Great information to help you understand the site.

Our guide and initial greeters were kind, knowledgable and concerned for our experience. They met us in the Metro station as promised and found a place nearby for us to use the toilet at the last minute, offered cold water, warned us of pickpockets etc. The guide was informative, made time for personal requests, and showed particular concern for w/1 couple w/medical issues. The only disappointing thing was that in trying to meet personal requests/questions we ended up w/only 10 mins to explore on our own at the Acropolis top. It also seemed like the facility closed earlier than normal, but I'm not sure why. It worked out fine and is worth the money and time to see this amazing historical site.

Great tour

Well managed tour. App purchase of skip the line tour was very easy and secure (Paypal), although there was not a long queue when we went. Guides were easy to locate in Acropolis metro, provided water and offered sun cream. Plenty of rest stops and very informative talks at all the key attractions. The guide had visual aids, which helped show the buildings in historical context. Guide was helpful in pointing out good places to take photos. Tour ended at the top, allowing time to explore. Was last tour before site closed, so saw the taking down the flag ceremony at the end. Would recommend.

Fantastic, knowledgable tour guide

This tour was superb - the tour guide absolutely loves history and had so much amazing information to share with us. We asked lots of follow up questions, and it was clear he knew lots of information about Acropolis. The end of day tour was also great - the sun looked beautiful while starting to set and there were fewer people milling about. I definitely recommend this tour!
