Zeta was a wonderful tour guide - fun, knowledgeable and informative. Cannot imagine touring the Acropolis without understanding the impact of the ancient culture on today’s world; more specifically how the people of Greece and those of the Acropolis made todays world better. Our only disappointment was the tour sent a note via email the night before with an hour earlier check in request and we saw it after the tour. It explained why our end was abrupt and there were missing parts.

The office is located a short walk from the Acropolis. The staff was very welcoming and efficient. Our guide was very knowledgeable, set a reasonable pace & found us shade whenever possible. We enjoyed the size of our group and the use of the Whisper Boxes made hearing our guide effortless. The office sent updates via email concerning our reservation and all the necessary information for the tour. Awesome experience!

Artemis our guide was excellent. Enough historical download delivered in a clear, entertaining and memorable way. She was attentive to the groups’ needs on such a hot day, and we loved her passion and enthusiasm for her country’s history. We really enjoyed the tour and feel we must now lobby our government to return what Lord Elgan stole to its rightful place within the stunning Acropolis Museum where the marble freeze belongs. Many thanks x

Do not go with guide if you do not like heights!
Jane_B
, Jul 2022
The guide was very knowledgeable and always stopped in shady places. All was going well until we came to a fork where one way had proper steps and a barrier to hold onto and the other way had no barrier and was slippy. I do not like heights and did not want to go the way that the guide wanted to go, so we had to stop this tour and make our own way up to the Parthenon, therefore I felt this was a waste of money. However for anyone who is not afraid of heights I think this would be good value for money as you would learn a lot from the guide.

Thank you for taking time to submit a review. Im sorry that Acropolis hill make you feel scared of the heighs. I do not think an ipsophobia has anything to do with a licensed tour guide or if the guide could do anything about this issue since Acropolis is an up hill monument.

Kimon was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was quite nice and we stopped a lot along the trek up to the top of the Acropolis where he told us about various parts of the Acropolis, which made it much easier and nicer to climb up!

Had a wonderful informative experience taking us back in time! Even though it was a hot day, and the climb up the acropolis to the parthenon and other sites was a bit exhausting at times, our guide stopped in shaded areas on the way up to speak and point out many magnificent ancients sites. Our family of 3 adults and 2 teenagers, was able to gain significant insight about life in ancient times. We never would have appreciated it all without the guide's knowledge. Thank you! Highly recommend.

An excellent tour leader. We had a great time and would definitely recommend. As it was, it was fairly good for beating the heat + crowds. But if there was a tour available that would get us into (and out of) the Acropolis even earlier, we would take it! Thank you for a great experience.
