You can't go to Athens and not get a tour of the Acropolis. Sure you can do it on your own but its so much better to have a knowledgeable and friendly person taking you through the Acropolis and its awesome museum and really explaining things in detail. Our guide was super friendly and excited to answer our questions and dig deeper into Ancient Greece and all of her wonders and history. She took us to the Panathenaic Stadium first and a short tour around the inner section of Athens, then we went up to the Acropolis and spent plenty of time there to get a good history of the site and take plenty of photos with the amazing views on top of the rock. We ended the tour in the Acropolis Museum which was spectacular and much better having someone explain what we were looking at in great deal. I couldn't recommend this tour more highly for people visiting Athens.
More than perfect to have an idea about history and how to explore the whole area. Don't miss Acropolis Museum.
The guide was excellent. The new museum was great. The Acropolis was magnificent.
My first full day in Athens had to begin with the Athens half day tour, simply because if anyone is coming to Athens, then it would stand to reason that they are there to visit the Acropolis. Our tour guide was excellent, and gave details and a little history into everything we passed that was of some importance. The Acropolis and the museum, of course, were the highlights of this trip, and the reason I was there, and wish now I had also booked the Acropolis night tour. I don’t think that this needs to be your first time visit to Athens though to enjoy the tour, and I would certainly go again. I would advise the wearing of shoes with good grip on the soles, as when you are in the Acropolis, (which by the way is NOT the temple that you see, but everything within the walls), you will find that the path can be very slippery and uneven. There is a refreshment bar near to the entrance.
Once you have visited the Acropolis, the next stop is the museum, where no photography is allowed at all, until you reach the top floor. On approach to the entrance, you will walk across a glazed floor and look down onto excavations and see the mosaic decorated floor of ancient Roman ruins. This extends well into the museum itself, and again, you will be walking on glass.
Fantastic half day that gives you an introduction into ancient Greece.
We enjoyed this tour very much. The guide was informative and told the history of Athens and the sights we were seeing in a concise and entertaining manner. The Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum were amazing and well worth seeing.
It was a great experience! My guide was very knowledgeable and that make every step in the museum and the Acropolis much more fun! Also the guide was very friendly. Really enjoyed the tour.
That was a worthwhile and informative trip. Our guide had a great personality and we learned a lot about the Acropolis hill, the Parthenon and the museum. We also saw many other sights in the city of Athen so I highly recommend this trip.
Review by Maria, June 2012
It was simply amazing, the whole museum was packed full with statues and other historical items. The gift shops had many nice things to buy and were quite educational. The cafes had a nice view and an outside area, great for summer. The tickets were fairly priced and you could read about each historical item in English as well as Greek. Museum was so new and design was simply unbelievable, I will definitely go there again!
Wonderful tour with an informative guide who spoke English perfectly. She kept our interest throughout and made the day go by in a positive and lasting way. We saw Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum (which was an option that I highly recommend). If you have to take one tour in Athens, this should be it! Pleasingly informative and enjoyable!
This was a very useful tour for the first time visitor, as it provided orientation of the main city sights aboard the coach, as well as extensive visits to the Acropolis and the new Acropolis Museum. Our guide was very well-informed about all aspects of the tour, and provided fascinating detail during the visits to the Acropolis and the Museum.
We had a great time at the Acropolis and museum. Our guide was extremely informative.
Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the ancient sites. The tour of the acropolis, the Parthenon and the new Acropolis museum was amazing! The bus picked us up at our hotel and was on time.
This was our first time in Athens, and our fist tour. My wife and I are 65+ but we enjoyed this tour and our wonderful guide. She took her time explaining the sights on the Acropolis in the shade. We were there June 14th and it was a very warm day. We took the morning tour, and were glad we were not there in the afternoon. Our guide was very good talking about the Parthenon and when she took us for about 1 and 1/2 hours to the Acropolis museum. This was a well designed tour that got one familiar with the ancient areas of Athens. The hotel bus pick up and drop off worked well for no increased fee and was a bonus. I recommend this tour highly.
Very knowledgeable and pleasant guide who spoke perfect English and gave great insight about the Acropolis, museum, and city. Although Athens is small and energetic people could skip a tour, if you would rather see everything easily consider this tour.
Great introduction to the city of Athens. Fabulous tour of the fabulous new Acropolis Museum. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, informative and passionate about her city.
