The tour was well timed, convenient and informative. The Acropolis gets very busy by mid day and our tour started bright and early at 8:45. actually earlier than planned as everyone has arrived. The tour office meeting location is two blocks from Acropolis entrance. The tour guide Artemis was informative, so enthusiastic. She did not rush us but also kept a steady pace to make sure we finished the tour before the top of Acropolis got too crowded.

The guided tour was brilliant, the guide great, lots of explanations which greatly interested our 12 year old son. We made the visit at the end of the day to be less hot (end of August). We recommend visiting the Acropolis Museum with a guide in French before visiting the Acropolis.

The tour was great and is highly recommended! We booked the tour at 5.30pm - this is an advantage on the one hand because of the high temperature and on the other hand because of the large number of people. Our tour guide was very nice and friendly and was able to inspire us with the history of the Acropolis. Without a tour, you probably wouldn't know what there is to admire around the Acropolis.
