    Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. He explained the history of the area and the artifacts.Climbing the very steep and slippery steps to the Acropolis could be challenging, but it was worth it. The view was amazing. We did have a very bad experience after the tour concluded. Our guide didn't lead us back down from the Acropolis site. He just abandoned us
    and said goodbye.. . We had planned on just returning down the same route that we went up. He said not to, and take an alternate route down.. We did and made a wrong turn and ended up completely lost , with narrow roads going in every directions, and no one we asked spoke English. We finally found a taxi and told him that we needed to get to the meeting point to catch our shuttle back to our cruise ship. We knew we were only a few blocks away, but just wanted to get there quickly. The taxi driver started driving down back alleys, and in neighborhoods that we knew we shouldn't be in. We asked him several times why it was taking so long and he just mumbled something about road blocks. We were getting very nervous because it was obvious he was just running up the cab fare. We insisted he take us to our meeting point , he stopped the taxi, opened the door and told us to walk 2 blocks and turn left. He insisted we owed him 30 euros for a ride that should of only cost a fraction of that. Now we are totally lost and panicking because we had to get to our meeting point and didn't know how far away we were. Luckily we met an older, honest taxi driver who showed us how to get there.. We were so upset from the experience, it ruined our whole visit to Athens.This all could of been avoided if the tour guide had just taken us back to our meeting place instead of abandoning us..

    Adonis was a very well educated and informative guide. He showed us all over Athens and hiked the Acropolis with us.

    Vicki, our Guide, was superior. Super knowledgeable, but did not overload us with too much information. Highly recommend this tour! Lots of walking, but at a good pace for all.

    Our guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and caring ( a person in our group had difficulties in walking that hot day) but he made allowances for that. The only suggestion I can make is that they were too far away from the ship's gate and we could not see their sign. Other guides were just outside the gate with the names of the persons they were meeting). In the end I walked 100metres
    to find their name in a small card in the bus windscreen. But once our group of 6 were in, we had a very good service.

    After figuring some things out the tour went very well...Thr tour was acually in 3 parts with 3 different guides which we didn't expect and was a bit odd but it turned out to be fine. The last part was the best - the walking tour of the Parthenon with Alexandros - he was OUTSTANDING. He was young, enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

    This was awesome. We had our guide named Sophia, and I hope I had her name right. She was very knowledgeable with the histories and spoke a good English. She made sure to answer any questions if our group had any.

    I should have read this tour better. I was surprised that the price of the tour didn't include the entrance fees52 euros for the two of us that had to be paid in cash at the start of the tour. The tour guide we had was very good, but once we got to the top of the Acropolis, half of the group had purchased a different tour that also went to Acropolis museum. We didn't have that tour so the guide said goodby to use at the top of the Acropolis and we had to make our own way back to the meeting place to get the cabs back to the ship.

    It was rushed tour. Not recommended for those who cannot walk fast. It was an ok tour. Will l fo it again with this company? No l will not. Maybe it was the particular tour guide we got that day but this tour was too rushed.
