Know More about this tour

Acropolis Walking Tour (3 hours):
Meet your guide in Syntagma square, and kick off your tour outside the Greek Parliament and the Tomb of the unknown soldier, where youll watch the statuesque Evzones (the presidential guard) perform the Changing of the Guard ceremony in their eye-catching uniforms.

Next, cross through the National gardens and catch sight of Zappeion Congress Hall. Pass by iconic sights like the Temple of olympian zeus (Olympieion) and Hadrians Arch on your way to Plaka, the citys Old Town. Have your camera ready as you wander the labyrinthine streets flanked with neoclassical architecture, Byzantine churches and bustling boutiques.

From Plaka, make the short stroll along the Dionyssiou Areopagitou walkway to The acropolis of Athens, a UNESCO World Heritagelisted citadel perched high above the city on a rocky outcrop. Pay the entrance fee (own expense) and then head inside with your guide for a glimpse into the world of Ancient Greece.

See highlights such as the Temple of athena nike, Propylaea gateway and the Parthenon, the Acropolis crowning jewel. Pause for photos and listen to your guides commentary about the historical significance behind each ruin. Your tour concludes at The acropolis summit, leaving you free to continue sightseeing at your leisure.

Cape Sounion and Temple of poseidon Half-Day Trip (4 hours):
Around 2:45pm, board your coach for the drive to Cape Sounion, the southernmost tip of the Attica Peninsula, passing the idyllic beaches of the Saronic Gulf along the way. When you arrive, walk over to see the astounding Temple of poseidon, a gleaming white beacon perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the sea. The site was an important temple for the ancient Greeks, who once flocked here to worship Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea.

Admire incredible views across the Aegean Sea and look out for the island of Kea that you can often see on a clear day. Hear facts from your guide, such as how the temple was built in 44 BC, and see many of its original Doric columns still standing, including one that features graffiti left by English Romantic poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s.

After your tour, youll be driven back to your Athens Hotel or the closest point to your accommodation.

    Had a great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable!! Loved it and had a wonderful experience. Wear comfortable shoes since there is lot of walking.

  • 10-Oct-2019

    this walking city tour can be done on your own, not so interesting just walking
    Poseidon tour in afternoon was more interesting and nice driving along the coast of sea

    Excellent. We were unable to make the morning tour, but caught up with the tour in the afternoon.
    It was excellent!!! The Temple of Poseidon is a hidden treasure and gets you outside of the city! Highly recommend!

    Excellent tour.
    Very nicely organised and on time.
    Both the guides were super and had excellent knowledge of Greek history.

    We had an excellent walking tour of many beautiful places in Athens with Eleni. She kept a good pace that wasn't too fast and kept us informed of the sights as we went along. There was ample time for photo taking along the way. At the Acropolis we were given the tour and the history before being given time to ourselves to further explore and take pictures. The afternoon trip to Cape Sounion was very scenic and the Temple of Poseidon was breathtaking to behold. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

    An outstanding experience! Be prepared for lots of walking and strenuous hiking on narrow walkways and slippery marble. Go anytime other than the summer as it becomes very crowded then. Carry water with you! It was remarkable to see the Acropolis lit up at night! It was a remarkable experience! I think they should sell t-shirts saying, “I climbed the Acropolis”!!!

    The morning walking tour was excellent, especially because our guide Dora! She was astounding. It was like being transported in time. The Acropolis is magnificent, as well as the views from Cape Sounion. I recommend this tour.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    I had a wonderful time on both tours! Knowledgeable guides. Walked away with great experience and memories!

    Giota our guide to the Acropolis and walking tour was great. She engaged with everyone and even with the young children. Her knowledge of Athens and Greek history kept us enthralled and she even gave us bits of Grecian gossip along the way. She obviously enjoys her job. We would highly recommend this tour, it is worth the price.
    However we were not impressed with the second tour, the guide to Cape Sounion was so boring that several people fell asleep during her commentary. And the Temple was just another Temple.
    We gave a very good score because of the Acropolis walking tour.

  • 03-Apr-2019

    Both the Acropolis Walking Tour + afternoon tour to Cape Sounion were perfectly organized, the guide was very friendly and competent to answer any questions of the participants. She gave comprehensive information on both tours.
