This is an unmissable opportunity to enjoy a pleasant stroll around the historical area of the Acropolis hill and get introduced to its highlights and some of its most unexpected secrets.

    Hugely disappointed!!
    We booked our Acropolis Tix with Clio Muse via Get Your Guide months before our trip. We chose the 8am entry to avoid the crowds. For some silly reason they don't send you the tickets with your receipt but via email the day before your tour. We were on a 30 hour flight from Australia without phone service, arriving in Athens the night before our Acropolis visit. We were twentieth in line at 7:30 am, waited nearly an hour and then were refused entry, being told to come back in the afternoon. We showed her our original 8am booking on our receipt but bad luck, we were turned away. I managed to phone Clio Muse and we were offered 10 am tix instead of the 1pm they sent us. So we queued up again with the hoards and were herded along (see pics). So upset! Totally ruined the first day of our holiday. DON'T BOOK WITH THEM!!

    Easy to use and interesting stories
    Once you download the app and your audio guides and ticket it’s all pretty easy to use. The guides were very clear and easy to listen to. It was easy to pause or skip around if you wanted to. Inevitably, the routes around some of the sites had been changed with works going on, but the interactive map in the app made it straightforward to work out where you should be and how to get there. All in all, we’d thoroughly recommend these guides and tickets. One improvement would be to have the ticket accessible from within the guides themselves so that you don’t have to go back to find your ticket once you’ve followed the directions to the site. There was an option to download the PDF ticket but we couldn’t get that to work.

    Expensive pass, not worth the money
    For me, it was not so convenient. March 25 a National Holiday, of course, everything closed. But on March 24 I needed all my time to visit the Acropolis, only. And then, on March 27, came the big surprise: Kerameikos, the Roman Agora, and all other small sites closed at 3 pm. We were only able to visit the Acropolis Museum and the Ancient Agora. I spent 108 euros por 2 people to visit only the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum and the Ancient Agora.

    Like stepping back in history
    Castel Sant' Angelo's self guided tour with the e-ticket was like stepping back in history. The audio guide told hidden stories, turning the visit into a journey of discovery.

    I would actually recommend it
    Went to Athens during Christmas holidays with a couple friends. I came across Clio Muse Tours and we downloaded the city tour guide. I would highly recommend it as a great way to navigate through the historic parts of Athens and see some of the most interesting monuments of Greece. I think it is very enjoyable and easy to follow, it's a nice addition to your trip. I'd love if it also had some food recommendations along the way.

    Total waste of time and money
    Customer service is a catastrophe. The fees are booked immediately, but we were notified of the time of the visit and the tickets were issued just 30 minutes before the visit. Our two tickets were for different time slots. Audio guide didn’t have any more information than our guide book. A complete waste! And a frustrating complete lack of customer support.

    Very happy
    A fantastic set of guides and tickets (read the information - download guides and tickets before you set off!!). Highly recommended! We had to change our Acropolis booking due to illness and it was a simple process. Asimina was so helpful on the phone and was able to move our time slot forwards 24 hours. Very happy customers!!

    No problems
    All tickets worked with no issues. Audio tour also worked with no problems. Tickets available to download the day before, so keep that in mind if you won’t have internet access.

    We only listened to 10 minutes then couldn’t get into it
    Other people recommended this but it just wasn’t for us, I guess. I couldn’t get into it. I bought for 4 devices and we all gave up.

    Too much
    We listened to about 20 min and after that we stopped. Had we listened to everything we would have been at the Parthenon for hours. It was an extremely hot day. We were there right when they opened at 8am and left around 930. It was already 96 degrees at that time. Really wished we had done a small guided tour instead.

    Audio tour with app
    Plenty of information during the audio tour. You have to download an app called Clio Muse yours. As it was peak season when we went it was useful to buy the tickets in advance as the booking office at the entrance seemed closed although their sign did say it was cheaper.

    Do not miss it!
    Clio Muse Tours in Athens were simply amazing! The app made sightseeing a breeze, and the stories shared breathed life into the ancient landmarks. Highly recommended!
