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.
It was great. Much smaller group on tour than with the cruise excursion.

This tour was well worth the price. Our guide was excellent. So knowledgeable and fun. Love Viator tours!
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.
Beautiful Ancient Greece!! You get to see all the main highlights of Greece and then some, but there is a lot of walking.
Our guide, Stavros, was excellent and the overall tour was outstanding - just the right use of the time in port for a cruise stop.
The tour was amazing. Vicki was the best tour guide we had on our entire trip. Her knowledge was incredible, she was kind and polite. Highly recommend this tour.
This sightseeing trip was awesome. Acropolis is a must see while in Athens. The guide was great. This worked well with our cruise timeline.
To climb to the Acropolis and Parthenon is a MUST do. Our tour guide, Nikos, was very informative also made the walk easier by stopping in the shade to talk. He was very considerate
Viator organised taxis for a few of us as our cruise ship was leaving earlier than the normal tour transport time. Very happy
The Athens Shore Excursion and the Acropolis Walking tour with Kostas Kastellalcis, our tour guide, was amazing. We enjoyed his clear explanations and all his stories. Kostas was very knowledgeable and he answered all the questions that the group had. Worthy to note is that we expected to be picked-up by a van but we were nicely surprised when a driver very polite and courteous man came to pick us up in a car just for us. I highly recommend this tour and Kostas, our tour guide.
We had an incredible tour with a knowledgeable and outstanding guide (I can and #39;t remember his name). We loved the entire experience.

I loved this tour. A taxi picked us up at the cruise terminal, and took us to an entry to the subway. Then he explained exactly where he would pick us up to take us back to Piraeus. Once underground, right under the clock, a bunch of people start gathering. Everything was very organized, we were split into small groups and off we went with our small group and very knowledgeable guide. We visited several sights on our way to the Acropolis. I was surprised to see many people not knowing what they were getting into: this is summer, 90 degree F temperature, and you are going to CLIMB all the way to the top of the highest hill in Athens. No, there are no lifts, it is rocky, uneven, slippery, and NO the group cannot wait for you. I was sad to see some people left behind at different points, some very close to the Parthenon, but they simply couldn't make it.
A great walking tour of Athens and all of its cultural sites! Our tour guide was knowledgable (although a bit soft spoken) and was patient to answer the questions of our group.
Our favorite tour of our whole trip! The history of the tour and the lunch was one of the best of our entire trip. This is a must do if you are in Turkey. Emory was an AMAZING guide and made our visit such a wonderful experience. Emory is a gem and I would do tour this again.
The tour was great. Our guide explained it all so well and entertaining, truly enjoyed it.

When we arrived to the Port of Athens our English speaking driver was waiting for us with a sign. Our driver was great and told us about everything we passed on our way to meet our tour. We were dropped off at the metro station where we met our tour guide Kostas. We began our tour in the metro station as it is a museum as well. From there we went to the Parliament building where we got to see the change of guards. Then we walked through the national park which led us to Zeus' Temple. It was pretty hot so my grandmother bought a hat to block the sun. We were lucky it was a very nice day but it was pretty hot. water bottle is a must After we walked up to the Acropolis, which was a pretty long way up. It was a lot higher and much more tiring than I thought. If it is raining or wet do not go up to Acropolis as it is slippery when it is not wet but when it is wet it is extremely slippery and dangerous.
We had a great experience in Athens as Kostas was a great guide and we learned so much about Athens history. We got great pictures and great memories.
Our guide Helen was wonderful! She made sure to give us lots of information about the sites we were seeing as well as some of the customs and history too. Helen was considerate of everyone and #39;s health levels when selecting a pace for the group to walk.
