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.

We signed up last minute for this tour - and we are so happy we did. Natasha was our tour guide and she was wonderful. Provided us with great facts, had a great story telling technique, sense of humor, etc. we really appreciated her insights. I’m so glad we did the tour because without it I do not think we could have learned the information on our own especially in the time frame. Highly recommend especially if you were like us and only had a few hours in Athens.

Kimon was our guide. He was very knowledgeable, but more importantly, he made the visit really fun and interactive. He was funny as well. He kept us engaged throughout the whole tour and interacted with everyone in our group. We had 1.5 hours for the tour and we were able to walk around afterwards on our own which was very nice. We would recommend this walking tour and Kimon!

It was a great way to visit this magic place. Our guide gave us a perfect amount of information with funny and interesting stories. Besides that the organization was really good. We arrived 15 minutes earlier in the meeting point and there was a person to inform us about our tour. Sometimes a visit it’s not only about a check in, but to be immersed. The tour allows a great experience.
