Good tour. You get what you book. 3-4 sightseeing mostly from the bus and stops at the stadium and the Acropolis which is a must. The guide Elena was very knowledgable and always informing us about the history of Athens. Recommended if you are running out of time and looking for a quick tour with a knowledgable guide.

This tour was by far the best one from the three we booked through Getyourguide.com. (0 rating for Istanbul’s Ottoman Wonders with Topkapi, 3 stars for Istanbul’sByzantine with Blue Mosque and 5 stars for this one). Our guide, George Rostandis, an archeologist, was very professional, and very well informed about the sites of the tour. As planned we were picked up at our hotel by a van and did a tour of the city which gave us an insight into today's Greece and the Greek people. We ended the tour with the Temple of Olympian Zeus and finally the gem, the Acropolis. We greatly enjoyed every moment of the tour which was significantly enhanced by the knowledge of our tour guide.

I kinda had an issue finding the meeting point and key tours was thankfully flexible enough to pick me up at another place. Thank you so much (otherwise I wouldve missed the transport) :). The Acropolis is a must see spot when youre in Athens. The massive buildings just blow you away & the view from there is exceptional. Our guide Anastasia was great, she gave us a lot of infos on Athens and the history around the Acropolis. She always saw to it that the group stays together.
