Lots of knowledge
Amy_R, Aug 2023
Demetrius was the best! He was so knowledgeable and shared so much history and knowledge with us. Demetrius and the driver both went out of their way to assist when 2 in the group overdid it and needed assistance getting back to the car.
Great experience Informative, interstellar, and fun
Roger_S, Jun 2023
Anna was fantastic. She assured that she met the needs of every member of our party. She even kept us entertained during the long wait at the Acropolis. Our driver Leo also went the extra mile to satisfy our needs. Highly recommended

Great introduction to Athens and sights
Barbara_S, Mar 2023
Pickup as scheduled. Christine (guide) and Harry (driver) were personable and accommodating, adjusting pace to suit the group. Christine was very knowledgeable and presented information in a relatable, engaging way. Because a private tour, we were able to change out one stop on the itinerary for a drive to the highest point in Athens where we enjoyed a spectacular panoramic view of the City. A memorable experience, well worth the money. Highly recommend.
See Athens at your own pace.
MarshaBoymel, Oct 2022
Our guide, Anna, and driver, Chris, were both wonderful! Having a private tour is well worth the cost. We were picked up and returned to our hotel. One of us has difficulty walking and they made it easy for us to see everything up close and at our pace. Anna’s clear explanations and stories taught us so much. The views were spectacular. We had a memorable day. Thank you, Anna and Chris.

Very good experience. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to walk us all over and give us rare insights we would never have known about. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a truly impressive tour that will give you every detail that you’d want to know!
Outstanding Acropolis Tour

Steven_S, Jul 2021
If I could give this tour 10 stars I would. Having a guide at the Acropolis with the kind of knowledge Stevie had is invaluable!

Joanna was an excellent guide-very knowledgeable historian and very nice. Harris was equally a professional driver and gentleman. Our family enjoyed the tour of Athens

Awesome day trip!!
Dhaval_P, Jul 2021
Anna and Melina were exceptionally great tour guides! We were a group of 34 people but they made everything go smoothly. Highly recommend them and the Half Day Athens Tour if you only have two days in Athens.

Private tour of Athens/Acropolis
James_S, Dec 2019
We really enjoyed this tour. The guide took us to the major spots to see in Athens, and was flexible to take us to a place not on the normal tour (to replace a site we had visited on our own the day before). The Acropolis tour was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Athens...current and historical. Plus, she was able to help us avoid the long (and very inefficient line) for tickets at the Acropolis (that was almost worth the higher fee for the private tour).

1/2 Day Acropolis & Museum Tour
Go47922399124, Sep 2019
We started with our pickup at the hotel in downtown Athens. Before heading to the Acropolis we visited the tomb of the unknown soldier and witnessed the changing of the guard. After that we hit the Acropolis and museum extensively and in depth. Our guide Stravos was with us the entire session, explaining and describing as well as answering all of our questions with patience and detail. We highly recommend this tour, particularly Stravos. Thanks again, Viator.
Very informative and thorough
Michelle_K, Jul 2019
Our tour guide was smart enough to contact us the day before to ask if we could start the tour one hour early to avoid the crowds from cruises. It made a big difference in therms of how long we had to wait to get on the path up to the acropolis. Definitely recommend getting a tour guide with the driver for a more detailed description of what you are seeing,

Ruli, our guide was extremely knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Ruli explained the history of the Acropolis as well as the temples. I would recommend this tour to anyone. There is a lot of walking on uneven terrain.

Absolutely fabulous. Our tour guide, Emma, spoke perfect English and was an excellent, excellent tour guide. We firmly believe that we would not have appreciated and enjoyed Athens without her.

Nicolas d, Sep 2017
The tour is advertised as customizable but that is not really what happened. bottom line is that the Old Stadium tour is just a view from the front. You really don't go in. We did not get to watch the Greek Guards and were told we would come back but that was not the case as we ran out of time. The tour guide was good but if we did not ask we would have gone without a snack for 5 hours. Really!!! I paid over 400 for a great tour and only got a good tour. Disappointing!

farmer.w_l, Jul 2017
This tour was wonderful! Only 4 of us went on this tour and that provided us with one-to-one attention from our tour guide Agatha. She was attentive and very knowledgeable about Athens. She was able to answer all our questions. She took great care to make sure that we were able to handle the walking up and back down from the Parthenon. Her knowledge in the New Acropolis Museum was so helpful and informative - we learned so much! After doing tours of 25-50 people, then this private tour - it was SO very much worth the money!
Excellent tour! Can't say enough...
Michael F, Jun 2017
Excellent tour! Can't say enough about how satisfied our entire group of 12 people was with this tour. Driver picked us up at our hotel at 4 pm and guide was smart to have us visit sites throughout the city -- mostly in air conditioned bus -- first so we avoided the crowds and heat at the Acropolis. We still had plenty of time to visit Mars hill and Acropolis. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our group included my 83 year old mother who was worried about the walking, steps, etc but guide was great at stopping at various locations to talk about the history, etc. At the end, we arrived late to the Acropolis Museum so could not go in but our guide quickly rec'd approval to take us by bus to Lykavittos Hill highest hill in Athens just at sunset. What a view! We loved it more than museum! Highly recommend taking this tour late in the day to avoid heat and crowds.
