Great way to see the sites and learn about Greek history. There is a lot of walking and it was hot, but the guide did a great job keeping us engaged.

If you're a mythological fan this tour is for you, it was fantastic! Easy pace, loved the head sets -- which allowed social distancing. Very interesting to hear the actual history and mythology behind locations. The tour guide was fantastic! Very personable and entertaining.

Excellent tour of Acropolis and Agora!

We had an excellent tour of the Acropolis and Agora! We met right on time and the location was easy to find. The ear-pieces worked great for listening to the guide, especially in crowded areas. Our guide was wonderful. She was an archaeologist, extremely knowledgeable with a clear passion for the material, and had a great sense of humor. She led us on an excellent tour, full of information, and kept us in the shade as much as possible. There was plenty of time for photos along the way. And the group was kept to a small size, probably around 10 people. Highly recommend!

If you love mythology and history, I highly recommend this tour. Everything was paced nicely so it didn’t feel too overwhelming. Wear good shoes and enjoy the sites looking through the lens of ancient Greeks.

our guide Marika was great. Fun information about the myths. You do have to pay 30euro per person for entrance fees (not included in your coat) so just keep that in mind for your budget.
