Full description

Join your small group to enjoy skip-the-line access to the famous Acropolis. Enjoy a more personalized and interactive experience led by an expert local guide. Begin exploring the Acropolis immediately avoiding the long queues. Journey through history with your local guide, from the ancient Hellenistic and Roman periods, through the Byzantine and Ottoman era into the modern-day.

Learn about the most celebrated myths of ancient Athens, its most significant religious festivals, earliest cults, and how several specific events in the city’s history are all connected to this sacred precinct. Enjoy stunning views over Athens from a commanding point of this ancient citadel and see how the city has developed over nearly 3,000 years. Visit the most important buildings visible on the Acropolis today: the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Choose to stay on the hill to explore further at your own pace, or let your guide show you a different route towards the south exit that will present you with views of the Altar of Asclepius and the Theater of Dionysus.

I was sent a link to book and that was flawless. Our group met at location given and our tour left on time with a very knowledgeable guide. The pace was great and the information was very interesting throughout the experience. Athens and surrounding area are wonderful and the Acropolis tour was like the icing on the Athenian cake……..go for it!!

Our guide was exceptional! A wonderful storyteller and historian, Frosso (sorry, that spelling probably isn't correct), made the distant past feel relevant and integrated. As a teacher, I recognized her facility with sharing complex ideas in small chunks, reiterating ideas in multiple ways so they stuck, and inviting us into the conversation. Thanks to her and our wonderful group mates, a very hot morning on the Acropolis was awe-inspiring, humorous, and almost transcendant!

Great experience from start to end. Eland met us at the meeting point at the pre arranged time with a name sign so was easy to identify. She was very knowledgeable and made our 9 yr old girl feel very special. She took the time to get to know us and made sure we were always comfortable and getting us in the shade when she could.
