A great tour that lasted around four hours. The guide Costas was exceptionally articulate and very knowledgeable about Greek history and mythology, explaining everything as we went. Reaching the top of the Acropolis is quite a climb, but he kept it at a pace everyone could follow.

Mariza was a knowledge, enthusiastic guide. She provided the group with a good overview of the Acropolis, it's significance as well as the key highlights in the Acropolis museum. The tour lasted a little over 4.5 hours.

4 hour tour ended up closer to 5 hours and we’ll worth it. It was a very windy day and a bit hard to hear Mariza outside at the top but she tried her best.

The guide had a deep knowledge about the history of the Akropolis. We enjoyed the tour very much. The name of our guide was Natasha.

Very informative and educational tour. Be prepared to walk and climb. Tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable.
