areas to explore on our time alone in Athens. The recommendation for souvlaki cemented our strong feelings of a phenomenal guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this rather confusing feedback. Not sure if you liked the tour or not. Thank you anyway. All the best for your family.

A licensed guide, Ioanna is the one to take you to the ancient historic sites. With encyclopedic knowledge and obvious passion for the long story of her country, she goes beyond the facts and dates to make the history come alive, and today's warm Greek culture meaningful. We particularly appreciated her guiding experience: On a crowded Acropolis, for example, she had us enter a back way and move against the flow of visitors, thus avoiding getting stuck in the thick summer crowds. She did a super job.
Mary MastrianniUnited States
Enjoyed are morning with Ioanna so much. Highly recommend going 1st thing in a.m. as crowds build early. We learned much and Ioanna was so nice to answer all our questions. She is professional, courteous, prompt and very pleasant to spend your day in Athens with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was nice meeting your wonderful family.
Craig KelloggUnited States
Excellent tour, Excellent guide - highlight of our 22 day European vacation. Our family of 6 (2 adults - kids 15, 13, 8, 8) all just loved the tour from Ioanna. We were ALL able to connect through her guiding with everything we saw. We highly recommend Ioanna to anyone at any age who is looking to see the sights in Athens and experience it with the BEST guide possible. If Ioanna is available, book her tour now! You will not regret it!
Ioanna was just a wonderful guide. She knows Greece and its history and is able to share this knowledge. She is friendly, open and full of respect for others. We spent a great morning in her company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. Enjoy your sailing adventure!
David RiordanUnited States
Ioanna was an exceptional guide. Every member of our party agrees that she should get a much higher rating than 5. She was attentive to our need as we had several age groups in our part - from 12 to 78. Her knowledge of the Acropolis and Athens was amazing and she was able to get us to all the places that we requested within the time frame of the tour. We would definitely recommend her.
Jane O.United Kingdom
Ioanna is lovely and very knowledgeable about Athens. She adapted the tour for us as my husband was suffering with the heat. So we still managed to do everything but in a shorter time. It was so good we were on a private tour and it could be adapted for our needs. At the end of the tour she made some great suggestions on how to spend our last few hours in Athens. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Renee CapriolaUnited States
Ioanna was an amazing tour guide & we would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to spend the day learning about Athens & all it has to offer. She was extremely nice, informative, & flexible for our family's needs. We learned so much about the city that day & she also gave us great recommendations for the remainder of our stay in Athens. Thank you Ioanna!!
Hester BlackburnSouth Africa
I cannot think that there is someone else who will be able to give you a better insight into ancient Athens and its archeological wonders without it feeling like work at all! She also gave us valuable insight into modern day Greece and its economical and political challenges. We were a family of 5 (teenager and two university students included) and we all LOVED Ionanna - she was punctual, very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating with a good sense of humour which is important to us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! Such a wonderful family you have!
Janet B.United States

Ioanna was a fantastic guide! We would give her 10 stars, if possible. Our entire group (5 people, ages 6 to 70) thoroughly enjoyed our day in Corinth and Athens. Ioanna was beyond a wealth of knowledge!!! There seemed to be no historical or religious question she couldn't answer. Ioanna was flexible, reliable, professional, patient, and a good communicator. We highly recommend the "Following the Footsteps of Paul" tour but even more highly recommend Ioanna!! We are so grateful for our day with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was a pleasure meeting your family.
Michael MandelUnited States
Ioanna was delightful, knowledgeable and professional. She knew her facts and delivered them in a friendly and interesting way. Throughout our tour she offered us options as to what we wanted to see and do next. This made the tour personalized and enhanced the overall experience. I would recommend Ioanna without hesitation. She will make your visit to Athens one to remember.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Mandel for your kind comment. It was a very enjoyable day for me as well. Hope you enjoy your cruise with your wife and friends.
Andrea ThileniusUnited States
AMAZING tour, very friendly!! We had an amazing time. Ioanna was so knowledgeable on everything she took us to. She is simply the best tour guide around. You will not regret hiring her for your trip to Athens. She picked us up at the cruise ship port and dropped us off with plenty of time to spare. She also recommended amazing food and coffee spots. 100% would do it again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! Congratulations on your wedding! Enjoy every moment of your special day!
Brett HamiltonUnited States
iOANNA is very knowledgeable and professional. She is very friendly and helpful. She gave us good options on what to do and not to do. We asked her advice on several other parts of our trip and she was very helpful. She went above and beyond to make sure our tour was enjoyable. We would use her again, and recommend her to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback. Hope you have a wonderful time on the islands.
Rosely W SingerBrazil
Very good guide and I recommend her
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. It was a nice morning!
Another good tour with Ioanna and a nice drive along the coast.
A lovely tour by a lovely tour guide. It was more than expected, sharing all the knowledge and being very aware of personal abilities, taking care that we managed to see everything we wanted by pacing it so that the less agile could also manage. We learnt a lot, experienced a lot and enjoyed it a lot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was very nice spending the day with you and your mother.
Meir DallerUnited States
We had an amazing day with Ioanna on the walking tour of Athens! My husband, the two boys and I learned a lot about the history and got so much more out from our visit (the Acropolis, museum, the Olympic stadium and Temple of Zeus) than we would ever had if we explored the sites in our own. She really tailored the experience to what we were interested in, and was very knowledgeable !!! Highly recommend her guided tours!!!
Wendy BanUnited States
Ioanna is incredibly knowledgeable, fun and very personable. We were a group of four (two adults and two teenage boys) and every one of us loved the tour and were engaged and interested the entire time. I can't imagine being able to fit in all the historic sites in Athens and learning as much as we did in that amount of time. Worth the price. We highly recommend hiring Ioanna if you want to really learn what Athens is all about - historically, mythologically, and present day.
Tracey ProffUnited States
Ioanna was just amazing, she was very educated in all we saw but also so friendly and just a joy to spend the day with. I would use her again and tell anyone taking a tour of Athens to request her.
Julie MetzgerUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. It was very nice to meet all of you!
