Fantastic and Informative Tour
Aug 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed the Acropolis and museum tour with Athens Walks. Our tour guide was Effie and she provided a wonderful experience. Effie is originally an archaeologist so was extremely knowledgeable about the Acropolis and the artifacts within the museum. The tour was much more than pointing out the sites as we learned about the lives and practices of ancient Athenians. This guided tour really made the Acropolis and Museum come to life.

Incredible tour!
We absolutely loved our museum and Acropolis tour with Dorina! She is incredibly engaging, wonderful on the ear and full of knowledge. We especially enjoyed when she recited a passage from Henry Miller as we sat under a tree gazing up at the Acropolis. It felt like time stopped despite the buzz of the crowds around us. A beautiful moment. Everyone wears headphones which allows you to easily drift from the group explore or take photos while not missing a single word. I would highly recommend the museum tour - it is beautifully laid out and only takes an hour and a half. Incredible to see the originals as some of the items at the Acropolis are only replicas. My 72 year old mom, who has a bum knee, was with us, but Dorina moved at a very easy pace so she had no trouble keeping up. If you only have one day in Athens - as we did! - make sure to do this tour!!

Better than standing in line

The line ups for the Acropolis are terrible. Better to get the skip-the-line pass. Although it works for the museum, we did not stay long, too much to see in Athens.

Glad we did it as the exhibits further explain and complement the history and what one experiences in the actual Acropolis park visit.

Highlight of my trip in Athens!
My tour guide is Mariza and she is one of the best tour guides I have. Mariza is very knowledgeable and passionate about history. During our tour, not only she explained all the important facts that help me appreciate Acropolis more, but also she pointed to important details that I would not be able to find myself. Highly recommended!

Brilliant tour - a perfect way to see the acropolis and museum
Sep 2019 • Solo
Jiota was our tour guide - she’s extremely knowledgable and friendly - Appreciating when we wanted to hear stories about the Acropolis and when we wanted to take pictures. I loved the whole experience and it’s definitely the best way to experience this important part of Athens. We had a fun group of people and everyone got involved. It was great to be able to skip the queue at the Acropolis museum - which is a must-see - an incredible place. All together *****

Maria M. gave my sister and I an amazing tour. She went above and beyond to give us more information on each temple and give information on the sites from past to present. I would do this tour again because it was truly the best experience in Athens I had!
