We were fortunate to have a private tour of The New Acropolis Museum as well as the Parthenon and ancient city of Athens with Ariti. She is an outstanding young woman with an incredible knowledge and understanding of her city and country's history. She is incredibly proud of her ancestry and loves to share her knowledge. We loved that she is an energetic Greek modern passionate about her culture. we took nearly 4 hours of her time and loved every minute. Plus she put us onto Athens' best Gyros!

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

If you are on a cruise ship that docks at the port of Athens so you only have a few hours at your disposal and you want to make sure that you visit the highlights but avoid the crowds on the other hand.

A typical full day in Athens will include the Acropolis,the New Acropolis Museum, The Ancient Temple of Zeus, The Arch of Hadrian, The Ancient Agora, Plaka area and the flee market.

It sounds endless but we'll unfold the Greek history together without missing a glimpse of modern Athens and it's people.

I can pick you up from your hotel or your cruise ship by taxi or a mini van, drive to the center of Athens, visit the ancient marble stadium used for the first modern Olympic games in 1896. See the changing of the guards at the constitution square (syntagma) in front of the parliament, the Academy of fine arts, the University of Athens, the national library, the national garden, visit the temple of Zeus, the Arch of Handrian and of course the Acropolis of Athens with the masterpiece of Greek architecture, the Parthenon.

Arti is wonderful. Everything went perfect when she met me in Hydra for 4 hour tour. She is lovely, on time, knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. I am going to book with her again when I tour Athens. I recommend her very highly!

Ariti, is an excellent tour guide and her personality and experience made Athens and the Acropolis come alive. It is important to hire a licensed guide who can stay with you to explain the Acropolis and the museums and Ariti was perfect. She was flexible, adaptable, knowledgeable, and the pace of the tour was spot on. She deserves 6 or even 7 stars as a rating. Thanks for moving us seamlessly around Athens.

Ariti was fantastic!! Not only she was very knowledgeable and showed us the highlights of Athens but she took us to places which are known only by locals. She also recommended us the Athens night tour which was just amazing!!! We really had fun with Ariti and she helped us make a memorable vacation!!!

Ariti showed us the real Athens. She is very knowledgeable, and took us off the tourist path where we enjoyed great Greek Cuisine, and shopping. She is a fantastic guide and I would love to have her show us more of what Athens have to offer. Any one visiting Athens, hire her as your tour guide! You will not be disappointed.

Thank You, Ariti.

Ariti was a fabulous tour guide. My husband along with my parent's, who are in their 80's, enjoyed all the knowledge and history that Ariti shared with us about Greece. She met us at the dock at the end of our cruise and had a car waiting to transport us to our hotel. She paced our walk up to the top of the Parthenon so my parents would be able to make it at a nice leisurely pace. She was flexible to visit any of the sites that we wanted to see. We highly recommend Ariti! All our best to you!
