      Perfect !
      Our tour was amazing - very informative and perfect as we got into places before the cruise ship crowds showed up. This gives you access to the museum.

      Fun and informative.
      A superb way to appreciate the best of Greek cuisine. Annabellia, our very knowledgeable guide, couldn’t have been more helpful. The information she gave on food and local amenities was impressive. The easy tour lasted over 4 hours and stopped at six very different locations with various foods and dishes sampled. The comprehensive instructions from the organisers wisely suggest not to eat before the trip and they were right as by the end we were very full. We were looked after extremely well, learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

      Athens in a nutshell ( without the nuts.. )
      Adele was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We visited 7 different stops varying from side street food, market to bar and hotel. There was plenty to try in terms of food and we came away with leftovers!

      A great tour, Anna is a wonderful guide!
      Anna is an excellent guide and knows the area extremely well. She mixes in history and information about the city and neighborhoods, and along the way we got to sample a variety of different foods. Don’t eat before this tour and pace yourself because there is so much food!

      Highly recommend
      What better way to sample Greek food and see the food markets whilst seeing some of the less touristy areas of Athens. Anna our guide was very friendly and informative. Warning- make sure you are really hungry before you start the trip and don’t binge at the first food stop - there is a lot of food on offer.

      Great tour
      Really enjoyed this tour, my guide Jordina was very knowledgable and friendly. I definitely got a lot more out of seeing the acropolis with a guide versus just walking around alone. Lots of great views and photo opportunities there and of course the main buildings such as the parthenon are a must see. I also ended up paying extra to add on the acropolis museum tour too which I also enjoyed.

      Great Food Tour
      We always try and do a food tour in new cities and this tour was one of the best. Anna was very friendly, knowledgable, and helpful throughout the tour. There were lots of different foods and I definitely felt full after and could not eat again that day.

      We can’t say enough good about the Athens Walks food tour. Ana, our tour guide, was awesome. She was fun, full of energy, knowledgeable, and knew everyone on our old town walk. The food was amazing and we would highly recommend this tour. Be sure you come hungry! 😊

      Not Great
      We were told to meet outside a particular pastry shop at 12 where we duly waited alongside another person waiting for the tour .10 mins late a lady came us and introduced herself saying she was our guide but there were no ID or a folder or clipboard showing company Logo or anything else for that matter but we went with it as no one else was near She took us firstly to a local convenience store where she explained about the history of fruits and nuts to the ancient Athenians where we also tasted 1 pistachio nut 1 fig a raisin and had a sip of mastic liquor We then had a piece of spinach pie which the locals eat as a fast breakfast all be it 1 piece cut into 4 Was slightly disconcerted when the guide wouldn't even taste what we we eating though ? We then went on a roundabout route to a local honey shop where the owner who was great allowing us to try various honeys and explaining both the history and uses of this wonderful substance We then proceeded to Hootut True pittas where we had an amazing pitta "unfortunately we had eaten there the day before from a recommendation by the Acropolis guide and new the price of each Pitta "Heartily recommend this a snack stop " Then after eating the pitta we were told that lunch stop would be in 5 mins ?? On arrival we were seated on the upper balcony great for people watching and the guide explained about local foods we would be having Stuffed pepper, stuffed tomato and a pasta based Mousaka with a aubergine dip with an accompanying drink of wine or beer and a traditional coffee Upon completion some 30 mins later we were then told that a local desert place would give us some sweet doughballs with honey Quantity of food good Explanations and local information Average tour guide enthusiasm Poor It felt like we were an inconvenience I get you can't please all the people but total time start to finish 2 hrs 40 mins and did some research prices and food total price for both of us 48 euros and tour cost £109 UK NOT GREAT

    Artemis was an excellent tour guide! She was super knowledgeable and made the experience that much more enjoyable. The background and details she added made us appreciate the history and the views more. I recommend also doing the guided museum tour because it connected the dots and helped provide a better understanding of what you saw and experienced.

    The tour was organized very well and flowed seamlessly from the Acropolis portion to the Museum portion. Our tour guide, Liza, gave us the proper historical context at each monument, which really enhanced our overall tour. She was able to keep us well engaged throughout the 4 hour tour, and we all left feeling that it was an enjoyable experience. We highly recommend this tour to any other visitors interested in visiting Acropolis.

    Amazingly detailed, informative and knowledgeable guide - Kimon!!!
    He made the tour fun and entertaining and kept our young kids (ages 7, 11 and 12) engrossed on a very hot summer day . I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the acropolis. Kimono’s English was excellent as well and he always gave us heads up about what lay ahead and how much time we would take for a particular activity. Gave us great tips re. Water stops and restrooms and very respectful of all guests in the group. Loved the structure of the tour and how well the guide executed the tour.

    Our tour guide Dorena was excellent, full of knowledge and great communication. We did the acropolis and museum tour which I highly recommend, you get to see the Acropolis of course and in the museum is loads of artefacts and statutes they’ve recovered from around the area.

    On the tour, the guide is fitted with a microphone and you get a single side earphone which is perfectly adequate but I would recommend taking some wired earphones to use instead of the one supplied for comfort.

    Our tour guide, Lisa, was amazing! She was incredibly knowledgeable (an archaeologist!), very personable, and her voice was perfect! We had earbuds so that we could hear her clearly. However, when looking around at other tour guides....they were shouting, even if their group had earbuds, too. There was no need for all of that! Lisa's voice was calm and pleasant and clear the entire time. She made sure that we found shady spots whenever we could (although the temp was just about perfect in early October), and she was always counting us and making sure everyone was with her. Although you CAN visit the Acropolis by yourself, I highly recommend taking this tour or you will miss so much wonderful information.

    Dora was an excellent guide. Despite the extreme heat of the day and the crowds, she kept her cool, delivering fun and interesting historical information that brought these ancient ruins to life. As far as logistics, she was great at making sure that everyone was together, and finding shade for our stops. She delivered a wonderful introduction to the Acropolis Museum, and we stayed longer to explore in greater depth what she’d shown us.

    Small group of around 13 people in our group - met at the office of the company near Metro and Acropolis entrance. Had to wait a while for other group members to arrive despite being asked to arrive early (was a busy and very hot July day). They have a selection of disposable earpieces if the ones they give you don’t fit, so don’t be afraid to ask! The guide, Chris was very knowledgeable about the site and also other history/ language topics. The site was very busy but we stopped fairly regularly and had time around the Parthenon for drinks/ rest/ pictures etc. Tour of the Museum was mostly the ‘highlights’ but as it needed there you can stay inside and go around yourself. Would recommend this tour as a way to bring the Ancient History of Greece alive and skip the queues!

    Just Do It - this is one of the best tours we have done. Our guide was Kimon who was extremely informative and knowledgeable. He brought the history of the Acropolis alive and answered all our questions. He took us to the top of the Acropolis but did it in a way that all fitness levels could manage. He not only informed us but entertained us for the whole duration of the tour. Everyone felt included , valued and heard. We highly recommend taking up the optional museum tour as well. A great day.

    My husband and I did the morning tour with Maria in July. She is so knowledgeable and explains it all so well. She does a great job of pulling everyone in - children, teenagers and the adults.
    Loved the tour and especially enjoyed walking through the museum with Maria. She brought it all to life! Thank you for an excellent morning in Athrns.

    My walking tour of the Acropolis and the Parthenon in Athens was an absolute highlight of my trip, and I owe it all to our amazing tour guide. She was not just knowledgeable but incredibly passionate, and you could tell she must be an exceptional teacher, as her love for history was simply contagious.

    From the moment the tour began, it was evident that our guide was an expert in her field. Her in-depth knowledge of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, along with her ability to bring history to life, made the entire experience incredibly engaging. She effortlessly transported us back in time, helping us imagine the grandeur and significance of these ancient monuments.

    What struck me most was her ability to connect with the group. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and her storytelling was captivating. It's no surprise that her students must adore her, as she had a way of making complex historical information both accessible and entertaining.

    The Acropolis and Parthenon are iconic landmarks, and this tour truly did them justice. It was a privilege to explore these ancient wonders with such an outstanding guide. If you want to fully appreciate the history and significance of these sites, I highly recommend this tour. It's a 5-star experience led by an amazing guide.
