I was reluctant to go on a tour, but I am so glad I did! I got 1,000 times more out of my Acropolis visit than I would have otherwise. Our tour guide, Asími, was excellent. She provided historical context for everything we saw, she answered questions, and she kept us in the shade as much as possible! My son was skeptical and hot when the tour started, but by the end he was focused and listening to her every word.

If you're planning a visit to the Acropolis, do yourself a favor and take a tour. If you go on your own you'll see some old marble columns going on a tour, you'll be visiting history.

Visiting the Acropolis and Parthenon can be overwhelming as there is so much to see and take in. We decided to book a private tour and I am so glad we did. Effie was our guide and she is an archeologist so she had great insight to add. The skip the line was wonderful because when we met her the line for tickets was very long but she had already purchased our tickets so we didn't have to wait. Effie was very knowledgeable and we gained much more by having her than by trying to maneuver it on our own as it can be overwhelming. It was worth every penny we spent and I highly recommend!

It was one of our favorite tours in Greece! It turned out to be a private tour, which was definitely nice. Our guide Mariza was absolutely great funny, knowledgeable and a great photographer too :. We learned so much and enjoyed our time walking with Mariza learning about all the different areas at the Acropolis and other parts of Athens. Thank you much Mariza!

Efa did a wonderful job going beyond the average tour to really explain the Acropolis. Excellent views and cooler weather by going later!

Our tour guide Ana was the sweetest! We had a great experience, especially since it was pretty much a private tour. We were the only ones on the tour, but Ana informed us that they typically keep the groups small at about 5-6 people max. We learned so much and enjoyed our time walking with Ana learning about all the different areas at the acropolis. It was great that it was in the afternoon because the heat was tolerable. Make sure to take a bottle of water because there is quite a lot of walking. This tour was wonderful!
