Skip the lines and head in faster following your guide as they go through Greek architecture, mythology & history. Explore the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaia, and of course, the Parthenon as part of a detailed tour. Learn from your guide as they talk about the most important myths of ancient Athens, its most significant religious festivals, earliest cults, and how several events in the city’s history are all connected to this sacred precinct called Acropolis. Continue to the Acropolis Museum for the second part of the tour. Explore the stunning glass floors to see the excavations, and follow your guide for another hour to see treasures of the ancient Greek civilization and the museum building itself. See the original pieces from the temples in Acropolis and learn about their historical context from your guide. Hear about the Elgin Marbles in the Parthenon Gallery. Finish your guided tour at The Archaic Gallery with statues predating the Acropolis. After your guided tour, you have the option to stay in the museum to explore further at your own pace and enjoy the view over the city and up to the Acropolis in its famous Museum Cafe.

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!
