What people are saying about Thiseio

This is a must do in Athens. My daughter and I met another mother and daughter and had a wonderful evening with an amazing view of the Parthenon and surrounding neighborhood. Our wine sommelier was very knowledgeable about all the regions and wines of Greece. The wines are very under appreciated as I found them comparable if not better than the wines in France and Napa California. After the sunset it’s a wonderful neighborhood to stroll around in and stop in a few bars playing music and talk to the very gracious and friendly people of Athens.

A big thank you to our guide Vassia who made us discover the monuments in a very interesting way thanks to the many myths told. The visit was fluid, rhythmic, very pleasant and perfectly orchestrated by our guide who perfectly mastered his subject. We recommend 100%!
