One cannot visit Athens and NOT go on a tour of the Acropolis. We had a really fun time exploring, and our guide Alexia was so nice and knowledgeable... we really appreciated her explanations and the things she was pointing out to us, not just on the site but what we could see from the top. She also gave us some recommendations for other things to do in the city, and was interested in learning about us, which was above and beyond what we expected. The museum was really interesting, but the walk up to and around the Acropolis itself is truly amazing. If you only want to do one organized tour in Athens, make it this one.
Great way to spend an afternoon with good weather. The trip to Sounion was recommended to us several times, it's definitely worth it. The bus was small, but we only had a group of 8, which was perfect. Made some interesting stops along the way. The guide was really friendly and knowledgeable, very approachable for questions without being pedantic.
A fabulous trip with an amazing tour guide Bill. We had a surprise trip to an ancient theatre on the way and the sunset at the Temple of Poseidon was magical - full moon as well. Bill had a vast knowledge of myths and legends and of the more modern history of Greece. Definitely worth it - I would go again.
This place is magical. A temple + a sea + a sunset Our guide BIll was VERY helpful. Told us many interesting myth Greek stories and gave us a lot of interesting information of every place in the way. He also stopped the car for us in interesting places in the way with amazing photo spots.
In general it was good. However, as much as I enjoy all the stories and intros to the site, I would also like to have sometime wandering around myself. I guess that's just not the policy of a group tour.
