What people are saying about Makrygianni

Our family of 4 had Harula as our private guide, and we spent an enjoyable 4 hrs learning and discussing mythology, Roman influence, how Athens became the capital of Greece, how its monarchy back then were actually Bavarians, etc. This tour is well worth the cost to maximize your time and education while at this amazing place. If you’re short on time, pick a tour where Zeus’s Temple is not included, but definitely get a guide for both the Acropolis and the museum to fully understand and appreciate these archaeological treasures.

Ari was amazing! Went above and beyond, had some fantastic information to share and kept the tour interesting. Highly recommend. Oh, and it helps that's he's an archeologist!!! Great tour.
