Traveler Tips


  • "It's definitely better to go at 4PM since it's cooler at that time and there's a great breeze at the top." See review
  • "The paths were quite slippery in some areas, so it was a challenge to get to the top." See review
  • "Beware as there is a good amount of walking to do but that’s the case with the ruins in general, not just This tour." See review

Excellent!

Maria is an excellent historian and tour guide and really knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions. Really interesting to do when you visit Athens. As a Greek, I had seen the Acropolis many times but never with a guide, so I learned so much more now. As an extra, the Acropolis in the afternoon looks even more magical!
