Response from Host, Dec 2021
We are glad to hear that, dear Arnold! Dorina was very pleased to read your lovely comments! Please join us again for more cultural and fun activities!
Flavia_B, Nov 2021
Our guide, Natasha, was really friendly and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour on the Acropolis and in the museum. It's such an incredible place! My only suggestion would be to do the museum tour before the Acropolis tour so visotors have free time to explore the site on their own at he end of the day. We did not have any free time, and I really wish we had been given some...
Very intersted tour!

Anita_B, Oct 2021
Corina, our tour guide was outstanding. She was knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. She certainly brought to life the ancient history, stopped the climb every few minutes so the climb to the Parthenon was not too difficult. She is the best

Amazing experience! Learned a lot and Evita our tour guide was excellent !! I would highly recommend this tour to friends..
Must book if you want the full acropolis experience
Frank_C, Oct 2021
Dorina was an amazing guide for the tour. She was super knowledgeable about all aspects of Greek history (like an encyclopedia). Visiting the sites having a guide makes a big difference in your overall experience.
Dorita was our tour guide...
Kathleen_S, Oct 2021
Dorita was our tour guide and she was wonderful. We were so glad we paid extra for the tour of the museum. It made the tour of the Acropolis so more educational. Not all the artifacts at the Acropolis are original, many are in the museum. I would highly recommend this tour
Brilliant guide and great day out
Jane_W, Sep 2021
Ermis our guide was excellent, so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, very dry sense of humour and his English was superb. He paced the tour well and was very thoughtful, finding patches of shade for us on a hot day and easing us up the climb to the top of the Acropolis - which actually wasn't as daunting as it looked from the bottom. He really brought the past to life and I learned so much about Greek history that I never knew. This has been on my bucket list for years and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
