5 stars for how easy it was to skip ticket lines and enter sites. the ticket was available offline. and the small map provided with it was helpful. also the fact that it is valid for 5 days. for anybody interested to buy this combo, i would recommend to visit the acropolis+slopes in the morning, because it gets busy during the day and there is a lot to see. the only site which was sort of a disappointment was the ancient cemetery: the grass was overgrown and you had to really use your imagination to make out the different ruins. I would recommend buying this ticket. PS we visited during January 2023.

Excellent wayfinding and putting these all in one pack made for a super simple couple of walking days to explore ancient ruins of temples in Athens. I’d do it again.

Angela, our guide, gave detailed explanations throughout the walk. Our questions were also answered promptly. Thank you Angela!!

A great way of buying a skip the line ticket for all the major ancient sites in Athens.

Everything was perfect Always fast entry which saves lots of time
