Michael was an excellent guide. His English was really proficient making for an informative exchange in such an historically-rich city. The acropolis, which we were visiiting for the first time since 1968, was exhilirating, even with the huge crowds present. Michael knowledge of the area steered us through the crowds and gained us the best viewing angles for photos. In 1968 we walked freely through the Parthenon, not so now. Michael, with Manos the driver, took us to far more places and sights than we had previously seen and we are most grateful.
Hosts were very welcoming. Surved Ouzo and an appetizer immediately. Encouraged us to get very hands on with the food prep and cooking. Environment was very spacious, clean and inviting. Excellent conversation about a multitude of subjects during the cooking. Got to eat the finished product and took us up to the roof for a scenic view. Also, provided us with a few spots to check out as per our request of things to see and do.
Very nice walking tour - starting with some explanations on ancient sites around the Agora and finishing with the « Rebellion » quarter of Athens, where graffiti is still a political rather than an artistic expression. Pleasant stopover in a small street café in the middle of the tour. We have come many times to Athens before, but discovered some new areas thanks to the tour.
This tour offered historical sites, up & coming neighborhoods, and a cultural look at graffiti. A stop for Greek coffee offered us more time to ask questions and take a short break. Both the guide & accompanying archaeologist were informative.
Exceptional guide. Full of knowledge about everything - history, culture, politics. Very special experience.
