Explore the history of Athens on a walking tour with a private guide. Start at the city's most monumental site, the iconic Acropolis. Admire the astonishing collection of sculptures that describe more than 2,500 years of history, from the glorious first theater of humanity at the Theatre of Dionysus, to the healing Temple of Asclepius, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

Katerina is an energetic and knowledgeable guide. We learned so much that we wouldn't have been able to get if we had done the tour on our own. The Acropolis wowed us and having Katerina explain everything enhanced our experience. Our tour through the museum made sense because of Katerina's logical sequence of historic events. We also appreciated her cheeky sense of humor. If you only do one tour in Athens, make it this one.

Such a delight

Our tour guide, Rosa, was phenomenal! I was on crutches, so she had to adjust our tour a bit to accommodate my limitations, and she secured a wheel chair for me so I didn't have to walk. She took us through the museum and explained the history and legend in incredible detail. She was engaging and a joy. Rosa even had bottles of water for us when we met up - bonus. I would highly recommend Rosa if you are interested in learning the history from a local. She is a delight! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her.

Our guide, Maria, was very pleasant and nice to hang out with for the four hour tour. She was very knowledgeable and informative and answered all our questions. So glad we booked a private tour guide so we could get narratives not on the placards, the stories behind the story.
