Fantastic historical tour. The guide was an archeologist and clearly extremely educated and experienced on the ancient city. She tailored her questions and information both to myself (someone who's interested and reads history) and my younger kids, who were interested but might not have had as much experience. Couldn't recommend more for history buffs!

I only had one specific day and time that I was able to go to Akrotiri and Georgia was already booked for the time I wanted to go. She knew how badly I wanted a guided tour of this site and she didn’t have availability so she helped me locate another guide who could accommodate my needs. Without her help I would not have been able to visit the site because we had another tour booked in the afternoon. We got to Akrotiri when it first opened and had the entire area to ourselves! Georgia waved to us from a distance as we were getting ready to leave the area and she was getting ready to start her tour with the others she was pre-booked with. I am so grateful for her assistance on helping me get the opportunity to see the prehistoric city!!

We had an excellent experience with Georgia as our guide in Akrotiri. She gave a lot of great information on what we understand about the city and showed us pictures of the art that was found in the various buildings. It was also a great way to visit the site with kids - they told me it was one of the best experiences of the whole trip!
