Acropolis must-do
Louis_V

A must do if you want to know more of the history behind the Acropolis. Our guide, Dorina, was clearly passionate about her subject and struck the balance between providing loads of information without becoming boring. Highly recommended. Beware of the fineprint though. We missed the information regarding the non-inclusion of entrance tickets, resulting in a somewhat unpleasant surprise at the start of the tour. Nevertheless worth every Euro spent.

Best way to visit the Acropolis

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Akropolis and it’s museum with our tour guide who was very passionate about her city Athens. She took us in a time capsule describing the different eras of Greek history and mythology. The length of the tour was also ideal.

Pretty decent tour

Ok. Tour guide, Kimon, was very good, informative and professional. The tour was a decent summary of the main monuments. The tour does skip a lot of the smaller monuments on the acropolis. If your looking for a walkthrough of the acropolis and then time for photos, this is a good. If you want to explore the acropolis and learn about it in-depth, this tour wouldn't suit.

WOW! We gained so much more from this experience by having a wonderful guide! Well worth every euro! Just do it! Only negative is many of the security personnel at the museum act like nazis. Barking orders at children and adults, rather than being polite and courteous. It really represents the museum poorly. They need some serious leadership training!
