What people are saying about Theatre of Dionysus

I loved this experience. Without a guide, my trip to the acropolis would have felt like an empty tourist attraction. This guide was exceptional. I was continuously impressed by her knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. I also really appreciated being given transmitters for the audio. I was able to hear her without having to stay glued to her side. It was really fantastic. Exactly what I was hoping for and exceeded expectations. My only complaint is that I would have appreciated slightly more detailed directions to the meeting place. It was not obvious where to go after exiting the metro stop, and I ended up waiting at the wrong place for several minutes, as I don’t read Greek and I had no WiFi/network once I was away from my hotel.

The tour is simply amazing and had been more memorable with an able guide like Natasha who is highly knowledgeable and really enjoys the work she does. Our family was highly impressed with her kind nature and passionately responding to every question and almost felt we were been transported to the antiquity.

Best tour we’ve gotten throughout our travels across Europe, tour guide (Joanna) was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, would recommend to anyone with a slight interest in Athens

What I was looking for, the only drawback should be given the option of being able to extend the acropolis ticket to the package of all archaeological sites

Excellent guide sweet and with deep knowledge of Greek history
