Great tour of the acropolis. Loved learning about the history and getting to know our guide. She realized we did not have any water and was kind enough to get us some from a vending machine. I’m very glad we booked a tour because it added a lot to our experience. Highly recommend!

Our guide was so nice and informative. We enjoyed seeing images of what certain sights had looked like, and seeing the city from up above. Our guide was also informative about Greek history and all the best spots to visit in Athens. I would highly recommend this tour for a quick afternoon experience in the city.

The tour was absolutely worthwhile. To receive a genuine experience of the Acropolis, you need the help of a tour guide to tell you in insider stories - the drama, the tragedies, the hidden messages…oh my! Alice was an absolute treasure that made you feel warm and welcome to the city of Athens. She was very witty and had a favor with Zeus, making sure it didn’t rain that day.
