An incredibly nice experience with Mr. Stelios. A very nice and personable guide showed us all his knowledge in more than two hours planned, with a lot of stories on the side, different anecdotes and with the further details. We were extremely lucky because we practically had a private tour with him. It was very hot, but Mr. Stelios endured it very well and tirelessly passed on a lot of knowledge to us. He speaks perfect German because he grew up in Germany himself but has been living in Athens again for a while. Absolutely a recommendation, it couldn't have been better for us and that's why we recommend it to anyone who wants to really inquire about the Acropolis.

The tour was totally worth it for us. Due to only a few tourists, we had a private tour of the Acropolis and had super nice impressions. A big compliment to our guide Christina. She explained the story to us so clearly that we will never forget our stay on the Acropolis!

Going with a guide is a MUST to visit the Acropolis, so you can really understand the visit. Our guide was very good. Answered all the questions from our small group. he also focused on the children in the group to make sure they enjoyed the visit. 5 stars

Unser Guide Stylianos war sensationell. Er brannte für das Thema und hat es geschafft, den Teilnehmern 5000 Jahre griechischer Geschichte in 2 Stunden anschaulich zu erklären. Wirklich sehr empfehlenswert!

A guide just for the two of us, very pleasant journey through the city. It helped us then for the visit of the museum and the acropolis.
