We enjoyed this tour a lot and Barbara was great! She provided us with plenty of history that we both found very interesting. We were taken on the Metro to different locations, while we were able to view the ancient findings while building the Metro. Barbara had some wonderful large placards which were very helpful in the history of Athens. Going to Kerameikos, brought together all the ruins/monuments. We really enjoyed this tour and Barbara was an excellent guide.

Very knowledgeable guide. Had mix up for meeting location, but guide adjusted her schedule to accomodate me. Gave me opportunity to ask questions, take pictures, and still saw all the underground sites with excellent explanations.
