We visited all 7 of the listed sites on this deal and enjoyed them all, particularly The Acropolis and the Ancient Agora! This deal is excellent value for money. Highly recommend! All 7 sites are close by and within walking distance from Monistiraki!

It's so much easier and cheaper than buying individual tickets and no lines to wait in! There is always an hour wait to get a ticket for the acropolis so think about it. Plus you have 5days to use the ticket to see all the sights included

Spiros was great! He was punctual, knowledgeable and very kind. He took us to the main attractions and told us about the places in between on the way.

This was so beneficial as we did not have to wait in any lines to pick up physical tickets. Great value to see multiple historic sites.

Great tour and amazing guide. Must do and recommend!
