    Great view & great exercise option
    Amazing view. We were there for sunset and was crowded, as expected. Was not easy to find the fanicular car. A nice workout to get to the base of the hill. Worth the effort & a to do while visiting Athens

    Fantatsic views of the city from its highest vantage point.
    It's a steep walk up but well worth the effort for the views at the top. The only place where you can see the whole city laid out before you all the way to the sea.

    Wonderful historic site with an excellent Tour Guide
    Booked the early morning tour and skip the line tickets. Little bit more expensive but meant we were ahead of the crowds and completing the tour before it got too hot. We booked with Viator who were easy to deal with and who provided an excellent tour guide, Artemis. Artemis was the perfect guide. She was friendly, fun and very very knowledgeable. She pitched her tour perfectly with just the right amount of information, history and direction. She even knew where the best places were to get the perfect photo/selfie. We visited in October and found the weather great for sightseeing. Not too hot but nice enough not to need coats etc. It also meant that the crowds weren't quite as big.

    Visit to the Acropolis
    When buying my tickets I noticed that preferential rates for over 65 year old are only to EEC and EEA citizens. Surely it can’t be legal to discriminate against over 65 year old from other countries in this way.

She was very informative, knows everything about the history of the city and I would highly recommend for anyone wanting to see the real Athens. Thanks Eleni Gkika!!!

    Fantastic day with Dionysis & Hercules
    Just been up with a group of 12 ladies and Dionysis & Hercules gave us a fantastic walking tour. We saw sights we would never have found on our own and they took us to the fantastic Deli Miran Meze which is a destination in itself. We had a history lesson but in a most interesting way that we never wanted the tour to end. They were also very patient if we lost one of the group into a shop and also so kind to the slower walkers in the group. The street art was incredible. I highly recommend these two guides and still have a smile when I look at my photos.

    Not as cool as described
    I'd like to start by saying that as a minorities in the US my partner and I attempt to avoid profiling folks based on looks but that is often hard when you are in a foreign country about to meet a stranger for a private tour. UAC needs to set up some minimum standards of presentation because the guide we met looked hunger over and his UAC bag looked so old and almost no legit. His first recommendation was to NOT walk to the base of Mt. Lycabettus and instead that he would pay for a taxi to the base. He was then annoyed when we tried to say we wanted to walk it all. He also seemed offended when we asked for his tour guide badge. It all seemed like a scam. The storytelling was NOT as exciting as described and the certainly did not visit any secret restaurants in the market. At one point the guide started smoking during our walk. It was a mess. We had had a walking tour 2 days before in Athens so this was certainly a let down compared to the professionalism we had experienced earlier. We have done many walking tours in Latin American, Europe and Asia and this certainly was not what we expected and did not match the description. A very big let down on our 2nd to last day in Athens.

I was fortunate to be the only client on tour, so Dionysus/Dennis agreed we could wander into places I had not been yet and so we did. My extended conversations with him were a highlight of my Greek trip. I peppered him with questions.... Well educated about the historical sights we were seeing, both ancient and modern, Dennis gave me historical context, shared his views about culture and politics and gave me a sense of what it is like to be a Greek in this modern world. I appreciated him greatly, as well as the walk around what I considered to be greater hidden gems, the Monasteraki and Psiri neighborhoods, which I might not have gotten to on my own, or with such insight into what makes those neighborhoods unique.

The person who guided me (Eleni) was beyond amazing! She accommodated the schedule due to a problem with subway (fires), and I was stuck at the airport, trying to check-in at the hostel and show up for the tour! Best part: I didn’t ask! She offered as soon as she heard I would not make on time! Besides that, she took me to places where I barely saw a tourist, but I found many hidden gems (indeed), such as graffiti, and she also has a lot of knowledge about the places (she will share everything with you)! Eleni also pointed out places to eat and what to order!
I had a great time and I recommend this tour and her!
