Dee met us at the docks with the van and a driver. She was very knowledgeable and explained what everything was as we drove into Athens. She took us to Olympic stadium where we stopped for a few pictures. She timed it just right so we got to see the changing of the guards at the Presidental Palace before we were off the the Acropolis. Lots of steps but we're took it slow and it was well worth the hike!

The tour guide stayed with us for the whole tour and spoke wonderful English. She navigated the crowds and procured our tickets without any trouble. She stayed with one of our travelers who was unable to go to the top of the Parthenon. We never felt that there was no one looking out for us in the sweltering heat. Her explanations made all the difference in seeing the sites. The van was air conditioned spacious and a Godsend as we traveled with little ones in tow. Most happy we took this tour!!! No regrets! Worth every dime!!! - especially With the heat and excess crowds. I tell all my patients that this is the only way to see Athens and the Parthenon.

Athens is very crowded this time of the year. This Shore Excursion picked us up directly from our ship and we were able to see all the highlights of Athens without standing in line. I highly recommend this Excursion.

We arrived to Athens from our cruise ship and met our tour guide at the port. She picked up our party of six and took us to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Olympic stadium which was used for the 1st modern Olympics in 1896. She then took us to see the Parthenon and two amphitheaters near the Acropolis. Amazing excursion with our guide who was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Our guide Val was waiting for us outside the port terminal. There were 6 in our group and were driven in a small bus that could hold about 20 people. Val was very knowledgeable about the history of Athens, and was careful to point out everything she could as we drove to the Acropolis. Entry fee was 20 Euros. The climb up was not as steep as we anticipated but we had to watch our footing the entire way as the path was rocky and with marble rocks that could be slippery, and some steps were high steps. The crowd climbing up was very pushy and rude. It felt like a mob scene on the top half of the climb. There were no railings to help. Once on top, Val carefully explained the significance of everything and the site was awesome also. After the Acropolis, we just drove back to our ship. The entire tour was 4 hours,
