George was absolutely lovey and well informed. The route was great and I learnt so much about Greek history and a few jokes along the way. Highly recommend.

We had Walter as our guide in Athens 31/10/2020, and it was just fabulous! The history, archeology and mythology came to life in front of our eyes. In short distance of walking we covered so much, with a lot of stories, great hummer, and relevant comments! Everyone loved it! Strongly recommended!

Great tour guide . George was a fabulous host and mixed detailed knowledge of Ancient Greek history with a little humour . Discovered so many places I would never have found myself . Well worth it and highly recommended

We loved the walk, great way to learn about the city. I would recommend doing this at the beginning of your trip so that you can then plan what you want to do based on the places you see etc. George had so much knowledge and was very passionate about Athens, he was helpful and friendly.
