This tour was amazing. It's set up for small groups and in our case there was just the 2 of us. It's lead by a qualified archeologist/ historian and the information provided and the ability to discuss, explore and understand is fantastic. We spent as much time as we needed at the acropolis then the museum.
We were in Athens for the day only Our tour guide was fantastic she was very informative and had time to discuss everything we wanted to know would recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks for a great time. Ken and Keren Barker
excellent and our guide was unbelievable source of information.. very very good totally would recommend.
Out tour was wonderful! Dafne, our guide was the best. She was very knowledgeable and made our tour very enjoyable!
My family and I had a great time in Athens! Our guide, an archaeologist, historian and thespian, was extremely knowledgeable and presented information at the museum that would have been difficult to discern on our own. The museum tour set the stage for the early evening Acropolis visit which occurred at a perfect time of day, not too hot. The meal at the selected restaurant was a great way to end the evening as we all talked about the great things we experienced earlier in the day.
You can't visit Athens without visiting the Acropolis, and you shouldn't miss the New Acropolis Museum, which is very well done. Doing those things with the Vaitor guide made it all the more rewarding, as she was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We were a little skeptical about the post-tour dinner, but we were wrong! Great restaurant with a fabulous view of the Acropolis and a waitstaff and menu that did not make you feel like you were a tourist, just like you happened to be dining on wonderful food next to one of the world's great archeological treasures.
Our guide was excellent and her knowledge was tremendous. We went right to the museum then up to the Acropolis, then on to dinner with a rooftop view of the Acropolis lite up at night as we ate a traditional dinner. I just wished she could of joined us for dinner so we could of learned more about the city.
The tour was great. Our tour guide Mariza was WONDERFUL! She made sure we were ok, and even with a bit of rain she was able to continue the tour with great energy. Thanks Mariza, you made this tour very, very special for both of us. We will never forget you and the amazing experience you provided to us. JP and MP
One of the best tours we have ever experienced. The tour guide was great! Could answer all our questions and took as much time as we desired to explain everything. Would highly recommend this tour.
Very good the guide knew her stuff, was very informative,she gauged the tour just right,the tour was not suitable unless a person is active owing to the climbing of the steps.well worth doing to find out about the history of AthensThe dinner was ok,the food and service good but the toilets smelt.
Our guide, Marissa, was very delightful and knowledgable. Touring Acropolis/Museum with a graduate archeologist was incredible good fortune! This tour was the BEST six hours of our 14 day trip. We will use Viator everywhere based on this experience. Well done!!
Our Acropolis of Athens tour was a everything we could have asked for with the unexpected "extra" of our delightful guide, Maritzia (spelling?). It is hard to absorb all the history of the Acropolis, but Maritzia gave us a thread of continuity with her insightful presentation. She then made connections from what we had seen on the hill to what was exhibited in the museum. As there were only four of us, we felt like favored relatives who had come to visit as she commandeered a taxi to take us to our delicious Greek dinner. I whole heartedly endorse this tour for anyone who wants to both tour the
Acropolis and have a special evening enjoying Greek hospitality.
Thankis (spelling?) provided us with an excellent experience with history, mythology and current life in Greece. He adapted the our to allow for warm coffee in the Acropolis Museum as the weather was unseasonably cold-very appreciated.
Viator contracted Athens Walks for our tour and it was among the best tours we have ever experienced! Our tour guide was like a walking encyclopedia who knew everything about the Acropolis Museum, the history of Athens and Greece, and was so well versed that we didn't want the tour to end. The Acropolis Museum in and of itself is one of the best archaeological and art museums combined and it is designed in the most creative way. A must see when in Athens.
Our tour was also supposed to include the actual Acropolis, but the workers were on strike that day and the site was closed. Kostas at Athens Walks diligently tried to contact me beforehand to let me know and offer an alternative, but my phone was not working.
Kostas, of Athens Walks, made sure I was reimbursed the portion of the Acropolis admission, and was very apologetic, even though this was entirely out of his control. He insisted on treating to drinks at a local cafe and also invited us on a Food Tour of Athens he was running the following morning, at NO CHARGE.
The dinner portion of the tour was adequate but unnecessary. Frankly I prefer to choose my own restaurant, and there was a tiny bit of confusion once at the restaurant because our guide was no longer with us.
All in all this tour was phenomenal. We were very lucky that Viator booked ours through Athens Walks because we got the best possible guide ever!
