A must-experience tour in Athens!

This guide is a must-do if you are going to tour the Acropolis. I had no idea about the history and what I was viewing. Our guide was amazing and helped explain everything in a fun way. I had an 18-year-old with me who hates museums, but she was asking questions and said this was her favorite part of our trip to Athens. Our guide took great photos of our party, and it was a joy to have her around. If I owned a travel company, I would hire her on the spot.

Incredible tour

An absolutely incredible experience. Our tour guide was a true professional. We had skip-the-line access to the Acropolis and Museum, which was great! We were debating whether to book a private acropolis tour or this one, but in the end, this one was the right choice and more fun than private tours. We also visited the Odeon of Herodes Atticus’s ground floor, which was mesmerizing.
