Traveler Tips


  • "The Acropolis has a very rough terrain and some of the stone has been worn slick and can be very treacherous especially for those with knee or ankle problems." See review
  • "If you arrive early you can do some shopping on the street or sit down and have something to eat." See review
  • "A note of caution should be made that the tour is rigorous and lengthy, requiring a long climb over slabs of stone and marble on narrow paths." See review

Excellent walking tour - you need to be fit though
David_N

This was very good. Katrina our tour guide was knowledgeable and made excellent use of our imagination to create imagery of what it was like in those times. You need to be relatively fit to complete the tour as a proportion is quite uphill. All in all an unmissable experience

Awesome Tour of Acropolis

This was a great tour! Stieve was informative, funny, and gave us lots of tips on other places to check out. We walked up to the Parthenon and checked out all the sights along the way, then anyone who’d signed up for the museum tour walked back down with Stieve. For myself and my husband, the first half of the tour (without the museum part) was perfect, just under 2 hrs. The headsets worked well and allowed us to hear Stieve clearly.

Thanks to people who know their particular subject, like our guide, I would always suggest individual tours like this one. Just one thing, when you book a tour like this, please, listen to your guides. Even if you know one or two things already, there always are a few bits in there you might not have heard before. Our guide, an archaeologist by trade, did a very fine job. Even attempting to explain the mathematics of φ to the group (which I enjoyed)! Our thanks to her 😘

Dear Robert, we greatly appreciate your feedback, because it demonstrates the day-to-day effort of our tour guides to share their expertise and their love for Athens and its history. It is always touching when guests respect and admire their work. We sincerely thank you too, and hope to see you again soon in our city!

Do not do the Acropolis without this tour!
Candace_E

Our tour guide, Ellie, was absolutely fantastic. There is so much that may go unseen or unknown by doing something like this by yourself. It was the perfect length of time and there were plenty of stops along the way. The information given taught us so much, but didn't overwhelm us. I don't think I have ever gotten so many facts that actually spill over into my every day life. Ellie was incredible sweet, knowledgeable, patient, and one of the best tour experiences we had. Do not do the acropolis without this tour!
