For us this was an interesting introductory tour to Athens. The guide was very knowledgable but inevitable there were time pressures especially in the Acropolis Museum. We were able to stay on at the Museum after the tour ended and explore it more thoroughly. One niggle was that as we didn’t have individual tickets, we had to ‘persuade’ the security man at the lower level excavations, which are very interesting, to let us enter to look around. This should not have been necessary and GYG must arrange for their clients to have full individual tickets/passes for the Museum and Excavations just as we had at the Acropolis. The Acropolis Restaurant is excellent and an ideal place to have a quick lunch after the tour. Though we enjoyed it, in our view the tour is on the expensive side for a half day tour with a relatively large group.
We really were able to get so much more out of the experience of visiting the Acropolis and Museum with a guide than we would have been able to on our own. As it turned out, my husband and I were the only participants on that particular tour, and our guide was an absolute fountain of knowledge. She truly made our time there very informative and enjoyable!
Dorina Katsadoraki was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable, positive, inclusive and answered all our questions well. The pace of the tour was nice. I would recommend doing the early morning one because towards the end it gets quite hot.
The guide, Kimon, was very knowledgeable about history, myth, and archeology. It greatly enriched the experience of visiting the Acropolis.
Our guide (Cici)was very knowledgeable. On a hot day she found all the shady spots. Just amazing.
