We had an amazing tour guide ( Costas ) a registered archeologist, well worth the money! A little warm even in the middle of November so be aware if you go during the summer time! Ware comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking and climbing to the site.
This tour surpassed our expectations. Vicki spent almost 4 hours with us and the climb to the top of the Acropolis was very managable because we took it in small portions. I loved walking through the National Gardens and seeing the changing of the guard. This was money well spent.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. We enjoyed the Metro station museum and all of the history it held. The walk was pleasant and leisurely until we actually had to climb the stairs of the Acropolis. But even then we took our time and there were many things to see on the way to the Parthenon. The view from the Acropolis was to die for and there were many interesting and historic sights to see. Our guide was very thorough in explaining each site. We enjoyed the history of Greece very much and put the city of Athens in perspective.
While my family and I often like to explore on our own I couldn't have been happier to take this walking tour as I would have missed all kinds of fascinating information. We had a small group and Costas was the BEST tour guide. He even managed for us to stop only in shaded places each time he had more to tell us about a certain site! I would highly recommend taking this tour if you want to cover some of the key spots in Athens with a knowledgable guide.
Our walking tours was fantastic! We had a very knowledgable guide, Aristotle, who gave information about the hisory of Athens as well as current issues. The tour was for 12 people only and the pace was such that everyone could keep up - even those with bad knees! We would recommend this o anyone.
Our guide Kostas was amazing. He was intelligent, funny, well-informed, and did a great job of dragging us through a surprisingly large slice of the city. We started out on the Acropolis tour, and were so impressed that we bought tickets for the museum tour afterward. I would recommend the combination to anyone interested in art, history, mythology, engineering, theater, or architecture.
This was by far the best thing I did in Athens. Our tour guide, Aristotle was FANTASTIC. This was an approximately 3.5 hour walking tour with a very small (10) group of people. If you like to walk, learn about history, and meet new people, this is the tour for you. It was awesome.
Excellent! On-time, informative, allowed us to gain perspective into the ancient sites as well as the modern social issues.
This was probably one of the BEST tours that I've ever taken. I got lucky, just the guide (Artemis Olympidou) and myself. Can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to take this tour. Artemis is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Athens and Greek history. Really learned a bunch from her. Thank you Viator, and especially Artemis for such an enjoyable tour!
Excellant tour,guide was very knowledgable,kept us out of the sun as much as possible, did not overload us with info, and left us impressed with the Acropolis.
Tour guide was excellent. He knew the subject and had a great personality as well. This tour involves a lot of walking, so be prepared.
This was a great tour and definitely one to do to orientate yourself around Athens. Our guide (if my memory is correct was Maria?) was excellent and provided a great deal of information along with anecdotes in a very easy to understand manner. The stops on the tour always had shady areas, expecially when we were ascending the Acropolis. Comfortable, supporting shoes are a must and plenty of water.
This was FABULOUS.... really excellent outstanding tour... great guide with incredible knowledge... 5 stars does it no justice... you must do this
This tour was an awesome introduction to the city of Athens and it’s history. Our guide, Aristotle, pointed things out that we would not have noticed if we had just been walking around the city ourselves, and really brought it to life. He even had a binder of photos of what the ruins originally looked like that really helped us understand how the temples have changed over thousands of years. He was very informative, had some great stories, and since we only had about 10 people in our group, he was able to fully answer everyone’s individual questions. He gave us more than enough time at each of the sites to take pictures and was even considerate enough to stop in shady areas for us to sit while he gave the tour. I highly recommend this tour if you are planning a trip to Athens!
The tour and the tour guide were fantastic. We just had 6 people in our group, so it felt as though we had hired our own private guide. She was very informative and gave us amble time to see the sites we visited. Do wear comfortable walking shoes.
Make sure you pack comfy shoes. This tour will take you to the main sights and the Acropolis. Amazing!
Great tour guide, she is so knowledgable and you can feel her passion towards her job.
Excellent; we were late but missed nothing. And we have to say that our guide, Constas, was brilliant - just the right amount of information and related well to us all. Definitely one to go on.
