  • An amazingly informative tour that made history come alive.

  • Great tour -- the guide was wonderful!!! It was very hot and they provided water and stopped in the shade as necessary. Learned a lot and the new museum was lovely!!!

  • Great stories and details well told. Unbelievably beautiful and haunting statuary. Climb to the top carefully staged to accommodate older people and the heat, for everyone.

  • The meeting place was easy to find. We had Aristotle as our guide. He is very knowledgeable since he is an archaeologist. At times it was a little difficult to hear since it was very crowded but overall a good experience!

  • The guide was a fountain of information. He had pictures that showed us what the Parthenon looked like when it was just built. The time flew by, and we even went over the 3.5 hours. Friends who didn't take the tour couldn't understand how we could be at the Acropolis for so long, but I loved every minute of the tour. And I'm sure I got so much more out of the trip than people who try to go it alone.

  • Awesome tour with knowledgeable guide who had perfect English!!

  • brilliant

  • Our guide Ermis was extremely knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy teaching Greek history. It was a cultural holiday so the entrance was free which made it very crowded. Other than that, worthhwile tour.

  • Great tour and fantastic tour guide Ellen was very informative and answered all our questions and also got heaps of amazing photos.

  • Great guide! Super knowledgeable and with great energy. I am so glad I went to the Acropolis and the museum with a guide. Gave me so much insight for the significance of this magnificent site.
