Overview
One for all you history buffs! Discover Athens' ancient history on this fascinating city walking tour with an expert local guide! Venture inside the ancient Acropolis of Athens — a UNESCO World Heritage site — and discover just how this ancient monument towers above the city below. You'll also see such sites as the Greek Parliament House and Syntagma Square in the heart of central Athens. All entrance fees are at your own expense.
Highlights
  • See the highlights of the Acropolis slopes in Athens on a walking tour
  • Navigate the sights with a guide so you don’t miss must-sees or details
  • Learn the history of Syntagma Square, Dionysus Theatre, and more
  • Limited to nine people, with Acropolis entry at own expense
What to Expect
Greet your guide in Central Athens and stop to see the ancient artifacts displayed at Syntagma Square metro station. View the treasures, including an ancient beehive and tombstones, and learn how they were unearthed during construction work here. Walk on to Greece’s Parliament building to admire its exterior, as your guide explains its former use as a royal palace, and then delve into historical Athens. Stroll along streets lined with stately buildings and see antiquities, including the Temple of Olympian Zeus, before hitting pedestrianized Dionysiou Areopagitou Street to explore the Acropolis’ slopes. Gaze up at the Acropolis’ temples, including the Parthenon, and pass the Theatre of Dionysus, Philopappou Hill, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and Mars Hill. Here, admire the panoramas over Athens, as you learn how St. Paul once preached from the rocks. Your tour concludes at the Acropolis summit.

Had a great guide (mia) that went out of her way to make sure I saw all the key sights and even some lesser known gems. Would highly recommend and would ask for the same guide again.

The tour was pretty good. We basically hit all of the historic monuments in 3 hours. Very informative. I really enjoyed it especially watching the changing of the guards! Acropolis was really cool as well!
