Irene brought the Acropolis to life!
Margaret_S
, Jun 2022
We never expected the level of detail and knowledge shared on our tour. She brought a depth of knowledge and appreciation of what we were looking at as an archeologist. She shared the significance of what we were looking and why we should view it as such. She then went beyond the tour and assisted us with a taxi afterwards. Thank you, Irene, for an unforgettable experience and the kindness to take care of us along the way.

Great tour and tour guide did a nice job. Disappointed to find that they sell tickets to the museum at three times the going rate before the tour. Advise just purchasing when you arrive.

We were short on time as we had an afternoon flight to Santorini, so this was the perfect way to get in and not only see the Acropolis and the Museum, but we were able to appreciate the history and knowledge associated with it.

This was a great tour that I would recommend to family and friends. Our guide was an expert and took the time to answer questions. She also took the time to get to know the different group members, which helped tailor the experience. We loved that she was interactive as well, asking us questions here and there instead of just talking at us.

Informative tour with a good outdoor and indoor experience. Wear a hat, but hold on to it if on windy days! Sunscreen is a must. The views are great. Our guide, Dafni, was very kind and knowledgeable. The museum is a fantastic way to learn more while being indoors and in a climate controlled environment.

Jenaro_W

Hermes, our amazing guide, was a welcomed blend of historical professor and approachable friend. He made it easy to ask questions about what was most curious to us. He also balanced the dynamics of personalities in a group setting. This was an amazing tour and would totally recommend this to anybody.

We are absolutely thrilled to read your amazing review, dear Jenaro! Thank you for all your lovely comments; Hermes will be elated! Please join us again soon, and have a wonderful day!

Enjoyable tour to fascinating ruins and museum.

Seeing the acropolis in person is an amazing experience, and the guide's background information contributed to the tour. The climb is a little strenuous for older people, and the guide could have gone a bit slower.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for your feedback, Russell. We are glad you enjoyed your experience at the Acropolis and the museum. Our guides usually walk at a fairly moderate pace, in order to accommodate everyone, and make regular stops at shady spots. Of course, we do have private options available where you can set the walking pace of your choice, as well as the duration of the tour. We hope to see you again soon. Have an amazing day!

I've seen images of these monuments all my life. To finally see them in person was a rewarding experience. And our guide (Kaula?) brought history back to life. Bravo!

Incredible tour, well worth it!
Dianne_B
, May 2022
We did the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum Tour and it was amazing. Such well preserved history. Katia was our guide and she was extremely knowledgeable. We had an inquisitive group with lots of questions and she was able to answer them all. There was a lot of walking but Katia stopped often, in shade when possible, to explain different features of the tour. We have done many tours and this one stands out!
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Standing out is something we love to hear, dear Dianne! We are grateful for your kind and crisp feedback! Your review means a lot to us, and we certainly hope to make your next visit just as positive or even better! Have an amazing day!

Excellent tour. Bring your walking shoes! Our guide (Kostas K.) was knowledgeable and passionate about the Acropolis. He was patient with regard to questions. Going through the museum with a guide helped explain both the exhibits and the design of the museum. Well worth the time and price.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
We greatly appreciate your kind words about the tour, and about Kostas, dear Richard; sharing your thoughts means the world to us, and feedback like yours gives us the motivation to improve even more. We really hope to make your next visit just as positive! Until then, stay safe, and have an amazing day!

I need to paid again because I can print my ticket and the office doesn’t want to print from my invoice
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
We cannot help but wonder what exactly you mean, dear Guest. It is highly unlikely that we would have asked you to pay twice for the same service, let alone for printing or not printing a document! We are sure there has been a huge misunderstanding, which we will do everything in our power to solve. Please be kind enough to contact us with more details, explaining the situation, and we will be more than happy to assist you. We are very sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us, although our guest satisfaction rate is very high. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Engaging and knowledgeable Acropolis tour
Diana_M
, Apr 2022
Our tour guide, Eli, was super knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting stories about Acropolis. She kept our entire group engaged and answered all of our questions. I enjoyed the fact that she would ask us questions about our prior knowledge and she was very detailed in her explanations. A great story teller and I enjoyed the pace of this tour. I highly recommend Eli and this tour! Acropolis is a wonderful and unbelievable place.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Eli is very pleased with your lovely, rewarding comments, dear Diana, and so are we! All our guides are amazing storytellers who share their love for history and mythology with our guests! We are delighted we were able to make this experience so interesting and enjoyable for you. We hope to host you again soon, and until then, stay safe and keep exploring wonderful places!

Good guide, challenging technology
AnnLarie_V
, Apr 2022
The guide was friendly and informative. Good if you like a quieter, calmer guide. Unfortunately, the listening devices were challenging with lots of static which made listening to her less comfortable.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Ann, thank you for your valuable feedback. Actually, it is the first time we receive a comment about the earsets. Our guides, instead of informative and friendly, they're also helpful and proactive, since they always keep a couple of extra earsets with them in case something goes wrong. You should have talked to her; she would have given you a new pair. However, we will of course look into it right away, and we appreciate you bringing this into our attention. Thank you once again, and we hope that next time you will fully and uninhibitedly enjoy your experience with us! Until then, stay safe and keep traveling to beautiful places!

Good but not great
Tashi_N
, Apr 2022
The guide was a bit too haphazard.. she shared a lot of stories about Greek mythology but in the end we were left wondering with some very basic questions like wwho actually built the Parthenon and how did people use it at that time?
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Tashi, thank you for your feedback, which came as a huge surprise to us! You cannot really talk about ancient Greek history without talking about mythology; these two are closely interwoven. The entire Parthenon is decorated with mythological scenes, and a guide talking about Greek mythology cannot but also explain about the buildings. We find it almost impossible to believe that one of our guides, who are as experienced as well-educated and passionate did not mention such important information like when or why the Parthenon was built. We looked into it right away and discovered that you indeed had a booking with us on April 4, but you never showed up. Could it be possible that you perhaps joined a different company? We would love to hear from you in order to resolve this the soonest possible, so please drop us a message with more details. Thank you once again for your comments, and we hope that the next time you actually join us, you will form an entirely different opinion! Until then, stay safe!

Impressive but limited access
Babi_A
, Mar 2022
The guide was very knowledgeable and approachable, the place is clearly impressive, but there was a lot of construction and very little access inside any of the important monuments
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Dear Babi, thank you for your feedback. We are glad you liked both the Acropolis and your guide. The monuments on the Acropolis hill are more than 2000 years old. They are also constantly exposed to weather conditions (heat, rain, etc.) all year long, and therefore regular conservation is required. However, even on maintenance days, our guides go above and beyond to make them accessible and visible to our guests, and they share all their knowledge in order to bring them back to life with vivid storytelling. We hope to see you again in beautiful Athens. Stay safe and keep traveling!
