If you are interested in history, this is an awsome trip. Vassilis told us the engaging stories about Athen and what to visit. This trip tells you about everything that you wont hear in a museum.

We passed a great time with Jimmy. Fun, knowledgeable and a good storyteller. He managed to squeeze tons of information to the 3 hours we had. Also, he's Greek/Australian so he speaks perfect English, no worries there!
