Wonderful! We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed his company as he explained so many things to us. Delightful and very knowledgeable.
Excellent tour with Stella. Very informative and adding the needed context for understanding what we were seeing.
This is a great tour that we did after touring the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum earlier in the day. It was a great compliment to our morning activities and really helped to give us an idea of ancient Athens and its civic life, as well as some of the modern neighborhoods in the area. I highly recommend the tour, especially if you can go with Alexandros. Alexandros was an amazing guide who brought ancient Athens to life for us. He was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and charming. Our tour with Alexandros is the highlight of our trip so far and we are glad that we were able to spend the afternoon with him in Athens. Thank you, Alexandros!
