The trip is split into 2 parts. We began with a tour of the Old Town with our guide Georgos. He provided great insight into the neighbourhoods we toured. We then were led by Vassiliki through the Acropolis up to the Parthenon. Very informative. A great way to spend time in

There are so many things to see and do around Athens, and especially if you're staying near the Acropolis, exploring the ancient and intricate alleys of the Plaka district and Monastiraki market area is best done on foot, but can be a challenge knowing where to start. For our

Thank you very much for your lovely and detailed comment! Aristotle is indeed a great guide and person and a trained archaeologist as most of our local licensed guides. We are glad that you enjoyed your tour since we work to offer you the ultimate experience. It is true that during the high season the lines can get really long, so the free skip-the-line service we provide to our guests is quite convenient! Would love to host you in one of other tours soon!
