We have been to Athens, the Acropolis, and the Acropolis Museum several times before, but this time we took a tour with Onoufrios. It was fantastic. He does a wonderful job conveying the historical,
Archaeological, and linguistic importance of everything we saw. We loved It and couldn’t recommend him more. Will definitely be back to hire him for other tours.
Four of us booked Onoufrios for a 3 day tour of Athens and surrounding areas. He is extremely knowledgeable and truly a fun person to spend time with. Be sure to book the Corinth Canal day which included super driver, George. He treated us like royalty! Look no further. This is the guide that you want. Check out Onoufrios' website.
We hired Onoufrios for a private 1/2 day tour of the Acropolis and surrounding areas. He met us on time, and did an amazing job of keeping us away from the crowds while we toured. He was knowledgeable but more importantly, he was personable and so enthusiastic. Not only did he give us an excellent tour, he also suggested restaurants and other places to visit. Highly recommend!!
Onoufrious' expert commentary made our day in Athens as much about the people of ancient Greece as the architecture. He had a special way of conveying visual details to help us understand and retain the historical timelines. We also did his Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus and Nafplio Private Tour, which augmented and reinforced what we learned in Athens. Since we had heard numerous times "This is a replica--the original is in Athens", we squeezed the National Archaeological Museum Private Tour in on our last day. He found many interesting artifacts in a rather stody museum. Highly recommended.
During this outdoors tour (*we don’t enter any site), we’ll try to make some sense out of the ancient Greek religion and see how the ‘Twelve Gods’ and Greek mythology came to be the most influential in the world!
Among others, we’ll talk about the only human that ever visited the home of the Gods, a murderer who founded mankind's only universal event, someone who gave peacocks their special look, someone who could swallow lovers, someone who made a mother kill her son and the one who’s responsible for the most messed-up and ‘most R-rated’ myth you have never heard!
This beautiful building will give us the chance to talk especially about the stories of Athena and Apollo as well as the most important philosophers of the 5th century BC.
At yet another 19th century masterpiece we will talk about the Amazons and the most incredible myth involving Apollo's twin sister Artemis.
The Hellenic Parliament with the Presidential Guards is just the perfect place to talk about some of the most important symbols of ancient Greece.
The ancient Greek religion was all about nature! And here we will find out how important the animals were for the Greek gods and the people...
The stadium of the first modern Olympic Games is definitely the right place in Athens to talk about how those naked Games began.
One of the city's most romantic locations will be the backdrop for mythology's ultimate love story!
The naughty king of the Twelve Gods will then show us how and why Greece is really the beginning of Europe itself...
The old town features a unique monument for the god of wine, Dionysus, whom you definitely wouldn't want to mess with!
Greece's most famous hill hosted the most signigicant battle in the life of Athena, who overshadowed other male gods, including Poseidon and Ares, who was war-shipped in the adjacent hill.
Even the gods needed to rest at some point. Their drink was the nectar but ours could be a delicious cup of coffee.
