Are Greek tour guides paid by the words they speak? I would think so, because the ones I had just couldn't keep quiet. The one I had for this tour of the Acropolis was verbose and controlling. The Acropolis was great, and if you're in Greece, it's a must see. But when we went to the Acropolis museum, the guide had to control everything. We had no time to to explore the museum ourselves. She just took us from one exhibit to another and rambled on extended monologues. All the artifacts had an explanation. We didn't need her to give us a thesis on the topic. Midway through the tour, I stopped listening. I was supposed to have lunch, but I skipped out just to give my ears some rest.

My family did this full day tour and we weren't disappointed. I can't remember our guides name but he was fabulous and extremely knowledgeable. The tour was on Thursday, October 3, 2019. We had him the entire day which was perfect. Especially since some complain of getting different guides in the afternoon. We did lose him briefly. After coming down from the Acropolis, he said we could stop to buy water. However, after we did that when we were done the group was gone. He didn't tell us they were leaving. We got a little nervous since we'd paid for the full day tour and lunch. Fortunately, we were able to find him since he did tell us before hand that if for any reason we get separated to meet him at The Acropolis Museum. So we did join the group there. Only one tip, he should have mentioned that we didn't have to wait in line since we already had prepaid tickets. We simply took a chance and showed it to a staff member outside, and she kindly let us go in bypassing the line as it should've been. Our guide was with us in the morning, he escorted us to the Arcadia Restaurant for lunch (Which was absolutely delicious). He told us what time to met at the tour office for our afternoon tour which was a quick and easy 15 minute walk from the restaurant using GPS. (there was about a 15 minute wait in the office to get everything and everyone together). Then we took a nice relaxing drive down to Cape Sounion which was breathtaking. All the sights going there, the Poseidon's Temple while there and coming back were wonderful. It was such a nice way to spend the afternoon even though we returned about 7pm (a little later than anticipated).

We enjoyed our tour of Athens' main attractions, but I can't look back on this tour and say it was the best we've been on or that I'd recommend this one to others. I can't quite explain why, except to say that we felt like there wasn't enough time to visit everything or to see the exhibits, entrance fees were not included, and, though Poseidon's temple was worth it, the drive out there is largely uneventful (perhaps they should add some time at a beach as a draw that would make it worth it...)

Dear Guest, Thank you for your precious time to send us your respected review. Despite the fact that your review is fully respected by us, I would like to make clear some facts about this specific tour: This tour depart for a photo stop at Panathinaiko Stadium, pass by Zappeion, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Athens Trilogy which includes the University of Athens, the Academy of Athens, and the National Library and also National Garden, Hadrian’s Arc, St. Paul’s Church, Parliament, Tomb of the Unknown soldier, Schliemann’s House (Numismatic Museum), Catholic Cathedral, Old Parliament, Constitution Square, Russian Orthodox Church. It continues with a guided tour both to Acropolis Arch. Site and the renowned Acropolis Museum with their unique history and global prestige. We also offer a lunch under the slopes of Acropolis and then we drive along magnificent Athens Riviera and the astonishing Athens suburbs in order for you to visit the Cape Sounio Arch. site and the Temple of Poseidon and also enjoy the iconic view of the Saronic Gulf. I trust you understand we offer the best possible and the most complete experience anyone can gets in an one day tour in a big city such as Athens with so many points of historical and archaeological interest and that in an organized tour we have to stay punctual to our initial and carefully designed schedule. Not to mention that we also offer private tours for those guests who are willing to fully customize their experience and pay a significant price difference. I hope this helps and I always remain at your disposal. Kindest Regards, Dimitris Bistolas | Managing Director

Tour guide was very rude (named Costas with Key Tours). First we were broken up into tour groups based on nationality. I did not feel safe with this at the time. It was very evident that they did this on purpose even though we were with other english speaking people at the time. The tour was very rushed. I could have saved time and money going to the museums on my own. We were not allowed to go to the souvenir shop and I went back the next day on my own for a tour book because he went so fast. The lunch was burnt and horrible (how do you burn pita bread?) then we were again rushed for the tour to Poseidon's temple. I believe the only way to the temple is by a tour bus though so you are stuck. Our guide kept yelling not to drink on the bus even though it was very hot, and to not speak while he was talking. There were young children on the bus so this was impossible. Our guide was so rude to me I called him a jerk and ended the tour by walking and exploring everything by myself. I had a better time this way. My trip to Greece was magical however I can never recommend this tour company.

We were on a huge tour bus that seemed to be driving in circles around the same 3 streets. I would have liked to stop at Zeus's Temple and the changing of the guard at Parliament but we only drove by quickly. We did make one stop at the Olympic Stadium to take pictures. By the time we got to the Acropolis, all of the cruise ship tours were there and it was very crowded and difficult to climb up to the area and then back down. The tour guide did not seem to know what she was doing. She was very confused about everything and disorganized. We booked a full day tour but it ended after lunch. The tour guide said goodbye at the restaurant and left. It wound up being a 3 hour tour. If the tour was supposed to continue in the afternoon, we were not aware of where to meet anyone after lunch. Everyone on the tour was confused as to what was going on. We thought everyone was on the same full day tour. I think it was a combination of a half and full day tour in the morning with the full day people continuing on after lunch. Some people did not even know about lunch. It was not very enjoyable.

I was very disappointed by Key Tours. We were picked up at our hotel on time. We drove around and picked up others. We then stopped and everyone was dispersed to other buses. I have traveled extensively but have never had to get off a bus and get on another one. It was very chaotic and confusing.

We then proceeded on our tour to the Acropolis. Our guide was very knowledgeable but it felt like she was reading out of a text book. Once we arrived, and after a 30 minute bathroom break, she would provide a history lesson for 10 minutes, we would walk a little further and have another history lesson. Although the information was useful, it became very long as everyone was very anxious to see the Acropolis. It took us close to an hour after getting off the bus to get into the gates ... and it's only a 5 minute walk. Once we were inside, we had very little time to enjoy the sites and only had 15 minutes free time.

After the Acropolis, we walked over to the Acropolis Museum. Again, it was a long process as our guide had to stop for another 30 minutes for a bathroom break. We then had to follow her around the museum. Again, she was very knowledgeable but I would have enjoyed some free time to see what I wanted to see, rather than what she wanted to show us. I felt like we missed half the museum. There is an archaeological site under the museum that I would have liked to explore but we didn't have a chance.

We were scheduled for a full day tour, us and two other people. So after the museum, our guide told us to head to a restaurant down the street on our own and tell them we were with the tour. But we had to be back at the office by 2:45. We were totally on our own .... no help, no guide. We eventually found the restaurant and even they were surprised that we weren't with a guide. By the time we got our food, we had 20 minutes to find our way back to the office. We had to use google maps to find our way around the city. Once back at the office, we were shepherded to yet another bus for our afternoon trip.

I have never been on a tour where we were left on our own to find a restaurant and then find our way back to the head office.

After our afternoon tour, our second guide also left us on the bus to figure out our stop at the hotels.

I would definitely NOT recommend this tour company.

Reliable pick-up from Hotel. Polite staff. Clean coach/bus. Very knowledgeable guide Anastasia. Vivid descriptions and explanations. Good timing. Good mix of guided visit and enough, but not too much free time to check out things in detail and/or take photos.
Highly commendable!
Perfect!

Morning tour of Athens was good, learned alot from our guide. Good insight in museum as well. Lunch was very good, at the Arcadia. Afternoon tour was a long ride to see more ruins. Views were great, but in hind sight, I might have skipped the afternoon tour and just spent more time in the Acropolis area.
