The tour was absolutely worthwhile. To receive a genuine experience of the Acropolis, you need the help of a tour guide to tell you in insider stories - the drama, the tragedies, the hidden messages…oh my! Alice was an absolute treasure that made you feel warm and welcome to the city of Athens. She was very witty and had a favor with Zeus, making sure it didn’t rain that day.

Our guide Eva Pavlou was a fantastic guide as part of this tour. I told her that I had a big interest in theatre, so she customized the tour to focus more on our areas of interest (since the Acropolis is so large). She also was fantastic at making sure we had great pictures to document our tour and visit. She knew all the best places for us to stand for the best shots and was happy to take the pics of my husband and me. We learned a great deal from Eva!

We joined a tour of the acropolis with our three children (ages 10 - 13) as we thought we would get more out of it - and that was definitely true. Our guide gave us a really clear and comprehensive explanation of the history of Athens and the building of the acropolis complex which the children really enjoyed and which helped us make sense of what we saw during our Athens trip.
