Our guide has an immense amount of knowledge of all the different areas of the Acropolis and was able to answer any historical question. Bring water and sturdy shoes. Our tour was 3 hours which was as long as needed (maybe a touch long for younger children) but very much worth the price. Highly recommend this tour

We had a wonderful time, visiting Acropolis and the Museum. Vicky our guide was very knowledgeable, telling us all about the Acropolis history. She took her time in explaining us everyhting, answering our questions and also give us some tips, of things to do while in Athens. We sure recommend this tour!

Thenia was absolutely amazing! She met us at our meeting point at the base of the Acropolis and from that moment on she was pack full of history and mythological stories! We leisurely walked along the path in front of the Acropolis and up to the top where she gave us all sorts of info. The way they're restoring the parthenon is very interesting! After working our way through the Acropolis, we walked down to the Archeological Museum where she gave us the quick overalls before leaving us to mosey around! She was only supposed to be with us between 0930-1230 but she didn't leave us until 1430! She was truly wonderful.
