Marianna made this visit to the Acropolis really interesting. She was really clear and welearned a lot about the history of the Acropolis and also the new museum without being overwhelmed.

No visit to Greece would be complete without a visit to historical Athens and the Acropolis. Yes, everyone has seen pictures of these sites, but being there to see it in person is entirely different. Listening to the tour guides explain how these sites were built and what is being done to preserve them is amazing. The walking is not very strenuous so people of all ages are able to go. I was surprised by how close we were able to get to the remnants of the Acropolis.

This was a great tour, particularly if you have never been to Athens or have limited time. It hits all the highlights, is well paced and the guide was outstanding. She really knew the history yet made it very accessible and put things into context.

Having done the bike tour the day before we were excited to see and learn more. It was suggested by another company that afternoons are quieter but this company only do morning tours . We met in the hotel no one was particularly friendly and we didn’t feel welcomed. Effy was our guide who spoke at length at various stops. Views expressed were her own seeking to put across a particular nationalistic or political view. It lacked humour and there was no connection. At times I felt bored. I would have liked to have learn more about the Acropolis than the gods!! For what we received ( we had to pay extra for Acropolis) this was expensive compared to bike tour that included bike and coffee stop.

When a tour is disappointing, it's tempting to write a scathing review – I will try to be objective. It was unfortunate that our guide had a heavy accent and was difficult to understand. It was also unfortunate that some of the information she provided was wrong. She was also apparently more concerned by taking phone calls from the office than providing an uninterrupted commentary. One thing we would definitely recommend is that after the tour is finished, you go to the Acropolis Museum – they have done a magnificent job at preserving and presenting an extraordinary array of antiquities.

It was a waste of money! We downloaded the tour before we left. It wouldn’t play. We spoke to a man half way up and he said it would only work at the top of the Acropolis. It did but only sporadically. Caused us way too much frustration. Not worth it!

We would like to mention that you participated our Historical Walking Tour of Athens on the date that we made a test of a new application which we want to include in our tour services.

I took the tour today. I arrived at the hotel Amalia at 9:00 because I did not want to be late for a tour that is scheduled at 9:30. To my dismay it didn't actually start until 9:50am. I was informed it officially starts at 9:45, not 9:30 ( the next 5 mins we spent waiting for other group members who never actually showed). The tour went as planned until we got close to Plaka. The guide stopped at the entrance and explained that the maze of streets that make up plaka were in the direction that she was pointing. When I asked if we would not be exploring Plaka, as outlined in the tour I formation given, she flatly told me no, Plaka is NOT a part of the tour! Even though, again the tour information clearly states that it is, and that we were welcome to check it out on our own, once the tour ends, wit that we were on our way to Acropolis, where the tou that started 20 mins after it's advertised time, ended promptly at 12:30 PM. The guide herself was very personable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, but I had a terrible case of buyers remorse.
In a nutshell, you do not get a 3 hour tour and further you do not get to see all the places said to be included. Keep in mind, with the exception of Acropolis, which is an additional 20 euros for entry, you can visit all the places included in this tour, for free.

Hello from Chat Tours, We would like to clarify this case . Our historical Acropolsi Walking tour departs at 09:45 am from Amalia Hotel . The meeting time at the Amalia Hotel is 09:30 am . In these fifteen minutes , we have to check in the whole group and inform you about your tour schedule and details. We cannot leave before 09:45 am especially when we are missing somebody . But we always depart at 09:45 am as we have to attend the changing of the guards at the Parliament at 10:00 am . As far as the part of Plaka area, we note at your vouchers that we are walking to Acropolis area thpugh Plaka. It is not written that we provide fully guided tour at Plaka . You have the chance to explore it after the end of the guided tour of Acropolsi having information given by your guide. Last but not least ,the entrance fee is clearly not included at this product as a lot of customers have already tickets of the site and in this way they do not have to pay again the ticket when they purchase this package tour. We hope that we explained with details your concerns. Always at your disposal, Angelina Skyla.

Mina, our guide served us juicy chunks of history with a delightful sense of humour. She suggested also to try Hermion Taverna for our final night’s dinner. Excellent dinner experience and excellent guide.
