Full description
Explore the most famous symbol of Athens like you’ve never imagined. The best of the Acropolis will be waiting for you on this 100% private walking tour with your own professional guide. Kick-off your tour at one of the most famous meeting points in Athens: Monastiraki Square. Located right in the heart of the city center, you’ll find a unique blend of styles, eras and cultures. Lively and always dynamic, all it takes is a 360 degree turn to see the history of Athens surrounding you. Admire ancient landmarks, like the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Roman Agora, Ancient Agora, the Evzones and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. 

Stroll towards the archaeological site of Hadrian's Library, once an impressive construction of extraordinary richness. Walk towards the Gate of Athena and admire the Roman Agora where you can see the use of the ruins through the ages. Reconstruct the past in the present, as you discover how thousands of years of history and different civilizations formed life in Athens. Head to the most famous building in the Roman Agora: an eight-sided marble tower that is a combined water clock, sundial and a weather vane. Continue wandering down hidden alleyways and discover Athens from an insider’s perspective. You will gain an understanding of daily life in the city, where past and present still mingle. 

Make your way towards Plaka, the most ancient part of the city. Check out some of the oldest taverns of Athens that have been meeting points for over two decades. Get ready to enter the tiny village of Anafiotika, a tranquil oasis isolated from Plaka’s buzz. Enjoy the cluster of small houses built on the slopes of the Acropolis. It's like being on a Greek Island. Let your private guide show you iconic monuments that hold an even more impressive story. Stroll by one of the most picturesque Greek Orthodox churches of Athens, and you’ll understand why this is a local favorite for weddings, baptisms or relaxing walks. Arrive at your final stop and enter the incredible Acropolis through the less touristy southern slope. What’s even better is that there’s no need to wait in line. Your private guide has already purchased your tickets in advance. Just pay your host directly.

V characteristic, informative and unusual

We enjoyed much the tour but it is yet v expensive and i thought it is written in inclusions entrance fees, yet our guide, who was v friendly and informative, insisted that entrance fees to Acropolis was not included and we had to pay extra for entrance fees so overall the tour is really over priced for only two hours
