Date: Oct 25/18

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!

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.

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!

Maria provided an excellent introduction the Parthenon site and the nearby archeological museum, then a walk through the agora, and drive through some historic areas of Athens. Her guiding through the crowds and commentary made this much more pleasant. She found us a great local light lunch stop as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carl! I am glad you enjoyed your tour of Athens. Best regards to your family!

Maria has an outstanding knowledge of Greek myth and history. She was very flexible during the day long tour and organized our visit through Athens to see the numerous historical sites we wanted to visit. We were a group of 7, with 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 boys, ages 10, 8 and 5. She accommodated her descriptions to suit both the children and the adults. She was very generous with her time. She is an excellent photographer and we have some memorable group photos. I would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sylvia! You are a beautiful family! All the best to all of you!

We visited Athens via cruise ship and arranged for Maria to do the kids tour with us, as we have two kids, 12 and 10. I think the kids tour was the right choice for me and my husband, as well, as Maria's stories and information were interesting and easy to follow. The day we were there was right in the middle of a heat wave--over 100 degrees--but Maria was very accommodating, always finding shade, finding new ways to engage my over-heated kids, and still show us all the highlights of the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leigh, It was I difficult day with the heat. I am glad you enjoyed it! All the best!

For top of the line Athens/Greek art, architecture and history, delivered with passion, entertainment, and humor, Maria is the guide you want. Maria is definitely in the top tier. Don't be fooled by imposters! Maria is the real deal and will make your day in Athens one you will remember fondly. We certainly do. I don’t often write reviews, but this guide deserves any accolades I can give.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, Thank you so much for your kind words. You made my day! All the best to all of you!

We had two guided tours with Maria, the first one in the Acropolis area and the second one in Eleusis. We enjoyed both tours very much. Maria is a wonderful guide. She is amazingly knowledgeable, presents things in an interesting way, and is good at adapting the tour and her presentation to her customers interests. On top of this, she is a very nice person. Thank you, Maria! Barbro and Henrik

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbro and Henrik, Thank you very much for your comments. I truly enjoyed your company too. All the best for your future! I hope we meet again one day!

Maria was a delight and the tour was great. Informative and entertaining! My 12-year old daughter loved how Maria engaged her at every step of the tour. I highly recommend Maria with or without children. Thanks Maria, we learned so much about Greece, Athens and the Acropolis!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Paul! It was wonderful meeting you both! I am sure many people in Athens feel this way about you these days. All the best for you and your family. Have a happy holiday season!

Had a very short window of time for my first time in Athens - only 24 hours on the ground. Maria worked with me to craft a walking itinerary to cover as much as we could, and she absolutely exceeded expectations. We covered all highlights we discussed + more! Her depth of knowledge and excellent logistical planning made the most of my time, and in many ways, it felt like I was hanging out with an old friend who just happened to have a professor-level knowledge of Greek history!

Maria was a fabulous tour guide for our family of 2 adults and 4 kids aged 6-11. It was a blazing hot day and Maria was energetic the entire time and engaging with the kids. I highly recommend her to anyone. She is full of interesting information and good stories!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tracy! I am glad you enjoyed our tour today despite the heat. Have a great time on Naxos! I am sure you will love it there! All the best to you and your precious family!

Amazing is not enough to describe my family's experience with Maria. We did the kids tour on our 2nd day in Athens (with jet lag from US) and our 3 kids were not in their best mood to go out and walk, let alone endure the Athenian summer heat. Maria was so wonderful, patient, professional and able to direct my family to the tour. My son really loved it and so do we. Full of facts and sceneries about classical Athens and Maria is so knowledgable. This tour is highly recommendable for kids and adults!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gladell! All the best for you and your beautiful family!Please send my love to sweet Pauline, genius Audrey and wonderful Gabe!

I was in Athens for a few days with my two children (10 & 7). We had an incredible tour with Maria! She was extremely knowledgeable about Greek history and ancient Athens. Most impressive was how Maria made the tour intriguing and educational for my children during 5 hours ! I, too learned so much even though I had been to Athens several times previously. Not only do I recommend her and I hope to tour with here in the future somewhere in Greece!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Justin! I was very impressed also to meet someone that is so passionate about my country and has explored so many of its corners. All the best for you and your beautiful children!

Our walking tour with Maria was fantastic & everything we wanted. We are a family of four with two 13 year old children. It was an extremely hot day but Maria managed it perfectly, not one complaint from the teenagers & they were engaged, for the entire 6 hours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Annissa! All the best for you and your lovely family!

Date: Jun 27/17

We did a 6 hr shore excursion with Maria through Athens, which was an absolutely unforgettable tour, despite the weather being very hot that day. She was very good in engaging my 2 boys ages 9 and 11 in the questions on Greek Mythology and Ancient Greece historical facts. She has had a well-planned gelato stop right in the middle of the tour. The highlight was the Acropolis and Parthenon, both of which she described with enough detail that kept it enlightening for both children and parents.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Suzanne! I truly enjoyed touring with your precious boys too! All the best! Please pass them my warm regards!
