This is a must do! This was my favorite tour of my trip which included a lot of tours in Greece and Italy. Definitely wear your walking shoes as this tour is not for the immobile. There is a LOT of walking. My favorite thing about this tour was that at every sight, we learned both the history and myths surrounding the locations. Stops include the temple of Zeus, the acropolis/ Parthenon and some theaters and structures on the way, the ancient Athenian agora, temple of Hephaestus, and an ancient cemetery. Afterwards we were exhausted from all the walking, but this tour was perfect. At each stop, we got some info from our guide and then the perfect amount of time to walk around and take pictures.
Be aware, however, that entrance fees are not included. They add up to around 21 euros with each place being 3-7. Or you can buy the 30 euro combo ticket which also includes 3 locations not included in this tour that you can visit on your own while in Athens.
Overall, this tour was amazing and I high recommend. I would do it again!

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable of Greek mythology and history while exploring all the major landmarks of ancient Athens in 4 hours as described. On occasion we felt overwhelmed by the volume of information she was providing but certainly got what we paid for. Walking rarely presented a problem as there was so much to take in, the pace was more of a stroll. We feel we took in the best of Athens and would recommend this tour to others.

We enjoyed the small group to view Athens from a mythological perceptive (with splash of modern). Our guide, Costas, was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Our 10 year old also enjoyed himself. Slight confusion as meeting place is actually posted Olympic Archeological Entrance not Temple of Zeus.

This was the best tour my husband and I have ever had. Beautiful sights, lovely day, pleasant group but best of all our guide Stephanie. Incredibly eloquent and well versed in history, culture, and best of all mythology. I highly recommend this tour as your first step into Athens!

We only had a couple of days in Athens so this was a great way to see all of the sites in the short time we had. I also enjoyed all of the mythological stories behind the sites -- definitely not something you could get on your own. Our guide, Ifi, was great -- very knowledgeable!

We really enjoyed our tour and Alexandria was a superb guide. We really lucked out having an archeologist for our tour! You do need to be able to walk and navigate steps. We felt bad when one couple had to drop out because the wife was not very mobile. The climb to the Acropolis is a bucket list experience and the view is amazing. You learn so much on this tour. I highly recommend it!
