All of the guides were knowledgeable, friendly, professional and experienced - our favorite was the cooking class with George, but all three Yannis's were great too! Nota's guided tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis museum was very informative and brought a lot of insight into the culture and history of Greek civilization, as well as current politics and social issues.

Thanks to all for making our trip to Athens very memorable!
