Another fantastic tour through Viator and again very lucky to have Dimitra the Tour Guide for a third time!! Athens, while not being the prettiest city makes up for it with it's amazing and fascinating history!!! You'll get to see where the first Modern Olympics was held, the Temple of Zeus and one of the most amazing places you'll ever see The Parthenon perched perfectly atop the Acropolis!!! You will not be disappointed by this or any of the other tours!!!!!!!
Great tour for the price. We visited the Acropolis and Parthenon, toured the museum, learned a lot about the history. At end of tour, we were able to stay in Plaka and tour shops, eat and take in more sites. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave good history.
Got of to a late start because the lady wanted to wait on people who never showed, nice of her but was wondering what was going on. She new her stuff though and was a really nice lady.
Great tour. I seemingly saw everything there was to see in the heart of Athens.
Nice trip very informative ton Greek ancient culture, highly recommended
This was a great tour, the guide was very informative and made all the difference to the experience of seeing so much and understanding how it all fits together - amazing history, brought to life!
The museum was fantastic, a must do. One of the best museums we have ever seen. Without the guide we would have missed out on so much and especially the significance of its design and position in relation to the acropolis. Worth the money and saves you time.
Great tour- very efficient- hits all the highlights. The guide was great, and knowledgeable. Prepare to walk up to the acropolis, so if you have issues with climbing steep pathways, you may have an issue as the Acropolis is obivously the main attraction. This is just a side note- the buses can only go so far- it has nothing to do with the quality of the tour. I would recommend this tour to others who are in Athens for a limited time and want a great overview of the monuments and Greek mythology.
Highly recommended tour. Our guide and driver were very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly and it was time and money well spent. Looking forward to our next tour with Viator!
Love, love, loved it! Our guide Ekaterini, was simply delightful....very knowledgeable, with an engaging personality! She was always aware of the needs of the group. The Acropolis was breathtaking! The view of the city, amazing! Panathenian Stadium was exciting to see! I was in awe at the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus with those beautiful columns standing so tall. The tour bus was prompt on pick-up and extremely comfortable. We did a lot of walking, of course, but not at a fast pace. Plenty of time for pictures!! Athens is a memory now that I will treasure being able to experience.
This tour was awesome. The tour guide was great!! Learned so much. Since I am 65, I worked out and trained to do the climbing and walking on the tours and trip in general. It was a good thing!! Greece is not handicapped friendly. I am not being critical because I loved it. People do need to know that walking and climbing are apart of the tours. The heat is also a factor. I didn't turn on my air at home unless we were having company. This tour was my favorite. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The buses you are very comfortable!
So glad we managed this tour. Despite the strikes the guide managed to time the trip perfectly and we still managed to get everything in perfectly. Even the walk back into town as the bus wasn't allowed to enter the city led us to an interesting part of the city and we managed to enjoy Athen even more.
Excellent tour. Tour guide was wonderful and we couldn't ask for a better day. Thank you!
