Excellent, well rounded Acropolis experience

We had an excellent tour of the Acropolis monuments and museum with Zeta. The check in was easy and well organised and the groups are limited to 14 people. Our walk up the Acropolis hill was a good pace, with lots of stops to discuss monuments that we definitely would have missed on our own. Zeta always made sure to find shade for us on the stops and we weren’t in the sun much on our walk up the hill. We went on the morning tour and it meant we were able to get up the Acropolis hill and around the temples at the top/Parthenon before it got very busy and hot which was excellent. The tour was very well paced and Zeta gave us a great balance of Greek mythology, history and architecture in a way that was interesting and easy to take in. Zeta took lots of pictures for us throughout the tour. The Acropolis museum was very interesting and really rounded off the visit where we were able to see more original pieces of the monuments and statues. There are not a lot of signs or descriptions in the museum so we really would have missed out without a guide. We had been debating whether or not to do a guided tour and I’m really glad we did because without a guide, you wouldn’t really know what monuments you’re looking at/their history and on our own we would have walked too quickly up the hill without the interesting stops which would have made the experience much more tiring and hot! I would definitely recommend this tour! Thank you Zeta!

Great tour with a passionate guide, Arthemis. We left early for the tour as it was going to be a hot and crowded day. Arthemis made sure everyone understood the history behind these ancient monuments. I highly recommend it!

Did the combo with Acropolis and Museum. Glad we did! The air conditioning in the museum was a lifesaver after the sweltering tour of the Acropolis! Dorina was an excellent guide and was engaging with our two kids (11 and 14). Knowledgeable and navigated us deftly around the tourists and other groups. We definitely recommend.

Avoid the swarms of tourists and have a leisurely walk through major attractions

The lines are no joke!!! This tour was amazing and our guide Kostas was great at taking us through the major sites while avoiding the rush of tourists and using the back entrance of the acropolis. He was very friendly and explained things well. We opted to add-on the museum tour which was completely worthwhile. This is the NEW acropolis museum which is much much better than the previous one that was abandoned in 2009.

Stelios, The tour guide was exceptional! he enhanced an already spectacular location with his extensive knowledge of history, culture and archaeology. The Parthenon was very busy but that’s to be expected in summer. Stelios found ideal places to stop and talk with us at length. We appreciated his brisk walking pace as opposed to some tours which plod along! The tour operator Athens Walks was very easy to work with and customer service oriented.

Very memorable tour. She was very friendly and really knew how to bring the tour to life. We were able to beat the cruise ship passengers and her 30 years experience really came through in her description of each of the monuments.

Dorina was an awesome guide. You really can’t appreciate, in my opinion, the acropolis, Parthenon, and particularly the museum without having someone there to teach you. Very well done tour and would do it again!

The tour was very interesting thanks to our amazing guide Kostas. He Knew very well the subject and was able to answer to our questions. He made the tour very interesting and was able to not only explain what we were seeing, but also the history of the sites we visited and of Athens.

This tour was a great supplement to touring the Acropolis and Acropolis Hill. We chose the option with the ticket ahead of time to save time. From start to finish communication was great and it was easy to find the meeting place. Our group was about 12 people which was perfect sized and we could hear perfectly thanks to the headsets. Our guide was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, I highly recommend using this company to enhance your visit.
