This tour is good for those who have a short time in Athens. It gives a very good overview of the City's main attractions even though most of the time is spent at the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum if you include it in your tour. We were picked up at the hotel on time and Angelina who met us in the hotel lobby was very sweet and pleasant to be with. The guide (Eustaf (?), I think) was knowledgeable, professional and passionate about the City of Athens and its sights. He was extremely sensitive to the needs of each person in the group and this made us quite relaxed to actually enjoy the sights. I have physical health issues and was apprehensive about doing this tour but he made it quite easy for me to take my time and I did not miss out on anything, especially when climbing up the hill to the Acropolis. I was somewhat disappointed that we were not able to stop at some of the other sights for a few minutes to take pictures since the coach was moving at quite a fast pace when passing some of these sights. It felt more like an Acropolis tour instead of a Sightseeing tour of Athens. It is what it says :"Sightseeing" so if you want to stop at these attractions do so on your own. Wear proper shoes for the climb up to the Acropolis because many of the stones get very slippery on the way up. If not, watch where you place your feet as you go up the hill. My friend and I got very tired by the time we got to the Museum and we had to sit outside and wait for the group to get our ride back to the hotel. If you are not physically fit, do the museum tour separate. Nevertheless, I would recommend this tour. It is worth the money and Viator always delivers. Viator, you made my trip to Athens a pleasurable and stress free vacation, I was always able to reach one of your agents by phone, whether in Canada, the United Kingdom or in Athens. The tour company was very helpful and delivered. Thanks again. Looking forward to my next vacation with your tours.
Our tour guide was excellent! The tour was very informative and we LOVED the new Acropolis museum.
This tour was well worth its very reasonable price. Great logistics, i.e. timely pick-up from our hotel and a comfortable bus with great AC. Our guide was top notch. She had a very solid grasp of all of the Grecian history. She was passionate and wonderfully demonstrative. She provided excellent historical context, tying-in information from other tours on Mykonos and Santorini.
Very wel executed!
The bus collected us from our hotel and the guide was excellent and was very knowledgeable about the Acropolis, and surrounding area. We were delivered back to the hotel after the tour.
Fantastic tour. The tour covered all that we had planned for. It was very organized and efficiently run. Our guide was great.
Tour guide Dorina was excellent, she shared the history and brought The Acropolis to life. Highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Athens.
The tour guide was terrific, very knowledgeable about all sights we saw. The pick up was on time and everything worked like clock-work.
This was an informative, educational, memorable and fun day. The guide was very knowledgable. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Our tour guide was so incredibly knowledgeable and funny, we loved our tour. My husband still tells everyone she had an encyclopedic mind. This was our 3rd or 4th Viatour and by far the best.
Athens is an amazing city, and to hear the historical details, lots of them, was amazing. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Highly recommend this tour guide and tour. Too bad we can't remember her name, but she was great. Our other Viatours don't measure up.
Great tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and we were even able to hit all the spots of tour even during the day before their Independence Day. Streets were being closed because of a nearby parade, but the tour went on as planned and everything worked out great.
A great tour. Our guide was SUPER in explaining the history of the area.

Awesome day. Walked up all the steps to see the one of the world's most famous structure. Beautiful weather in October, best time to visit. Less tourists. Great views of Athens at the top of the hill. Make sure to walk the whole parameter to see the different views of Athens.
Excellent tour guide who is an archeologist so had much information. Very informative. Lots of walking uphill at Acropolis.
This was a good tour but should be done on the first day. We did on the second day and we had already seen some of the sites. However the visit to the Acropolis was spectacular and our guide was amazing and so very knowledgeable. The new museum is an amazing building, so light and airy and the guide made it come alive for us. We would urge folk to check wether they really need to be picked up from their hotel or are happy to walk to starting hotel. We opted for pick up and had to be up nearly an hour before we needed, when we realized the start hotel was only a 10 minute walk from us. Thanks Di and George
A very good half day tour for the main attractions of Athens.

This was an excellent tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed it a lot.
