Fotis, our tour guide, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and courteous. Since we were a small group of six, the tour felt like a family roadtrip, boarding the beautiful Aegean coast. We started early at 8:15am so he invited us to a delicious specialty iced coffee and water. We continue our tour with a stop in a nice beach where we were able to swim and relax for an hour and a half. Right after we headed to the Temple of Poseidon while our tour guide explained the interesting story of this Greek God. At the temple we were able to admire and take pictures of the breath taking views of Cape Sounion. Then, on our way back he took us to a popular seafood restaurant where we enjoyed and share as good friends or family, some delicious and tradicional Greek seafood. Efcharisto Fotis! You gave us one of the most memorable and wonderful tour we ever had.

Kostas was great. He was knowledgeable, entertaining, funny and great company for such long drives. During the tour parts in Delphi ruins and museum he really showed his love and passion for his work. Kostas kept us entertained during the long drives between pit stops telling the group about different points of interest along the way and stories/history of Athens and Greece. The stop in Arachova for the view was amazing. Kostas even offered to take pictures for the group. The driver was amazing and showed his skills in the narrow streets. I would definitely recommend this tour or any other by him.

The tour was amazing and our guide was even better! The variety of food we were able to try we would have never found on our own. As an added bonus the locations and food items were sent in a message after the tour so that we could go back! Best food tour we took this trip.

Incredibile tour with extremely knowledgeable guide. We truly enjoyed learning more about the acropolis and visiting Plaka. The tour through Greek, Roman and Turkish history was incredible.

We had a really good time with our guide Alexander . . very knowledgeable and professional . . even showed us a local restaurant for lunch . . everything was perfect!
