What people are saying about Ancient Agora of Athens

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 2,149 reviews

Going in winter means all rates are reduced anyway, if you go to all 7 then this is worth it but otherwise check beforehand. You have to go to the acropolis at the date&time booked, and then even though the website/ticket says only valid until that date you do have 5 days to do everything else. We called up the company as it was so confusing online how long you had to do the 7 sites (as doing them all in 1 day with decent amount of time at each, with some rest, is unrealistic) and they were USELESS and said you had to do them all in one day - this is NOT true. You only have to do the acropolis at the time you choose, I hope this review helps people who like to be sure of what they’re booking. Amazing sites and it did save us a bit of money, super easy to scan through with the passes (even if they go to the ‘previous bookings’ section after the acropolis, you can still use them) - would recommend.

This activity is highly recommended if you want to see the highlights of Athens. The tour guide was a perfect combination of fun stories and educational facts. The fat bikes were really cool and very practical since Athens has a lot of hills. You feel very free on these vehicles and euphoric as you speed through a beautiful city. In short, recommended for everyone!

This was a wonderful way to tour the Acropolis and gives you a bigger picture of what you are seeing. Listen to a bit ahead of time so you know which gate to enter (South Gate near the Acropolis Museum) and can focus on the storytelling and not worry about being in the right place. I used the tour a couple of times and I learned so much!

Worth it for the price as it is easy to use and allows you into multiple sights, even some that we might have missed.

just use the ticket to scan to enter the site easy.
