Full description
Meet your licensed guide, an experienced archaeologist, and walk to the Acropolis, one of the most important collections of ancient buildings in the world. Learn about the history of the hilltop, with evidence of habitation stretching back over 6,000 years. Explore the construction of its most famous buildings, including the venerable Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Porch of the Caryatids at the Erechtheion, and the gateway to the Propylaea. As the sun sinks into the gulf, the twilight illuminates these ancient buildings in a timeless glow that conjures the spirit of 2,500 years of history.

An incredibly nice experience with Mr. Stelios. A very nice and personable guide showed us all his knowledge in more than two hours planned, with a lot of stories on the side, different anecdotes and with the further details. We were extremely lucky because we practically had a private tour with him. It was very hot, but Mr. Stelios endured it very well and tirelessly passed on a lot of knowledge to us. He speaks perfect German because he grew up in Germany himself but has been living in Athens again for a while. Absolutely a recommendation, it couldn't have been better for us and that's why we recommend it to anyone who wants to really inquire about the Acropolis.

The tour was totally worth it for us. Due to only a few tourists, we had a private tour of the Acropolis and had super nice impressions. A big compliment to our guide Christina. She explained the story to us so clearly that we will never forget our stay on the Acropolis!

It couldn't be more perfect!

We (6 people) booked a German-speaking tour and our expectations were more than exceeded! A German / Greek archeology / art / history student conveyed to us the history of the Acropolis, including myths and anecdotes, in a refreshing, sympathetic and lively manner, so that it never became tough or tedious. A lot of consideration was given to a slightly handicapped participant and many breaks were taken in which extremely interesting knowledge was imparted! Contents that were too dry or too many historical numbers were deliberately avoided, so that it always remained extremely exciting and interesting. The guide was able to adjust specifically to the interests of our group! There probably wouldn't have been a question he didn't know the answer to! We can recommend this guide to absolutely everyone! For us it was an unforgettable experience!
