Our guide Niobe was amazing! She had so much insight into the history of the Acropolis and how the ancient Greeks would have used it at the time. I was worried the walk up would be very strenuous but she took lots of breaks on the way and it was pretty easy! Definitely recommend.

The guide was a very nice woman, she was our mom, she told a lot of beautiful stories, regularly shaded us and has a lot of passion for her work. Super good trip, definitely do it because later in the day it is too hot on the Acropolis …… recommended
