Full description
Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the tree-lined streets to the foothills of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Acropolis of Athens, an ancient citadel and one of the world’s most revealing archaeological sites. Head for the south slope of the Acropolis to avoid the main crowds. Then stop at the ticket office to collect your tickets and make your way inside to see the bounty of ancient treasures that await. Along the way, visit the Theatre of Dionysus, a 5th-century amphitheater that is often cited as the birthplace of the performing arts. Hear about its history and imagine it filled with the theatergoers of Ancient Greece. Stop at the Dionysus Sanctuary, dedicated to the Greek god of wine and fertility. Once inside the Acropolis, get up-close to important sights, such as the Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike, and Parthenon. Pause to take photos of these fascinating ruins, and learn their history from your guide. Once at the summit of the sacred hill, take in the sweeping panoramas of Athens. Learn about the excavations, and get an insight into the citadel’s ruins. Hear about surrounding monuments, such as Mars Hill and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.  Your tour concludes at the summit of the Acropolis, leaving you free to continue exploring the site on your own. You can choose between an early morning, morning or afternoon guided tour.

My family and I had a great experience with the Acropolis Guided Walking Tour. Kimon, our guide was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, thorough in the subject matter and welcoming with questions. He provided an excellent tour and I would highly recommend "Get Your Guide" for this tour. If you are fortunate to have Kimon as your tour guide, you will be very happy.

We had a lovely weather day in January for this tour. Sun with a breeze. The tour was about 12 people, so a nice size and our guide was knowledgeable and engaged. I would highly recommend going off season as there was still a good crowd, but enough space to take your photos.

Eli was fantastic showing us around the Acropolis! She was able to navigate a very diverse group through all of the areas at the foot and on top of the Acropolis. Her insight into the ancient history and modern day knowledge of the area helped us truly understand the importance of the temples and amphitheaters.
