What people are saying about Ancient Agora of Athens

My wife and I participated in the tour on our honeymoon last week and found that it was a fantastic way to explore Athens! We had already walked around the city a little bit, but read ahead of time where the tour would take us and made sure to save those spots for later. Our guide was fantastic, super kind and funny. We loved the route we went on; it wasn't too challenging, we loved all the sites we rode by, and it was well-paced. Our longest stop was to witness the changing of the guard, well worth it! I do recommend this being the first thing you do when you reach Athens, just because we had already been down some of the streets and had visited the Cathedral beforehand. However, even with the small repetition, we absolutely loved this tour, and it didn't take away from our enjoyment. If you're not a fan of biking through cities and weaving through crowds, I don't fully recommend this. However, we only had to weave through people once or twice and it wasn't bad at all.

Highly recommend. This was an excellent tour to kick off our time in Athens. Really well presented and thoughtful, our guide (unfortunately I did not make note of his name) gave us a great history lesson on the Acropolis and the surrounding areas in excellent English. He is an interesting storyteller and is very knowledgeable, taking us through the many centuries of this amazing site in an engaging way. This tour starts early but is totally worth it, it gets very very crowded towards midday and the sun is very punishing if you are going in the summer or in September, like we did. Don’t forget to check out the Acropolis Museum where many of the original artifacts from the site are preserved. Wear sturdy shoes and sunscreen and bring water when visiting during hot months, the heat is real and there is no way to buy water at the site.

Super tour, great idea to start early given the heat and the crowds later in the day. Our guide Angela was super knowledgeable and passed on the information in such a way it kept us interested and engaged the whole time. No chance we would have been able to read all the information ourselves, hard to even get near some of it with the number of people around. In my view having a guide is the way to go to make the most of a visit to a site such as this, and Angela was excellent.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Gave the group time for rests and was interactive with everyone. Nice to get the history behind the Acropolis.

Our tour guide, Christina, was very knowledgeable and amazing! We loved every aspect of it. We covered everything as was outlined in the booking guide.
