This experience was amazing! The communication was good across the board. We were directed via phone call to our driver from the port so there was no confusion at all. The driver (we called him 'G') was funny and warm, he was talking to us about the history of Athens and about himself and made us feel like family. He not only dropped us off but walked us to the tour starting point. The tour guide was amazing she knew so much of the Greek history and mythology it was a very in depth and insightful tour. She constantly stopped to talk about the history (we didn't feel rushed) and made sure we were all okay and having fun. We saw so many amazing sites and learned the background behind them. We finished our tour and called the driver who earlier gave us his number and he came straight away to pick us up. We made it back to the ship in good time. Overall we had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend to anyone!
The trip was very well organized, we didn't have to worry about anything on site. We were allowed to decide for ourselves which sights we would like to visit and whether and on which beach we would like to swim. Because the tour on the island was led by a local, we got an impression of the way of life there and learned a lot about the history and sights. So all in all a great excursion that I can recommend to everyone.
Sophia made sure all was well with everyone making sure we understood all directions and were safe.
