Tour guide in Athens?

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!

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 - fayegeorgiou@yahoo.gr. 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.

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!
