We booked private 4 hour tour to get an immersive look at history and temples atop Acropolis. Our guide Zakia met us at 9 am and we spent 2 hours exploring the architecture and the temples of the Acropolis before moving onto the superb museum where the ancient artifacts are laid out really well and just fascinating. Zakia was friendly individual really passionate and knowledgeable about different periods of ancient Greek history, architecture, art, culture, gods and myths. We spent just over 4 hours all together but came away with a really tremendous view of ancient Athens and its place and role in western thought and history. Expensive but worth it particularly as our guide Zakia made it so interesting.
