Fun interactive sightseeing tour

Having someone who knows the stories and the history really adds up to the experience. We learned something new this day and got enough time in between to take some photo's and video's during the tour. Our tour guide Kimon was very knowledgeable and kept thing interactive and fun by asking the group questions and cracking some jokes from time to time.

This was worth the time and money! Fotini was a fantastic guide and made the tour fun and educational. She answered all of our questions about the historical sites and general greek culture. She was also very patient with the members of the group who wanted to take some extra photos of all the sites.

The organization was great. Our guide Ionna was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Told us a lot of information about the acropolis, culture and history. The tour in the museum was fantastic and very helpful. You should take both tours to complete your understanding.

Do not use this company

Please do not use this service. There were no clear instructions on where to meet. I tried emailing, but got no response until after the tour started. They refused to give me a refund. I spoke with another tour company. They were much more accommodating. DO NOT BOOK ANY TOUR WITH THIS CIMPAMY.

A guided tour is the way to go to bring the site to life. Informative and interesting, even for the kids. Our guide was amazing!

Great Tour Guide
Dominic_M
, Aug 2021
Wonderful experience and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter on both the acropolis itself and at the museum. We are not huge fans of guided tours, and booked this primarily to skip the line, but it turned out great. Highly recommend if you want to actually dive a bit deeper. Even our 12 year old daughter was interested!
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
What a wonderful review! Thank you so much! We are really happy that you enjoyed our small group tour, even you are not a fan! Our tours are carefully designed to capture the guests' attention and not to bore them with meaningless details. We don't want it to feel like a history lesson and that is why even teenagers love it! Thank you again for your kind feedback!
