Full description

Choose from either a small-group or private guided experience. Meet your dedicated guide at a hot spot for traditional Greek delicacies, where there are restroom facilities and you can purchase water or snacks.

Let your guide take you onto Pnyx Hill, which is the actual birthplace of democracy. Continue to immerse yourself in Ancient Greek history on a 50-minute tour of the world-famous Acropolis in Athens.

Skip the ticket line and discover the cradle of the Western civilization on a guided visit in a small group. Admire the stunning architecture of the Parthenon Temple and learn the importance of the Erechtheion Temple.

Hear myths and stories about ancient Athens from your guide. After your guided tour, you have the option to stay on the hill to explore further at your own pace and enjoy the view over the city and up to the Aegean Sea.

Your guide will show you a different route towards the south exit so that you also see the Altar of Asclepius and the Theater of Dionysus, the birthplace of theater drama.

Upgrade your tour by adding a Greek dining experience. After your Acropolis tour, a local food expert will pick you up from the Acropolis exit and escort you through the beautiful pedestrian pathway of Apostolou Pavlou to the Hill Athens Restaurant.

Enjoy a 4-course meal designed by a top chef, while your food expert will introduce you to the secrets of Greek cuisine. Tuck into a Choriatiki salad, a pie for starter, slow-cooked lamb for main, and Greek 'spoon sweets' with yogurt for dessert.

So happy we elected to take a guided tour! Our guide was superb! Provided so much background and color commentary along with historical facts. She really came across as though she enjoyed her job. Timing was perfect as there was a long line to get in just as we were leaving. She even offered to take our pictures at various points.

Great tour - guide was fantastic. We learned so much and have now a greater appreciation for the history of Greece as well as the significance of all that we saw at the Acropolis. We highly recommend taking the 8:30 tour when it is as hot as it is - imagine the afternoon would have been not near as comfortable.

An excellent guided tour. Included the sites of the Acropolis, but also other nearby sites that were quiet and not crowded. Wouldn't have wanted to visit the archeological sites any other way - having a guided tour was much more fun and informational than trying to do it ourselves! Kimon, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and a pleasure to be around. Great experience all around.
