David DycusUnited States
We love Maria! More importantly, my kids loved Maria! She was wonderful and so knowledgeable. I had a cranky 6-year old that was tired of the heat and walking, but Maria was able to accommodate her and keep her excited about the tour. We learned so much and I would not hesitate to recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! I am glad she wanted to take my leg with her in the end��. Best regards, Maria
Donna LiUnited States
We had a fantastic walking tour of Athens with Maria. She was friendly, very knowledgeable & mindful of keeping it interesting for all of us - including our 2 children (13yo, 10yo). In addition to sharing information on history, architecture, Maria also engaged with the kids with fun facts & mythology questions. Due to a ceremony at the Acropolis, the tour was longer than originally planned; however, it was a bonus for us as Maria still ensured that we were able to cover all the key sites. A great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I am glad you enjoyed our tour. All the best for you and your family!

We spent two days in Athens. Fortunately, one of those days was spent with "Professor" Maria. I say Professor because she is incredibly knowledgeable about Athens and the Acropolis, and so much more. Maria's love for her country and for Athens is infectious, and she made Greek history and Athens come alive for us. She is not only knowledgeable and intelligent, she is also very gracious and kind. I have taken many tours with private guides all over the world, and Maria is hands down the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thank you for your kind words. I wish you and Kristi all the best for a very happy New Year and a Merry Christmas for you and your family!
Tim LewisUnited Kingdom
Maria is charming, extremely knowledgeable in all things Greek from pre-BCE to the 21st century. She is relaxed, empathetic and a total joy to be escorted around Athens by. Maria imparts so much insight you can't fail to be impressed. Thank you Maria and I recommend you put her top of your list id you want to do a proper, swift walking tour of the main sights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tim! I really appreciate you kind words. All the best to the four of you! Have a wonderful time in Athens!
Elaine A.United States
Maria arranged for a van and driver and we drove away from Athens to see the history and learn about life during earlier times. This is very worthwhile after viewing Athens main sights. It was a long day but we saw so much. Maria recommended a great restaurant for lunch.
Elaine A.United States
Maria adapted our tour with our family including 2 teenagers. We were able to see and learn so much from Maria. She is very well versed in both the history and present times in Greece. We really enjoyed her company.
Kelly LibelUnited States
Maria was great! She was very patient with our kids (the 13 yr old was sick and our 10 yr old melted down at the modern Olympic Stadium because she was so hot). We would not have been able to see any of the sights without Maria and her interesting and entertaining stories. I would highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kelly! All the best for you and your family!
Katherine CroattUnited States
Maria was a fantastic guide for our day in Athens. She had a great wealth of knowledge about the city, its history and all of the ruins we had a chance to visit. She made the difference between just seeing the beautiful places and coming away with a real knowledge of Athenian culture - both past and present!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catherine!
Gregory BellUnited States
Maria was a fantastic guide. She is exceedingly knowledgeable of Greek history and mythology, she answered every question and gave valuable insight to the artifacts and monuments. She gave us great pointers on places to to go for meals and shopping after her tour and she went out of her way to help speed up our entry to the acropolis. Maria was very personable and mindful of our well being. I would absolutely recommend her for your tour of Athens.
Russell C.San Diego, CA, United States
Maria was a superb guide. Important, her English was quite excellent and easy to understand. Her knowledge of Athens and all the places we visited was phenomenal. So much background and information! We couldn't absorb it all! But that's okay, we know so much more than we would have from a typical tour. Not only did Maria provide extensive knowledge, she is just a very nice person. Glad we got to experience Athens through her eyes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words! All the best for many more happy travels!

James LeonardUnited States
Maria was a charming, knowledgable guide who took my wife and me on a 4-hour tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. She was patient with our questions and the pacing of the tour was just right. Seeing the Parthenon was a "bucket list" item for us and Maria made the day very memorable. Highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike! All the best to both of you!
I only had one day in Athens and spending the morning with Maria was a fantastic way to see the major sites. She friendly and knowledgeable and her insights into the history and culture of Athens were incredibly interesting. We packed so much into four hours but it did not feel rushed at all. She also gave me some ideas of things I could do in the afternoon- which was really valuable for someone with limited time. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Maria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lucy, thank you so much for your kind words! I hope you will go home full of wonderful memories of this whole trip! Best regards, Maria T.
We had a very enjoyable tour with Maria. Maria is very knowledgeable and showed us the beauty of old Athens in a very pleasant way. Marie tour is interactive and during the tour we played games and had riddles that made the tour much more fun. especially for the kids. We highly recommend Maria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gil! I am glad you enjoyed Athens! All the best for you and your beautiful family!
Lynette ShortUnited States
We had a terrific tour with Maria in Athens. We were able to customize the tour to meet our needs. We were picked up at our cruise ship and taken to the sites we had requested. Maria had a wealth of information on Athens and its history and was flexible to our needs while adjusting to traffic delays. We would highly recommend Maria for your tour in Athens. She found a great Greek restaurant in the Plaka district for our lunch and we avoided some of the crowds.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynette, Thank you for your kind words! I am glad the tour met your expectations. All the best for your future!

Rachel B.United Kingdom
This was a long day for everyone but well worth it. Maria is an excellent guide and the transport provided was first rate. Maria has vast amounts of knowledge about ancient Greece and its monuments and her English is impeccable. Our 4 children loved listening to her tell all the ancient myths as we drove between sites. Corinth Canal and Mycenae are well worth a visit for anyone considering a day trip from Athens. Happy to recommend Maria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rachel, It was most enjoyable for me to spend two days with your amazing family. I cannot hide my admiration about your parenting raising such wonderful and gifted kids. All the best for your future!
Rachel B.United Kingdom
An excellent introduction to the City for the whole family. Maria targeted this to both us as adults and our 4 kids. She was very personable and extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the city. She used word and picture clues to guide the kids through some of the main sites on our walking tour. Well paced, lots of the main sites covered and a very well timed ice cream stop! Would recommend to another family looking to get the most out of a trip to Athens.
Daniel KettUnited States
Maria was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable and personable. We really enjoyed the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daniel! I really enjoyed spending time with both of you! All the best for you and your family!
Maria was a fantastic guide to show us around Athens in a single day. We covered the Temple of Zeus, the Olympic stadium, national gardens, the Plaka, Acropolis, and Acropolis Museum in a single day, with time for lunch and afternoon tea. Maria made it fun for our girls, and was sensitive to their needs in terms of walking distances, water stops, and getting out of the direct sun. We added on the Acropolis Museum to her normal kids tour and were very glad that we did! For an extra 2 hours, it was amazing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey, I am happy to have met your beautiful family. All the best for your future with many happy travels!
