This review is 2 years too late! We took this trip in Oct 2014 and our tour guide was Kostas. It was and amazing tour and Kostas was very knowledgable, relatable and friendly. There was a lot of walking....a lot. So be prepared and wear comfy shoes. The Acropolis is crazy busy with tourist and keep in mind you are walking uphill...a long way so I don't recommend sandles. There is a point where you are walking up stairs and its slippery with not much traction so be careful if you are clumsy. We had already walked around the Temple of Zeus the day before because our hotel was right across the street, but going with Kostas made it so much better. Yes you can walk around yourself and not pay for a guide, but to hear the stories and legends of this amazing city while looking at sites you only read about in books is a better experience all around and definitley worth the money.

Great tour with very knowledgeable guide, “Viki.” Learned a lot about major sites and just how to get around. Excellent introduction to Athens.

Our tour guide Aris was very knowledgeable. Great tour. Saw a lot of the major sites. The duration of the tour was just right- not too long and not too short. It ended early enough in the afternoon for you to spend the rest of the day/night exploring the rest of the city. Highly recommend!

The guide was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about the history of the city. Despite the heat (it was 37C in Athens that day), it was worth every minute. She also found us shade (we needed it) and did most of the talking there. I highly recommend this tour.

If you are into history and walking tours, this is a no-brainer. Our guide, Aris Sichlimiris, was one of the most knowledgeable and friendly people I have ever met. He answered several tough questions from the crowd and kept us laughing all day. Wear comfortable shoes! Would highly recommend!

This was a fabulous tour. Our tour guide Hermes, a Japanese/Greek guy was awesome. He was very informative, his manner was entertaining and he competently answered all the questions thrown at him. We would recommend this tour as a great way to not only see the monuments in Athens but to understand them and the colourful history associated with them. It was one of the highlights of our holiday.

One cannot come to Athens and not visit the Acropolis. We booked a 3-hour walking tour, that began in Syntagma Square, took us by the Parliament building just the Guard changed, and eventually concluded at the Acropolis.

It's got to be said that we reached the foot of the hill near midday, so the heat really was at its worst. I would recommend visiting as early in the morning as possible, because Athens does GET HOT! Picking your way to the Parthenon in such heat is not much fun. Nevertheless, there are little patches of shade though not many where you can stop and rest, and many things to see along the way such as the theater of Herod Atticus, the Theater of Dionysious and, across the bay, the Hill of Philippapos. The top of the hill, where the Parthenon is located, is also home to a handful of smaller temples, all relatively well preserved, majestic, and well worth the pain of the climb. An absolutely unmissable experience.

Our guide was easy to understand. She made us welcome in Athens. The tour was well planned and was a good way for us to get some idea where to spend more time investigating the many historical viewpoint in Athens and surroundings.

This should be the first thing tourists do. I learned a lot and I have general idea where the places are in Athens. Our guide was excellent and three and a half hours went by quickly. I had a little problem to make a reservation with an us credit card. A staff promised me to resolve the problem.

Hermes, and #34;Mr. Tour Guide and #34;, was exceptional! He answered all questions and captived our attention through his comical and informative explanations of the history of Athens, both through the Acropolis and the museum. My husband and teen daughters and I are talking about things we learned today.

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.
