Very informative tour with drive-by of many interesting landmarks and historical buildings. You need to grab a window seat on the bus to have an opportunity to get a decent photo. Tour does stop at the historic Olympic stadium and you will also have the opportunity to walk up the hill to the Acropolis. Expect a lot of people to be there. Wear good walking shoes (not sandals), a hat and brink a bottle of water.

Overall it’s a nice 4/5, there were explanations on each building on the Acropolis site, the downside is the guide’s voice was not really loud although she tried to scream for everybody to hear, but the noise of other people’s around was just too loud. Other than that, we got down basically at the panathenaic stadium & Acropolis site, the rest was just explanations from inside the bus.

They picked us up at 8:15 a.m. They had asked us to be at 7:30. In the same way there was no more inconvenience. The walk includes acropolis, where one gets off and starts to go up to visit the parthenon. You see each part with a good explanation in your language. Then by bus you make the typical stops with their respective explanation, in that section you only get off at the stadium. The other is seen from the bus. Finally the tour ends and you are left at the entrance of the Plaka neighborhood, in front of the Olympic Zeus. You have two options: either you stay on the bus until the others finish their tour of the museum, or you walk back. Actually, we went as a family and the walk was already a theme for the child. So we walked back. Suggestions: whoever goes to the museum gets off and those of us who want to go back to the hotel take us while the others are in the museum. Mainly for when you go with children. The rest very well and good predisposition always from Maria.
