  • "The paths were quite slippery in some areas, so it was a challenge to get to the top." See review
  • "Beware as there is a good amount of walking to do but that’s the case with the ruins in general, not just This tour." See review

Artemis was our tour guide, she was very professional and knowledgeable. She kept me engaged in the tour which is good cause I would hate a boring tour. The history stories and her personality was great for a tour guide. I would definitely recommend them and hopefully you would get Artemis

My family and I had an amazing tour of the Acropolis guided by Coco! He was extremely knowledgeable about Athens culture - present and ancient. We made several stops on our way up to the Acropolis so he could tell us what it was like in ancient times and share fun stories at each stop. He was very lively and engaging, and he exuded passion for history. At the Acropolis he told us all about the architecture and stories behind the construction and reconstructions, along with some relevant Greek myths. He even showed us the best spot to take a picture of the Acropolis. Would definitely recommend!!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this tour and our guide Anne! Not only was she very knowledgeable, but made every part of the tour interesting. She also had answers to everything the group asked! It was a nice time of the day to go as there was some shade and she made sure to take an ample amount of stops in them along the way! Would recommended to anyone.
