A great walking tour of the Acropolis by Stelios who was an interesting and engaging guide. This is a great way to learn more about the sights of the Acropolis. Stelios also gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant in the area.

Doreena was a great tour guide. So knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Acropolis. This was definitely a worthwhile tour vs just walking around the ruins without all the context. We had a small group of 7, and the head sets worked well to hear everything. The time of day (3 pm) was perfect - it was warm on the walk up and windy and chilly once up there, and not crowded at all. Doreena gave us good directions as far as where the WCs were located (in the old museum building), where to get some good pictures on the back side, and the two different ways to exit. I liked the option where you turned right instead (vs the way we came up, near the Acropolis Museum), where you will end up at the base of Mars Hill. I would recommend doing that as well for another view of the Acropolis (though be careful of the very slippery rocks). Highly recommend this tour, and well worth the money paid.

Beautiful Acropolis and visit in the afternoon is a very convenient time with less visitors and heat. The guide was very good, excellent storyteller and is passionate about the matter. She gave an entertaining tour full of stories. For us unfortunately, we were traveling with my daughter in a strolley and it was not so convenient. Acropolis has strict rules about strolleys, so we needed to go up with the elevator, which is oposite of the part where the tour started and missed the beginning of the tour. Need to say that this had nothing to do with the tour organization, but we would have wished for more flexibility from the Acropolis to leave the things/trolleys in all entry points.

We booked an English Acropolis tour (2 hours). Everything went smoothly, booking, check-in, tour. The tour was in a small group. Especially the guide (Stelios) was great. Besides English, he also spoke German. He explained everything very well and comprehensibly with a lot of passion. He took his time and answered questions well. We would book again.

Marisa we great! Very informative yet lighthearted tour— not too serious. Perfect amount of time as well. A few people arrived late to the tour office that delayed our departure by a tad, and the headsets at times were a a little difficult to hear, especially with guide wearing mask were my only reasons I didn’t rate a 5.

We did the 2-hour Acropolis Tour Afternoon today and Artemis was our Tour Guide. Artemis gave a very thorough tour and told us the rich history and stories behind each ancient site. She was passionate, knowledgeable, friendly, and she made the tour very interesting. We learned so much history and interesting facts about Greece. Artemis also answered all of our questions and gave us tips on the good spots to take photos! We could tell that Artemis put a lot of effort into her tour presentation, and she really did a fantastic job! Thank you again, Artemis!
