Good informative tour. Our tour guide assumed we had knowledge of Greek mythology before the tour so you might find yourself lost at moments along the tour. Recommend spending 30-60 mins beforehand to brush up on mythology. 4 hours seemed like enough time, but there is a lot to see at the Acropolis and museum. If you are a history buff, this tour is likely not long enough. If you're just looking for a basic tour and some photos this is great. Our tour guide struggled to get into the Acropolis as he couldn't figure out the ticketing machine and the tickets on his ipad.

Magda was a wonderful guide. She took us up to the Acropolis on the less steep side and always stopped in shade to talk to us. She also took care of us when another guide’s group stood directly in front of us. She is very knowledgeable in Greek mythology & history; & has a great sense of humor!

Our guide Orestis was really great, super nice and easy to understand. It was so easy to find the group and very relaxed trip. The acropolis itself is a bit more strenuous of a walk than I feel like anyone implies. If you struggle to walk up a lot of stairs with very large steps I’d be careful!
