What people are saying about Athens

Marvelous to see Acropolis! Very hard to follow the audio

First, we loved the skip the line ticket again. There was a line. We went right in. I purchased the audio tour for my daughters and I, because last time I visited the Acropolis I would have enjoyed a little explanation about the marvel I was looking at. The audio was filled with facts and information. However, it was somewhat difficult to know where and what it was talking about. This may seem ignorant, but what is "Bastien"? it kept talking about the bastien on the right and left and I did not know what it was referring to. I wish it had a few pictures with the audio to show which side and which structure it was talking about. I spent most of my time wondering "am I looking at the right thing?" There is a map... but again, it is hard to decipher which is structure 1, 2, 3... I ended up skipping a few and listening to the ones I could for sure understand. A contributing factor may be how windy it was on that day. However, with that said it's still amazing and full of facts.

Long day but worth it for the views and the archaeological sites

The trip was well organised with the tour van arriving on time. Our driver was keen to give us information about living in Athens which was interesting. The various sights are definitely worth seeing and we met our guide for each at the various locations. The meet & greet was well organised and I never felt I was being abandoned at any point. We were shown all the important areas and artifacts in the the museums which was good. My only criticism would be that we had a very long lunch break in Nafplio which seemed longer than necessary. Overall however I would recommend the tour if you want a small group experience and want to see these archaeological sites.

The train trip was a excellent idea to experience the landscape.

The trip on day of arrival was an amazing experience. The sunset and everything. Evelyn and Kostas were both great as guide and drivers. I would suggest that you think of something like taking people to the countryside instead of 2nddays to monestries and the 3rd day of just hanging around doing nothing while waiting till its time for the train to leave.... The second visit to monestries could rather be worked in on 3rd day while you show the people the forests and stuff on 2nd day.

Well organised tour of the Acropolis & Museum

I took the Acropolis & Acropolis Museum tour with Athenian Tours at the end of June. It was a thoroughly enjoyable & well organised small groups tour with an informative guide. All the tickets had been bought in advance so we were able to jump all the queues which meant that we had more time to view the sights. I would happily recommend taking this tour if you want the small group experience & want to feel culturally informed afterwards.

our guide was so knowledgeable and caring for our wellbeing (heatwave

I cant thank our guide up the Acropolis enough - she took us into another world of history and intrigue, so very interesting. And she cared for us so very well - as it was a dramatic heatwave last week, she found us shade to partake in her considerable knowledge. Thank you so much - made it very special.
