With the pass for Athens (visit of the Acropolis and the museums and transport) it is very practical and economical. There are no details, however, for tickets valid for 3 days or 5. And to know which tourist bus to take, because there are three of them. It's yellow.

Dora is an extraordinary guide, bilingual in French, extremely cultivated and who likes to share her knowledge. She is adorable with children, knows small and big stories, in short, an exciting time !! We recommend it a thousand times! Thanks Dora

Our guide was a nice guide with a lot of knowledge about the mythology of Athens and the surrounding area. We have seen all the sights and were actually short of time because we lingered too long at the Acropolis.

We still have to go and exchange our “tickets” for passes We had to take a taxi to get there

Very nice coupon. I strongly recommend it because you can save a lot.
