Angela was our guide and was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history and mythology of the Acropolis. Our family of 4 (including 18 and 20 year old) really enjoyed the morning/early afternoon being taken around the various sites. The tour is fairly long including the museum but is worth it to see the preserved parts of the sites. Bring/buy plenty of water if it's a hot day!

Our guide 'Athina' was excellent in telling the stories behind the sites we visited. Sometimes a little hard te hear, but that just meant you needed to stay close, which wasn't a burden at all. We had a challenging group, with people constantly wondering off, so I can imagine it was a challenge to not get frustrated. At the end of the tour the main part of the group left, so in the museum we had a private tour. And although she had another tour in the afternoon, she took the time to show us the most interesting pieces of the exhibition. . Loved her stories and enthusiasm! We are a whole lot of information the richer.
Sidenote; It's a lot of walking (and standing still) and this, combined with the heat, can be a challenge. So be aware of this when you go. Definitely take water with you!

My wife and I loved this tour. It covered quite a few stops including the subway history (an excavation site!), changing of the guard, pearls about the city while walking between sites, the national garden, Zeus monument, hadreons arch, Acropolis, and Acropolis museum.

A tour is a must for Athens. Not as many signs to self guide a tour yourself so having a guide adds so much value to your stay.

Our group was small (~8 total). And had an amazing tour guide (Vicky) who was truly pationate about the material and city. They also give you an ear piece to hear the tour guide as some areas can get quite buy

FYI: need cash for tickets not included in price = Acropolis, Acropolis museum, and Zeus monument. They make it easier though by buying all 3 from the tour guide at the beginning.

Wow! What a review! It is not every day that we receive feedback as detailed and thoughtful as yours. We couldn't be happier that you enjoyed the tour so much! Moreover, your comments have given us valuable insight, and we honestly thank you for taking the time to share them with us. May we add that we do have all-inclusive tour options, i.e. total online payment including the entrance fees, should someone wish to pay for everything in advance, but of course we offer the skip-the-line service to all our guests, as we buy the tickets beforehand. It would be our honor to host you and your wife again soon! Until then, keep traveling the world safely, and have an amazing day!

Guide's English was VERY weak. She had a hard time sharing whatever she knew.
Highlights of the tour are the Acropolis and the Museum and those tickets are not included in the package price. Guide did not accompany us through the Acropolis. A good guide makes the tour and ours was a complete waste of money.

Dear guest, we are terribly sorry you did not enjoy your experience. Unfortunately, you booked the non-inclusive option of the tour (tour price only), and that is why the tickets were not included. We have both inclusive and non-inclusive options as guests sometimes prebook online the sites' tickets by themselves. As for your guide's poor English, we are really surprised, as all our guides speak English fluently, but of course we will look into it right away and take corrective action immediately. Thank you for your helpful feedback, and have a wonderful day!

Absolutely amazing tour to kick off our stay in Greece! This tour took us to many of the main sites that were on our list for Athens and we learned so much more than we would have if we had just did it by ourselves. Natasha was our tour guide and she was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, answered any questions we had, and was very accommodating of our group. She also gave us a lot of great tips that we used for our second day in Athens.

There is a stop around 11:30 for snacks where there is a coffee shop with sandwiches and an ice cream shop. However, we also brought snacks with us as we knew it would be a long day- that was very helpful! Also make sure you have plenty of water and sunscreen- there's not much shade up at the acropolis.

Yes, it's a long tour, but that's clearly marked in the description of the tour, and if you don't like lots of history or being on your feet all day, they offer the tour in chunks- you could do just the acropolis, just the city, etc.

We thought the tour was of fantastic value for the price and would highly recommend!

Our tour guide, Costas was an amazing. He was very knowledgeable about both historical and current events in Athens. We had so much details about all places that were part of our tour

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is looking to learn more about Greek history and culture in 5 hours. Special thank you to Costas for making it such a memorable experience

I recommend you to buy the combo ticket (30 EUR) in the first stop of your tour

It was the right balance of walking & information for a great way to see all the key sites of Athens. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and clearly enthusiastic in recounting the history of this city. I really don’t think I would have appreciated the sites half as much without her insight. I’d thoroughly recommend this tour.

Best way to explore the ancient ruins of Athens. Koko is an amazing guide, who kept sharing little stories with us along every site and he really made history come alive. He had great energy and was super kind to find shade for us during story time :) The tour is very well constructed and I would highly recommend doing the whole tour from Syntagma Square till the Acropolis Museum as it really completes the full picture. We also had a yoghurt stop on the way :D The tour is also quite well paced and is comfortable for young and old alike.

Not our first or even our second visit to the Acropolis, the city sites, and the museum, but it has been 20 years since the last time. Therefore, we signed up for a private all-day experience to deepen our knowledge. We met in the Syntagma Square metro station/museum area with our punctual, friendly, extremely well-informed guide Helena. Despite the heat, and despite one of us being 80 years old, we climbed, we saw, we listened and we learned. Overall: Athens Walking Tours is dependable and worth every penny.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The "What to Expect section in the description is accurate, and this is exactly what happens during the tour. Along the way to and during each of the activities, interesting facts were shared by the guide. This is great for individuals who want to get more background on the various sites and museum artifacts. I appreciated the tour guide stopping every once in a while and not rushing through the tour. It was also a very hot day, and he was extremely conscious of finding spots that were shady. The Acropolis was extremely packed, so skipping the lines was a big plus. Lastly, it was nice to walk around the city and see parts that I would definitely not see while driving in a car.
