A must do!
Robert_B, Nov 2023
Having a personal guide to show us the city was the best thing we could've done! Our guide, George, had a modern Mercedes all electric car. It was great to be able to keep our bags with him as we just finished a cruise. Can't rate this trip high enough.
Not satisfied for the high cost
jineric99, Oct 2023
Our tour guide, George, was terrific! My disappointment results from the fact that the tickets provided by the tour operator did not work to get us in to the Acropolis. We stood in line for over half an hour to get in... it turns out the "skip the line" access is only to skip the line to buy tickets, not to skip the actual line to get in, which was not worth the extra cost because we could have "skipped the line" ourselves by buying tickets online... which is what we ended up doing since the tickets they gave us did not work. It took about 40 frustrating minutes trying to figure out all out though, standing in the hot sun, which was that much less time we had to see the actual place, so we hurried through it. Loved George... but not the tour operator experience.
Best of athens

Reliable and safe

We had a great tour of Athens. We were met early by George our driver/ guide. He spoke excellent English. He gave great commentary throughout and got us to the sites at exactly the right time. There was a problem at the Parthenon in they wouldn’t accept our tickets( they had stopped virtual queues and express pass) George was able to contact the office and sort it out. For a time it was confusing but it all worked out. George gave us some free time in the old town and then took us to our hotel at the airport. It was my first experience using Viator and I’ve already booked my next tour. Great reliable service and for two female seniors it felt very safe.

We are really excited that this first tour with us motivated you to book more experiences through Viator platform. We look forward to accommodating you to more destinations around our country as well. Warm regards, The Travel Insiders
Private tour, worth it!
Rillia_H, Sep 2023
We enjoyed this private tour. The key is to be there early like they requested to. We liked that we skipped the long lines and the crowds because we were early. We were a little bit late getting off our cruise ship. Our tour guide was rushing thru the tour, leaving us a little time to take pictures
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Skipping the lines is the key to beat the crowds. As for the limited time you feel you had to take pictures, we should let you know that the site as well as the highlights located in Athens are not within close distance and probably your guide wanted to make sure you have a clear sight of all within the duration of your program. Thank you for letting us know. Kind regards, The Travel Insiders
So much fun in Athens!!

Awesome and accomodating
cynthia_s, May 2023
We had a last minute cancellation on our flight from Athens to Rome and had to take an earlier flight than expected. Our tour guide was amazing and picked us up early from the Cruise Port and we were able to see the most important sites before we had to leave. He was amazing and full of information. When we go back to Greece we will look him up and use him again.
Response from Host, May 2023

Gary_T, Oct 2022
Of course the Acropolis and ruins were amazing but our guide made them come to life. Hearing the history behind each temple and statues made our trip complete. Absolutely schedule this tour and our guide Nikolous!!!

Totally Worth it if You Are Going to Athens!
Katty_W, Jul 2022
We had a great experience in Athens. We were picked up on time in a very nice vehicle at the port for the five of us. Our tour guide (we think here name was Helen) made sure to get us to the Acropolis early to avoid the heat and crowds and gave us really great information about the site. She was friendly and warm and patient with my two teen daughters. After we were taken to a nice area where we had a wonderful lunch. If you are worried about Athens being crowded, I highly recommend this tour.

Great private excursion!!
Benjamin_L, Aug 2019
Tony was waiting for us at the port and he did a great job of getting us to the Acropolis before the crowds and heat set in. He also showed us all the great tourist attractions without major crowds and in good locations. He then took us to a great spot for lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour.
