Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide outside the Acropolis metro station in the early morning and walk the short distance to the Acropolis. After picking up your tickets, head inside to explore the hilltop archaeological site.

Listen as your guide transports you back to ancient Greece with stories of the ancient city and its importance. Stop to admire the magnificent ruins, most of which date back to the 5th-century BC, including the much-photographed Parthenon, the restored Temple of Athena Nike, and the Erechtheion, known for its exquisite Caryatid statues.

After exploring the ruins, head to the Acropolis Museum to see even more artifacts that highlight the history of ancient Greece.

If you'd like, upgrade your tour to include the ancient Agora, once the epicenter of ancient Athens. Visit monuments such as the beautifully preserved Temple of Hephaestus and the renovated Stoa of Attalos on this guided tour.

Your tour ends in Monastiraki Square in central Athens.

I'm a few weeks late writing this but enjoyed it so much that I had to make sure I came back to leave a review. This tour company is great, we had a slight issue with the alarm in the morning which meant we missed our planned tour but after contacting them panicking in the morning the lady who organises the tickets (very sorry I dont remember her name!) was so calm and helpful and simply booked us on to the following tour the next day. This definitely turned around what could have been a very dissapointing part of the holiday as it allowed us to carry on enjoying the day and we lost nothing out of it which we are very grateful for. The fact that the tickets are bought as part of the price is also a plus, a lot of tours on here do not do that but its much easier to have the guide organise everything and just removes the need to worry about one more thing when you are on holiday. The tour guide Kimono was very funny, knowledgeable and immediately got everyone acquainted. He is obviously very well versed in the history of Athens and we enjoyed his stories and anecdotes a lot. We opted for the walking tour and also the museum tour, both were very good and without the guide I feel we would have missed out on many things so it was a great pleasure to be part of it all.

Must-Do when visiting Acropolis!

Our tour guide, “Vicky”, was wonderfully engaging, patient, and knowledgeable. Taking a guided tour definitely adds value to the experience, as I walked away with a whole new appreciation for Athens! Took the 9am tour which of course has crowds but Vicky warned later in the day is extra crowded.

Great day at the Acropolis!

Our tour was great! The guide was funny and knowledgeable, along with being patient for us to take photos. We had a great time and although we were tired from the sun, we stayed with her to hear about the new acropolis museum as well. The location was challening to find in the morning, but we made it and really enjoyed our day!

The only way to see the Acropolis

Our guide, Miss Efi, was a jewell! She had a degree in archaeology and worked on the restoration of the Parthenon. She let us chronologically through the treasures of the Acropolis museum and then to the Parthenon and surrounding buildings explaining everything in detail. She was easy to understand and delightful. She accommodated by changing her itinerary so we could eat first.

This was a good choice for visiting Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. Our guide was kind, professional and interesting. The tour was well managed, despite the place being very crowded and I can say we enjoyed it. The agency organizing the tour was also very helpful - we had some additional questions after booking and they were quick to answer and really helpful.

Mythological experience of the Acropolis

This tour is a must if you are visiting Athens - the Acropolis and Parthenon are the main attractions in Athens! Our guide Alexandra was very knowledgable about Greek mythology and made us experience what it felt like living in the Acropolis of Athens during ancient times! Be prepared to get tired after the tour as there is a lot of standing time - wear comfortable shoes and don't forget to drink water and apply sunblock! I would also suggest doing the Acropolis Museum (after the Acropolis) as it gives one further insight on what you see in the Acropolis.
