The tour was excellent. It starts early in the morning which makes things better as it starts getting very hot by the time it finishes. Our guide Despina was super knowledgable and energetic. It really helped bringing all of our limited Athens knowledge together. There’s a bathroom and water stop included, which is great! As a separate note, the ticket does not include the other sites that are outside the Acropolis, so you may choose to do those separately later on the same day.

I enjoyed the smaller group size. Watching large groups walk around like confused zombies made me realize that I made the right choice with Get Your Guide. The meeting spot was easy to find. We had enough time to buy water & have espresso. The first incline is the hardest, so be prepared for that. When you guide tells you the stones are slippery, believe them!!
