What You Can Expect

Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

See the Parthenon in Athens on a half-day sightseeing tour!

Book your chosen tour option and meet your guide in central Athens. Then, set off on your Athens sightseeing tour by luxury air-conditioned coach.

Hear insightful commentary from your guide, and pass top Athens attractions including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Greek Parliament building and Presidential Palace, the home of Greece’s royals until the monarchy ended in 1974.

See the Panathenaic Stadium, the venue of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Then, drive along Panepistimiou Avenue to snap photos of the National Library and one of Greece’s most revered orthodox churches.

After your coach tour, see two Athens’ historical treasures on foot. View the exterior of the Temple of Olympian Zeus — a gigantic, semi-ruined edifice completed in the 2nd century AD—as your guide explains its turbulent history.

Continue to Athens’ showpiece: the Acropolis. Stroll up to the UNESCO-listed site that served as the ancient citadel, and tour the buildings as you hear how they reflected Athens’ prosperity in the 5th century BC.

Admire the magnificent Parthenon, and see monuments including the Propylaea gateway and stunning Temple of Athena Nike.

After time to explore the rest of the site independently, return to your coach and end your tour back at the start point.

Morning Tour plus Acropolis Museum:
Make the most of your time at the Acropolis by upgrading the morning tour to include entry to the Athens Acropolis Museum, one of the world’s top museums.

Show your entrance ticket and explore independently. Walk around the spectacular Parthenon Hall to ogle the incredible sculptures of the Parthenon frieze, and roam the other galleries to view more than 4,000 other ancient objects.

Your ticket lets you spend as long as you wish inside the museum, although most people find two hours sufficient after their 3.5-hour morning tour.

This was an amazing day! The acropolis was awesome! The museum was just okay, we were starving by the time we got there and decided to duck out of the museum portion and just go to the museum cafe!

A great way to quickly see the sights, and get the Acropolis in. We have plenty of time at each place, and going up to the Acropolis with our amazing an knowledgable guide was a highlight. Highly recommend if you are tight on time.

Meeting place at the Hotel Amelia was perfect and the guides were there ahead of us as we were early. Large bus of tour people was comfortable with needed air conditioning. Started at the Olympic Stadium with a perfect amount of short time to take photos. The area circular tour of the city was nice before we went to the Acropolis. The guide was informative, patient with late customers and pleasant. English was clear and good with necessary headsets among many tours at the Acropolis. After the Acropolis, the walk up the street was easy to the Museum. She the guide walked with us and continuously kept our interest with excellent knowledge of the exhibits. We had ample time within the museum on our own after the guides presentation. We had nice options at the end of the tour to shop, return to the hotel, or where ever you wanted drop-off in the city of Athens. Excellent tour. Could not imagine the visit on our own without the guide.

Enjoyed seeing the Acropolis, Parthenon and the Acropolis Museum. Dora did a great job explaining the history of these key sights in Athens, but also was very good about describing many of the other sights throughout Athens. Very enjoyable and I would highly recommend!
