Full description
Meet your dedicated guide at a hot spot for traditional Greek delicacies, where there are restroom facilities and you can purchase water or snacks. Then let your guide take you onto the Pnyx Hill, which is the actual birthplace of democracy.

Continue to immerse yourself in Ancient Greek history on a 50-minute tour of the world-famous Acropolis in Athens. Skip the ticket line and discover the cradle of the Western civilization on a guided visit in a small group. Admire the stunning architecture of the Parthenon Temple and learn the importance of the Erechtheion Temple. Hear myths and stories about ancient Athens from your expert guide.

And that is not all. After your guided tour, you have the option to stay on the hill to explore further at your own pace and enjoy the view over the city and up to the Aegean Sea. Your guide will show you a different route towards the south exit so that you also see the Altar of Asclepius and the Theater of Dionysus, the birthplace of theater drama.

I enjoyed the smaller group size. Watching large groups walk around like confused zombies made me realize that I made the right choice with Get Your Guide. The meeting spot was easy to find. We had enough time to buy water & have espresso. The first incline is the hardest, so be prepared for that. When you guide tells you the stones are slippery, believe them!!

Guide was pretty knowledgable. Only part of tour that was difficult was meeting the group. We were a few minutes late to the meeting point and nearly wasted 30 minutes trying to figure out where to meet the guide. It is better to get there in the morning as it does get super busy and crowded around 10/11 AM.
