What To Expect

Meet your private guide at your Athens hotel (if walking distance from the Acropolis) or at the entrance to the archaeological site and head directly to the highlights of this vast site. Begin with the Propylaea then move on to marvel at the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, and the Parthenon.

Learn about the history and significance of these ancient Greek buildings, and their influence over architecture and culture over the millennia. Pace the tour to suit your preference, lingering at the landmarks that interest you most and asking your guide additional questions. End at the site exit after two hours of guided visit, or remain inside the site to explore further and visit the Acropolis Museum on your own.

We had a great experience on this private tour! Our guide, Stelios, did such an amazing job! He came to our hotel and accompanied us to the Acropolis, giving us tidbits of history and information all along the way. He was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. In addition, he knew the best spots for photos! I can highly recommend this tour!
