Ana was an excellent tour guide in our trip to the Acropolis. I felt that I was able to return home and give a great description of the Acropolis not only because of her knowledge, but also the way she presented it. Ana made sure to make plenty of stops (in the shade) when giving us information. It didn't seem like any of our group members were struggling to keep up. She is funny and keeps things interesting! I didn't realize that I hadn't booked the tour for the indoor museum as well (make sure you do if you want it) but she was so kind to help guide us to where we needed to go so we could see the museum. I am so glad we had Ana as our guide and I would recommend this tour for sure so that you know what history you are stepping into!

10/10 would recommend! I can't remember the name of our tour guide but she was awesome. She was incredibly knowledgeable and answered so many of our questions. She was also attentive to our groups needs and always stopped in the shade to give us history background at each step. If you visit the Acropolis on your own, you can probably go up & down within an hour. But I'm glad we did it with a guide to learn the history. I also love doing these group tours to meet people from other parts of the world!

Great information to help you understand the site.

Our guide and initial greeters were kind, knowledgable and concerned for our experience. They met us in the Metro station as promised and found a place nearby for us to use the toilet at the last minute, offered cold water, warned us of pickpockets etc. The guide was informative, made time for personal requests, and showed particular concern for w/1 couple w/medical issues. The only disappointing thing was that in trying to meet personal requests/questions we ended up w/only 10 mins to explore on our own at the Acropolis top. It also seemed like the facility closed earlier than normal, but I'm not sure why. It worked out fine and is worth the money and time to see this amazing historical site.
