Very professionally done. Guide was excellent. The headphones had some issues, probably need to upgrade that aspect. The line at acropolis was crazy due to Easter weekend. Our guide overcame by flipping our tour to start at museum. It was great, we entered quickly and had so much information prior to entering the actual site. This made for a greater appreciation of the ruins. I thought I had purchased skip the line, Advice from me: pay attention that when your tour shopping that yours provides “skip the line” sure is worth it! Luckily, in spite of my oversight, our guide was able to make our trip happen quickly in spite of long lines. Was well worth the $$ to have an experienced guide for this once in a lifetime experience!!!

From the pick up from our hotel through to dropping us back was really well organised. The staff were all happy to assist you. They couldn’t do enough for us. There was only 7 of us which was very relaxed and informal. The open bar was great and the food was excellent, varied and plenty of it too. Well done Sunset Oia. Well worth the money.
