The information was interesting and relevant. The narrator was easy to understand. My husband and I shared an earpiece so we were at the same speed and place listening to it. Also, it was cheaper to purchase the audio tour and tickets than it was to purchase only the tickets at the ticket window. We're not sure why that was?

Trip that takes a day. The tour included the imlil waterfalls, the journey to reach the valley and the village was very suggestive, after the excursion a meal on a splendid terrace under the sun with breathtaking views. Lunch consisted of excellent rice, tagine and fresh fruit. After that we got back on the road to reach the tour with the dromedary, very nice. Staff punctual, organized, very kind. A special dedication to brahim for helping us with our baby and having a wonderful day. Lahcen effective and very kind, he too managed everything in the best possible way, thank you very much. A great day. Gorgeous staff! See you soon!

I was able to visit the long-awaited Acropolis, and I really enjoyed it. As we enter the Acropolis, we would like to make an important note to prevent further casualties. I hope that as many people as possible will read the following. There is a small shop selling drinks and snacks directly opposite the ticket office at the southwest entrance gate of the Acropolis, but please do not buy anything here. Drinks such as 500ml water and small Pringles are all 5 euros and are completely ripped off. On the other hand, on the right side after passing through the entrance gate, there is a vending machine that sells 500 ml of mineral water for 0.5 euros in large quantities. This shop sells at this price because it is a conviction, so please be careful. When I tried to return the bottle of water myself, the owner told me, "By Greek law, all shops cannot be returned. This is common sense!" . His wife is also a guru. Everyone, please be careful.
