A must do tour!
Tony_T, Jan 2024
Our second guided tour with this firm, this time with our extended family, we were fortunate to have Nickolas as our guide again (some 4 years after our last tour). His passion and knowledge was amazing, this was an English speaking tour, his english perfect. Plenty of stops for pics too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Dear Tony, we are truly grateful to you for taking this tour for a second time and for writing such a wonderful review! Greetings to all four of you! Mister Plato
Amazing Acropolis
Bob, Oct 2023
Our tour guide was amazing and very accomodating. His knowledge was very thorogh. He was able to paint a picture with his words that made the mythology stories very intriguing.
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you, Bob, for your favorable review on your tour with Mister Plato. We are more than grateful! Wishes Mister Plato
Great tour with a great guide
Carolee_S, Oct 2023
Our tour guide exceeded our expectations and the tour was great. He paced the tour so we were not engulfed with crowds we would never have enjoyed our Acropolis trip as much without him.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Dear Carolee, we are so happy for your review and even happier that you enjoyed your Acropolis and Acropolis Museum Tour. Reviews like yours give us strength to carry on.... Best Wishes Mister Plato
In depth and entertaining small group tour!
Michele_O, Feb 2023
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Mr Plato. Wanted a small group tour and it ended up being private just for my husband and I. Mr Plato was entertaining and gave great in depth knowledge about the Acropolis, Parthenon, word origins, Gods, and myths as he walked us around. He also showed us great spots for photos and took many of us where it looks like we were the only people there! The second part of the tour was in the Acoropolis museum and he highlighted and explained many of the artifacts for us. A memorable day and a great way to see the sites. Highly recommend.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you, Michele, for your encouraging and inspiring review!! Our guides really enjoy taking pictures, and believe me, they surely know where all the good spots are.. Kind Regards Mister Plato
Brilliant tour and guide
Charlotte_B, Nov 2022
Brilliant guide. Really great morning. Can’t recommend more highly. Highly knowledgeable guide who really knew his history in a very accessible way.

Dear Charlotte, we really appreciate your taking the time to write this review! We are so grateful! Best Wishes Mister Plato
Too expensive and Not too informative enough
JoseJoaquin_M, Apr 2022
Tour guide was nice, but barely told us anything about the acropolis, he was more interested in hearing where we were from than telling us about Greek culture and the acropolis. I was listening to the other guides and they really knew their stuff, telling their group stories and very interesting information. So this tour is way too expensive (it doesn’t even include entrance) for what you get. You would be better off hiring a certified tour guide at the entrance of the acropolis is cheaper and probably more interesting.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear guest, thank you for your review. We are honestly very sorry that you didn't like the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum Tour. Your guide, like all our guides, was a certified tour guide with a degree in history and archaeology. So, it sounds strange that 'he barely told you anything about the Acropolis and that he was hearing...' However, we are going to take your review into serious consideration. Kind Regards Mister Plato
Acropolis with stories and historical context
Eric_D, Apr 2022
Our guide, Nikos, was truly outstanding. We highly recommend this tour. It is a must! We are a family of four (kids 12 and 9). Having the guide provide historical context and fun stories along the way really enhanced the experience. We highly recommend this when you go to the Acropolis.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear Eric, we highly appreciate your review and your positive comments about the tour and our guide. Nikos is sending his warmest regards to all of you, especially to Max and Ellie. Best Wishes Mister Plato

An amazing guide and a brilliant experience! Very knowledgeable and allowed us to go at our own pace.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Good morning Melissa! We hope you had a wonderful time in Athens. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your tour and your guide. Moreover, we 'd like to thank you for your amazing review. Best Wishes Mister Plato
Neil_T, Jul 2021
This was a fantastic experience. Luckily for me, no one else signed up for the same tour (I don't know why, either, as I made sure to get the early tour so that I would be the heat), so I got the guide all to myself. It was like having a friend walk and talk me through the entire experience. He took me to the spots he knew to be best for pictures so that he could take my picture. He was happy to make all sorts of recommendations to me and take me to a neighborhood and show me where to find good souvlaki. It couldn't have been better.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hi Neil, thank you very much for your feedback. We are really happy that you enjoyed your tour and the time you spent with our guide. We hope to see you again ...! With Best Regards Mister Plato Team
Excellent guided tour.
Keisuke_M, Sep 2020
Thanks to Covit with less tourists, I had privilege to be only one participant to the tour and monopolized the guide who was Experienced, excellent and knowledgeable.
Response from Host, Jan 2021
Mr. Keisuke, thank you very much for your nice review and we send you our best wishes. Kind regards Mister Plato Team

Both my husband and I enjoyed this walking tour very much. Nicholas, our tour guide, was very informative and interesting. We learned a lot on this tour and highly recommend it!

Aude_M, Jun 2022
Le guide était super, je le recommande, je ne suis pas parfaite bilingue et j'ai tout compris 😅, les autres membres du groupe n'ont pas voulu faire la visite du musée, du coup j'ai eu droit à une visite privé ! En plus de guide, il propose de vous prendre en photo (on étais un petit groupe) Bref, j'ai passé une superbe journée! MERCI 😁
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Aude, merci beaucoup for your nice review! We really appreciate it and we can' t be nothing else than happy that you had a great time on your tour. Best Wishes Mister Plato
