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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

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.

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.
