Know More about this tour

Visit the Acropolis, the landmark of Greece! You will enter the Acropolis from the south slope so as to avoid the crowds and also to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. As you begin to ascend the sacred hill a breathtaking view of the city below will unfold. Your guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as, the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple, the Agrippa Monument and the surrounding monuments such as the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos, Mars Hill, and Pnyx Hill.

You will then enjoy some free time for exploring and picture taking at the Acropolis will be provided after your Acropolis tour. For the guided tour of the Agora you will meet your tour guide at about 13:45 in front of the Acropolis canteen, which is located exactly opposite the main exit. You will also be advised by your tour guide. Before the Agora tour starts, you can grab a snack or a drink from the canteen as the tour schedule does not include time for a leisure lunch. You will then meet with your tour guide and continue your tour to the Ancient Agora.

The Ancient Agora - the heart of the Ancient City! After your Acropolis tour you will have a short break to get a snack or beverage, as the tour schedule does not include time for a leisure lunch. You will then walk down to the Ancient Agora which was the commercial, political, and financial center of Ancient Athens. The walk through the monuments will offer you the sense of traveling back in time. You will visit the Hephaestus Temple - the best preserved Greek Temple from the 5th century BC, and you will see the wonderful church of the 12 Apostles, the Temple of Apollo Patroos, the Stoa of Zeus, the Altar of Zeus, and with your knowledgeable and professional guide the ancient stones will come alive.

The Ancient Agora is the place where Socrates, Plato and many world renowned philosophers walked and taught. Your licensed guide will then take you to the Attalos Museum which is worthwhile visiting as it houses artifacts of great historical value such as the IDs of the ancient Greeks, and the original measures and weights for the Market inspectors. The tour ends at the Ancient Agora at about 3pm.

  • Excellent tour! Our guide was Stavros, who was very knowledgeable about the locations and rather than just explaining what we were seeing, he worked hard to explain their significance and impact on our modern world. This is the place where our modern ideas of democracy and education began, and Stavros helped to put all of this into perspective with our own experiences today. This tour does require a lot of walking, and climbing steep ramps and steps.

  • We enjoyed the tour very much. Nikos was very knowledgeable and did great explaining things. Set a nice pace for walking since we had to ascend quite a ways to the top of the acropolis. I'm also glad we did the Agora and learned about it's purpose and place in culture. Could have skipped the museum.

  • Was a well run and organised tour. The tour guide was very informative and knew his stuff but was a bit too detailed for my liking. It was very hot so maybe that was why I was impatient. The Acropolis bit was great just the extra Museum tour was too much.

  • This tours was amazing. Artemis, our guide, was knowledgable and went at a great pace. This is worth doing.

  • The tour was great. Meeting up was fairly chaotic, as there were many different tours all coordinated by the same woman in the same place. You had to kind of be assertive and pay attention to not get left behind. But after that the tour was great and the guide very knowledgeable (or just a good bs'er)

  • Our tour guide Aristotle was very enthusiastic and really knowledgeable. The tour was well paced with timed breaks in shade. We totally enjoyed the wonderful tour. One input for prospective visitors is to tour the Ancient Agora on a separate tour/at a different time or even on your own, particularly if you are a family with younger kids. The combined trip is a wonderful timesaver but a little too much after an extensive tour of the Acropolis. For reference we went on this tour mid-August and tour start time was a little before noon. The tour was conducted by Athens walking tours.

  • Excellent tour! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it and were quite impressed with the knowledge and understanding of our guide - a man whose name we have somehow forgotten. He did a wonderful job explaining each of the sites on the way up to the Acropolis as well as the ones on top. We continued with him to the Areopagus and the Agora and he was extremely accommodating and able to answer any and all questions - even spending more time with us that was allotted. And we did indeed skip a VERY long line to get into the Acropolis area. Highly recommended. We would not suggest trying to tour the Acropolis on your own - unless you are an expert, you'll miss too many important locations and historical explanations.

  • Our guide Heremes was great.

  • Fantastic sites such amazing history brought to life but incredibly knowledgeable guide
