Our tour guide, Anastasia, was excellent. She was so friendly and her knowledge of the Acropolis tour highlights was impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Athens.
Excellent experience!
Angela_N, Feb 2024
Anna was an excellent tour guide that engaged the group not only in providing mythology examples and explaining the sites, but also in showcasing Greek culture. She was enthusiastic and made the tour much more engaging than if I had done it on my own.
Excellent and well worth doing

Breathtaking views, brilliant guides, inspiring history! Small group (about 16) climbed the acropolis at a comforable pace and stopped at each notable site. Each time, we were educated and entertained with warmth and humor. Strongly recommend!

Very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, plus a good communicator and a well organised and not physically challenging trip as the walking was relatively easy. The weather was fantastic as well!
Awesome guide and tour
Linda_O, Feb 2024
We had a great experience on this tour of the Acropolis and museum. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much more on this tour than if we had done it on our own.
Off season was great
Michael_R, Feb 2024
The walk to to top of the acropolis was much easier than I imagined. We stopped many times to learn different things.
Excellent tour
Patrik_E, Feb 2024
Anastasia was an excellent tour guide in communicating interesting facts and anecdotes about ancient Greece. I feel a lot more knowledgeable about everything relating to the Acropolis.
Guided tours enhanced the experience.
John_R, Feb 2024
Errmes was our tour guide, and what a great experience we had. We felt as though we were being given a tour by a professor of history. He was incredibly knowledgeable, had a sense of humor, to go along with it and he answered all questions without hesitation. I would absolutely recommend Errmes. I would also strongly recommend spending the extra money for a guided tour inside the museum. There are so many artifacts inside the museum and the significance of them would be easy to miss, but Errmes was able to bring meaning to them and help you understand their importance. I have a much better understanding of Greek history, thanks to Errmes
Fantastic. Museum was great too!
AnyaLiftig, Jan 2024
Great guide. Went above and beyond. Knew her stuff inside and out. Really made the experience come alive. I did the museum add on and also highly recommend.

Malaseth, Dec 2023
Must do tour. Guide was great. Saw and heard about a lot of history conveniently on a small amount of time. The only improvement I would suggest is to have clear signs across the metro station for the tour company as it was confusing getting to the place in the morning when we were in a rush. Really enjoyed the tour though. We were not rushed.
