Full description

Enjoy a guided tour of the Acropolis and the Museum to travel back in time to ancient Athens. Avoid the long line with skip-the-line tickets and spend more time learning about this ancient site.

Uncover Greek history and mythology with a guide at sites, like the Parthenon and the Dionysus Theater, where famous ancient dramas and tragedies were first performed. Visit the Temple of Athena and see the most important buildings on the Acropolis.

Head to the Acropolis Museum for the second part of the tour. Admire the view of the city and Acropolis at the Museum Cafe. Discover the glass floors over the excavations and find treasures of ancient Greece with your guide over the next hour.

See original pieces from the Acropolis temples and learn about their historical significance, including the renowned Elgin Marbles. Visit The Archaic Gallery to see statues predating the Acropolis. Then, stay as long as you want in the museum.

One of the best tour ever. Enough time to see everything and ro take excellent photos, not to long to be bored. Our guide, Frosso, was more than excellent. Good english, very interesting explanation, it seems to have a lot of experience. Even the Acropole and the musseum were at the best. We strongly recommend.

Our host was very knowledgeable and had great stories to tell. The ear pieces make it easy to hear her even when you step away from the group- the pacing was my only complaint- spent too long in stoping places and then sped through the actual monument/no real time to ask questions. The museum part could be done on your own.

Our guide was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about Athens History and Greek mythology so much that it was easy for her to take us back in time. We experienced what it must have been like for the ancient Greeks and stood in awe of the majestic ruins with a better understanding of how it all came to be, and how those treasures were almost lost forever. Highly recommended!
