Full description
Step into ancient Greece on this in-depth walking tour of historical central Athens, including the Acropolis World Heritage Site and other key monuments such as Hadrian's Arch, the Temple of Zeus, and the Parthenon.

Hicimos el tour con Mrs Nelly, una chica muy agradable, muy simpática y atenta. Se esforzó en hablarnos en español a pesar de que el tour era en inglés. El tour era de 3h y estábamos muy Agusto y se extendió más rato. Nos explicó todo muy bien y nos enseñó muchas cosas de la cultura griega y nos respondió a todas nuestras dudas. La recomendamos al 100%. Excelente profesional.
