Acropolis Walking Tour, Including Syntagma Square and Historical City Center

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. On 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.

Skip the Line Acropolis of Athens Tour

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.

Our guide Stavroula was really knowledgeable and proficient in English. we had a great time with her and learned so much more. I can really recommend this tour. Too bad that they didn't include Agora on this tour due to the virus.

What a wonderful and enthusiastic review! Thank you so much! It’s true that the morning tour has a special feeling, because the atmosphere and the vibes are so relaxed and peaceful! However, we also offer different time slots, so our customers can decide which time slot suits them best according to their personal programs and needs! :)

This is a great way to see the Acropolis so that you know exactly what you are looking at. Vicky was an amazing local guide. We got queue skip tickets, the tour starts at 11.30 am and last for around 1.5 hrs. You get to visit the Acropolis, Parthenon, Erechtheion, Propylaia, Nike Temple, the Dionysus Theater and Sanctuary. Our group was 10 people from all over the world! Vicky answered all my questions and even gave me some great Greek recommendations too! I did the Walking Food Tour with Despina previously and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND both for an extremely cultural experience with absolute expert local guides. It was very COVID safe and you could easily hear Vicky word for word with masks on :)))
