based on 6,525 reviews

We had an amazing and knowledgeable tour guide who answered our many questions - highly recommend this tour to all those who want to find out information about the acropolis and it’s sites. We made sure to leave a small tip of appreciation at the end.

This was a very informative but enjoyable tour. Our guide obviously had a lot of knowledge and passion about ancient Greek history. I would highly recommend it.

The audio tour greatly enhanced our walk around the Acropolis, Acropolis museum and other monuments. Also used it for the National Archeological museum.

The walk was wonderfully calibrated - it's not easy, nor is it too difficult - and the sights are simply the finest imaginable.

It was very humbling to walk where the Apostle Paul walked.
