Best way to explore Acropolis

We decided to join the guided tour of the Acropolis, which was a good decision. We wanted to learn more about the Acropolis rather than just see it, and our guide exceeded our expectations! He was also funny and made the whole experience entertaining. I love Greek history, so I enjoyed every moment of this tour. We climbed up to the Parthenon - what a wonderful view from there! All in all, we had a great time exploring the Acropolis!

Worth time & money!

We booked the Acropolis Museum tour which included skip-the-line access. Our guide was great, the tour pace was relaxed and we enjoyed all the sightseeing in Athens. The visit to the museum was unique, but for me, the best part was walking around and experiencing the Acropolis. We are happy to recommend this tour!

Monica

Great Athens Tour & good value

Our mythology tour of Athens was a great experience. Our guide was Athy, and she told us everything we wanted to hear about ancient Greek legends and myths. It was so interesting. We visited many temples and ancient theaters, and we heard many details and stories about Acropolis that you can't find in tourist books. We booked online, so we didn't have to worry about anything beforehand. It was definitely worth it.
