Very competent lecturer.

We had a wonderful guide,
Evangelos, who escorted us through the New Acropolis Museum. He was very knowledgable and made sure to talk to all tour members. He shared fascinating insights into Greek culture, especially the swirling controversy surrounding ownership of Greek antiquities. Excellent!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2012

Had a great guide. Didn't know when I bought ticket this would be included. Unfortunately, I had to wait many hours before I could be admitted to the museum. Thought I was buying ticket to avoid line which there was none.

You really need a guide with knowledge when you visit such a museum as this. We scored such a guide, it was obvious the guide had studied this era and was well informed and approachable to explain finer points. You can after the tour go back and look again at the points and issues the guide raised and really absorb the information the guide brought to light.

The guide spoke beautiful English and was extremely knowledgeable in Greek history and art history. We would definitely book through Viator again.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2015

The tour guide was excellent. We got much more out the tour with the background and context provided by the guide. An hour and half seemed like enough time but it was rushed. You can stay as long as you want in the museum but it would have been nice to have the guide for a longer time.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

Very satisfactory, no complaints. Excellent guide.
