Full description

Join a small group at the Acropolis metro station for a more interactive and personal experience. Get to know your local guide who has a professional license as she goes over the day's itinerary. Start your walk right away to discover Acropolis which the most popular monument in Athens. 

The Acropolis is next to the Plaka neighborhood which is just south of the Agora.  The Acropolis is easily the most popular monument in Athens so you get a very detailed tour including the Erechtheion, the temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaia and of course the Parthenon. Look at how the rock of the Acropolis itself serves as a reference point for the modern development of Athens. Enjoy the Acropolis and its complementary sites over wonderful views over Athens. See the Acropolis Museum to complement the tour.

Your guide organizes the timing of the museum either before or after the Acropolis proper considering the season and the crowds.  Acropolis Museum is stunning, to say the least. Our small group tour in Athens includes the treasures of the ancient Greek civilization and the museum building itself is worth discovering. Its unique design has incorporated the excavations which are visible under stunning glass floors.

The Acropolis Museum houses original pieces from the temples in Acropolis, protecting them from deterioration while also giving their historical context. Learn about the Elgin Marbles in the Parthenon Gallery; the famous marble frieze recreated with both original marble and casts of those pieces.

The Archaic Gallery has statues which pre-date the Acropolis itself. After around three hours, your tour concludes back at the original start point.

Tour was exactly as described, there were 4 of us, all over in our 70’s & 80’s and the guide stopped to let us old folks keep up. She did an excellent job. Information provided gave us a better insight into the history of the Acropolis and recommend the use of a guide if you don’t want to miss anything The Acropolis Museum is a must after visiting the Acropolis. Again our guide made what we saw come to life and gave us a better understanding of what we were observing Highly recommended

A great way to see the Acropolis and the museum! There's not a lot of information up there so having a tour guide is a great to understand a lot of the history, plus the guide probably adds a lot more information. Even more handy when we were at the museum.

This is a must do in Athens. It was very hot and our guide did her best to keep us in the shade. Do to the weather the tour was a bit compressed. It was at times hard to hear her but her info was very interesting and on point
