Traveler Tips

If you are going up to the Acropolis, do wear good shoes, as the top is rocky, and the rocks are very slippery from thousands of years of traffic.

Fantastic experience! Leeza or Leza (Lisa) our walking tour guide did a phenomenal job!! Highly recommend this tour!! We can't say enough to do it justice!

Kostas was a fantastic guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a passion for the history and the artistic details. I highly recommend this tour. Wear good solid walking shoes and try to book in the morning to avoid the heat. Museum was also worth the extra time.

Our tour guide Anastasia was wonderful, very knowledgeable, experienced and helpful. This tour was informative and inactive, we loved that.
Don’t skip the museum!
Teagan_P, Aug 2023
Climbing all those steps in the heat and the crowds was worth it! Stepping out onto the top and seeing the Parthenon was so amazing. Our guide was brilliant (can’t remember his name but he was dressed like a safari guy!) the right mix of facts and humour had everyone listening. He always sort out the shade and made sure everyone had water before going in. Finishing off at the museum was great as we got out of the sun and into the air conditioning.
Amazing Acropolis Parthenon and museum tour

Great experience, Lisa is amazing
Buffalo_M, Jul 2023
Great experience from start to finish. Lisa provided a perfect level of detail, always adding great context to what we were seeing. And the pace was very manageable, moving from shade to shade as it was already hot out. Definitely recommend!
Great value way to see Athens
Nicholas_N, Jul 2023
Lisa was a great tour guide, knowledgeable, insightful and spoke very good English. The walking tour was a great way to experience the historical sights of Athens.
Hot Chaos
Neal_K, Jul 2023
The tour guide did a good job. He knew a lot about the history of Ancient Greece. It says bottled water provided and it was not, make sure you bring you’re own. It was crazy hot and very crowded. Also note that right now there is no skip the line. Wasn’t the tours fault but maybe save your money by purchasing another tour until it’s back up. The lines are crazy long.
Great tour - highly recommended!
craig_t, Jun 2023
Tour was great! Our guide (Anna) was fabulous - very informative and really knew the topics with super clear English. The walk up the Acropolis was much easier than I (old guy) expected. We stopped often for details about various lower parts of the Acropolis. The history was very interesting.
Excellent tour
Margery_M, Jun 2023
