I booked the tour the second time. Meeting point was like last year at the Fresko Yoghurt bar right below the acropolis. Entry fees are not includet so I had to pay there ... a know fact. Perfect choice for me, because they had as well the 5-day-save ticket including acropolic, ancient agora, roman agora, hadrians library, Keramikos in stock, so I could buy this ticket. Out tour guide was Hermes. He was very well informed, a great story teller, aswered our questions and was very caretaking. The acrocpolis and the agora are a must see. We had a great time and there was plenty of time for taking pictures and enjoying the great views. All in all I whould strongly recommend to take this tour. If you have time only for one tour - this is the right choice. And afterwards you should visit the new arcopolis museum. Don't forget to take with you enough water. Comfortable sport shoes are strongly recommended and mind your steps at the acropolis ... the stones are quite slippery.

This is definitely a walking tour, so make sure to wear your tennis shoes or comfortable shoes. The time on viator was wrong, so we missed our tour but they were able to offer us a different tour to make up for it. Our guide was good but she rambled quite often about the same thing multiple times. Overall, not my most favorite tour we have done on this trip, but I still would recommend doing it.

This tour was great, my wife and I did the tour in May and it was not to hot so we enjoyed it very much. The guide that we had was great she had a lot of knowledge and was easy to speak to. Her English was really good and she always looked for shade while explaining things. I recommend the tour to all who visit Athens so they can get a thorough understanding of the Acropolis and all the buildings.

Our tour guide was excellent. She was very educated on the sites and history. She took the tour at the right pace, stopping enough to explain everything while not going at a breakneck speed.

Our tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and shared information on other locations in Greece we were visiting. It was great to have conversation and suggestions to improve our trip! The tour is good, just got to be a long day. Acropolis is amazing to see and very enjoyable. By the time we got to the Agora and Museum, we were spent.
