It is, of course, possible to explore the ruins of the Acropolis independently. But without an understanding of ancient Greek religion, culture, and history, it can be tough to tell exactly what you’re looking at—let alone what it all means. This guided walking tour takes the confusion out of the Acropolis and leaves you free to continue exploring once you’re done.

Visit local shops, and get a more intimate look at the Varvakeios market than you would if you explored on your own. With each bite of loukoumades (honey dumplings), bougatsa (sweet or savory pastry), olives, and other Greek specialties, you get first-hand insight into Greek culture.

Roaming the antiquities on Athens’ Acropolis slopes by yourself may give you only a sketchy picture of their history and risks you missing some must-sees. With this small-group walking tour, a guide shows you around and sheds light on each sight’s past. Plus, the tour begins at Syntagma Square, so you cover some of Athens’ more modern highlights, including the Parliament. Admission to the Acropolis is at your own expense.

This works despite a casual approach to organisation. Our guide was knowledgeable but the pace was hot so you needed to be nimble. Would have been improved by the use of earphones. Recommended for all who can keep up.

The tour was average. You have to pay more when you meet her. I don't think she gave us anymore information that we couldn't read ourselves. I would definitely go with another tour that had a historian or archaeologist tour guide!
