          A Great Sunday tour with Stevie, She had been guide for 20 years well worth the expense
          Greek Insider, our travel agent contract with Athens Insider for a private tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum. We were met 8:30 at Hotel Achilleas which is about 15 minute walk to Acropolis. We arrived at Acropolis and Stevie, our tour guide, lead us into the site. We were there in March so the site was not busy. Since Stevie had everything in order, we just started the tour. There are two ways to get to the top, one is straight up while other, which we took, meanders through several ancient ruins such as Dionysus Theatre, Stolla, Odeon of Herodus Atticus, and finally through the Propylaea, major gateway to the Acropolis. Since it was Easter Lent week for Greek Orthodox and Spring break for other countries, there were student groups. Therefore Stevie took our time for us to enjoy and explain the sites. She even took some great photos of us during trip. After Acropolis, we went to Acropolis museum and she explained many of the artifacts and recreations which were there. Her knowledge was astounding and well worth the cost. There were only two of us with Stevie so we got to ask questions which we wanted to know as well as hear her answers, explanations easily.

          Family visit to Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center
          In Athens, Greece, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is a shining example of cultural enrichment, providing a wide range of activities for both visitors and families. Our family is dedicated to encouraging cultural interaction, and we have found the SNFCC to be a great resource for our neighbourhood. There is something for everyone at the SNFCC, from its breathtaking architecture to its wide range of programming. The large green area that envelops the centre offers a pleasant diversion from the busy metropolis, ideal for outdoor events like picnics. Our comprehension of literature, music, and the arts is enhanced by the cultural events held at the centre, which include educational workshops, concerts, and exhibitions. Furthermore, the SNFCC's dedication to accessibility guarantees that everyone in the community, regardless of background or socioeconomic status, can participate in cultural experiences. Families who might not otherwise be able to afford such opportunities can access cultural enrichment absolutely for free. We considered the SNFCC to be the high point of our trip as tourists in Athens. Its proximity to other important sites makes it an easy stop for travellers, and its coastal location affords stunning views of the ocean. The centre's cultural offerings improve our overall perception of Athens as a cultural destination by offering a distinctive look into Greek art and heritage.

          Athens Walking Food Tour
          Klea was the most amazing knowledge guide! We were able to experience so many different offerings even on a Sunday in Athens. From our beginning at a local coffee shop with coffee and sweet treats to our conclusion at a neighborhood wine and cheese shop we learned more and more at every stop about what to shop for and how to order the perfect Authentic Greek food and drinks. We so enjoyed our guide Klea’s stories and humor! Four hours flew by! I would highly suggest a tour! Five Stars!!!

          Brilliant tour !!
          It was certainly dramatic given the rain on Wednesday/ Thursday but Komissa was a complete professional. We were very grateful to her for going the extra mile for us, her knowledge and passion for Greece, and it’s history was evident. We loved her ability to share this with us. The tour was brilliant.

          Exceptional
          Thanks to our incredibly knowledgeable guide Stelios, we immersed ourselves in a series of culinary experiences, set throughout Athens as a backdrop, which proved to be absolutely delightful. This provided us with various opportunities to experience the city in the yummiest of ways! Learning not just about architecture, but about the people, their food and customs. Thanks team!

          Amazing Greek food tour
          Having just done a group tour in Reykjavik that was excellent, I was prepared to be underwhelmed with this one but to my surprise, it was amazing! Mostly because our guide Era was wonderful. She was personable and very knowledgeable about the area and the food. She easily answered all of our questions and led us to several small, family-owned shops with different types of food. She also took us to the local market to see how most local folks got their groceries. We sampled lots of different food, learned about the various types of olive oil, and traveled down many beautiful small walkways among other things. As an added bonus her English was very clear and easy to understand. Just be ready to walk on cobblestones and climb steps.

          Perfect Introduction to Athens
          Yiannis our guide was fabulous. Felt like we were walking with friend showing us his home town. Perfect mix of history, culture and of course food. Highly recommend. This was a flawless company to work with and I was very nervous as I planned the trip last minute. We were tow people, Tow to three is a good number for the tour. Lots of walking which for us was great. We worked off some of the delicious food.

          Great activity for first day in Greece!
          Vicky took us (mom/18 yo daughter) on a walking food tasting tour of Athens. It was a great first introduction to Greece at the beginning of our 2 week trip. Some of the best food we had the entire trips was on the tour with Vicky. We combined our food tasting tour with a tour of the Acropolis and she knew a lot about history, mythology, and travel throughout Greece as well. Vicky provided us with a lot of tips that were helpful throughout the rest of our trip. Hanging out with Vicky in Athens was one of the highlights of our trip.

          Best guide ever!
          Giota provided my family the best tour of the Acropolis and a food tour. She made Greek history come alive to even those in the family that don’t love history :). She was a pleasure to spend the day with and we felt like we had a new family member! And i think she acquired a new little brother :) Thank you so much Giota!!

          We really enjoyed this tour and felt like we got to see most of the top sights in Athens. Our guide, Valia, was fun and informative. Her energy made the tour particularly great.

          A wonderful tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum
          Our family (two adults, two teens and one grandparent) had a fantastic tour with Antigone. She met us at our hotel and walked us to the Acropolis. The tour was perfectly paced for our family. Antigone was knowledgeable and thoughtful. We would highly recommend this tour.

          Wonderful customized tour
          Athens Insiders was wonderful to work with. They customized what we wanted to do and made suggestions on how to best use our time. We were traveling with our 1 year old, so needed flexibility in our schedule to have downtime in the middle of the day. They accommodated everything we needed, including having our driver pick us up early from one site when the baby melted down. Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and made our tour much more interesting than going alone. I would definitely use Athens Insiders again and highly recommend.

          As much of Athens as you can absorb in one day
          George was an excellent guide for this full day tour of Athens. We met at our hotel at 9a and walked through the Plaka district to the Acropolis. We spent a few hours at the Acropolis and Parthenon, then went to the Acropolis Museum. The collection is huge and would have been overwhelming without George's guiding us to the highlights and providing commentary. We then grabbed a quick gyro pita lunch and walked to the Agora. We then met a driver who took us to Panathenaic Stadium, the Temple of Zeus and Lycabettus Hill. It was a very full day.

        I traveled to Greece with my parents, husband, and mother-in-law. This was scheduled for the last day prior to leaving back home and this was one of the best tours while in Greece!

        Giannis (which I hope is the right spelling) picked us up at our hotel in Athens and the long drive to Mycanae, Nafplio and Corinth. The van was well appointed with rain poncho, wet wipes, snacks, maps for each person in the van. Giannis is a great conversationalist, intelligent, with a ton of information about Greece in general.

        At two of the stops, Epidaurus and Mycenae we had a guide dedicated for these two locations.

        My favorite (not only seeing the historic sites), but our lunch in Nafplio a gorgeous city and delicious seafood! My mother-in-law even tried octopus for the very first time and loved the taste and texture (which can be difficult with octopus!).

        The total time of the tour is about 9 hours. The sites can be difficult to navigate (meaning uphills and a ton of steps). The parents all opted out of some part of the tours because of the navigation of steps and uphill.

        Overall, I highly recommend this tour - all of us really enjoyed the sites and Giannis made this truly a highlighted tour of Greece!

        This was part of our tour which Greece Insider, planned whole tour of Greece which included Santorini, Create and Athens area. We were lucky to have SBC's Yanus, The Hog, as our private driver. He had previously taken us to Delphi for the Delphi tour. If you have an opportunity asked for Yanus as your driver. We started out and first stop as Corinth canal which we saw, next stop was Mycenae with George, our guide. George was very informative in laying out history, philosophy and conjecture fo the area - he may or may not be to your appreciation. Mycenae, itself is more ruins than rebuilt area. Its was prominent in Greek history from 1600-1300 BC afterwhich there was a decline. The famous Lion Gate at Mycenae site as well as the proposed Agamenon tomb are two of the visited sites. Unfortunately the tomb was vandalized long time ago so they cannot state it was Agamenon or not. The Mycenae "Acropolis" site was also destroyed so much of the buildings are only scattered ruins. The museum itself has some artifacts and replicas - one being the "Agamenon" gold mask - original is in Athens.
        The Corinth canal is marvel of engineering 1860's.
        Yanus, also stopped at THE SILO which is an artist studio and shop with many interesting items from Icons, to Greek pottery, Jewelry, and food. The prices vary from expensive - Icons are very good to Authentic Reproduction of pottery.
        Last stop was winery at which we tasted wine and had lunch.

        If you are considering a tour company for a visit to Greece, we highly recommend Athens Insider. They arranged five activities for us, and we enjoyed every one of them. They took excellent care of us, both in preparing for the trip and during the different excursions.

        The day trip from Athens was excellent. Our driver Yannis was outstanding — we had him as our driver for three days, and we enjoyed our time with him as much as the sites themselves. He was a careful driver, very considerate of us and everyone on the road around us. He helped us to get to know Greece and appreciate the warmth and hospitality of its people. While not a licensed guide, his insights at Napflion helped us know both the medieval site and the modern town. Throughout our time with him, Yannis added a number of little touches to our trip that made it feel very personal to us.

        We also strongly recommend visiting Greece in November. We were fortunate to enjoy a week with no rain, mild temperatures, and virtually no crowds. To be able to stand in the ampitheater at Epidauros, or the throne room at Mycenae, with the unspoilt scenery behind, with not a sound and barely another person to be seen, made the visit so much more rewarding.

        We loved our private day trip to Mycenae, Nafplio and Epidauros. The Greek countryside is beautiful and a relaxing change from busy Athens. Our driver Vasilis was informative, enthusiastic and pleasant to be with. He answered our questions and was good at intuiting our interests and reasons for travel, so the day was tailored for us. The time spent at each site was negotiable and so was the location for lunch. The vehicle was quite comfortable and we were provided with cold water and snacks. The day trip was a lovely day to remember and one of the highlights of our vacation.

        Athens Insiders organizes the tours and excursions for my wife and I during our stay in Athens. The guides were all very knowledgeable, and experienced, immersing us in the culture, mythology and ancient history. We loved our walking tour of Athens, visit to the Acropolis and museums and were impressed by the time each guide was willing to spend answering our questions in detail and giving us a detailed look at all the things that interested us most. Stelios and especially Sissi were spectacular guides in Athens.

        The highlight of our entire 12 day trip was the 3 days we spent with our private driver and guide Yannis Varouhakis. Yannis stood out to us within the first few hours of our private excursion to the Temple of Poseidon. He conversed in fluent English as though it is a first language and was able to carry on the most interesting discussions on all topics from art, architecture, ancient and modern history, philosophy and politics, etc. He stoped at any location that he thought we would appreciate in harmony with our conversations, places not even included in our original tour itinerary allowing us to dive even deeper into to the different periods of history and culture that we otherwise would have missed. He took us to all the best and coziest family restaurants, helping us order the most traditional as well as adventuresome dishes, even taking us back into the kitchens to make it a truly fabulous culinary experience.

        It was hard to say good buy to Greece not just because of the magic of history and culture that reside in her coasts and ancient ruins, but also because it was hard to say good buy to our new friend Yannis. We highly recommend both Athens Insiders and especially Yannis Varouhakis for your next trip. We will definitely be coming back!
