Excellent purchase, with a single ticket I had the opportunity to visit not only the Acropolis, but also numerous sites and museums. Simply download the Smartvisit app to have all the necessary tickets available. Only advice: book the acropolis and archaeological sites 48 hours before the visit. As for the Panatinaico stadium, it is the museum of illusions, simply go to the cash desk and change the ticket by simply showing the ticket on the app

Our tour guide was very informational and very polite. He waited very patiently when our group was exploring the monuments. The tour was very personal and the car had lots of room since it was just our group of three and our guide, which I enjoyed.

Our guide Nikko was the best! He planned the day to include all the places and activities we had requested. He was very knowledgable, as well as being very helpful and friendly. We were very very pleased with our day. Thank you !!

The truth is that it was phenomenal for the 3 full days we were in the city. Not all of them are there but if you want to see the main ones and well, it is perfect.
