90 Minutes Kickstart Tour of Rome

Valentina was a very nice local to start our trip with. She found us easily considering the foot traffic. The hour and a half passed quickly.

Skip the Line: Acropolis & the Museum Tour

I was in Athens 2 days and I had a time crunch of seeing and doing as much as I can before my flight home.After doing a bike tour during the day and checking into my hotel I booked a private tour of the Acropolis and the Museum with Onoufrious.It simply was the best experience and time I had during my stay.Onoufrious’s friendliness and Knowledge of Greek History made me appreciate what I was seeing.He cared about my safety mentioning a few times that walking up the Acropolis can be very slippery and he had no problem taking pictures of me up there.I would and already have recommended him to friends that have booked their Greece trip.
