Our guide, Despina Savvidou, was the best! The tour started immediately right inside the train station were we met with incredible artifacts unearthed during the station's construction. Despina kept us on schedule and made sure we were at the right place at the right time...like seeing the changing of the guard at the Greek Parliament House. Our walk through the "gardens" was very pleasant and enjoyable. Despina's knowledge about the area and ancient customs made everything come alive. Seeing the Acropolis was incredible, but walking the other areas (like Zeus Temple), rounded out the experience and made for an excellent tour. I would highly recommend this walking tour which feels more like a leisurely stroll that takes you into the Acropolis via "the back door".
