We spent the first hour changing vehicles, then everybody was advice after the tour that we will not be dropped off at our hotels because there will be a strike I’m downtown and even though that was included in their price no other options for transportation was offered, they refused to pay taxi fees. They should have cancel the tour as soon as they learned about the strike not leave everybody stranded and figuring out on their own how to get back to the hotel.

Athens Full Day Tour with Lunch - Not recommended
StellaP1056
, Oct 2019
This tour was very overpriced, so I would not recommend it. I would suggest that you visit the acropolis and acropolis museum on your own and then book only a half day tour for the afternoon part of this tour, which is available. We did not get very much comments/history from the tour guide throughout the day and I was asked to pay EUR 38 in the morning before the tour starts, so you are basically paying for the lunch and the travel with the tour bus this tour. Also, in the evening, we were not dropped off where we got picked up in the morning. We were dropped off where is the office of this local tour company and people had to find their own way back to their hotel. Not recommended!

The Viator Full Day Tour of Athens was very good. We had a very short time in Athens so wanted to see all the highlights in one day. We were picked up at our hotel as prearranged.The morning tour around Athens and the Acropolis were very informative. The restaurant they took us to for lunch had good authentic Greek food. The afternoon tour down the coast gave us a chance to see more or the mainland before we headed to the islands. Our only warning is that it is a very long day. We were picked up at 8:30am and didn't get back to the hotel until 7:30pm. However, I would still recommend it if you are short of time in Athens.

Athens Full Day Tour

My friend and I went on the full day tour to Athens. The tour began with about thirty people. After driving around the center of town, we went to the Acropolis, it was very crowded and there was no way one guide could keep that many people together. We were to meet after some free time and we couldn't find part of the group. Next we walk to the Acropolis Museum, part of the group left after that, the guide left those who had booked lunch at a restaurant, and we were told to meet another guide after lunch four block away, and there wasn't any specific directions how to get there. We didn't realize in the afternoon, we were driving to Zeus's temple an hour out of town. It was after seven before we were dropped off in heavy traffic two blocks from our hotel. One elderly man missed his stop and had to find a taxi to get back. We were very disappointed in the tour.

Full day tour of Athens including lunch
rrjtrobinson

Started out pretty good, they sent a driver to pick us up at our hotel and he was on time. He took us to the company's office where things started to go down hill. Our group of three was charged an extra $38 each for admission to three places. Don't remember that extra charge in the description of the tour. They should add the admissions cost up front so we wouldn't have felt duped. Then we sat there for an hour, ugh! We boarded a nice, clean bus and were introduced to the driver and our English speaking guide. I'm sure she had great things to say, however she spoke softly and had a strong non English accent, so much so that our small group could not understand her. We saw so many landmarks and buildings on the way to the Acropolis, which she commented on, but were not able to stop and take pictures. Finally made it to the Acropolis where it was so crowded that two of us lost the group. She was not carrying a flag, so we couldn't see her. Which was kind of okay because we couldn't hear her anyway. Many other groups had ear buds to listen to their guide, we did not. The sights at the Acropolis were amazing and the museum afterwards was very interesting and informative. Again we couldn't hear our guide, so we wondered about to see and read on our own. After that we went to lunch at a nice restaurant, the food and wine were great! We were told to find our way back to the travel company to get on a bus to go the our last site, after we finished lunch we were given directions by the waiter for the walk to the meeting place. So our small group set off only to find out that we couldn't locate the bus. We felt stranded! Fortunately someone in our group was able use his GPS and we located the bus. Last place we went to was the Temple of Poseidon. Again a beautiful and interesting site. We did have a different guide who spoke louder, and she was very interesting and knowledgeable. To summarize, the sites we saw were worth the money, just wish the first guide spoke louder, and carried a tall flag.

Athens day tour

Our guide Vasiliki was enthusiastic and accommodating, and shared a lot of information. However, although she spoke English, her English was accented and difficult to understand, and overall volume was soft. We also had a group of Spanish-speaking tourists so our guide needed to speak with the English group first, then the Spanish group. The sights and ruins were great but we would have preferred more time for narration.

This tour started with City tour by circling Syntagma square 3 times before heading to the Acropolis. Could skip the City tour or limit Syntagma square only once. Could get ticket earlier to get to Acropolis to avoid the crowds. Could also spend more time at the Acropolis museum instead of circling Syntagma square 3x. Would've liked to spend time looking at the archeological site.

Amazing Cultural Experience
calamityjane252016

We thought this tour was extremely enlightening and included so much important history, but we were not happy with the organization of the tour. There was too much confusion in organizing the various buses that had picked up people going to numerous tours and it took almost 30 minutes to get everybody to the correct bus and on our way. It would have been much smarter to just ask people to raise hands going on one tour and direct them to their bus or just have people meet at appropriate place. We ended have a much later day because of the mass confusion
