    Our guide was wonderful! I was concerned about the walk up but she brought us up gradually with several stops along the way.

  • 07-Aug-2023

    The tour was great, easy to find. Our guide was knowledgeable and VERY helpful. We learned a lot, and enjoyed the scenery.

    Eva was a very knowledgeable tour guide. She provided lots of interesting information and pointed out areas that were good for photos. It was very hot and she did a good job of building in stops in the shade as we worked our way up the acropolis.

    Extremely hot that made the day very uncomfortable. Guide could have shortened her dialogue in the early parts to get us up top faster knowing the extreme heat and crowds. She didn’t allow us time to take individual pictures in front of the Parthenon. Well worth the visit but on a cooler day

  • 30-Jun-2023

    Guide was very knowledgeable and came with pictures of what ancient structures may have looked like back in the day. It was a hot day and she made sure to utilize shaded spots for lengthier explanations.

    First, the good: Seeing the Acropolis, Parthenon, etc was wonderful. Now the bad: this tour is offered at $69 per person. I paid $197 for two. Additionally, when the tour concluded, everyone went to the museum. We were not allowed as they said we didn’t pay for that. Everyone else did and paid LESS than what we paid. Repeated emails to Viator went unanswered. My recommendation is to secure your own tickets and save lots of money.

    Alexandra was amazing! Very knowledgeable, open to questions, and pleasant to listen to. We took frequent stops going up to the Acropolis, giving chances for rest and sharing info. Would highly recommend!

  • 14-Jun-2023

    I did not get a chance to take my tour due to booking error. I was extremely disappointed in my experience

  • 09-Jun-2023

    Alexandra was a great guide, providing lots of interesting historical details in a fascinating storytelling way that kept everyone engaged. The entry was relatively quick, and we went in a route that minimized being stuck in big crowds.
