      Acropolis did not accept voucher
      Michele_C, Apr 2024
      The acropolis itself was amazing but I was sent a voucher that the ticket office did not accept and was told I needed to contact the company. I bought a ticket on the spot for 20 euros, I was charged $35 on Viator for the convenience of ordering online and it didn’t even work. The self-guided tour I downloaded was fine
      It was an amazing experience!
      Cameron_C, Apr 2024
      It was once in a life time experience! The place was really part of history and there were less people too so this season is a good time to go.
      Great sight seeing
      Janet_L, Apr 2024
      Having the tickets and just going in. Even thought it says meeting place , it’s not because we already had the tickets . You just go to the entrence and scan your ticket. We call customer service and they answer the phone right away and explain.
      TERRIBLE!
      Howard_C, Apr 2024
      Rating should be MINUS TEN! The ticket links to our tickets did not work. We emailed the provider, which did not respond. The officials at the venue tried to get the tickets to load on my phone but could not. We had to buy two more tickets to save our day from being completely wasted. And then Viator REFUSES A REFUND. Travel friends, look elsewhere.
      Recommended.

      Very well organised. Received confirmation and ticket well in advance. Was worth it to book in advance. Can recommend it.
      Great experience!
      Heather_R, Mar 2024
      We enjoyed the Acropolis immensely! Trip of a lifetime! I wish the ticket process was easier. Waiting for the tickets AFTER receiving the voucher is confusing and too much correspondence. It would be better and more efficient to receive the tickets after payment is received!
      Athens Graffiti Capitol
      Michael_M, Mar 2024
      Acropolis was interesting and way too many people. Too hard for handicapped customers. Really sad to see graffiti everywhere in Athens - no one seems to care. Really sad

      Changed my time
      Cheri_K, Mar 2024
      When I selected a time I selected 10 am - after I purchased the tickets came in for11. I needed the earlier time. So I didn’t get to spend much time there! I was on a schedule - I should have been told my time wasn’t available before it charged me. First time I’ve ever had trouble with Viator!
      Must see and amazing site!
      Marilou_K, Mar 2024
      It a must to see the Parthenon while in Athens. It's an amazing acient ruins and incredible site! We enjoyed the our trip there. Beautiful area too!
      Excellent place to visit if you come to Athens.

      We had a great experience and a good time getting there early to avoid the crowd. It was magnificent experience.

      Highly recommend - a must when in Athens
      Louise_S, Feb 2024
      I was in Athens for business and had a few hours before my flight. I got there for 8am and it was like I had the place to myself! Tickets were emailed 24 hours in advance and were scanned on my phone at the entrance. You probably need a good hour or so to walk round. If you get the opportunity, I also would recommend the Acropolis Museum at the bottom (which is €10 entry) and a walk around Plaka (the old town) which is very pretty.

      Acropolis & Parthenon was on my list to see. Really enjoyed it when I saw it in person - absolutely stunning. However, we took the wrong turn and went out to the exit, We weren't allowed back in unless we bought another ticket. We missed seeing the Theatre of Dionysus.

      It was an amazing experience
      AMORIE_L, Dec 2023
      Wow, just had the most amazing Greek food tour with Tassous! 🇬🇷🍽️ The guy knows his stuff! We chowed down on some seriously authentic Greek eats while Tassous spun tales that brought the country's history and culture to life. It was like eating our way through a delicious history book! Highly recommend this tour – it's like a flavor-packed crash course in all things Greek. Tassous, you rock! 🌟👍 #GreekFoodAdventure
      Self help tour
      David_W, Dec 2023
      The only advantage from booking this tour is a skip the line entry. However, being there on the first day, one has to sort out what to expect from the tour operator as one could get confused at the entry point. No one is on site to help you but to give a call to the operator. Acropolis is a must when you visit Athens or you have not been really there if you didn’t. Great sights.
      Tour of the Acropolis and the Parthenon
      Mary_C, Nov 2023
      We enjoyed having the tickets ahead of time, but no information was provided, I thought we might have at lest a written English guide as to what we were seeing. We did appreciate them letting us use the elevator to the top since we were all over 70 and infirmed in one way or another.

      Viator very difficult to...
      Regina_L, Nov 2023
      Viator very difficult to find and tour on cellphone useless (numbers did not match, made no sense). Waste of money.
      Will not refund
      Lourdes_A, Nov 2023
      I was on a cruise and our ship did not stop, therefore I was not able to visit. The reason I'm upset is because I called the local provider to notify them that we did not stop because of weather conditions and I was asking for a refund or to get credit to another tour in another stop. I was told that I needed to send an email to request refund that it was not possible to do it over the phone. I send the email and received no responds. While another person booked with another company the same tour, they were able to get a refund when they called. So I would go some where else because you wont get your money back.
      Time and no line up for tickets
      Terrie_R, Nov 2023
      Everything about it was awesome Wear very good shoes The audio part was good and up to date Make sure you choose your time of entry as they are strict about letting you in Hope you can find good internet as tickets only sent one day in advance
      If you want a real guide, you're out of luck
      Ann_L, Nov 2023
      It might have helped us skip the line for tickets, but I did not realize that the tour was downloaded walking tour to my phone, for which I did NOT have a headphone input line. Maybe it was my bad, I was arranging stuff at the last minute (another long story). I would not do one again that is only a downloaded tour.
