    Small group walking tour of the old town - guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic. The tour gave a great insight into the history of Athens and how the old town developed over the centuries. An enjoyable hour and a half with Martha.

    Rena was our guide for the small group tour of restaurants and food vendors. She is a young vivacious woman with great communication skills who entertained us all and educated us about her Athens through the food. It was a good introduction to the central city area and a

    Unprofessional and irresponsible We found the tour guide very unprofessional and irresponsible: 1. As per instructions, we were at meeting point at Monastiraki Square at 9.45am for the 10am tour. However, we couldn't find the guide up till 10.05am. Finally found her chatting

    Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to give us this extensive feedback. We are primarily focused in providing excellent service to all our guests, and when we have the chance to receive a review with so many details we consider it a unique opportunity to become even better and to be able to satisfy the needs of our guests even more. We are surely not pleased when someone like yourself thinks of our services as not professional. Οur first and only commitment is happy travelers to enjoy our city and our tours. That's why we have selected the best and most friendly local tour leaders and licensed guides in Athens, and we deliver high-quality service from A to Z. As a result of all these, we at the Athens Walking Tours have the most excellent reviews than any other tour operator in Athens. Your tour leader on that day is a very talented and educated young woman who loves what she does. We love to always include in our team young talents. Allow us to address one by one to all your remarks. 1. Our guide was at the meeting point on-time as you say. The group consisted of 10 people, and all other participants were already there before you arrived; the guide had checked them in her list and the only ones missing were you; she did not leave to start the tour on time but she was waiting for you. Yes, there was not a sign on that day, and this is a mistake on our behalf, we apologize. 2. She didn't need to check your names as she knew your name and who was waiting for, so she did not delay further the start of the tour. 3. All our tour leaders or licensed guides are legally working in our company complying with all Greek work regulations; they are all well trained, and this is obvious from the thousands of excellent reviews the Athens Walking Tours have continuously received. We are a licensed travel agency that provides tours and activities complying with all laws and regulations. On the contrary, I would like to inform you that the Free Walking Tours is an illegal activity in Greece and has been often prosecuted for the unlawful hiring of the people working with them. 4. We use only locals for the better experience and the insight knowledge they can transmit to their guests. We do not use foreigners who would guide without the feeling, the love or the passion of a local for his history and culture. Surely there is an accent speaking a foreign language, but all our guides speak fluent English, and she has often been praised for it. 5. Some people like being in the sun, some not. Everyone is free to choose where to stay while listening to the guide. 6. We offer daily more than 40 different tours, and it is not easy for all of us to recall with the accuracy needed the time, tour titles and meeting points. That is why she showed you our representative at the specific meeting point so you could have the proper info and check-in procedure. 7. You are right about this !!! We are very accurate, but our guides are driven by their enthusiasm sometimes and neglect the time trying to offer as much as possible and their best self. 8. Our guides and all people from the Athens Walking Tours who are involved in the operation of the tours and activities surely meet at the meeting points as they have to cooperate and coordinate the procedure of the tours participants. Closing up, we would like to mention that you could have told all this to your tour guide directly, while you were together and she could have helped a lot; this is an advantage of a small group, you can ask, tell what you prefer and the guide will take care. This is what we like to achieve with our small groups. We like to thank you for visiting our beautiful historical city!
