These tours were actually two individual tours. The morning tour was the Acropolis Walking Tour and the Cape Sounion Tour was in the afternoon.
The Acropolis walking tour was very interesting visiting a number of old temples, culminating in walking up the Acropolis to see the Parthenon. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained facts very clearly referring to visual aids from time to time. Can recommend very much.
The Cape Sounion Tour was also very interesting seeing the Temple Of Poseidon and also the views from it. The coach journey was about 1 3/4 hours each way. Maybe this tour could be combined with another to form a full day tour, since 75% of the tour time was taken up in travelling.
My tour was upgraded to the tour of the Acropolis and the New Acropolis museum, then I was switched to the afternoon Cape Sounion tour. Both guides were very knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend these tours.
First tour walking to Acropolis was interesting, the guide (sorry I didn't catch her name) was informative and knowledgeable. The afternoon trip to cape Sounion was really good, it was interesting to see all the villas in the suburbs, the beaches and so on. Good guide Daphne, gave us all the informations on the way.
Not enough people signed up for the Acropolis walking tour so they upgraded me to the Athens sightseeing tour which included more. It turned out great, Daphne, my tour guide was outstanding. She also did Cape Sounion which was actually relaxing after seeing so much of Athens in the morning.
The morning Acropolis tour with our guide stathis was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and the trip to the new museum was great as well.
The trip to Cape Sunion was beautiful, but we were exhausted by the morning trip and most of slept till we reached the temple of Poseidon. The commentary at the temple by our guide was good as well.
A very interesting and informative tour. We really enjoyed both our guides for the morning and afternoon tours, and they gave us loads of information regarding the sites as well as the history and mythology behind them.
This tour was great! The tour guide was very informative and gave clear information about how the tour would proceed. And he was very good about taking frequent stops on the walk up to the Acropolis to give us a break (in the shade) and a short history lesson. I would highly recommend this tour.
And like the info says - be sure to wear sturdy shoes. The marble flagstones on the way up to the Acropolis are surprisingly slippery. Be sure to bring water, as there is none for sale once you enter the Acropolis area and you will need it!
Sorry for delay, we coudn't respond earlier since we just have returned from our long Europe trip.
The above tour was informative and we could get interesting information.
At the same time we would like to say that your advertisement was misleading and trickery. It was mention that this tour is 10% cheaper but indeed all of us have been asked to pay extra 12 euro for the tickets to get Acropolis. Please pay attention to the name of this tour: "Acropolis Walking Tour"!!!! We coudn't expect that the tickets are not included into the tour prise. That is why we think that is unfair and acted generaly wrong on the tourist market.
Our guide for the acropolis walking tour was fantastic, she was courteous and patient with everyone in the group. She was very knowledgeable. While the Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon tour was a beautiful drive, the tour itself was less than amazing. The tour guide was nice, but seemed like a bit of a rush to get the tour over with...but I would still recommend for the drive and sites.
The Athens tour was spectacular! Tks for tracking us down at our hotel to meet up with the group. Our guide was full of wonderful insights she was amazinf. It was a tour for the gods!
Sounion tour we shldve opted out as we only had 1 day n would've rather explored the city further. Tks again
We ended up not doing the walking tour but the bus tour instead which we thoroughly enjoyed and then had the same guide in the afternoon to Cape Sounion. Guide was very good on both tours.
I don't believe they actually do the walking tour; beware they will just "upgrade" you to the bus tour; which they did to me. Of course it is hard to complain about seeing the Acropolis; it is beautiful to see no matter how they get you there and you do see more of the city and stop at the olympic stadium and go through the museum. The description of the walking tour on this site is not the same that they have onsite. I mentioned missing seeing all the churches and they said that is not part of the walking tour but it is clear on this website? I also had to pay additional money for my entrance fee to the Acropolis and the Museum; which I probably only needed for the museum; so I felt a little taken advantage of. The tour guide was great and very knowledgable; you don't get as much free time as stated in the walking tour (about 40 minutes). The Cape Sounion tour was also nice; long 1 1/2 hour drive along the coast (beautiful) to see the site that takes about 15 minutes to walk around. They have a nice patio with bar service so it is actually a nice way to end the day with a drink looking up at the the Temple of Poseidon and the Agean Sea.
I was confused when told thee wasn't a walking tour but was a driving tour and we had to pay for entry into the Acropolis and museum while all of the others the cost was included. I'm not sure the drive from a hotel to the Acropolis was worth the cost of the tickets. The Cape and Temple was what I paid for.
