Iffi, our tour guide, was amazing and brought the city (that I’ve lived in for 2 years) to life. Wonderful experience - comprehensive yet compact - only 4 hours. Thank you! Highly recommend.

Alex is an amazing tour guide! As an archeologist, he is able to provide such great information. He is instructive but incredibly interesting - we felt like we were in the most interesting college course on ancient Greece. We took this tour at the end of our 2 week vacation visiting multiple Greek and Turkish sites around the Aegean, and it was the perfect way to sum up everything we'd seen. Even though this is listed as a Mythological Tour, Alex wove together history, culture, religion and mythology to help us really understand this amazing ancient city!

The guide was fantastic and we heard just as many stories from the ancient times as we were hoping for. Remember to bring a water bottle and a snack to have on the go as there are no stops.
