Full description
Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the tree-lined streets to the foothills of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Acropolis of Athens, an ancient citadel and one of the world’s most revealing archaeological sites. Head for the south slope of the Acropolis to avoid the main crowds. Then stop at the ticket office to collect your tickets and make your way inside to see the bounty of ancient treasures that await. Along the way, visit the Theatre of Dionysus, a 5th-century amphitheater that is often cited as the birthplace of the performing arts. Hear about its history and imagine it filled with the theatergoers of Ancient Greece. Stop at the Dionysus Sanctuary, dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility. Once inside the Acropolis, get up-close to important sights, such as the Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike, and Parthenon. Pause to take photos of these fascinating ruins, and learn their history from your guide. Once at the summit of the sacred hill, take in the sweeping panoramas of Athens. Learn about the excavations, and get an insight into the citadel’s ruins. Hear about surrounding monuments, such as Mars Hill and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.  Your tour concludes at the summit of the Acropolis, leaving you free to continue exploring the site on your own. You can choose between an early morning, morning or afternoon guided tour.

    This was a great tour! Our guide, Artemis, lead us into and through the Acropolis. She provided the perfect amount of information and historical context so we could truly appreciate everything we saw along the way. She was knowledgeable and friendly and I loved the personalized attention we got in our small group.

    A taxi driver easily found the location to meet our guide. We then walked to the Acropolis entrance... you may need your passport so bring it along. It was myself and my two children (ages 8 years and 11 years). We were very lucky that the acropolis had very few visitors and we were truly spoilt by our amazing guide who by luck we had to ourselves. We learnt all about the Greek myths and the history of the acropolis and surrounding area. My son’s endless questions were answered with enthusiasm. It was an amazing tour and far exceeded our expectations. After our tour we decided to visit the museum.... I’m glad we did it that way round because we could then see all the artifacts that were mentioned during our tour,

    My family and I had a great experience with the Acropolis Guided Walking Tour. Kimon, our guide was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, thorough in the subject matter and welcoming with questions. He provided an excellent tour and I would highly recommend "Get Your Guide" for this tour. If you are fortunate to have Kimon as your tour guide, you will be very happy.
