Een echte aanrader!!! Wij waren onder de indruk van de tempel met zijn hoge zuilen, de grootsheid van het geheel. De gids was fantastisch! Ze sprak duidelijk Nederlands en vertelde allerhande leuke anekdotes. Zelfs de kleinste kinderen (ca. 8 jaar) in onze groep vonden het leuk. De gids hield rekening met het comfort van iedereen (zon/schaduw). Ze betrok iedereen in haar verhaal en had een iPad bij zich om bepaalde zaken te verduidelijken met beeldmateriaal. Op die manier kon je ook zien hoe het vroeger was en niet enkel raden. Op geen enkel moment heb ik iemand horen zuchten, op geen enkel moment stelde ik mij de vraag 'duurt dit hier nog lang'. Het was ook leuk om de file aan de kassa zomaar voorbij te kunnen wandelen bij het betreden de Acropolis.
