Nota is a fantastic guide with incredible knowledge of Athens history and culture. I took my parents on her tour on their first trip to Athens in many years. Having Nota as a guide was like seeing the city with an old family friend. The tour was fascinating and engaging, and Nota was flexible as to how we spent the afternoon.

Nota was wonderful. She did a fantastic job of describing the historical periods of Athens to start the tour. She added a lot of color and detail to those periods utilizing the pieces in the museum and the temples and structures on the Acropolis, as well as her knowledge of Greek history and mythology. She was great with our teenage kids, who had fun discussing mythology with her. She is engaging and has a casual way about her that makes conversation easy. We highly recommend her.

Nota was very knowledgeable about the history of the Acropolis. She was able to give us a very detailed overview of the history without overwhelming us while highlighting fascinating information we would have likely have missed on our own. Both my 22 year old and my 15 year old also enjoyed the tour and we all highly recommend Nota! She also was very helpful in suggestions to make the best use of our limited time in Athens.

Nota was a terrific guide for our Acropolis and Old Town tour! We really enjoyed her detailed explanations on all the ancient sites as well as the history of Athens. Our tour of old town was informative and enjoyable as we explored several different neighborhoods. Nota also provided helpful recommendations for places to eat and other activities to fit our remaining time in Athens. She is also a wonderful photo taker!! Overall a wonderful experience.

Nota was a pleasure to deal with. We needed to adjust our start time and she easily accommodated. She was extremely knowledgeable of Athens and the Acropolis and was able to explain the significance of the sights in a way that was meaningful to our youngest daughter - age 13 as well as the older members of the group who had more insight into classical antiquity.

We took the National Archaelogical Museum tour with Nota. She is a wonderful guide with lots of information to share. She took us systematically through the various time periods and kept us engaged. Museums can be a hard place with plenty of dry information for kids; however our 10 year old daughter was able to enjoy some of the important artifacts in the museum. Nota helped us all appreciate the differences between the archaic and classical styles of Greek art.

Nota was a wonderful guide who is both extremely knowledgeable and personable -- I highly recommend engaging her services! We originally wandered over to the Accropolis on our own, but without understanding the signficiance of the ruins we were viewing it was not a very satisfying experience. So I booked a tour with Nota, who was gracious in accommodating our last-minute request, and really made the site come alive for us. Lovely person who did a great job adapating to our needs -- highly recommended!

Nota was an outstanding guide and companion for our group of six. We added a drive up Lycebettus Hill to the tour which gave her further opportunity to orient us to Athens and its history before continuing to the Acropolis. Nota was extremely well-informed, engaging and humorous and she was very patient with a group of huffing, puffing seniors. She led us to an excellent lunch spot in Plaka and her recommendations for dinners proved excellent. We give her our highest recommendation!

Nota was a good guide, however, after paying $234.00 (US) for a two hour tour of old town and Acropolis, we had to also pay 20 euros each to get into the Acropolis. Nowhere in any email that I received, did it state that the Acropolis was to be an extra 80 euros. I was very disappointed, and it really put a damper on the trip. When your expecting to have everything already paid for and then have to fork out more money on the spot, it was very upsetting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ToursByLocals are committed to quality customer experiences and take all feedback seriously.We have investigated this matter and confirm that the additional costs for entrance to the Acropolis were disclosed correctly by our guide in the 'What's Extra' section of the booking form as we would expect. We will endeavour to continue improving our communications in future to make such details even clearer.

This tour was great. Nota is very easy to like. She set a good pace for the tour -- she kept us moving, while still giving us time to let our surroundings sink in. A visitor does not need a guide to feel the significance of the Acropolis, but she gave us details which helped us absorb the history much more fully. She also was helpful in suggesting additional sites to visit. In the Acropolis Museum, her insights were very useful to us and we appreciated her sense of humor.

Nota was fabulous. Her english was perfect. She was as knowledgeable and as personable as she could be for our needs. It was very interesting talking to her. She was very accommodating to our interest, and enhanced our experiences in Athens beyond my expectations. I would happily recommend her to anyone wanting to tour Athens. Again, I have been very impressed with the quality and professionalism of Toursbylocals guides. Bravo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I deeply appreciate your words. I will be happy to see you again if you ever come again

This was our second tour with Nota, and we were glad to spend another day with her. Unfortunately, we had a major problem at the beginning. Our group got separated, and we lost two hours trying to get back together. This was out of Nota's control, and she helped as best she could. We still were able to get a great tour of the Acropolis, and then she gave us some tips about the Acropolis Museum to see ourselves. We were sorry to have to say goodbye - Nota made our trip to Athens very memorable!

Nota was wonderful! She was very prompt with her emails, and patient when figuring out the details. She met us on time, and was very friendly. She showed us all the most important sites of the old city, and was very understanding of our needs - my dad is slow, and she was happy to go slowly for him. She gave us excellent commentary, both about the history and what it is like in Athens today. For lunch, she took us to a great local restaurant. Definitely book Nota for a fantastic Athens experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the pleasure to spend two beautiful days with you! I wish you keep your good energy and enthusiasm!

Nota is informative and friendly. She went of her way to make sure we did not miss many of the highlights while knowing instinctively when we needed to take a break for refreshments or linger at a site of particular interest. Her stories of life in the ancient agoura in particular made the place come alive! This tour was a great introduction to Athens.

Our three days with Nota were truly special. She conveyed great information regarding everything we were seeing with enough passion to keep the attention of two teenagers, not an easy feat. She went out of her way to enhance our experience. After visiting Cape Sunio, when I expressed interest in the Greek trireme warships, she organized a stop at the harbor to view the working replica boat there even though the hour was late and it wasn't on the original itinerary. Nota is a great choice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Demetrios! Better late than never! I hope that you enjoyed all of your trip here. A few days later the problems started! Thank you very much for your nice words, it means a lot to me

Nota S. was a delightful and knowledgeable guide. She was very flexible and adjusted my tour to meet my walking requirements. As a result of my walk with her, I not only know more about some of the historical sites, but I was also much better oriented to the central part of the city. I highly recommend her.

Top rating for Nota S. I had just 48 hours in Athens (including transfer time for/to the airport) and arranged for a personal customized tour of 4 hours each day. She is a licensed guide, fluent English-speaker, well-educated in Greek culture. She accommodated my octogenarian needs and pace as we walked the neighborhood features "at ground level" on all sides of the Acroplis hill on the first day and climbed to the Parthenon and visited the Acropolis Museum on the second. Best guide I have had!

I was travelling with my 14 year old grandson and wanted an informative and personalized walking tour of Athens (full day)and could not have asked for anything better in a guide than Nota. She arrived at our hotel in the pouring rain and quickly whisked us off to the new Acropolis Museum where she provided us with an excellent overview and tour of key objects, then through many of the neighborhoods and the Agora--the sun came out--we had a lovely lunch in a local restaurant--it was absolutely perfect.

Nota was our guide for two tours during our stay in Greece. The trip to Delphi was outstanding. Nota provided an ongoing dialog of Greek history and information about the country side during the 2 1/2 hour trip. Her knowledge of Delphi was mesmerizing - we didn't want the day to end. Nota is a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful person to travel with. We all learned a lot -- far more than we could have learned making the trip on our own. We highly recommend Nota for whatever tours you are considerin

Nota made the Acropolis and the Agora come alive. While we had some knowledge before hand it was very minimal considering what we learned during our 4 hours with Nota. Without Nota, the Acropolis would have been an interesting pile of rocks. Her knowledge of history and architecture was amazing along for her enthusiasm and willingness to answer any questions. She also made great restaurant and museum recommendations. We (4 adults) strongly recommend this and any tours given by Nota.
