Easy to book and skip the ticket queue. The only downside was the although I had downloaded the audio tour before the visit, the key tours app locked me out so I was unable to use it. Suggest checking this before visiting . It was still a great experience to visit this site

Best to buy tickets in advance so you don't need to queue twice. The entrance area is busy! Easy to get into and well signposted. Audio guide was informative and the while place is amazing! Not easy to get around if you have walking difficulties though as there are a lot of steep steps and rugged terrain. The views are amazing. Totally blown away by the whole experience!!!

Acropolis experience was wonderful, but hugely improved for me by going to the nearby Acropolis Museum first for unlimited background information. If you can't do that, buy the alternative GYG package which includes the phone audio guide. I bought this package (without audio guide) before realising the other one existed, but GYG were unable to add the audio guide or cancel and refund this package, so I didn't have an audio guide. But going to the Museum first gave me all the context I needed. Superb!
