Would absolutely recommend
Manuela_M, May 2023
Very informative. Excellent experience. It was a good mix of history and information and time to take photos. I would not go to the acropolis without a guide.
Athens on High
Karen_C, May 2023
Tour guide was bright, energetic and provided an excellent tour of the Pantheon/Acropolis and the Museum. Perfect day in Athens, we thoroughly enjoyed the morning.
A good guide is essential
Anita_A, May 2023

Great tour guide
Lori_C, May 2023
Wonderful , knowledgeable tour guide. She did not rush and made the climb to the top very doable. The views were amazing
perfect visit to an amazing part of history
Etienne_V, May 2023
this was a great experience although acropolis was a very busy place our guide managed to keep the small group together and give an amazing explanation of all topics . Good value for money
Amazing tour, guide, and sights!
Lorena_U, May 2023
Amazing!! My experience with tours in Greece is that they are generally not guided so you end up seeing beautiful things but with no contextual information. This tour is awesome because the guide you every step of the way and give free time explore in your own. Definitely do it in the evening for cooler temp and fewer crowds. Guide was informative and made for a fun group to explore ruins with!
Great tour guide! Glad I...
Jacqui_R, May 2023
Great tour guide! Glad I booked the tour. Was able to learn some of the history of Greece and Acropolis.
Athens Parthenon
Tara_R, May 2023
Wonderful tour and very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. Would recommend going on the afternoon tour (as we did). Morning your way too crowded.
Enjoyable walking tour.
Anthony_A, May 2023
The guide was very knowledgeable, with good bits of humor along the way. She managed to keep us together during a particularly dense queue entering the Acropolis. I definitely recommend.
Great tour of Acropolis and Museum
Heidi_L, May 2023
Lisa was a wealth of knowledge and brought the story of the acropolis and the museaum to life. Highly recommend
Great way to see the Acropolis!
David_S, May 2023
A wonderful guide who provided such great insight to the Acropolis and more. It was a perfect amount of time to get an overview and up close view of the Parthenon. Highly recommended.
Acropolis Athens Tour
Teri_T, May 2023
We had a great time today and had a great tour guide! We would definitely recommend ! We hiked to the Acropolis which was exhausting but worth the effort then went to the museum. It was awesome!
Ancient Greek History at Its Best
Muy_F, May 2023
Our tour guide was very informative and knew Greek Mythology to the fullest! She was personal and easy to understand. Her English was clear and she spoke well. The pace of the tour was just right. She would occasionally stop for us to rest. The tour involved a lot of walking, but it was well worth it when we got to the top of the Acropolis because of the view. Anyone visiting Athens should go on this tour and learn all about Ancient Greek History. It truly is fascinating! I personally had no idea that so much of American culture has been adapted from the Greek.
Great tour!
Amber_C, May 2023
Wonderful tour, really enjoyed our guide. Knowledgeable and did a great job explaining the various sites.
Excellent Tour!
MaryBeth_W, May 2023
Our guide was Frosso and she was excellent! She provided our group of 13 tourists with a wealth of interesting and easy to understand information. She timed the tour well and while keeping us moving, she was also attentive to our group members' various speeds of walking. I could not imagine a better visit to the Acropolis and the Museum. Both are amazing!
A must do!
DebbieCarriger, May 2023
What a great experience to climb the hill to the Acropolis! I wish we had lingered more in different areas but Alexandra was a great guide with lots of interesting tidbits. Travelers, be sure to do sunscreen and/or wear a hat/bring an umbrella. The sun can be brutal. And of course good walking shoes on the steep climb across rocks that can be slippery even when dry. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Good tour and guide
Whitney_L, May 2023
Very good, very informative and smart tour guide. Ample information and consideration for walking distance and heat. Highly recommend if you are interested in hearing about the history
Great tour guide, very...
Martha_T, May 2023
Great tour guide, very knowledgeable. Insightful about the new museum. she gave us lots of history and architecture.
A must see experience!
eithJohnson, May 2023
The most memorable part of this experience was the tour of the Acropolis. It was so interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable and told us lots of historical information. Definitely recommended!
Great tour, had a blast!
Ronald_G, May 2023
Nothing bad to say about this tour, the title is exactly what you get. You get a cool history lesson as you walk up Acropolis Rock, stopping at various monuments along the way. Once you reach the Pantheon, you hang up there a bit, then head down towards the museum. The guide was great! Very knowledgeable. This is a great tour to stop at all the important spots. I wouldn’t recommend paying for a tour more expensive than this one.
A must when in Athens
Simon_T, May 2023
If you have only a few days in Athens we strongly recommend to book this tour well in advance. We were lucky in that the weather cooperated and it was not too hot for this time of year. Anastasia took her time for a short climb to the top of Acropolis taking her time to give our small group plenty of time to capture the history at its best. Other practical considerations for this type of guided tour are the skip-the-line tickets and ending in the air-conditioned Acropolis Museum after the trek down, which by itself holds the “real” treasures. Unfortunately for us the Museum was closing early (due to Elections that day); if visiting Athens in the winter do Not book on first Sunday of the month as the entrance is free and will most likely be crowded. If you are interested in the UNESCO Heritage sites do not miss this when in Athens! Thank you, Anastasia, for making this a truly memorable tour.
A thorough tour
Mary_H, May 2023
Engaging and enthusiastic guide! She is a knowledgeable local Athenian who shared her view of ancient and local history.
Mariana makes this tour worth it!!
Hillary_M, May 2023
Our tour guide Mariana is the number one reason I’m giving five stars. She was very knowledgeable, very clear spoken, very kind even when being snapped at by a rude tour guest! I would recommend doing this tour first thing in the morning though, I thought we’d be ok with a 9:30 tour, but that was even too late! Definitely do the 8am to avoid the insane crowds! We did in mid-May and the crowd was intense, I couldn’t imagine the high season!!
A history lecture, not a walking tour
Stephen_M, May 2023
This was THE worst tour we have ever taken. Firstly, the guide was late & the cafe was not marked by name on the canopy or anywhere except for the menu cover adding to the confusion. We signed up for a tour of the Acropolis but just couldn’t listen anymore to her lectures. They were not engaging, rather they were dry ‘stand and deliver’ with no interaction with the guests. We went on ahead and revisted the Parthenon and related ruins. Ultimately we decided to leave the tour it was so bad — but had to reconnect with the guide to hand in the headsets. The guide and remaining group did not enter the Acropolis proper until 2:35 ( the tour was supposed to have started at 1pm). We asked for the museum tickets when we handed her back the 2 headsets and she said she did not have them yet. So we missed this visit to the museum. This was our second time visiting both places and thought we would enrich our understanding of the architectural wonder. It did anything but. I would like a refund for this dreadful experience, esp. since we were not able to visit the museum. Who knows what time she would have begun that visit? Best part about this tour was the skip the line feature.
Incredible sight at the top of our bucket list
GAIL_C, May 2023
Guide was very informative and interesting. Seeing the Acropolis and Museum were at the top of our bucket list and did not disappoint.
Stellar tour!
Laine_H, May 2023
Frosso led our tour with knowledge, humor and overall excellence. She balanced providing information with pacing for photo opportunities and a few rest breaks.
Acropolis Walking Tour
DeAnne_C, May 2023
Our guide Liza was amazing!! Very knowledgeable and patient with us due to the large crowds. Took the time to keep us together and not rush. She was able to answer all of our groups questions were answered. Highly recommend!
Fantastic tour! Informative and fun
Marci_B, May 2023
Tour guide was friendly and I tuned with the needs of the group. She gave us the history, pointed out important things to see, and kept us together in the crowd. She was delightful!
Great Guide made it worth it!
Ellen_R, May 2023
Masses of people made it difficult to get up and down… even scary at times with people trying to move faster. Our Guide did an excellent job of keeping our group moving together. Her knowledge and humor were Incredibly good making it enjoyable. They should limit how many tickets are sold for each hou.r.
