Traveler Tips


  • "It's definitely better to go at 4PM since it's cooler at that time and there's a great breeze at the top." See review
  • "The paths were quite slippery in some areas, so it was a challenge to get to the top." See review
  • "Beware as there is a good amount of walking to do but that’s the case with the ruins in general, not just This tour." See review

The guide was very personable. She learned the names of all of the group members. She was very knowledgeable about the many things to see at the Acropolis. She engaged the group throughout our visit.

We visited Athens for 3-days and this tour was the only one my family allowed me to book.. We got it right, as our tour guide Artemis delivered a very informative and easy to understand tour of Greece and the Acropolis. The knowledge she shared helped in our visit to the Museum. We all enjoyed it very much! Thank you Artemis!

Fantastic Tour, Incredible Guide!

The tour itself was easy to book and the location of our meetup was nice and clean. We met the rest of our group at the meetup spot and walked to the south entrance of the Acropolis to begin the tour. Our guide (I can't remember her name, sorry!) was phenomenal. She had so much knowledge and passion for Athens and the Acropolis that she made it come alive for us. I can't imagine visiting the historic site without a guide to give context and meaning to the ruins. She made our tour one of the best we've ever done. Because it was an evening tour, our free time afterward was somewhat limited because of closing time, but we didn't feel rushed. Highly recommend this tour and the fantastic guide :)

An absolute must do

We was a couple of minutes late to meet our tour, so had to run to the office to collect our ear pieces, to meet back up with them. Our tour guide Dorina was great, giving us plenty of places to stop, great information in each stop, and I was able to flex my history knowledge when she asked us a couple of questions. We worked our way up to the Parthenon, again stopping for plenty of stops and info. She left us at the top of the Acropolis with time to explore and take plenty more pictures. It was a fantastic experience and going later in the day was much better, it was still hot but not overbearing, and the crowd level was much better than I imagine it would be mid day. A fantastic experience and one I would absolutely recommend. Seeing the Acropolis is a must see, and having a guided tour makes it so much more special as you find our info you wouldn't if you just explored yourself.

I simply cannot recommend an Acropolis tour enough - it really brings the Acropolis to life in a way that you don't get just walking in and looking. And this tour is great. I actually took it twice because it was so good, and it was magical both times. Different guides, different experiences but both excellent. The guides were very knowledgeable and I learned so much. I felt connected to history.
