Corina, our tour guide was outstanding. She was knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. She certainly brought to life the ancient history, stopped the climb every few minutes so the climb to the Parthenon was not too difficult. She is the best

Dorina was an amazing guide for the tour. She was super knowledgeable about all aspects of Greek history (like an encyclopedia). Visiting the sites having a guide makes a big difference in your overall experience.

Dorita was our tour guide and she was wonderful. We were so glad we paid extra for the tour of the museum. It made the tour of the Acropolis so more educational. Not all the artifacts at the Acropolis are original, many are in the museum. I would highly recommend this tour

Brilliant guide and great day out

Ermis our guide was excellent, so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, very dry sense of humour and his English was superb. He paced the tour well and was very thoughtful, finding patches of shade for us on a hot day and easing us up the climb to the top of the Acropolis - which actually wasn't as daunting as it looked from the bottom. He really brought the past to life and I learned so much about Greek history that I never knew. This has been on my bucket list for years and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Worth every minute and euro spent

Eli, our tour guide, was incredibly informative and gave an in depth, contextualized understanding of the ruins. She made us feel like we could see ourselves walking in the feet of ancient Athenians and gave perspective on the contributions of ancient Athenians to the present modern world. The nuances of the architecture and the mythology surrounding its building and organization were lessons we could have never learned on our own, especially with the added museum your. So worth it.

Fun interactive sightseeing tour

Having someone who knows the stories and the history really adds up to the experience. We learned something new this day and got enough time in between to take some photo's and video's during the tour. Our tour guide Kimon was very knowledgeable and kept thing interactive and fun by asking the group questions and cracking some jokes from time to time.
