Very professionally done. Guide was excellent. The headphones had some issues, probably need to upgrade that aspect. The line at acropolis was crazy due to Easter weekend. Our guide overcame by flipping our tour to start at museum. It was great, we entered quickly and had so much information prior to entering the actual site. This made for a greater appreciation of the ruins. I thought I had purchased skip the line, Advice from me: pay attention that when your tour shopping that yours provides “skip the line” sure is worth it! Luckily, in spite of my oversight, our guide was able to make our trip happen quickly in spite of long lines. Was well worth the $$ to have an experienced guide for this once in a lifetime experience!!!

Absolutely enjoyed our guided tour with Artemis. She was very knowledgeable and I loved that we toured the Acropolis and then went to the museum where she referred back to items in the museum that we discussed on the tour. Was definitely a longer tour then expected but so worth it and highly recommend! Also few things: this tour does not include tickets for entrance into the museum and Acropolis but you can purchase tickets at 1) the sites (Acropolis and museum) or 2) from the tour company when you arrive (they accept cash only). The museum also requires proof of Covid vaccine with the date of last vaccine and persons name visible and you still have to wear a mask in the museum.

It totally makes sense to visit the Acropolis with a guide. Our guide Aramis was great. She is both professional and friendly. Without her we would miss many interesting and important details. 100% recommended.

Nice trip. The guide was very experienced and told us many stories about Delos. Enjoyed thoroughly.

Bring comfortable shoes for the Acropolis! Be careful on some steps too. A great experience!
