Not recommended and pick up possible
Isa

We strongly do not recommend to purchase this "Skip the Line: Acropolis of Athens Admission Ticket" via viator. We received an email indicating to access the ticket online, but the ticket is not (!) available online. We had to go to a travel agency in Athens to pick up the ticket. We went there twice because opening hours were not updated. The ticket, which we received, was a normal entry ticket and not a skip the line ticket, so this is rather fraudulent and annoying.

Just a warning to everyone perusing Facebook. The pictures and articles look great, but don't ever book with Viator. When we tried to book a tour in Athens, the Viator website displayed an error code and said the booking could not be completed. Much later we received a booking confirmation to the provided email address, but we had already made other plans and were no longer in the country to use the tickets. We were refused a refund and requested to pay in full for an error on the company website. After this, I've asked around and looked at the reviews of others and it seems that the company has had many similar complaints (tours cancelled, refunds refused, etc.) So please, stay away from this company. You will not be treated fairly.

Totally hassle free, tickets were emailed to me the day before the trip, went straight up to the entry barriers and went in. The trip is absolutely worth it. It was stunning to see the Parthenon in the flesh and the views up there are truly breathtaking.

Our visit to the Acropolis was magnificent. The site has been on our bucket list for some time and we were ecstatic about the visit. The only advice I would give is that if you buy the skip the line ticket, read the fine print. You must take your paperwork to a retail location a few blocks south of the Acropolis to have your actual tickets issued and printed. If you are short on time or want to beat the crowds, you may want to reconsider. Otherwise, it was a way to skip the ticket line, albeit the day we were there the lines were short.

Acroplis YES! Skip the line -- DON'T DO IT!

The Acropolis is absolutely incredible! We highly recommend visiting. Skip the line admission ticket experience was horrific. We walked well over an hour trying to find the office where tickets were to be picked up. That was frustrating but that's what happens, I guess, when trying to navigate on your own. Even locals (police, security, business owners, etc.) were unfamiliar with the location and had hard time directing us. Once we finally arrived at the office, there were several people waiting / seated who did not look happy at all; guess they had same experience did trying to find the place. Once there, we waited in line for 10-15 minutes listening to the clerk complain about the last client who had just left the office. (Presumably, she didn't realize that someone in our party understood what she was saying...or didn't care?) Once it was our turn to pick up "real" tickets -- she was extremely rude and gave zero information on what to do next. Please folks -- do not waste precious time on these tickets -- it's time you could be enjoying the real beauty and fascination of the Acropolis.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your time to leave your review, and we are sorry for not satisfying your expectations at that point. First of all, we would like to make clear that our offices are centrally located with 56 years of leading our industry, just 3 minutes from Acropolis Metros Station and very close to Acropolis South Entrance. Our address is clearly stated both in your voucher and our website, and our call center is always available and responsive to help any guest who needs further assistance. As for your comments regarding the behavior of one member of our team, we are surprised because we always read and listen to excellent reviews for our staff. However, we apologize for this situation, we will investigate the matter, and we will make the necessary recommendations. We hope this helps, and we remain at your disposal. Kindest Regards, Key Tours

Skip the line superfluous

There was only a very short line in front of the ticket office for the Acropolis when we visited this first week of October so we didn’t need this service after all. And could have saved the money.

Never use this company

Stay away from using this company. First you will not need advance tickets. The lines that I have experienced in the past were never that long. I decided to purchase the tickets because members of our group were doing so. You will not be able to find the place, and when you ask around the area of the address nobody knew who this company was. I needed to place a dispute on my credit card as two other members of our group did.
