Enjoyable but pricey, could be improved.

We had fun, but we’re a little underwhelmed for the high cost. Our guide was lovely, and a lot is out of their control - the Acropolis is so busy and tour members can be tardy, which probably impacted how much time they had to speak. We enjoyed the Mythology, and it sets the tour apart from all the historical information you can get at the Acropolis museum. However, we really would have liked the myths to be supplemented with a bit more history (ie: the temple/sanctuary was built this date following this event, by this ruler, before or after this other monument. The reason it was put here: here’s the myth). We wouldn’t be as fussy and would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t so pricey. But still very enjoyable and a great supplement to the pure historical/archeological information at the Museum.

Mostly good, but hard to keep track of where everything is

The information was good but it needed more pictures of what we should be seeing. They had multiple entries where they were talking about a specific spot or statue and I could not find it for the life of me , and I know most of them aren't there anymore but I couldn't find where it should be . Also all of the information was from the construction and building and nothing after so we didn't even tell us why there was no roof . Still, the information was interesting and I did enjoy it 4 out of 5

Fantastic tour, extremely well organized, excellent guide

We did this tour sept 7th 2019. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable (Fotini) and professional. It’s organized in a way to optimize your time to see the key highlights of the acropolis and surrounding without waisting lineups and avoiding crowds. Transportation extremely comfortable. We were a group of 4 (two adults and two children), perfect for family. Highly recommend it.

Excellent guide. Great information and pacing.

Kimon, our guide, took us from top to bottom on a hot and windy day. He kept all the information flowing, answered any questions and the group moving at a good pace in the heat whilst still ensuring everyone was in shade where possible. One of the best walking tours we have done..

Helpful, depends on the time of the year

We went in September and I’m sure if we had gone first thing in the morning it would have been well worth it. We went around 9:30 and there was only a line of 40 or so. Although it was probably worth it to skip the line. The acropolis was insanely crowded, but still enjoyable.
