Angela was great! Very engaging, good storytelling, she was super attentive to all the group. We didn’t see the time pass even with the hot time. Worth every penny. the space is big so a guide help to organize the visit and know the history behind what you see.

Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable! The walk was well paced and the sound system was excellent. I would not see the Acropolis without a guided tour!!!

The tour was fantastic. Kostas was extendly friendly, knowledgeable and open to all questions etc. He made our tour trip all the better!!!

We highly recommend doing it as early in the day as possible due to heat. There are bathrooms and freshwater at the top of the acropolis.

Mornings are the best time to go - cooler temps and less crowded! Wonderful guide!
