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.

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.

While we had some difficulty finding the tour guide, the walk through the museum was great. I would recommend this. We later walked up to the acropolis and had a better understanding of the entire infrastructure because of this tour.

The tour and the guide were very good. No need to skip the line because there wasn't one. But we greatly enjoyed the tour's overview and expertise.

We loved the front of the line tour in English, as it allowed us to quickly and efficiently see the most important exhibits in the time we had. Our tour guide was also very good.
It would have been helpful if the website had initially indicated the time of the tour (11:45 am) so we knew this in advance. This is the only time during the day this tour is given, fyi. When we arrived at the museum, at first it appeared that no one knew of our tour. Given this, it might be helpful if the tour guide or someone else followed up with us and/or the museum ahead of time so they were expecting us when we arrived. As it was, we were not sure we were at the correct location until the guide showed up about noon (15 minutes after they were due per our receipt).

The museum is fantastic but the tour was mediocre. The tour guide was informative but the group was too big to hear everything and at the end we just looked around at our own pace. We also had to wait 20 minutes for the tour because it was an extention of an earlier tour at the acropolis and they were running late. It is probably better to actually do a tour directly with the museum.

The museum was great, unfortunately the guide was far too condescending.

when visiting this city this musuem is a must! we were waiting for our guide who missed us at the point of meeting, the staff at the museum quickly found our guide and we had the rest of the time together. some confusion as to the meeting spot. 4 people were left waitng for 20 minutes! perhaps the guide needs to check off the list.

Our guide was very friendly and enthusiastic. However, it was often difficult to comprehend what she was trying to explain with her English. We may have done better with a headset tour in English.

This was 50 minutes and not 75 as indicated. As we were on a group ticket it wasn't easy for us to move independently around the Museum because we weren't given our own tickets and there were guards (for instance to go to the cafe). The guide could have said more about the most important aspects.

A bit rushed. Because I joined an existing group lots of references made to things that group had done or discussed.

Didn't like being charged extra for access to museum country to the terms of the original purchase agreement. Tour guide was good however there were way tommy people on the tour and it became impersonal and difficult to hear/see the communication fr the guide

The tour guide seemed to be very rushed. It was almost like she wanted to get us through the museum as fast as she could and get on to her next meeting. The museum was very nice. I've been told several times that if you're going to tour something, it's well worth a tour guide. Not here.

The group was very large and it was impossible to hear the guide speak unless you stood very close together, which was very hot. I have no idea if she had good knowledge or information so we dropped out of the tour.

The Acropolis Museum was very interesting and well worth seeing but the tour was disappointing. Everyone needs to queue to go through the security checks on entering the museum so no time was saved there. We didn't need to queue to buy tickets so we saved a little time (short queue) but the tour guide was half an hour late arriving so we had a long wait. No-one in the museum knew anything about the tour so we thought it must have been cancelled and nearly left. We also had the awardness of having to go up to every tour guide we saw and ask if they were looking for us. The guide eventually turned up with a group of people and with very little introduction swept us into the museum.It slowly became apparent that we had joined a longer Athens tour as the guide kept referring to things he'd explained "earlier". There were many interesting things to see in the museum but we didn't feel we had leant much about the exhibits in this brief tour and didn't like being squeezed into the busy schedule of a longer Athens tour.

The Tour Guide was very pleasant and clear to understand and very knowledgeable.
However, the tour only lasted about 1 hour. I did not realize that I would be joining a more comprehensive tour that was already in progress and delayed. Therefore the time to tour the Acropolis was limited due to the fact that the tour in progress had to stick to its schedule. I don't feel I received the best value for the money I spent.
