Georgious was extremely professional and kind, he gave us very interesting historical insights on the monuments we were seeing. He took us to see the change of the guards in front of the Presidential Palace to avoid the crowds. Highly recommend this tour for an overview of Athens, I was with my 11 year old son, he had a great time! This experience was awesome!
