So glad we did this! I will say that I was a bit confused about the fact that this didn't include tickets. I wasn't sure if we should try to buy them beforehand or not. But the tour started at a smaller site so it was super quick to buy tickets. The tickets needed are the ones for multiple sites for €30. Once the tour got started, our guide was informative and entertaining. She clearly knows her information and you can tell that she enjoys her job. I highly recommend this tour!

Kimon was an excellent French-speaking guide, very knowledgeable and captivating. The tour itself was comprehensive, with free time included as well. Moreover, Kimon stayed available at the end for all additional questions. Highly recommended.

The tour was very informative and moved at a good pace. They give you ear buds to wear so you can hear to guide and social distance. They gave us a good amount of time at each stop to explore and take pictures.

Our guide Helen was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable and funny. The tour was very organized. I left very intrigued to learn more Greek Mythology. Wouldn’t have had the same experience without her guidance

A great way to learn more about the mythology attached to key ancient monuments in Athens
