Sofia was very good as the guide. Learnt so much, was very hot but saw so much. my daughter enjoyed it too. great experience
This was an excellent way to see a number of sites - the tomb of the unknown soldier, temple of olympian zeus/hadrian's gate, and the acropolis and acropolis museum. Our guide really wove the story of the ancient Greeks together in a way that going alone and just reading signs at the museum wouldn't have done. There was some standing around waiting and confusion throughout the tour because each portion is "sectioned off" with people leaving/joining depending on what they booked, and we got put in the wrong group and then switched around at one point, but otherwise everything was smooth and our guide was great. I also didn't understand when I booked that the entry fees were not included - not sure if i missed that in the description - you have to bring Euros for those day of.
Take an unmissable city tour around some of the most essential historic landmarks in the cradle of Western civilization, with this culturally rich Athens gift experience. You’ll meet your guide at the Syntagma metro station, and see some of the archaeological discoveries that were made during the metro system’s construction, before heading on to Parliament House and the Monument to the Unknown Soldier. Watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony, before exploring the beautiful National Garden and the neo-classical Zappeion Hall. Here you will see the surviving columns of the Temple of Zeus, and Hadrian’s Arch Tower.
Entering Plaka, you’ll walk along Dionyssiou Areopagitou to the legendary Acropolis and tour its many significant monuments, including the Parthenon, Propylaia, Mars Hill and the Nike Temple. The tour finishes at the New Acropolis Museum, where you can see over 4000 objects that have been unearthed on this site. What sets this Athens Acropolis tour apart, we feel, is the level of knowledge of the guide, and the number of sites you’ll visit. It’s an absolute must when visiting Athens.
