""Many of the restaurants were incredible choices. I would highly recommend this experience." Aaron L."

SD General review 2

"One of the best highlights of my trip! My guide was amazing, she showed me all of the Ancient Olympic workouts, and had me try each one. We then went to the Olympic Stadium, where I ran around the field. At the end she gave me a card with all of my times for each event. This was a great tour, and I highly recommend for any Olympic Fan, or individuals looking for a unique tour experience in Athens."

David M

"The tour was cozy, comfortable and well organized. Before the tour, I expected a boring driving to the temple but the highlight stop-overs selected by our local guide made this driving enjoyable. At the temple, we had plenty time to explore and admire the view before the grandeur finale, the sunset at the temple, which has become the most dazzling experience of mine."
