Fantastic tour. Guide Sisi was amazing for the Acropolis portion, both at the site and in the Museum. Normally I don't like guided tours of museums, but she pointed out stuff that I found fascinated that I would have missed otherwise. It's a remarkable museum.
We went on Christmas Eve, so no one was at the Acropolis and it was heaven. When we got to the Parthenon, there were less than 50 people up there. Glorious!
Cape Sounion was in the afternoon. Our driver was awesome and the ride was gorgeous. The key to the site is to be there at or near sunset for stunning photographs. Otherwise it's a meh excursion, you go down, you come back. Still worth doing if you are there are sunset.
A wonderful tour guide and intimate as the group was small. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and Acropolis et al is beautiful. Wear comfortable running shoes with traction e.g. Hiking shoes and there is a lot of climbing. An awesome tour!
This is well worth it as an orientation to a little bit of modern Greek history and a few of the key sites. The meeting place was easy to find, our guide Hermes was extremely knowledgeable, and it covered just the right amount of ground for the time allotted. Ending at the Acropolis is great so you can continue to explore, and use the rest of the day at the Acropolis museum, like we did, or walk to other nearby ancient sites and neighborhoods to explore.
I got really lucky and ended up with a private tour as I was the only one who booked this 9am to 1pm tour of the Acropolis and the new museum! My guide was wonderful, so extremely knowledgeable on the subject and very accommodating to taking extra breaks or answering questions. Even taking pictures for me as I was on my own. She knows everything and easily communicated it in English. Just wish I could remember her name!
Our guide was wonderful and thoughtful about our wishes. The Acropolis was spectacular and the museum was fantastic too. If you go to the Acropolis, don't miss the museum, the history it houses is incredible. Our dinner was great, food was excellent and ambience was perfect. We would definitely recommend this tour and restaurant.
This tour was amazing! Marisa was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and funny. She had no problems answering all our questions, and her great personality makes the tour so much fun. We had a great time, and learned a lot along the way. Definitely recommend this tour if you'll be in Athens. The acropolis is magical plus you get stunning views of the city, and visiting the museum is a great combo. Highly recommend!
Very good experience, especially on the walking tour. Our guide Katerina was very good and she made an effort to talk to everyone separately on the walk. She also gave many interesting facts about the Acropolis
Not happy with Acropolis part...only from a money standpoint. they wanted 20 Euros to go there. your brochure said 12 ...quite a difference. Overall the trip was excellent, including the guide.
Our tour guide, Joanna, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited Parliament to watch the changing of the guards, which was a very unique and memorable experience. The highlight of our tour was visiting the Acropolis and learning about the history of the Parthenon. The journey up to the Acropolis could be challenging for some, with steep inclines and some uneven pathways but well worth the effort. Being on the tour, Joanna already had our admission tickets so we were able to bypass the LONG line of tourists who were not part of a group waiting in line to purchase their individual tickets. Once at the top, Joanna was quick to find some shade from the hot sun while she gave us our history lesson about the Acropolis and surrounding area. Given that the tour was private, it was a great opportunity to set our own pace and ask our own questions rather than being part of a larger group so you are able to learn more about what interests you, specifically.
The walking is a good deal if you only have a day or two in Athens, Otherwise , you can do it all on your own with 3 day trip. We enjoyed the tour. Cape Sounion is ok . Nice drive along the sea. But really kind of a yawn after seeing the Acropolis.
Very professional, on time, at the right place and flexible enough for us to get a bit to eat after arriving at an early hour. Hara was a very experienced and entertaining guide, and managed to give us just the right amount of information without us feeling overwhelmed. The 400 mtr line for tickets to the Acropolis was a sure sign that a small tour group and a dedicated guide was a great decision.
It seems like they don't have this small group tour anymore. The tour operator called me the day before and told me they only had the large group one without the Agora available. They gave me back 21 Euro in cash at their office which was the difference in price of small and large group tour. The only difference was not seeing the Agora, which you can easily do on your own when the tour ends.
Overall it was definitely a very informative and great tour. The guide was great and she provided so much info at each sight. Plenty of free time at the Parthenon to take as many pics as you wanted. The Acropolis Museum was amazing and I learned a ton.
I'd book this tour again, small group or not.
Helen your guide was just as much a treasure as everything she so wonderfully explained about on our walking tour of the Acropolis etc. Sylvia and Frank
Our guide was very knowledgable. She made history come alive for us. The dinner was very good with an amazing view of the Acropolis.
Excellent overview of history or Athens, Acropolis. Our guide was informed and willing to share his opinions. Definitely recommend.
Great tour of the Acropolis. Guide was wonderful and very knowledgable. The trip out to Cape Sounion seemed to be run by a different group and they weren't as good. The ride was long and not a lot of information given. When you got out there I think we spent way more time there than we needed to but I understand you have to justify the trip out there so you can't just spend 30 minutes and leave. Also, it was about 94 degrees F and being out in the sun all day just got to us so that could be why the afternoon wasn't as good as the morning.
I have wanted to visit Delphi since 9th grade,1962 and it was worth the wait. Excellent tour guide and very nice bus.The walking tour of the Acropolis was wonderful if not hot. Super tour guide. The afternoon trip to the Temple of Poseidon was a welcome treat in the afternoon.Chat tours did fine wor
We loved this tour! The 3 hours flew by so fast and we saw so much! Our wonderful guide Kostas was enthusiastic and informative.Athens is an amazing place and this tour during our short stay gave us lots of information and a good overview of the city. We ended the tour on the Acropolis ...amazing!!
Really good tour. Very informative with a friendly and knowledgable guide. There is no way we could have seen as much as we did in a car and certainly wouldn and #39;t have seen the Acropolis, so would highly recommend the walking tour
This was the best way to see the Acropolis. Our tour guide Sophia was great. You could tell she was passionate about the history and information she was presenting. Not like taking a robotic guide tour, she customized for the things we seemed most interested in. To top it off dinner was amazing.
Love, love, love this tour! Our guide was Greek and and an archeologist, so his knowledge of the history of Greece was very impressive. We went through the New Acropolis Museum first, which let the crowds and heat die down at the Acropolis. We spent about 2 hours touring the Museum. Once we got to the Acropolis, the crowds had thinned, and our guide took some really cool photos of us with the city and Parthenon. The dinner was EXCELLENT! One of the best we had during our time in Greece. This tour is worth the extra money if you're interested in history and want a real conversation with your guide, instead of someone just talking at you.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour of the Parliament and the changing of the guards to the Acropolis. Fantastic!
The Acropolis walking tour was amazing. To be that close to history was phenomenal and our tour guide Pantelis did a wonderful job of educating us about so many of the aspects of that era. We also had some free time to really see the Acropolis and Parthenon.
We then walked back to our meeting place where we had a short lunch break.
After lunch we took a bus to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. It was a beautiful drive along the coast and our new guide Effie did an excellent job of describing the sights along the way. She also gave us the history of the Temple of Poseidon.
There is a lot of walking on uneven ground for both of these tours, so if you can't navigate hills and rough terrain I would not recommend this tour. If you can, then it's a 'must do'.
A couple of expenses to note before you leave your ship or hotel:
Price of the cab ride to and from the meeting place.
Price of admission to the Acropolis
Price of lunch-the tour met at a hotel and they had a varied menu/excellent food
