Ruli, our guide was extremely knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Ruli explained the history of the Acropolis as well as the temples. I would recommend this tour to anyone. There is a lot of walking on uneven terrain.
The tour is advertised as customizable but that is not really what happened. bottom line is that the Old Stadium tour is just a view from the front. You really don't go in. We did not get to watch the Greek Guards and were told we would come back but that was not the case as we ran out of time. The tour guide was good but if we did not ask we would have gone without a snack for 5 hours. Really!!!
I paid over 400 for a great tour and only got a good tour. Disappointing!
This tour was wonderful! Only 4 of us went on this tour and that provided us with one-to-one attention from our tour guide Agatha. She was attentive and very knowledgeable about Athens. She was able to answer all our questions. She took great care to make sure that we were able to handle the walking up and back down from the Parthenon. Her knowledge in the New Acropolis Museum was so helpful and informative - we learned so much! After doing tours of 25-50 people, then this private tour - it was SO very much worth the money!
Excellent tour! Can't say enough about how satisfied our entire group of 12 people was with this tour. Driver picked us up at our hotel at 4 pm and guide was smart to have us visit sites throughout the city -- mostly in air conditioned bus -- first so we avoided the crowds and heat at the Acropolis. We still had plenty of time to visit Mars hill and Acropolis. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our group included my 83 year old mother who was worried about the walking, steps, etc but guide was great at stopping at various locations to talk about the history, etc. At the end, we arrived late to the Acropolis Museum so could not go in but our guide quickly rec'd approval to take us by bus to Lykavittos Hill highest hill in Athens just at sunset. What a view! We loved it more than museum! Highly recommend taking this tour late in the day to avoid heat and crowds.
Nothing is as you expect in Greece it seems:
- The tour is advertised as customizable. Seems not. Viator said the only way to customize it is to cancel and book a different tour
- The Panathinaikos Stadium tour isn't a tour. You stop in front. If you want to go in you pay extra and you're on your own
- 'watch the fanciful Evzoni Guards' - you aren't allowed to get off the bus therefore hard to see them behind the crowds from the street
- 'Continue with a pleasant short walk past Herodion and Dionysos Theater'. The theaters are somewhere up on the mountainside. The walk is along a road.
All up, the tour description is extremely colorful. Reality is mostly sitting in the bus driving past sites. Not worth the extravagant description and price.
Great tour to see all in the little time that we had. Our guide was wonderful and made sure that we were taken care of. He had a lot of information on the various places. In the end, we joined him for coffee which was a nice touch.
