Overview
There’s no better way to experience Athens’ compact historic center than on foot. Hear lore and legends of this ancient city as you stroll from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier through the National Garden, past the Temple of Zeus, and up to the Acropolis, with views of Athens’ old town Plaka district. Your guide escorts you around the Acropolis, but entrance fees are at your own expense.

It was a waste of money! We downloaded the tour before we left. It wouldn’t play. We spoke to a man half way up and he said it would only work at the top of the Acropolis. It did but only sporadically. Caused us way too much frustration. Not worth it!

No visit to Greece would be complete without a visit to historical Athens and the Acropolis. Yes, everyone has seen pictures of these sites, but being there to see it in person is entirely different. Listening to the tour guides explain how these sites were built and what is

This was a great tour, particularly if you have never been to Athens or have limited time. It hits all the highlights, is well paced and the guide was outstanding. She really knew the history yet made it very accessible and put things into context.

I took the tour today. I arrived at the hotel Amalia at 9:00 because I did not want to be late for a tour that is scheduled at 9:30. To my dismay it didn't actually start until 9:50am. I was informed it officially starts at 9:45, not 9:30 ( the next 5 mins we spent waiting for

Hello from Chat Tours, We would like to clarify this case . Our historical Acropolsi Walking tour departs at 09:45 am from Amalia Hotel . The meeting time at the Amalia Hotel is 09:30 am . In these fifteen minutes , we have to check in the whole group and inform you about your tour schedule and details. We cannot leave before 09:45 am especially when we are missing somebody . But we always depart at 09:45 am as we have to attend the changing of the guards at the Parliament at 10:00 am . As far as the part of Plaka area, we note at your vouchers that we are walking to Acropolis area thpugh Plaka. It is not written that we provide fully guided tour at Plaka . You have the chance to explore it after the end of the guided tour of Acropolsi having information given by your guide. Last but not least ,the entrance fee is clearly not included at this product as a lot of customers have already tickets of the site and in this way they do not have to pay again the ticket when they purchase this package tour. We hope that we explained with details your concerns. Always at your disposal, Angelina Skyla.
