I’ve learned that when visiting historical sites, the experience is exponentially improved if a knowledgeable guide can highlight important facts and give context and background. Georgia was amazing! She gave our group of 6, including my 3 sons in their early twenties, an in-depth tour of Akrotiri. She gave us the perfect balance of history, details about the site itself, and information regarding what the archeologists have been able to piece together based on the findings-all in a very interesting and engaging manner. I highly recommend Georgia as a guide for anyone visiting Akrotiri!

We learned so much on this tour! Georgia was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She also posed many questions to us which was helpful in gaining a better appreciation of the site. She also did a great job of steering us away from the crowds while allowing us to enjoy the full experience.

Georgia gave us so much information. She made sense out of everything we were looking at and we felt that we could really picture Akrotiri at its height. The length of the tour was perfect. The fact that the excavation is under a roof was also a big plus as it was a very hot day with a cloudless sky. Thanks so much Georgia!
