Athens: Highlights and Acropolis Guided Tour without Tickets
- Small group
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 3.5 hours
Great tour, especially the Acropolis is so much better with a guide in order to understand the context. The 1st part (“Athens Highlights”) took us to the parliament, royal gardens and Temple of Zeus. For the 2nd part (Acropolis) some additional people joined us. At the end of this tour, there was a “3rd part” where they visited the Acropolis museum - this was not included in my ticket but I decided to pay the difference and stay for that too, since I had enjoyed the morning so much! The guide Kimon was so knowledgeable and able to keep everyone interested (there was quite a diverse audience). Bear in mind the actual entrance fee is not included for the temple/Acropolis/museum so you will need to pay the guide the extra amount at the beginning of the tour).
We had the most fantastic tour with Maria Anna. We spent 5 hours with her, going on a walking tour of The magical Acropolis, a city tour in a very comfortable air conditioned coach and then finally a superb tour of The Acropolis Museum. She was so knowledgable, warm and wonderful with children and adults alike. She is part of Chat Tours, who also have exemplary customer service and suggested I upgrade my walking tour to the city tour in the air conditioned coach, and to be collected from my hotel. So considerate. My daughter and I learnt so much and loved being in the small group. I cannot recommend this tour or any others by Chat tours, with Maria Anna highly enough. 10/10.
Kimon was a terrific guide. Passionate about the subject matter and very attentive to the pace of the tour to ensure we covered all of the spots to sight-see in the allotted time. Coupling the museum tour to follow after visiting the Acropolis was great because there was so much context to the museum exhibits and flow after the walking tour. Highly recommend!!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The climb to the Acropolis was challenging but she stopped often enough to ensure that we all made it!
Excellent detail and personal experience. Highly recommend. Effie was a great guide
