What You Can Expect

Small-Group Acropolis of Athens and City Highlights Tour

Visit the Acropolis of Athens on a small-group tour!

Start your tour with a hotel pickup from central Athens, and then travel into the city center by luxury, air-conditioned minibus. Your first stop is the Greek Parliament House in Syntagma Square to see the Greek Monument to the Unknown Soldier and to watch the daily Changing of the Guard ceremony. Have your camera ready to capture shots of the soldiers marching their synchronized moves, and then continue exploring the city.

Pass a cluster of top Athens attractions including the National Garden, Schlieman’s House, the University of Athens and the Russian Orthodox Church, and then head to Panathinaikos Stadium to see where the first Olympic Games took place in 1896. After a quick photo stop, loop around the Roman Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, and work your way to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis of Athens.

Hop out of your minibus for a stroll around the ancient citadel and ogle its collection of glorious monuments. See the Parthenon — the temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena — and gaze in awe at other ancient relics including the Erectheion, Propylaia, the Nike Temple and more.

After seeing the highlights of the Acropolis of Athens, follow your guide inside the New Acropolis Museum, an award-winning exhibition space that’s ranked as one of the world’s top five museums. On your walking tour around the museum, browse its staggering collection of statues and artifacts, and admire well-preserved relics from the days of Ancient Greece.

If you are feeling hungry, grab some food at your own expense from the on-site cafe, and then continue by minibus past Mars Hill and the Rock of Ares (Aereopagus) to the Agora of Athens. The hub of Athens in ancient times, the agora is now a courtyard strewn with incredible ruins and Doric columns typical of the Classical era. See the Attalos Gallery and Temple of Hephaestus, and then work your way back to the start point where your tour finishes.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

This was the highlight I was waiting for when I booked my trip to Greece and it was worth it. It happened to be the hottest day of the summer, but our guide, Anastasia, was considerate, and smartly walked us up the slope with frequent breaks. She was knowledgeable, and passionate about the history. It was a good move to have us review all the pieces in the Acropolis museum before actually going up the hill - it made for great visualisation. The walk through the Agora, followed by Plaka were fascinating as well.
