Guide was very informative and loved walking through the area and not just riding and viewing on bus. Just be aware that the walk up to the acropolis is on rocky paths and is a rather long and step grade.

If you're comfortable walking all day on various terrain and you enjoy learning about ancient history, this tour is for you. The Acropolis is a must see. My husband and I learned a lot about Greece, but at some point we felt antsy to leave as we only had the day to explore Athens. We loved roaming around the Athens area afterwards where there's plenty of shops and cafes.

Another great local guide with lots of good history and details! The walk is not bad and the steps up are not bad either! Might be in the dead of summer heat but in October, very pleasant.

The tour guide was excellent. His knowledge of the history of ancient Greece was amazing. He did not hurry through the tour and allowed us time to see things and take in the atmosphere.

This was a fantastic tour. Despina from Athens walking tours was just outstanding. This is a tour worth taking.
