  • Athens: Guided Tour of Ancient Agora and Agora Museum

    8. Athens: Guided Tour of Ancient Agora and Agora Museum

    Visit the cradle of democracy and explore one of the most important sites of the antiquity, the birthplace of philosophy. The ancient agora was the commercial, political and financial heart of ancient Athens and is the place where Socrates, Plato and many world-known philosophers walked and taught their thinking.  You will visit the Hephaestus Temple, the best preserved Greek Temple from the 5th century BC and you will see the wonderful church of the 12 Apostles, the Temple of Apollo Patroos, the Stoa of Zeus, the Altar of Zeus. With the input of your knowledgeable guide, the ancient stones will come alive.  Then your licensed guide will take you to the Attalos Museum, which is worthwhile visiting as it houses artifacts of great historical value.

    We took this 90 min tour on our last day in Athens to basically fill in time. Am so glad we did as we would never have visited the Ancient Agora or area if we hadn’t. Dorina was a fabulous guide explaining the history of the area and the ruins. After walking up to Hephaestus Temple we went to the Attalos museum where relics of the area are on display. After the tour was finished you could stay and continue to look around on your own. Highly recommend. (Tip: make sure you go to the Ancient Agora to meet and not the Roman Agora.

This tour was one of the best we have ever been on, and Kostas, our tour guide, was an important reason why - he was very attenitive to every participant and spoke excellent english. Athens are quite big, so doing a tour with bycicles turned out to be an excellent choice. We did another tour - with a supposedly “premium” company - which we were not nearly as pleased with.

My partner and I loved the tour. 4h is a perfect time to fully understand all the history and the excitement around these places. Amarylis is a great guide. I highly recommend it because you might miss out on a lot.

A great way to get to know Athens on the first day. Dimos was an excellent, super friendly, and knowledgable tour guide. I strongly recommend taking this tour for your first activity in Athens.

Julio was amazing. He had a great energy, answered everyone’s questions and gave insights on where to go and what to see in Athens.

Perfect organised and bikes well maintained. Easy and nice way to have a glimpse of the hot spots.
