  • "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

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.

Our guide Kimon was amazing! The sunset tour is the perfect time of day to experience the Acropolis in all of her glory. There were far less crowds and the views were majestic. Kimon is an expert in both architecture and history, so he spoke passionately and enthusiastically about the Acropolis and the city of Athens. He even memorized our names during the tour to make our experience more inclusive. Impressive. Highly recommend.
