What people are saying about Theatre of Dionysus

Due to the situation, our "small group" consisted only of us (3 people). Our tour guide went to great lengths to tell us very interesting things - the enormous amount of specialist knowledge is remarkable. The 3 hours were very informative and we had fun. Since we were such a small group, we also asked different questions (Athens, Greece and tourism in general) and got a competent and interesting answer to everything. We recommend!

Kimon was an amazing guide! He was flexible, which was perfect because it allowed our group to move at our own pace. He was also funny and very informative. Definitely check out this tour of the Parthenon, acropolis, royal gardens, temple of Zeus, arch of Hadrian, syntagma square and changing of the guard.

Ari was amazing! Went above and beyond, had some fantastic information to share and kept the tour interesting. Highly recommend. Oh, and it helps that's he's an archeologist!!! Great tour.

A guide just for the two of us, very pleasant journey through the city. It helped us then for the visit of the museum and the acropolis.

Our guide was fantastic! She was knowledgeable, personable and customized the tour to our interests. A wonderful experience
