Walking Tour of Athens

, Aug 2019
Though we were unable to take the six hour walking tour because of our cruise time restraints, Viator took the time to put a three hour tour together, and it was FABULOUS! Our tour guide Elena was very knowledgeable and patient, taking the time to answer our questions with respect to each of our stops (changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Queen's Garden, Olympic Stadium, Zeus Temple, Acropolis) and life in Athens. She knew so much about it's history!! She was conscientious of our five year old granddaughter and made it fun for her as well. We were able to stop at a lovely cafe/restaurant along the way in the most beautiful and quaint setting, the food was phenomenal!! I apologize but I forgot to ask Elena for the translation of the name. Elena (a beautiful person with a beautiful soul) inspired us to return to Athens and we will on our 40th anniversary, just three years away! Thank you again Elena and Viator!!

Thank you so much for your kind words. Elena also was so happy to meet you all! Her name has two meanings according Greek Mythology, one is Selene that means moon and the other is the woman who burns the ships from Helen of Troy. We hope that you had a grear time in Greece. And we hope to see you again in Athens
