Excellent. We were unable to make the morning tour, but caught up with the tour in the afternoon. It was excellent!!! The Temple of Poseidon is a hidden treasure and gets you outside of the city! Highly recommend!

The morning walking tour was excellent, especially because our guide Dora! She was astounding. It was like being transported in time. The Acropolis is magnificent, as well as the views from Cape Sounion. I recommend this tour.

We had an excellent walking tour of many beautiful places in Athens with Eleni. She kept a good pace that wasn't too fast and kept us informed of the sights as we went along. There was ample time for photo taking along the way. At the Acropolis we were given the tour and the history before being given time to ourselves to further explore and take pictures. The afternoon trip to Cape Sounion was very scenic and the Temple of Poseidon was breathtaking to behold. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

I had a wonderful time on both tours! Knowledgeable guides. Walked away with great experience and memories!

An outstanding experience! Be prepared for lots of walking and strenuous hiking on narrow walkways and slippery marble. Go anytime other than the summer as it becomes very crowded then. Carry water with you! It was remarkable to see the Acropolis lit up at night! It was a remarkable experience! I think they should sell t-shirts saying, “I climbed the Acropolis”!!!

Both the Acropolis Walking Tour + afternoon tour to Cape Sounion were perfectly organized, the guide was very friendly and competent to answer any questions of the participants. She gave comprehensive information on both tours.

This was a fun filled day of learning Greek history and seeing important sights both in Athens and south of Athens. The guides were very informative and I learned a lot about what happened here thousands of years ago. I am not sure which part I enjoyed best as both were great!

This was the perfect way to visit the Acropolis and understand what you’re looking at. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We went in October and the sun was hot and it’s a lot of walking and climbing so being in good shape, wearing a hat and taking water are important.

It was a great way to see all of the main sites which gave us time to explore on our own the next few days!
• Submitted 05 Sep 2018
Worth the day to see two of the three major sites - the Temple of Poseidon and the Parthenon.
• Submitted 01 Sep 2018
Both the walking tour and the half day to Poseidon are a must do while you are in Athens. Informative, just long enough, great views and knowledgeable guides. A perfect day.

Loved this tour. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. There were some crowds at the Acropolis due to the time, it was around noon, but it is expected so dress comfortable. The temple of Poseidon was also worth the long drive, it was spectacular.

This tour covered almost everything you need to know about Athens. Its a walking tour. We walked almost close to 9km that considering the high inclined steps and slopes. Its very tiring but it was worth it. No one would think about the pain when you reach the attractions. Just amazing. Our guide was very detailed and gave us full insight of everything we asked her.

For a first-timer in Athens like I was, this tour was definitely a solid introduction to the city's major sights and centers. Both tours they operate as a sort of 2-for-1 the guide for the Cape Sounion bus ride was different than the morning walking tour greatly simplified the process of getting around not only the city streets, but the monuments as well.

Always the problem I find with 'guided tours' is how much of the guiding is right. On both these tours the guides were informative but not too controlling. I like to be able to wander off at times and do my own thing and the guides on both trips achieved this. There was also a reasonable gap between the two tours for a bit 'free and easy' exploration.

Must see!

This was a great tour. Cape Sounion was great and I loved hearing the history of the Acropolis. I would do it again.

Both of these tours were wonderful because of the guides. Both Mariana and Theodora were knowledgeable, funny and most of all passionate about the Greek culture. You will have a fun and educational time.
