Amazing Acropolis

Sissy was our guide and she was exceptional. She brought to life the story of the Acropolis and what it was like in the days when it was being built. This tour gives you plenty of time to do the photography necessary to capture the beauty of this amazing place.

Excellent Tour! Excellent Guide!

Our guide, Eli, was fantastic. She brought ancient history to life for us, showing us the most important sites at the Acropolis and explaining the historical significance in a relevant way. We took the tour to the Ancient Agora afterwards and we both agree it was one of the highlights of our whole trip to Greece. Eli really helped us grasp how ancient Greece functioned as a city state and how their contributions have trickled down through Western Civilization to affect our daily lives. It was a fantastic tour.

Dear Jamie, we really appreciate your wonderful, heartwarming comments. Saying that Eli brought ancient history to life makes us very happy because this is all we are trying to achieve through the experiences we offer. All our guides are extraordinary, and Eli of course is no exception. We are also glad you were able to really grasp all the information provided, while having fun! Please visit us again soon for another entertaining activity.

great tour under heat wave
Jeeverlyn

The guide was very very informative and one can see that she is very enthusiastic. Even though it was a very hot day (there was a heat wave), she was always smiling and approachable, she tried to put us always under shades of trees (even though it seems impossible). It was a short, sporty, tour. Wear comfortable shoes, or better hiking shoes. Bring cold water, umbrella or a hat.

Thank you for your kind review! Even on extra hot days we always make sure that our guests feel comfortable are kept under shade and avoid the heat as much as possible. Thank you again!

I booked the tour the second time. Meeting point was like last year at the Fresko Yoghurt bar right below the acropolis. Entry fees are not includet so I had to pay there ... a know fact. Perfect choice for me, because they had as well the 5-day-save ticket including acropolic, ancient agora, roman agora, hadrians library, Keramikos in stock, so I could buy this ticket. Out tour guide was Hermes. He was very well informed, a great story teller, aswered our questions and was very caretaking. The acrocpolis and the agora are a must see. We had a great time and there was plenty of time for taking pictures and enjoying the great views. All in all I whould strongly recommend to take this tour. If you have time only for one tour - this is the right choice. And afterwards you should visit the new arcopolis museum. Don't forget to take with you enough water. Comfortable sport shoes are strongly recommended and mind your steps at the acropolis ... the stones are quite slippery.

Acropolis Tour

This is definitely a walking tour, so make sure to wear your tennis shoes or comfortable shoes. The time on viator was wrong, so we missed our tour but they were able to offer us a different tour to make up for it. Our guide was good but she rambled quite often about the same thing multiple times. Overall, not my most favorite tour we have done on this trip, but I still would recommend doing it.

This tour was great, my wife and I did the tour in May and it was not to hot so we enjoyed it very much. The guide that we had was great she had a lot of knowledge and was easy to speak to. Her English was really good and she always looked for shade while explaining things. I recommend the tour to all who visit Athens so they can get a thorough understanding of the Acropolis and all the buildings.

Our tour guide was excellent. She was very educated on the sites and history. She took the tour at the right pace, stopping enough to explain everything while not going at a breakneck speed.
