Know More about this tour

Join up with your expert guide at the prearranged meeting point, then set off at a leisurely pace along the tree-lined streets to the foothills of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis of Athens — the ancient citadel and archaeological site that dominates the city.

Make for the south slope of the acropolis to avoid the main crowds, then pay your entrance fee and head inside to see some of the world’s finest archaeological treasures. On the way, visit the Theatre of Dionysus, a 5th-century amphitheater that is often cited as the birthplace of the performing arts. Imagine the grand space filled with Ancient Greek theatergoers as you perch on one of the stone seats and hear about its long history from your guide. Then, stop at Dionysus Sanctuary, a site dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility who was also the patron god of the Greek stage.

Inside the acropolis, ascend the sacred hill, stopping to see and learn about important sights such as the world-famous Parthenon, Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike, a monument built to represent Athens’ ambition as the most powerful Greek city.

At the top of the acropolis, take in sweeping views of the city below and listen as your guide shares knowledgeable insight of the citadel’s ruins including excavation details. Then, hear more about surrounding monuments such as Mars Hill, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, Philopapos Hill and the ancient agora — a meeting place that once served as the heart of ancient Athens.

Your tour concludes at the acropolis' summit, leaving you free to continue exploring the site at your own leisure.

  • An interesting tour. More breaks were needed. Bring snacks, we were starving by the time we were taken to lunch.

  • Amazing your! We learnt so much and would highly recommend for anyone coming to Athens!

  • Hermes was our guide and very informative and fun. Wear your good walking shoes...that marble gets slippery!

  • Had a good time on tour. Was great to use the Segway instead of walking. Guide was very knowledgeable about Athens. Great to do with a group or a couple.

  • It was extremely hot in Athens, and we had seriously limited time!! We had a very knowledgeable guide, and stopped in shady spots to hear what she had to say. This could have been avoided if only headphones were used! It saves a lot of time. We had to be at the airport around midday, which meant we just about reached the Parthenon before having to start heading back and to the Airport. This holiday has taught me one thing for sure - not to book ANY excursion where headphones are not used! Next time will ask about that first before booking.

  • Konstantin was amazing. Loved the tour.

  • Excellent tour guide. A wealth of information. Be sure to bring water and a hat. Wear sunscreen. Highly recommend this tour!

  • This tour was good. Our tour guide, while very long-winded, was knowledgable and very friendly. What I would change about this tour is the time of day. It was so extremely hot that I really didn't even care what the tour guide was saying by the time we got to the top. I just wanted it to be over and to be in some air conditioned space! I searched for an earlier or later tour time to avoid being out at the hottest part of the day, but could not find a better time. This tour would be better offered right at opening or at the end of the day. Otherwise, it was very cool to see some of ancient Greece.

  • THe Athens walking tours are very pro. Despina Savvidou is the best guide ever . She is well informed . She transformed Death Rocks in beautiful experience . She made me dreamed. I felt each moment as if I am traveling in the history.
    Much love from Beirut
