Full description

Enjoy skip-the-ticket line access and discover the cradle of Western civilization on a guided visit to the Acropolis. Choose from either a small-group or private guided experience and indulge in tasty Greek treats when you upgrade to include a street food tour in Athen's old town.

At the start of the tour, meet your dedicated guide at a hot spot for traditional Greek delicacies, where there are restroom facilities and you can purchase water or snacks.

Let your guide take you onto Pnyx Hill, which is the actual birthplace of democracy. Continue to immerse yourself in Ancient Greek history on a 50-minute tour of the world-famous Acropolis in Athens.

Admire the stunning architecture of the Parthenon Temple, learn the importance of the Erechtheion Temple, and hear myths and stories about ancient Athens.

After your guided tour, you have the option to stay on the hill to explore further at your own pace and enjoy the view over the city and up to the Aegean Sea.

Your guide will show you a different route towards the south exit so that you also see the Altar of Asclepius and the Theater of Dionysus, the birthplace of theater drama.

Upgrade and extend your tour by adding a Greek street food experience. Follow your guide to explore additional areas of the Acropolis hill and the south slope. Afterward, walk into the Old Town for a guided tasting of popular Greek street foods.

Natasha was our guide for the 2 hour Acropolis tour. She is a wonderful story teller and you can tell she is very passionate about her job. She was patient and warm and she made it a very enjoyable as well as educational experience. We highly recommend this tour and Natasha in particular.

We had an excellent time! Our group tour with Kimon ended up being a private tour due to booking towards the end of the tourist season which was a very nice bonus. Kimon was a great guide. Very knowledgeable, sharp, and a great personality and sense of humor that kept our attention throughout the tour. Would easily recommend to other visitors.

So happy we elected to take a guided tour! Our guide was superb! Provided so much background and color commentary along with historical facts. She really came across as though she enjoyed her job. Timing was perfect as there was a long line to get in just as we were leaving. She even offered to take our pictures at various points.
