Really good tour highlighting some of the most important attractions of Athens city centre. Recommend it for your first day to get your bearings. Concludes on top of the Acropolis, allowing as much time up there as you please. Ticket gives you entrance into many other locations once tour is over.
Mariana, was very good . Her commentary was clear and interesting and she conducted the party
on the route very well.
It might be an idea to not climb up the Acropolis at midday. Would this not be better timed at the start
of the tour, when cooler ?
Our tour guide was amazingly informative, engaging, patient and funny. Thank you so much Irene.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable! Would have liked to have seen more of the gardens.
We had a great time on the walking tour and it was nice to be able to see other parts of Athens in addition to the Acropolis. The tour provided a great introduction to the various archaeological sites around the Acropolis that allowed us to understand and appreciate them better. The tour guide was informative, but I wish he would have gone more in depth on the tour as I felt there was a lot of dead air time that he could have better filled with more facts and information. All in all, we enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.
Good tour- guide was lovely and very knowledgable.. Would recommend this tour
Very good tour, the guide was very informative and entertaining.
Great tour, in a logical sequence and taking in the main ancient highlights. Enthusiastic guide - he could have had a bit more in depth knowledge though. We used the iPads at the acropolis, which were an absolutely fantastic experience.
This tour was awesome, but please prepare to do a lot of walking so wear the appropriate shoes/sneakers. Our guide Aristotle was amazing and very informative!!!!
A well organised and insightful tour, covered all the main areas and some others I was not expecting. Value for mobney
Great tour, lots of interesting info and animated host. Great getting some local knowledge about the ancient sites.
My son and I enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide Kostas was very knowledgeable and he knew his history of all the major sites. The number in the group was a good size so we didn't get lost in a big tour. We covered off the major archaeological sites in the downtown area of Athens in a quick time. Good to give you all the information that you needed to understand the myth vs reality of these sites.
This was hot very little shade available. Tour guide was great. Would have been good to know about the extra €12 entry fee.
We enjoyed the Acropolis Walking Tour with a good, informed guide and a nice small group of visitors from different parts of the world. During the tour we had short halts to understand History, background and historic facts which was presented by our guide in a quick to understand format. We halted in shades, under trees while listening to historic facts and respite from the Mediterranean sun:) The Acropolis was quite different from what we expected, as there are more ruins than actual gods and temples. But the tour is useful to get a good first hand understanding of the Hellenic Republic and its people.
The tour guide had a great sense of humor and a lot of energy...was a fun tour!
Great tour to get an insight into the most important historical sites of Athens within a morning. The tour guide really makes the history come alive and provides very interesting information that we would have missed had we gone walking on our own. Make sure to take sunscreen and walking shoes. There are regular stops for drinking water.
I enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. I only wish it had been more focused on the ancient sights, as we spent about a third of the tour in Syntagma. Our guide was very thorough and knowledgeable, and the 3 hour tour was just the right amount of time.
