We (3 couples) would like to do a half-day or maybe full-day tour in Athens to the main historic sites. Can anyone recommend an English-speaking tour guide? (We like to walk.) Thank you!
Here's a good site to find experienced Guides -- you get a very good idea of what they'll do for you , and the xperience they have
--- none of them are cheap, but since there will be 6 of you it doesn't average out to toomuch... and You can CUSTOMIZE your tour.
Thanks! Have heard of but never used Viator--but we have found it so worth while to hire a guide in a major city when we travel overseas. WIll check it out!
I suggest Faye Georgiou - firstname.lastname@example.org. She is listed in Rick's Greece guidebook and a fantastic local guide for Athens. I did her tour of the Acropolis, which was very good. She charges €50 an hour.
Faye was the local guide for our RS best of Greece-we loved her.
How about a FREE walking tour. It won't get you entrance to any sites or museum but will take you to the most important areas of Greece and if you want to do more exploring on your own you'll known where to go at a much lower price!
Thanks, everyone! We used Faye as our tour guide and she was fabulous! She helped focus us on the highlights of the museum--where one could easily be overwhelmed--and then took us to the Acropolis and connected the dots at the site. She was knowledgeable, clear, engaging, and fun to spend time with. I have recommended her to a colleague who will be visiting Athens soon, and would encourage visitors to book her for their tour!
