Our guide (I do not remember his name) was amazing and we could have not been more pleased with the service or the tour. When we got to the office for the tour we were greeted with a smile and were introduced to our guide and given an ear piece and a lanyard with a little device that made it easy to hear our guide while we were walking. Our guide was very informative and answered all of our questions. He was even nice enough and offered to take pictures of the couples when we got to the top of the Acropolis. I could not recommend this tour or the Get your guide app any more because everything was super easy to book and you clearly see what you were getting with your booking.

Ana was an excellent tour guide in our trip to the Acropolis. I felt that I was able to return home and give a great description of the Acropolis not only because of her knowledge, but also the way she presented it. Ana made sure to make plenty of stops (in the shade) when giving us information. It didn't seem like any of our group members were struggling to keep up. She is funny and keeps things interesting! I didn't realize that I hadn't booked the tour for the indoor museum as well (make sure you do if you want it) but she was so kind to help guide us to where we needed to go so we could see the museum. I am so glad we had Ana as our guide and I would recommend this tour for sure so that you know what history you are stepping into!

10/10 would recommend! I can't remember the name of our tour guide but she was awesome. She was incredibly knowledgeable and answered so many of our questions. She was also attentive to our groups needs and always stopped in the shade to give us history background at each step. If you visit the Acropolis on your own, you can probably go up & down within an hour. But I'm glad we did it with a guide to learn the history. I also love doing these group tours to meet people from other parts of the world!
