An acropolis private tour costs around €60, but keep in mind that this price does not include entrance fees which you’ll have to buy on the spot before your tour starts. So in total, a private tour experience of the acropolis will cost you around €85.

Great time on this Private Acropolis Tour!

Katerina is an energetic and knowledgeable guide. We learned so much that we wouldn't have been able to get if we had done the tour on our own. The Acropolis wowed us, and having Katerina explain everything enhanced our experience. Our tour through the museum made sense because of Katerina's logical sequence of historical events. We also appreciated her cheeky sense of humor. If you only do one tour in Athens, make it this one.


Great experience

This was a truly great experience! We had a fantastic guide who showed us around the Acropolis and Museum, he also told us some tips for visiting Athens. Highlights of the tour were the Temple of Poseidon and the Temple of Nike for me. I highly recommend this private tour!
