Excellent tour of the Acropolis! Our guide was kind, engaging, approachable, and super knowledgeable about the history of the Acropolis and greek mythology. It was great to go on an evening tour, when the temperature was cooler and it was less crowded. Without the guide, we would have had no clue how to navigate the various temples and monuments!

Stelios was a good tour guide for the history and archeological facts about the acropolis and the Parthenon . He made it interesting inspite of the soaring heat… we recommend this tour not only for the info but the peace of mind of not falling in line for the entrance tickets

This was a great tour of the Acropolis. Anna,our guide, was lovely and very knowledgeable. She kept our 11 year old and ourselves engaged throughout and gave us a context for better understanding and enjoying our visit to the Acropolis museum the following day. The length of the tour was just right at two hours and we were glad to have chosen the evening tour as it cooled down dramatically over the course of the evening and it was lovely up at the Parthenon for our free time at 7.30. Couldn’t have been better.
