Athens tour guides oriented to children.

Our group of five (three generations) includes an eight-year-old. We are looking for a tour guide or tour that is oriented to children's interests and attention spans. I found "Kids Love Greece" on TripAdvisor. Does anyone have experience with this group? Has anyone had experience with a private guide that was good with children? We will be in Athens August 18, 19 and 20, 2018. We would like to schedule someone now per Rick Steves recommendation; however, although he lists private guides he recommends, he does not say which is better for kids. Thanks in advance.

Hi Edward! Look here: https://tourguides.viator.com/Listing.aspx?Country=Greece&Region=Attiki&City=Athens Viator has an extensive listing of licensed pvt guides in Athens, and what's so good is the background: Each guide explains himself/herself... their training, credentials, interests, specialties, ALSo their hourly rates for various group sizes AND (very importantly) reviews -- you can scroll thru the lists looking for reviews that talk about how a guide gets children engaged & enthusiastic. I myself haven't used them, (I'm a nerdy Graecophile D-I-Y) but I have recommended this source for many newbies, who've thanked me afterwards.
