Traveler Tips


  • "It's definitely better to go at 4PM since it's cooler at that time and there's a great breeze at the top." See review
  • "The paths were quite slippery in some areas, so it was a challenge to get to the top." See review
  • "Beware as there is a good amount of walking to do but that’s the case with the ruins in general, not just This tour." See review

Dorina was very knowledgeable. She had interesting stories and pictures to show us. Going for this tour at the end of the day was tough, however the weather was quite tolerable. Also it was less crowded than a morning tour would have been. Definitely worth the time and money

Dorina with walk Athens is an awesome guide. Was able to explain the significance of acropolis and Parthenon to athens. Though it is a long way up it was just a breeze with her with all the information she was giving us. The afternoon tour is likewise better since the heat was manageable.

Our guide Stelios was amazing. Gave tons of great insight and information. He was very kind to make sure all of our stops were in the shade (except for the top where there is no shade). He was very helpful and understanding, our daughter struggles in the best so he did his best to make sure she was ok. I would give more than 5 stars if possible, great company and awesome guide!!

Tour covered what we expected with this site. Was bit busy getting going as a few tours in other languages left at meeting point at same time. This often caused us to have to wait for these to move on for guide to explain what we were seeing. Overall a good tour.

Great trip to the acropolis, you get to skip the line and get a knowledgeable guide. The tour covers all the important places in the acropolis, not the museum.

our guide was outstanding. The morning tour was very crowded but she was able to navigate expertly. I would probably choose the evening tour in hindsight to avoid the cruise ships.

Magda our tour guide made this a memorable and enjoyable experience. Her wealth of knowledge made the tour stellar. We learned a great gift of information from her on Greek mythology and Greek history. It was a perfect time to view the Acropolis. I recommend this tour to all. Be sure to request Magda. (Wear comfortable shoes)

Stunning from a Distance - More so up Close

Anna was most knowledgeable and friendly. Her descriptions helped bring to life what Greek life was like in the time the Acropolis was built. The views from the top are amazing! Note that this isn’t the easiest place to get to, there are lots of stairs, steeply sloping sidewalks and gravel paths, and patches of ancient marble walkways that have been worn slick over the centuries. It was also 95 degrees in Athens the day we went to the top so bring water (you can buy it for 0.50 at the machines just to the left after you pass through the entrance gate), take your time, and enjoy the experience.

Our tour guide, Dionesus (sp?), was superb at balancing historical knowledge with entertaining anecdotes! He took his time on the way up, pacing our ascent with carefully selected shady stops to share his wisdom about the site. This late afternoon tour saved us from the hot Athenian sun!

Very knowledgeable guide who gives the long version of many of the stories and history of the area. Not for people who want a quick tour.

Our Guide,Theodora, was extremely well informed, animated and even others at the Acropolis hung around our group tour to hear her explanations. Would absolutely use this company again.
