Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You can never go wrong with a Rick Steves recommendation! We had an outstanding day seeing Athens through a passionate local and loved every minute of it. Angelos went out of his way to get to know us and show us all that Athens had to offer. He even gave us a couple of recommendations on things to do in the morning prior to meeting up with him in the afternoon. AMAZING Day!

We had two excellent private tours with Angelos, the first covering the Acropolis and the second, the following day, the ancient Agora. Angelos is an intelligent and charming guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He brought the ancient sites to life with his entertaining stories and was happy to discuss anything and everything without sticking to a script. His prices were reasonable compared to other quotes we had got for private tours and I would not hesitate in recommending him - you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I want to recommend our tour guide from Santorini, Greece, Petros Papathanasiou lives in Athens and provides tours in both locations. He speaks excellent English and provides top notch tours. We highly recommend him

The three of us had a fantastic experience during the museum and acropolis tour!! Anna was a fountain of knowledge that could express that wealth in an interesting way!

As we walked the Acropolis Museum it quickly became evident that we would have missed so much of the nuance without Anna’s insights.

That museum background continues as we scaled the paths to the Acropolis.

Well worth the investment given the four hours of interesting guiding.

A must for all Athens visitors !

We had a wonderful tour with Angelos, who was very informative and entertaining in his tour of the ancient Agora and Acropolis. We have three teens who he kept engaged (not always easy to do!) and who learned a lot and really enjoyed the tour. Angelos was very personable and easy to ask questions about the historic sites as well as anything about Greece.

This tour was even more amazing given that a major earthquake had occurred several hours earlier, causing power outages and significant damage in Athens. Angelos was still able to meet us even though he was obviously concerned about his city, and also took care to find out how this would affect our tour (e.g. site closings). He also kept us informed about the earthquake, which fortunately didn’t cause too much damage.

My daughter has always wanted to visit the Acropolis and our tour with Angelos was a dream come true. He was not only very knowledgeable, but also highly courteous. He had a very engaging conversation with my daughter and husband about the art, the history and its significance. Although he was conscientious about the time, he adjusted the pace to accommodate us, and by us, I mean me. He took a great deal of care with me to ensure that I did not lose my footing. I believe he treated me as well as he would his own mother.

I saw recommendations about Angelos and his tours on tripadviser and contacted him to do a tour of the Acropolis and a day tour of Argolis. He responded promptly with so much information and provided information on tickets and restaurants, With a teenager it was important to find someone to keep him interested and learn. I can highly recommend Angelos. He is amazing tour guide. He was more than a tour guide, explaining the history of Athens as we went to the Acropolis. He has a real passion and knowledge of history etc and this comes over. We loved his tours. He lent my son his owl and book to read. The day tour to Argolis was amazing. He organised the vehicle and tour and explained everything to us on the journey, answering all our questions. The driver was also great and friendly. I would highly recommend Angelos. If we come again to Greece we will definatley organise more tours. He is so friendly and you learn so much. He was always prompt to collect us at the hotel and gave great recommendations for restaurants. Thank you, Angelos for your brilliant tours,

We did the Byzantine Waking Tour in October. We were very much looking forward to this tour, and, perhaps, having high expectations was not a good thing. We spent most of the tour in the Byzantine and Christian Museum. We could have easily done this on our own. We then visited 3 Byzantine churches in a cursory manner. This was one of the rare times we did not really click with our guide. Of the 4 guided tours we did in Athens, this was the one we liked least.

Dear Donald, First of all thank you for your feedback. However, the city of Athens doesn’t have many surviving Byzantine churches like Thessaloniki or Istanbul. The Byzantine and Christian museum is the one that can give visitors an understanding about this period of time and easily accessible. We could have skipped the museum and just visited the Byzantine churches, the interior of which are not of much interest. Thank you again for your comments are much appreciated and I am glad that you enjoyed the other four tours.

This Gourmet Walking Tour exceeded my expectations! I believe what made it so incredible was the personalized attention we received from our tour guide, Ana! From the moment we met her, she welcomed us to experience Athens with the same love she has for the city! Ana took us to several different types of eateries where we experienced a variety of Greek special pastries, cheeses, meats, veggies, wine and coffee. She spent so much time with us answering our questions with clarity and patience. My friend and I were so impressed with the positive relationships she developed with the shop owners. I highly recommend this tour and having Ana as your guide!!

We booked Angelos and were not disappointed. He tries to personalize each tour. We did a half day tour of Ancient Agoura and the Acropolis. He tells personal and charming stories as well as give insight into the ruins you are seeing. We recommend booking him to tour around rather than trying to figure it out on your own or going with a large tour.
