Worth the money!

Stella was exceptional - she made the history of the Acropolis come alive. She brought interesting pictures and diagrams and told wonderful stories of the architecture, design and history of the area. Without a tour guide, you'd really be missing out unless you have several hours to read about the area's history

Totally worth it!

It was great starting at 5pm as we avoided the massive crowds and close to sunset just enhanced the colours and experience. Our guide was very knowledgable, it is so much better than to visit the site without knowing anything about what you are seeing. I was also very lucky there was only one other lady in my group so it was like a private tour. All in all, great tour and learned so much!

We had an excursion in German, were 2 adults and 3 kids. The content was interesting for any age, we could also discuss and ask questions. The excursion was very lively with many interesting details, afterwards the guide gave us also great hints on what else we can see in Athens.
