Wonderful experience
Kevin_M, Apr 2024
Our tour guide, Becky, was incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a terrific and thorough tour. She was punctual and friendly, and showed us exactly the things we wanted to see. Her guidance made all the difference in the quality of our acropolis experience. Perhaps best of all was that with her handling the tickets, and knowing how things worked, we were able to skip the lines entirely! The only improvement would have been the same advice that we would give any tour guide: always face your group when speaking, and if referencing something behind you, gesture in that direction, but keep facing your attendees. We highly recommend this tour and tour guide, and send our thanks to Becky for a wonderful experience.

Mike_F, Apr 2024
The view from the top is incredible. Vicky was awesome - very friendly and knowledgeable. We took enough breaks to make the climb manageable. Vicky was always ready to be the photographer for anyone who wanted a photo with anything in the background. A great experience that taught us a few things about this great site and Athens in general.

Vicky was an incredible tour guide, we had a really lovely morning looking round The Acropolis. It’s definitely worth the money having a guide, we learnt so much. I would recommend going on the early tour before it gets busy. The views are fabulous, we were very lucky with the weather. Big thank you to Vicky for sharing her knowledge and passion with us.

Our Tour Guide Lisee was very informative and knowledgeable about the Acropolis. She was able to clearly describe and inform us of all the interesting history of the site.
Nice to visit Acropolis.
Robert_L, Dec 2023
Our tour guide was very good, gave history and seem concern about the ability for my wife's long walk. The amount of walking was moderate but was able to make it. Breaks were just right for listening to the history and bathroom break was just perfect. Sometimes the headsets would lose connections but otherwise it was a very nice tour and enjoyed it.
Great experience
