Then, head to the Roman-era Temple of Olympian Zeus. Next, continue to the National Garden and pause outside the Hellenic Parliament. Admire the Changing of the Guard, which happens every hour. Stroll up the slopes of the ancient citadel to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, home to spectacular buildings dating back to the peak of Athens’ power: the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and so much more. Then visit the Acropolis Museum, which is home to thousands of ancient Greek artifacts found in the surrounding area. You tour ends when your minibus drops you back at your hotel.

Well worth doing. Eva was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. She brought the city, it’s history, sites and museum to life. If you have limited time in Athens then this is a must to enrich your visit.

Athens in a nutshell!!!!!
Oct 2019
We hit all the highlights! Guide was incredibly knowledgable on the architecture and history as well as the city itself. She made what we were seeing first hand come to life and become as real as possible. This was a positive way to begin our Athens experience. We hardilty recommend this agency and this tour to all who visit Athens.

A private tour is the way to go. Skip (or go to the head of) the line. Emma, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable - we learned quite a bit. She answered all of our questions. We never felt rushed.

Last stop, Athens
Aug 2019
This was the last tour before we returned to the states. We were all exhausted from 2 weeks of tours and being on the go. Our guide arrived at our hotel to gather the 8 of us and off we went. We explained how tired we were and our guide Gina was very understanding. She took her time and went at our pace all the while thoroughly explaining each site and the history behind it. We could not have asked for a better tour guide than Gina, she was very knowledgeable with everything in Athens. Please request her for your tour.

Informative Tour of Acropolis
Jun 2019 • Friends
We were picked up from our hotel promptly and driven in comfort for our tour. Marianna, our guide with a degree in archeology, was well prepared and knowledgeable about the different sites. The highlight of our tour was visiting the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Despite the high temperatures and vast crowds of people, Marianna carefully guided us through throngs of people while providing an abundance of historical information. When we were ready to return to our hotel, she offered to continue the tour of the Acropolis Museum. She was prepared, enthusiastic, welcoming, and conscientious. Condensing the audio presentation to accommodate the crowds and tour time limit could enhance this tour even more.

Very Rushed Day in Athens
May 2019 • Couples
My Mother and I met with our guide Diana right away at the cruise port for our private city tour of Athens. I had spent weeks talking back and forth with the agency organizing this tour. From the very start we felt very rushed when she introduced herself and didn't ask our names in return. Said we would have our Athens city tour on our way to the New Acropolis Museum. She pointed out Zeus Temple and then just kept going, when my paperwork stated we were getting a photo stop. Then we drove past the presidential palace while the changing of the guard was taking place and we didn't even slow down. So no pictures have been acquired at this point and I'm getting frustrated. I asked if it would be possible to stop for pictures and I was told no, there's no place to park. She also mentioned in passing that she'd have us back at the port at 4:00 pm when my paperwork stated 5:00 pm. At this point it's very clear we've irritated her and she shows me the piece of paper she was given telling her we only get two stops, the museum and the Acropolis. Then she calls her boss and we get to listen to a very uncomfortable conversation in Greek about our tour. When she does finally stop at the Parliament Building and Panathenaic Stadium for photos, she makes sure to tell me several times, she didn't have to stop here, as it wasn't on our list. So at this point I'm not having a great time as she making me feel very uncomfortable.

Diana was very knowledgeable about Greek history and could answer any question, but it felt like it was coming from a text book. I didn't feel any passion or energy from her regarding the city in which she was born. When she wasn't directly talking to us she spent almost every spare moment on her phone, texting and making/taking calls. Suffice it to say we did not have her undivided attention during our private tour. Throughout our two week holiday we took five other tours, none of the other guides were on their phones to this degree, or made us feel uncomfortable. All that being said, we were really impressed with the New Acropolis Museum and loved walking around the Parthenon. Just wish it could have been with someone who also loved their job.

Wonderful Tour
We booked a tour last minute for the day we arrived as tourist attractions would be closed on 5/1 due to Labour Day.
Our guide Stephanie & our driver were excellent! Stephanie knowledge was unprecedented! I highly recommend having a private guide & driver. We will book Siva Tours again when we return to Athens!

Our tour guide was excellent and as a trained archeologist added so much to the tour. His passion for the history of Athens was inspiring. He was very accommodating to the wide age range of our group. Our driver and vehicle were wonderful and we were easily dropped off and picked up at all the locations. This tour is highly recommended.
