Private Guided Tour: Athens, Acropolis and Acropolis Museum
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 5.5 hours
Great tour, especially the Acropolis is so much better with a guide in order to understand the context. The 1st part (“Athens Highlights”) took us to the parliament, royal gardens and Temple of Zeus. For the 2nd part (Acropolis) some additional people joined us. At the end of this tour, there was a “3rd part” where they visited the Acropolis museum - this was not included in my ticket but I decided to pay the difference and stay for that too, since I had enjoyed the morning so much! The guide Kimon was so knowledgeable and able to keep everyone interested (there was quite a diverse audience). Bear in mind the actual entrance fee is not included for the temple/Acropolis/museum so you will need to pay the guide the extra amount at the beginning of the tour).
We had the most fantastic tour with Maria Anna. We spent 5 hours with her, going on a walking tour of The magical Acropolis, a city tour in a very comfortable air conditioned coach and then finally a superb tour of The Acropolis Museum. She was so knowledgable, warm and wonderful with children and adults alike. She is part of Chat Tours, who also have exemplary customer service and suggested I upgrade my walking tour to the city tour in the air conditioned coach, and to be collected from my hotel. So considerate. My daughter and I learnt so much and loved being in the small group. I cannot recommend this tour or any others by Chat tours, with Maria Anna highly enough. 10/10.
Kimon was a terrific guide. Passionate about the subject matter and very attentive to the pace of the tour to ensure we covered all of the spots to sight-see in the allotted time. Coupling the museum tour to follow after visiting the Acropolis was great because there was so much context to the museum exhibits and flow after the walking tour. Highly recommend!!!
Very knowledgeable guide! This was the best tour!!! I don’t know what we would have done without her, we wouldn’t have near as much information or appreciation for what we experienced on this tour. 20,000 steps logged on this day. My husband has a difficult time walking and we had to take it slow. Our guide was great at accommodating and very courteous.
We learned dramatically more about Athens and its history by doing this tour as opposed to going it on our own. Kostas our guide was excellent and clearly passionate about sharing his knowledge of the history of Athens with us.
