Know More about this tour

Explore the most famous symbol of Athens like youve never imagined. The best of Acropolis is waiting for you in this 100% private walking tour by your very own professional guide.

Kick-off your tour at one of the most famous meeting points in Athens: the Monastiraki square. Located right in the heart of the city center, youll find a unique blend of styles, eras and cultures. Lively and always dynamic all it takes is a 360 degree turn to see the very history of Athens surrounding you. Admire ancient landmarks, like The acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Roman agora, Ancient agora, the Evzones, and the 'Tomb of the unknown soldier.'

Stroll towards the archaeological site of the Hadrian's library, once an impressive construction of extraordinary richness. Walk towards the Gate of Athena and admire the Roman agora where you can see the use of the ruins through the ages. Reconstruct the past in the present, as you discover how thousands of years of history and different civilizations formed the life in Athens.

Head to the most famous building in the Roman agora: an eight-sided marble tower that is a combined water clock, sundial, and a weathervane. Continue wandering down hidden alleyways and discover Athens from an insiders perspective. You will gain an understanding of daily life in the city, where past and present still mingle.

Make your way towards Plaka, the most ancient part of the city. Check out some of the oldest taverns of Athens that have been meeting points for over two decades. Get ready to enter the tiny village of Anafiotika, a tranquil oasis isolated from Plakas buzz. Enjoy the cluster of small houses built on the slopes of the Acropolis. It's like being on a Greek Island.

Let your private guide show you iconic monuments that hold an even more impressive story. Stroll by one of the most picturesque Greek Orthodox churches of Athens, and youll understand why this is a local favorite for weddings, baptisms or relaxing walks.

Arrive at your final stop and enter the incredible Acropolis through the less touristy south slope. Whats even better is that theres no need to wait in line! Your private guide has already purchased your tickets in advance. Just pay your host directly.

    We had only one free day in Athens and wanted to see the Acropolis. Stefano, our guide, was wonderful because of his historical and cultural knowledge base. He was most patient and answered our many questions with clarity. Stefanie was always concerned for our safety making sure we walked on stable surfaces. At the end of the tour he gave us clear directions for our next destination - The Mew Acropolis Museum. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are lucky enough to have Stefano as your guide.

    Unfortunately, there were some problems with organizing the tour. We were much earlier in the assembly point for our private tour, but the tour guide came about 30 minutes later than the set time. We had to call the agency Withlocals to clarify the situation. Then, the tour began with a delay. The guide (Kostas) was competent, but I would recommend for such kind of visits that he would be able to offer a more fascinating and emotional lecture. Especially, when we waited patiently for him to appear at his workplace and we have lost some of our time and money, he would at least have to compensate us with a fascinating presentation of the information and at least to have apologized for the delay. But we are generally pleased to have touched the rich history of Athens. Thank you
