I SPECIALLY LOVED THAT LILA, OUR GUIDE DURING THE MORNING, WAS EXTREMELY PREPARED FOR THE SUBJECT, AND HAS PERFECT KNOWLEDGE OF GREEK ANCIENT AND TODAYS CULTURE.
IT COULD BE A LITTLE TIRING TO WALK FOR ABOUT 4 HOURS, BUT IT IS VERY VALUABLE IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ATHENS FROM ITS MOST REAL HISTORIC VIEW.
Another good tour that I suggest you take on the first day or 2 of your trip to get familiar with Athens it is a great experience for the price.
Great tour. The guides spoke English well and gave us great information and insight. This is a lot of walking.
This was a great tour- started with visiting the Greek Parliament, watching the change of guards, walk around Syntagma Square, then the Temple of Olympus and Hadrian's Arch. After that came the Acropolis, where our guide gave a very detailed tour of the Acropolis ending at the Parthenon. After a lunch break we went to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion - this was perhaps the best part of the tour. Driving through the beautiful blue Aegean Sea to arrive at Sounion for the sunset is a bucket-list kind of thing :-
Hot and humid, but with a breeze at the Acropolis. Pickpockets are plentiful. The stone walks are polished by foot traffic and are slippery. Good footwear is essential. Being in reasonably good physical shape is necessary as there are many steps to climb at the Acropolis and Temple of Poseidon. The view is spectacular. Our guides were knowledgeable and a joy to listen to.
This was a great deal. Both the morning and afternoon tour guides were great. In the morning, you get to see the changing of the guards at the Parliament building, Temple of Zeus, National Garden, and Acropolis/Parthenon. Afternoon is Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon. No lunch provided, but you have plenty of time in between to grab it on your own. You also have to pay an additional 20 euros for entry to the Acropolis, but they secure the ticket ahead of time. You just need to pay them on arrival for that portion.
Very good day trip and the tour guide was beyond knowledgeable and through. I love getting the detail history lessons and it was obvious the Greeks take pride in their culture and history.
It was a very hot day, but worth it. Glad the air conditioned bus half of the trip was the second part - we needed the rest!
The walking tour was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited. The only thing I wasn't happy about was that because of the heat I couldn't pay attention to all what he was saying other than that I'm very happy!
We had a great time on this tour. Both tour guides that we had were extremely knowledgeable. We enjoyed have the break during the middle of the day for lunch, and we toured the new Acropolis Museum on our own during the time.
Lovely to do on your first day in Athens. You will get a very informational our that helps set your bearings for the rest of your stay. This was my 4th time to Athens and I still did the tour with my three kids ages 8,11, and 18. We enjoyed it. Our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Must do.
This tour was incredible but make sure to walk with water because it is very hot with few places that are shady, and the bathrooms at Temple of Poseidon aren't in good condition so best to use a bathroom before that part of the trip. tour guide was excellent, plenty of time for pictures and despite the trek up to the sites, nothing was too rushed or tiring, definitely worth it. can see a lot in this tour.
Fantastic tour. Guide Sisi was amazing for the Acropolis portion, both at the site and in the Museum. Normally I don't like guided tours of museums, but she pointed out stuff that I found fascinated that I would have missed otherwise. It's a remarkable museum.
We went on Christmas Eve, so no one was at the Acropolis and it was heaven. When we got to the Parthenon, there were less than 50 people up there. Glorious!
Cape Sounion was in the afternoon. Our driver was awesome and the ride was gorgeous. The key to the site is to be there at or near sunset for stunning photographs. Otherwise it's a meh excursion, you go down, you come back. Still worth doing if you are there are sunset.
Great tour with a very knowledgeable and fun tour guide!! Well worth it!!

The walking tour was really amazing. The guide was super friendly and personable in addition to being knowledgeable about Athens, its' sights and its' history she even gave us recommendations on restaurants. The trip to Cape Sounion in the afternoon was equally great. It was about an hour drive outside of Athens so there was quite a bit of sitting on the bus. This entire tour was totally worth it especially for people who don't have a lot of time to spend in Athens because it certainly brings you to the highlights of the city.
Great tour. Pace was perfect. Guides were very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend.
Very good experience, especially on the walking tour. Our guide Katerina was very good and she made an effort to talk to everyone separately on the walk. She also gave many interesting facts about the Acropolis
The best guide!!! Loved everything about this walking tour!
