What are people saying about Acropolis

Great time in Athens
Cris our driver was a wonderful guide, he had great knowledge of the sights that we went to. He also had a fantastic book of Acropolis which he kindly borrowed to us when we visited Acropolis. It was fantastic to see how it had looked in ancient times, when we were standing next to the ruins. The car he picked us up in was spacious, clean, and very nice. We will recommend this trip to everyone who wants to see the best of Athens.

Marious is a knowledgeable and fun Athens Ambassador!
Enjoyed all locations - some well known, most not, we rode by or briefly stopped to explore. A preliminary “taste” of the Acropolis area to return and experience in more depth. Marious is fun, knowledgeable and consciences of safety. One of our favorite activities!

Tour guide was well informed and conscious of our safety since the terrain is rough in some areas. The views from the Acropolis were incredible. You become immersed in its history. Highly recommend it.

Acropolis Tour
The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and it enhanced the whole experience. I would not tour it without a guide. Learning the history behind the ruins really brings the acropolis to life and makes you understand the significance.
