Where you'll be

The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historical significance, the most famous being the Parthenon temple. The Acropolis and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization and form the greatest architectural and artistic complex bequeathed by Greek Antiquity to the world.

Annie is a wonderful tour guide. She was very interesting and made an effort to include the interests of all the people in her presentation. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours. Highly recommend.

Unfortunately due to weather we weren’t able to go to the acropolis, so we went to the museum instead. But our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful! We learned way more than we would have if we went to the museum on our own. It was worth it to go with a guide.

Annie was a fantastic guide, I really enjoyed her pace and breadth of knowledge. She made an effort to get to know the group and I liked that she asked us questions to get us thinking. She also had good voice projection so I could choose to listen to her with or without the ‘whispers’. This tour was also great because I got to know about reduced price tickets for non-EU citizens under 25 years! (Though the promotion ends 31st Oct 2021). Overall, the acropolis was a much more interesting experience with a guide, and this was the perfect tour for it!

Cette visite guidée a été la solution parfaite pour visiter l’Acropole ! Anna parle parfaitement français et connaît bien son sujet… et le sourire en plus ! Je recommande fortement.

I really enjoyed the experience. Great history knowledge and storytelling left me feeling satisfied. The props and role play helped set the stage and ring focus to the main points.
