Very poor service and attitude of the company and tour.
Another great tour booked through Viator. Thanks!
Thank you to our guide, Costas, who was wonderful. He held our hands when we needed extra help and was a wealth of information.
Nothing is as you expect in Greece it seems: - The tour is advertised as customizable. Seems not. Viator said the only way to customize it is to cancel and book a different tour - The Panathinaikos Stadium tour isn't a tour. You stop in front. If you want to go in you pay extra and you're on your own - 'watch the fanciful Evzoni Guards' - you aren't allowed to get off the bus therefore hard to see them behind the crowds from the street - 'Continue with a pleasant short walk past Herodion and Dionysos Theater'. The theaters are somewhere up on the mountainside. The walk is along a road. All up, the tour description is extremely colorful. Reality is mostly sitting in the bus driving past sites. Not worth the extravagant description and price.
