We had a tour guide, Daphne, all to ourselves. She was wonderful. She took very good care of us since we are in our sixties, taking her time as we ascended the stairs and making sure we took care not to slip on the marble steps. She was very knowledgeable and sweet. Afterwards we had a wonderful dinner at a quaint little restaurant with plenty of delicious food to eat and wine to drink. We were so full we could barely fit in the scrumptuous dessert. We also had a nice view of the lit up Parthenon in the evening.

A bucket list tour for me. The tour was excellent and well worth the extra price to have a private guide. Because it was a private tour, we were able to ask a lot of questions and linger at areas we were interested in, rather than be rushed along with a group. The museum is beautiful and the exhibits are wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Most importantly, she was kind. I had spine fusion surgery four months prior to the tour. My goal was to be able to climb to the top of the Acropolis. It was extremely difficult for me and took a very long time. More than once I was nearly in tears and certain that I wouldn't make it. She was my champion, encouraging me, letting me stop to rest - and she never looked impatient. I can't thank her enough. Going to the Acropolis is something I have wanted to do all my life. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!

Our guide Mariza shared with us her love, knowledge, and enthusiasm, about Greece, Athens, Acropolis, Parthenon, Greek mythology, and classical time technology. We were very pleased to meet her and learn a lot about her beautiful country. She is very nice and friendly person. Thank you Mariza, very much! The restaurant has nice view on Acropolis it locates on the roof and the food was OK.

Maria, our guide, was a well educated young woman who could tell an old couple the details of Ancient Greece and the cultural maturation without totally confusing us. Very accommodating and helpful to me. I am disabled,and Maria made sure that I was able to appreciate the beauty and progression .

Excellent way to see the Acropolis and the Museum and be introduced to Greek history. Our guide, Anna was wonderful with her stories of Greek history and mythology. We could tell Anna was extremely passionate and knowledgeable through her storytelling. The Greek dinner was lovely with nice staff and in a great location overlooking the Acropolis. Myself, my husband and our 14 year old son thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

There were seven of us on a family trip. Our guide was great and very engaging. I think her name started with an M. I am sorry I don't recall because she was terrific. She is also the first guide I have ever had that refused to accept a gratuity - and she certainly deserved one!! The dinner was also very nice with a good nighttime view of the Acropolis. There was too much yes, too much food, however, and I felt bad that we were not able to come close to finishing all that was served to us.

My wife and I were the only ones on this tour so we had the wonderful guide Annie to ourseleves. Really great tour of the Acropolis and museum. Food at the restaurant was nice and the staff were friendly, but we and other organised tour customers were seated with a very poor view of the stair well.

This private tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum with Greek dinner was excellent. Our tour guide, Rosa, was very knowledgeable and personable. She told a story of Greek history and Greek mythology using the museum artifacts and the Acropolis to illustrate the topic. Rosa was very informative and you could sense she enjoyed what she was sharing.

And the dinner was excellent. It was a prix fixe meal but there were enough options for all and it was all delicious. Also, our dinner was on a rooftop restaurant that had the Acropolis in its view.You could watch the sun go down and the Acropolis light up.What a night!

Wow what a great experience with our guide Edie! She knows so much about everything we saw. We could have done it by ourselves and missed so much of the story. She also engaged our 15 year old son which is not easy. Evening tour is the best time the marble of the acropolis was glowing.

On our final afternoon/evening in Greece w took the Viator Exclusive Tour: Acropolis of Athens New Acropolis Museum and Greek Dinner. We met Thanasis who is an archaeologist, historian, philosopher, actor, exceptional teacher and passionate citizen of Greece! Wow, the impressive credentials were only surpassed by Thanasis's ability to transfer his passion and knowledge! This was the grande finale of our final day/evening in Greece! I highly recommend!!! The entire family of four Me, my husband and 19/24 year old daughters give this a 5 star plus! We knew the Acropolis would be amazing but we had no idea how crazy, unbelievable the Acropolis Museum would be! Thanasis brought the exhibits alive for us in a way that would have never happened on our own. I learned about the genius of Phidias, the artichect and sculpture overseeing the construction of the Acropolis. I was also enlightened to learn the damage and theft to Parthenon caused by the greed of Thomas Bruce, the 7th Earl of Elgin in 1801. I vote for the British Museum to give the Parthenon Marbles back to the people of Greece!!!! When Thanasis learned that our daughter was a professional Actor he took us to the Theather of Dionysos where it all started. He directed a short Greek Tragedy with our family as the cast! We certainly had a great laugh! We enjoyed dinner on the roof top of Attikos Greek House. We did not get a view of the Acropolis as stated in the overview of the tour. When we asked to be seated where we would have a view of the Acropolis the Restaurant they informed us the seating area with a view was for guest w reservations. Since I purchased the tour two months in advance I was confused. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful evening and throughly enjoyed the tour

Simply AMAZING! Our guide was fantastic sorry, his card is at home and I cannot remember his name and spent so much time with us. He truly appreciated the history and shared so many insights and ideas with us. The dinner was also fantastic, but they did try to only serve us a glass of wine, rather than the bottle of wine that the tour included, so watch that. I would highly recommend this tour and will update with the guide's name because you should ask for him!

Our guide was marvelous and very helpful in adjusting our visit to meet our expectation and schedule. She has a lovely way of telling the history of the monuments with a bit of humor and even a little mystery. Her enthusiasm for the site is infection and we were spellbound as we learned of the details of this marvelous place. The pace of the tour was great and we were given every opportunity to explore.
Our Greek dinner afterwards was lovely and concluded a very special day in Athens. To have a private tour of the Acropolis is truly priceless!

Anna was an amazing tour guide who clearly loved sharing information and insights about Ancient Greece. We would most highly recommend this tour if she is to be your guide. Meal was good, but the tour was definitely the piece of this package we will always remember.

Our guide was wonderful and thoughtful about our wishes. The Acropolis was spectacular and the museum was fantastic too. If you go to the Acropolis, don't miss the museum, the history it houses is incredible. Our dinner was great, food was excellent and ambience was perfect. We would definitely recommend this tour and restaurant.

This tour was amazing! Marisa was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and funny. She had no problems answering all our questions, and her great personality makes the tour so much fun. We had a great time, and learned a lot along the way. Definitely recommend this tour if you'll be in Athens. The acropolis is magical plus you get stunning views of the city, and visiting the museum is a great combo. Highly recommend!

Amazing tour. The guide Anna was highly professional and knowledgeable about the subject matter. Learned so much that I would have missed without the tour. She maintained a high level of energy throughout the entire visit and also shared a lot about Greek life and society beyond the content of the tour. Dinner was perfect too. Highly recommended for both a quick stopover in Athens or a longer stay.

Thanasos was an excellent guide and the experience was unforgettable. Without his historical/philosophical/theatrical commentary the visit would not have come alive as it did. A little more time at the museum would have been good. The restaurant Manh Manh was a wonderful culmination to our day. Highly recommended.

This was the best way to see the Acropolis. Our tour guide Sophia was great. You could tell she was passionate about the history and information she was presenting. Not like taking a robotic guide tour, she customized for the things we seemed most interested in. To top it off dinner was amazing.

Love, love, love this tour! Our guide was Greek and and an archeologist, so his knowledge of the history of Greece was very impressive. We went through the New Acropolis Museum first, which let the crowds and heat die down at the Acropolis. We spent about 2 hours touring the Museum. Once we got to the Acropolis, the crowds had thinned, and our guide took some really cool photos of us with the city and Parthenon. The dinner was EXCELLENT! One of the best we had during our time in Greece. This tour is worth the extra money if you're interested in history and want a real conversation with your guide, instead of someone just talking at you.
