Walter gave a great tour. He has a great personality and tons of knowledge. I've done a walking tour in the past (from another company) where we saw the common sites. Loved learning and seeing Athens through the lens of an archeologist. 100% recommend this tour!

Not sure why we got a bad review as we messaged you a few times to clarify where the tour was and why you had to move to the next day. You should be more understanding due to the extremely strict measures that Greece is placing on us every day for your safety. Again, we're sorry this tour did not work in your favor.

Walter was great! Informative and clear in the information he gave. Definitely worth stopping by this tour to learn about the highlights of Athens’ historic sights!!

Our tour guide Walter was by far the best tour guide we've ever had. He was very knowledgeable about the wast history of Athens and delivered it in a fun and engaging way. For anyone visiting, I would recommend you take this tour before visiting any sites. That way you can piece together the information given on the tour and the sites and exhibits you're going to see. We give Walter 10 out of 10!
