Meet your guide near the Acropolis in central Athens for your walking tour. Then, head through the Acropolis gate to tour the hilltop citadel (tickets not included), famous for its semi-crumbled buildings from the 5th century BC.

Wander around the 2,500-year-old highlights of the Theater of Dionysus, Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and Temple of Asclepius, formerly a healing center dedicated to the god of medicine.

Learn the stories behind the buildings, and view the Temple of Athena Nike, Propylaea, Caryatid Porch, and magnificent Parthenon.

Then, descend into the Plaka district, Athens’ old town. Enter the cobbled lanes of neo-classical houses and Byzantine churches, and visit the Anafiotika quarter, home to Cyclades-style whitewashed houses built by 19th-century immigrants homesick for their native isles.

Next, explore some of Athens’ food markets, visiting shops selling olive oils, wines, mushrooms, and herbs. Dive into a centuries-old café for a koulóuria (sesame bread), sample loukoumades donuts and filo parcels, and tasty pies and cheeses.

Then, wander through the meat and fish market, stopping for home-made and roasted coffee before perusing and purchasing (own expense) fruit, olives, hams, or other delicacies.

Your tour then ends near Monastiraki Square.

A Dream Come True

This tour was perfect. Great timing and a wonderful guide, Dorian. She was so informative and well versed. This was the perfect combination of culture, history, and rest along the way up to the Acropolis. Plus we opted to have a wonderful lunch following the tour.

Very informative but lengthy!

We enjoyed touring the Acropolis. Our tour start time was pushed up by about 45 min, which we appreciated in an attempt to get ahead of the heat and cruise ships coming in. We were honestly pretty spent after going up and down the Acropolis. The museum was amazing and our tour guide extremely informative, but the entire length was just too much for us. We were absolutely exhausted, parents and children alike. Lunch was included at a local place afterwards. Service however was extremely slow, the slowest in fact we had in Greece on our entire trip. I would book the Acropolis tour piece again, tour the museum on our own at our own pace and definitely skip the lunch—find your own place.

Thank you very much for your feedback. The length of the tour is clearly stated at the description of the tour. Is a half day tour of 4 hours. We would really pay attention to the lunch part. We were sorry you got a slow service at the dining place and we looking to it right now. Thank you again and hope to see you back.

I LOVED THIS TOUR!

Our tour guide, Maritza, (I can’t recall exactly spelling) was amazing! She took us up to the Acropolis, gave us amazing history and details and never missed a beat to take pics, answer questions and always with a smile! The Acropolis museum was also a huge treat, again, full of detailed information we would have never known. The food portion was also great! We went to a couple amazing places that we would not have known about otherwise and had the BEST gyros. She was smart and funny and really made our very first tour in Greece the best possible. Thank you!!! Jerry & Kim, TX, USA

An enriching experience Our tour guide, Maria, was very considerate of our comfort, taking us slowly through the acropolis on a very hot day, finding places for shade and rest. She shared information about the acropolis and Parthenon which conveyed the importance of this spot in Western culture. She also shared the mythology and drama, which made the tour fun. She also guided us through the museum, which gave us an even deeper appreciation of the site. The refreshments, which were local treats, were very welcome and delicious as well.

Our tour was really great! We had plenty of time at the Acropolis and then went through the whole Plaka for our food tour. The tour was a small group - 6 people total so we were able to ask questions and get to know the tour guide. She was so knowledgeable and even gave us recommendations for things to do and see on the islands we were going to next. The food was great and a good way to learn about the local cuisine.

We had three days in Athens for our family vacation five of us. This half day tour was our first adventure. Rosa our tour guide was fabulous. We explored the Acropolis in depth while Rosa pleasently explanined the history. She answered all of our questions and was very personable. The second half of the tour included food tastings at four separate locations. Each stop included traditional Greek tastings including authentic Greek coffee and Gyros!. The food was more than enough to satisfy our appedite. We recommend!!!
