A very comprehensive tour with an excellent guide

Dorina our guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and energetic. She told us about history, religion, geography, and more. The tour started in a barely visited area near the Acropolis where we visited a handful of ancient sites, saw some interesting ruins, and learned a lot about the history of Athens and the Greeks. After about an hour, we climbed up to the Acropolis where we saw the major sites and learned more about them. Overall, Dorina spent over two hours with us. At the end, we had the opportunity to explore more on our own.

Mostly good, but hard to keep track of where everything is

The information was good but it needed more pictures of what we should be seeing. They had multiple entries where they were talking about a specific spot or statue and I could not find it for the life of me , and I know most of them aren't there anymore but I couldn't find where it should be . Also all of the information was from the construction and building and nothing after so we didn't even tell us why there was no roof . Still, the information was interesting and I did enjoy it 4 out of 5

Perfect way to explore acropolis on your own!

It works easily (use WiFi though and put the app & tour on your phone in advance). You can do everything at your own pace and decide to listen everything or just a few stories. Stories are short and easy to listen to. Great way of exploring the acropolis with all its beautiful sites!

Helpful, depends on the time of the year

We went in September and I’m sure if we had gone first thing in the morning it would have been well worth it. We went around 9:30 and there was only a line of 40 or so. Although it was probably worth it to skip the line. The acropolis was insanely crowded, but still enjoyable.

Very good tour with more history than just the acropolis!

The guide was really good at telling us a lot of history. We visited the acropolis but also the hill adjacent to it where we learned a lot about the history and politics of the ancient Greece. Very recommended!
