5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2017

Beautiful site, and when we arrived there were hardly any other people there. Our guide Eugenia was wonderful as well. We felt pampered having our own shuttle, and had as much time at the site as we liked.

This 1/2 day tour was amazing. We were promptly picked up at hour hotel by our tour guide from Siva Private Tours, Ioanna, and and our driver, Mike. The narration on the driving trip was just enough to make the one hour journey seem very short. We had ample time at the Temple and Ioanna walked us through the entire site and allowed some time to wander on our own. After a coffee at the cafe, we headed back to downtown Athens and our hotel, making an unplanned stop at a beautiful lake on the outskirts of Athens. We sere very pleased with Siva Tours
