What people are saying about Odeon of Herodes Atticus

I tend to be on the fence about booking excursions in advance & am always scouring the reviews hoping I'm making the right decision. THIS is the right decision! Our guide, Dorina, was thorough & very knowledgable which made our visit to the Acropolis all that much more worth while. She walked us in through a less crowded entrance & past some ruins we would have missed had we gone through the main entrance. The history she provided us & cultural references to what we were viewing were invaluable. If you're like me & you're on the fence, just do this, you won't regret it. Finally, I had personally never seen this before, we were each given an individual headset so that no matter that it was raining or Dorina walked in front of us we were still able to hear what she was saying. Brilliant.

Our tour guide was Marina. She was fantastic. I would request her again the future. The tour was about two hours. It was easy to keep up with her and navigate the city. Definitely would recommend.

Katarina was our guide and she was impeccable. Both in English and her knowledge about the subject. Acropolis is magical and amazing to see it after all this years! Thank you!
