Full description
Step into ancient Greece on this in-depth walking tour of historical central Athens, including the Acropolis World Heritage Site and other key monuments such as Hadrian's Arch, the Temple of Zeus, and the Parthenon. After meeting your guide in the hotel lobby, you will begin by visiting the Greek House of Parliament and the Monument of the Unknown Soldier to watch the changing of the guards. Your tour continues on to the beautiful National Gardens, passing by the Anglican church of St. Paul and on to the beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall, in front of which tower the surviving columns of the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch. Heading to the famous Plaka district, you will see the portrait of Melina Merkouri before moving on to the beautiful Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian walkway. From here, you will begin the mythical climb to the Acropolis, enjoying the spectacular views of the city below.

We did the tour with Mrs Nelly, a very nice girl, very nice and attentive. He made an effort to speak to us in Spanish even though the tour was in English. The tour lasted 3 hours and we were very comfortable and it lasted longer. He explained everything to us very well and taught us many things about the Greek culture and answered all our questions. We recommend it 100%. Excellent professional.

Some places were close that day. A bit hard to believe a tour company was not aware of that. My guide and her trainee were nice. But the guide's English was hard to understand. But she did try to share as much as possible and I appreciated that. I was not very much into Athens after having spent a little time in Santorini. So the tour itself was not that interesting to me.
