    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and tour group in the Syntagma metro station, then make a brief visit to the Metro Museum. See the artifacts that were dug up when the metro station was constructed; these items help give a picture of the daily lives of ancient Athenians. 
    Move on to the House of the Greek Parliament and the Monument of the Unknown Soldier, where you will witness the changing of the guards. See native Greek flora at the National Gardens, then to the photo-worthy neoclassical architecture of Zappeion Hall. Stand below the looming surviving columns of Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Zeus, which stand in front of the hall. 
    Follow your guide through the Acropolis' south slope entrance, which is less crowded and will get you in quickly to see the Dionysus Theater and the Dionysus sanctuary. Stop for a snack and some refreshments at the Acropolis canteen (own expense) before your tour.  Explore all of the Acropolis' famous monuments, such as Pnyx Hill, Mars Hill, Philopappos, the Observatory, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Agrippa Monument, Nike Temple, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Parthenon. As you walk, snap photos and listen to your guide's engaging commentary. After your guided tour, feel free to explore independently and take photos. 
    Head down to the Ancient Agora, once the community center of ancient Athenian life, and the location of lectures by the famous philosophers Socrates and Plato. Visit the Hephaestus Temple (the best preserved Greek Temple from the 5th century BC), the CHurch of the 12 Apostles, the Temple of Apollo Patroos, the Stoa of Zeus and the Altar of Zeus.
    At the Attalos Museum, see artifacts like ancient Greek identification cards and the original weights and measures used  by the Market inspectors.
    End your tour at the ancient Agora at 3pm.

    Found the tour extremely fascinating. The guide was fantastic, with his words on the history and mythology, blending a nice mix of fact with comedy. Would recommend this tour but would would suggest wearing comfortable clothing (including footwear) for walking.

    We found Athens Walking Tours to be a good tour company for Athens tours. The combined tour of Athens, Agora, Agora Museum & Acropolis in one day was excellent. It does take 6+ hours so be prepared for a lot of walking and climbing but...More

    Anna was excellent. She practically talked for 5 hours! We went on this tour with our two tweenage sons. Was initially concern that they may not take to all the history but Anna managed to capture their attention for all of the 5 hours!

    Booked this tour last minute. The whole tour lasts 5.5 hours, so be prepared to walk. The guides offer breaks, which are much needed. The tour operates in parts and people add and drop out for various parts. I was met by my guide Chrisoula...More

    We really liked the city tour and Acropolis tour, but didn't necessarily realize that the tour we picked with the ancient Agora and Attalos Museum were different than the one that went to the Acropolis museum after the Acropolis and I would recommend doing that...More
